Must. Have. Patience.
For the most part I do. I mean my family and I have been through soooo much in the past 13 months and we are still here...still strong...still struggling a bit.
It's funny because since Christmas it hasn't felt like we're struggling...we went out like most families in Maryville for dinner and movies and even spent a day shopping. We were able to do those things because of gift cards and me working...all of which I am grateful.
Today, as the financial stresses creep back in I was reminded of the monster that lies in wait. He is ugly and scary and I wish he'd go away. It's like when I was a kid and I was convinced there was a monster in my closet. There I was, covers pulled up tight, under my chin...eyes barely peeking out...scared he'd pounce and gobble me up.
My husband and I are waiting on something BIG...we think it's gonna happen in the next few days. Believe me...you will know.
When that day comes...my entire story will come out with it. It must.
Because I know that if I got through all this the past year...you can get through anything, too. I know it!!
