I am sorry it has been a couple of months since I last update, especially after my last post. So now for updates.
My husband got a job in March. It is at a local hotel that is VERY busy so he is working long hours. I am thankful he is willing to put in those kind of hours for me and the kids. He is a good hub and takes good care of us. 🙂
My second son is still at his boarding school. He had some more bumpy patches with running away and stuff but is doing better now. The good news is that he is safe and he has no F’s in any of his classes. That doesn’t sound like much but he has most of his grades at C’s and I haven’t seen that since about 4th grade. So YAY!
Hub managed to fix my van. He had to hand craft a whole new wiring harness for the fuel system because purchasing one was a two month wait and a huge cost. Thank goodness for YouTube and the internet. There were so many wonderful people with helpful advice so we could actually do it. My van is currently in the body shop getting a new back gate because a guy smashed into it at a red light. The good news is that his insurance covered it all.
So for any of you out there who are struggling… if your life is too much… too hard or you feel like you are drowning in bad circumstances like I did, please don’t give up hope. It takes time but I promise you, things work themselves out. If your life is going great, please take the time to look around you because a friend or family member may be struggling more than you think. Be their lifesaver by lending a hug and a smile. I was at the point of crying myself to sleep each night, having chest pains and feeling hopeless. I also want to thank you guys who emailed, called, commented, etc. Even if I didn’t speak to you directly, I read each one and I love you for taking the time to send comfort. I really needed it. You guys are the best. Thanks for the life preserver Kimi. 🙂
