Life could be great one minuet and not so great the next.Many people take life for granted,they think that nothing will ever happen to them until one day it does.I was once one of them people,my husband was once making 6 figures a year when he was in a motorcycle accident that prevented him from working.Fist off thank god he was alive and after a few months of therapy he was able to walk again.We took all things for granted thinking everything would be ok,we were so wrong with in two months of going through our savings ,loosing our dream home and cars four wheelers boats etc.We came to the point of almost being homeless thank god again that we were able to find something we could aforred on what we make selling off our things at yard sales and ebay.Any how to make a long story short it has been a long year we are still waiting to see if my husband will get disability so we can stop worrying about how we can come up with money to pay the bills.My family and i learned not to take things for granted any more and to be happy with what we have.How would you deal with this live change? would you still be married would you loose your mind?

changes whether it is good or bad it is better to be shared with the people ou cared. to hold their hands and say that we can do this. there are a lot of changes that has come to my life and i faced it with head high and holding my children hands. when i left my husband seven years ago tagged my four children with me it was harder than i expect it would be. i turn from a mom to a mom and dad and a working person all at the same time. it was very hard and tiring, but doing this for my children is very inspiring as well.

Yes our children can be very inspiring,they are our lives and we have to hold our heads high for them. they understand more then people think they do.

I would still be married only way it would end if he cheated on me. I believe going thru things good and bad makes you a stronger person. Unlike you I have lived my life waiting for the next ball to drop. Since I was just turning 6 when JFK was killed I have grown unfortunately knowing that nothing is peaches and cream for a very long time. Soon after JFK, it was Robert and then MLK. Kent State Killing, Vietnam, and so on and so on. I have also now survived both attacks on the WTC, being on the 86th floor when the second plane flew into the South Tower. How I survived was by the grace of God. I now live in NM moving here two years ago and now looking for work. It hasn't been easy finding a job however I do believe God as a plan for me and someday I hope soon I will know what it is. Good luck and I hope and pray your husband gets the disability!

Corona, your picture is to make any person almost lose its mind. I feel you and your family are brave of heat and loves each other enough to stay together trough out rough times. That is precisely what love is all about. I know material things are awfully important, and more when you are in need, But the funny thing is that when we have plenty, we do not realize of all the "things" we really do not need to be happy, and boats, the cars,etc. while provide fun and a sense of abundance are not indispensable for happiness. Thanks God your husband is recupetating from the accident. This life change if you pull it together might bring something good. Open your eyes and your intuition, God sometimes draw croked lines so they will come out straight! Fill your heart with love for your husband and family, and Life could surprise you with a wonderful gift, after this big change. The way I take on changes that have come to my life is by embracing the challange day by day. You see I am 44 and I have lived a bit to learn not to take a beautiful day for granted! May God be with you all the way, have courage because the night is darker just before dawn!

Thank you for your kind words.Yes people do take for granted what they have,i know that i did it real woke me up and made me think that their are more important things in life then material things.The more people that realize that their are more important things in life then a fancy car or a big house the better the world would be.

Life is always a great challenge to all of us .... if life were not to challenge us then i guess it would be to boring to carry on with the same thing again and again. Personally I am quite adaptive and can easily make changes to my lifestyle according to my social and financial situation. For me though nothing is taken for granted. If i get something wonderful I thank god for it and I think that for some good deed sometime in the past today I have got it back. When I get a negative surprise I feel that this is one more test life has put in front of me and I need to overcome that obstacle and keep sailing in the vast ocean towards my destiny.

i am sorry for all your troubles. i to have been through alot in my lifetime. i have always had to live pretty close & could not or would not live above my means. so many people do that & get in trouble. that rainy day is always right around the corner ifound out a long time ago. i have been by myself for 40 years i guess, raised two boys by myself & worked like a dog to do it. so i can relate to some of your problems. in 2000 my health started to fail & it's been pretty much down hill since then, my sons are grown w/children & wives & i am so thankful for that. my youngest was a senior when i had a brain aneurysm. they didn't think i was going to make but thank god i did. i didn't mean to go on so long but just want u to know where there is a will there is a way. good luck to u. hope things improve soon for you.
