I think that our lives are full of ups and downs. There is always going to be something to deal with.
First of all you are not a loser. You are a working mother. That is a lot. You keep a roof over you and your son's head and food on the table. You should be proud of all of your accomplishments. You are a survivor.
Mochiah has a point, try a local church, the salvation army or even human resources. They may be able to help you until your income tax check comes. Also do you know anybody that you could get wood from until you get some help?
Life is going to throw you all kind of curveballs. It is how you handle the hurdles. There will always be some kind of change. I know that you will be able to handle it.
Good luck to you. Try to remember you are a survivor. You can handle this. And keep in mind all of your accomplishments, you are a strong person and a good parent. Don't forget that.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I can relate to how you feel when you say you feel like the worlds biggest loser. But sometimes when you go to bed on it, things look a lot different in the morning. Having a chat with the neighbour and borrowing some wood would be a good idea. If the roles were reversed and your neighbour came and borrowed some wood from you, would you think any less of her? Its great that you are thinking about the care of your little boy as well. I hope the ground thaws out for you soon.
Debbikay.......Hurrah, God was watching over you as you were surely an angel appearing out of the cold for your neighbor. How I wish you were closer as some of the members know, I am married to Mr. Wood Cutter of Minnesota. He chops, cuts, splits and keeps the home fires burning. One thing we have that we would gladly share is wood.I am so glad you got your furnace going. I believe you can prevent the water from freezing to fast in the pipe by leaving a trickle of water running. I know I have heard that somewhere.Depression can be a vicious merry-go-round but remember you are strong, you have your faith and you have us now. Remember to be kind to yourself.
Try to save room for some laughter in you day. Sometimes after crying all day and things seem hopeless I will go online and see some silly thing or a funny video and it makes me laugh.
I am so glad that everything worked out for you! It definately looks like someone was looking after you! How is your neighbour? I hope the break was not too bad. Perhaps if your neighbour lives on her own, you could all live in your house and share resources? I ama great believer in karma... What goes around, comes around. Good things happen to good people and thats obviously what has happened this time! Rock on Summer! lol
Today is a new day.................. Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much >Kitt
