Happy Saturday! I have to say, this morning I fixed a really good cup of coffee! Every drink was just as good as the first. I was shopping at Walmart yesterday and saw in the coffee section, Folgers Chocolate Truffle. I thought, 'hmm sounds good!' So I bought it and decided to give it a try this morning. Fixed a cup, put two scoops of coffee mate creamer, 2 Tbl of Sugar Free Raspberry Torani syrup. Oh delightful!
I picked up a magazine to read and came across this article that really fits my situation right now. I have been married for 31 years this June and we have been through alot of challenges throughout those years. Now, we are in a financial challenge, probably the biggest challenge we have ever faced.
My husband was laid off and we are trying to get a loan modification on our house. (Wow is that stressful! Tough to deal with the bank.) We face possibly loosing our house and not much we can do about it. So, when I came across this article paragraph it touched my heart strings. I began asking myself, "What am I doing? I keep getting angry at him!" He is my friend and we have to keep it together, I have to keep it together. Changed my whole thought process.
Let me read it to you...
Recession Rift #4:
His self-esteem went south when he got laid off and had to take lower-paying joy outside his field. Or your're the one pounding the pavement and wondering what just happened. (my scenario)
EMOTIONAL RESCUE: When the going gets tough, the smart marriage move is to bring on compassion--probably when you least feel like doing so. Don't grill your husband about whether he snt out resumes. Instead, ask exactly what kink of help he needs, then offer it. If your're th eone who lost your job, you should expect your husband to deliver the same tender loving care to you. But also turn to friends. You need to acknowledge your sadness, fears and frustrations, but don't let yourself wallow in the feelings.
So if any of your are facing challenges in your relationship, work together and pray for guidance! I have to say honestly, I pray, but I don't think I am praying deep inside my heart. I need to pray for strength for he and I. I don't want a material object pulling us apart. My house is a material object.
With that said everyone, I am wishing you all peace and love! Thank you for your support and stopping by to visit.
