Trying to get back in the saddle

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I have tracked faithfully for over two years, but haven't for the last two weeks. There has been a lot of distractions for me the past several weeks. I have been helping in our VBS and I did enjoy that. One of my daughters lost her job and apartment by making bad choices. My oldest son was let go of his job with out notice and he has three children to support. I have been baby sitting more since school is out. But it is time to make better choices for my health and joy.

Thank you to my spark friends that have reached out to encourage me. Eva and Sandra I thank especially. emoticon

Some of our VBS children in line for lunch. Last week I didn't have any trouble getting in extra steps. LOL

    Stress definitely derails everyone. There will never be enough help, money, to make the path smooth for your kids. All you can do is watch, give hugs, and pray that they find their way. The gov't seems to always need probation officers.
    There are jobs, and surveys online that pay.
    Also your kids need to call 211, to get help with services. they will get help from the gov't. It's knowing where to look, that may be the problem, but 211 can help. And go on line to find food banks. Just remember this too will pass,your mother had the depression.
    I am glad that you are occupying your time doing something valuable like helping kids. It's amazing how much joy something like that can bring into your life. Many times in order to feel not bored, and think about being depressed, we need to occupy our self, and thoughts. lol, eva
