Ok. You hear it on the news everyday that we are in a recession. How many here would consider themselves struggling financially. I am talking to those who REALLY have it bad. I know I can say yes.

I'm also struggling somewhat. I have too many loans to repay.

I'm struggling financially, but not due to the recession. I just got myself into really deep debt, yup I was stupid. My main focus now is to find ways to make more money to start paying it off.

I can honestly luckily say that we have not been affected yet. I hope that we are not. I don't think my husband has even entertained that thought that we could be affected. He is in for a rude awakening because I feel that it is coming.

Actually I have a little bad. But not really bad because I'm blessed in other ways. God has truly been answering prayers in my family. Let me explain, My husband found out a week ago or a little more than a week ago that he would be laid off till Jan. 5th. Yes thru the Christmas season. And since we spent all of are money on Thanksgving weekend to go from SC to NY to see family we weren't prepared for it. After looking at are bills basically are finances we realized we were gonna be about $100. or so short on bills. Not sure what to do we prayed about it. And more things happen.. But I told my parents on are finances and about it all. And they came down for last week and paid for the whole week all the food everything. And than on top of that on Christmas they also blessed me with a dresser that I asked for except they gave me two which they took down from NY to here in South Carolina. And on top of that a help with bills blessing as a gift. I'm so overwhelmed with it that it's truly a blessing. Such a blessing I thank god and that it overwhelmed me so much I cryed. Such a weight lifted off my shoulders. There's only one other concern. My husband delievers parts to a company that works with Chrysler. So basicially We are not sure if his job will be there but I'll leave that in God's hands.
