My Wishes

Yea, Peace is right up there on the top of that list, but it's more like Peace between my boys at Thanksgiving Dinner! They never seem to grow up! I guess I'm having a pity party for myself today. Don't we all have those days? When the world seems grey and nothing seems to be in our favor? Today is mine! I can't believe another Thanksgiving is coming up and Barry is still out of work. Another year has passed and I'm still saying "when you get a job". I just got back from the CCA pantry and making that's making me feel even more down then I did before. They are so wonderful there, but taking charity is never an easy thing. We were a middle class family. We used to have a buck or two to spend on silly stuff. Not anymore. Where would we be, where would so many families be without the help of others. It's a humbling experience. I still feel we should help out and do. Barry took a bag full of canned goods to school yesterday for the can food drive. We have so many, thanks to CCA, and others have needs too. I got a beautiful bird too today. It's all so nice, but what I really want, is a JOB for my husband. A job for me would be nice too. I keep applying, but nothing either. I want him to finish school, finally, and go to work. Maybe get some insurance for me. Little things like, you know, mean alot!
I have got to go and put away all the food I received this morning. I don't think anyone is coming to help me, so I better get a move on it.
Love to you all who read my ramblings daily!

  1. Cute card! We know so many people that have been laid off and still are. My husband's been laid off twice in the last two years. My brother is moving across the country for a job because his current position is being eliminated. I just pray for health and happiness for friends and family. Sometimes that's all we can do. We give when we can and we pray through good times and bad. You and your family are in my prayers. Hugs!
