Wow...this economy has really gotten me down. I've been away from the site for a couple of weeks because just the thought of spending money for Christmas depressed me. Trying to find a job...but thats like finding a needle in a hay stack around here. One bright note my husband did receive a small raise on his paycheck.

I need to pull up my boot straps and get back out there. I need to give it all to God and he'll take care of the rest. I have to have faith and I have to believe that things will get better not only for my family but for everyone.

I'm feeling better about Christmas now. I some how truly forgot the real reason behind Christmas. And that real reason has came back to me and has made me feel so much better.

I believe because I have my faith back now, He has come through for my family. Out of the blue yesterday I received a call from a couple who attends church with my family. They decided to buy each of my daughters a American Girl Doll for Christmas. They had no clue that both of my daughters had those dolls on the top of their Christmas lists. So now even though I know it's not a going to be a great "commercial" Christmas at my house, my daughters will be extremely happy. That in return makes me extremely happy.
So all of you out there that have been feeling the same as myself, please just remember, with God all things are possible, and keep your faith!!
