thanks for the concern and prayers from everyone. I am so thankful that its a new year and I have a chance to make a fresh start. This last year has been a hard but things are getting a little better, or maybe we are just getting used to it. Elisha has been able to get her cash aid and SSI so she is not such a burden money wise. She still has tantrums that make me wonder what the heck we are thinking haveing her here. Over all she has been manageable thanks to Beth mostly. I hope ya all had a good new years eve thing, we didn't do much of anything. Cody had not taken a nap so he was getting a little cracky so we just did the home thing. I just want to end by saying good ridens to 2009.
I know this sounds crazy but we have allowed Elisha to come back to our house. She is pregenant and homeless so we felt like we had no choice. She has been behaving her self but Joey has been haveing fits about not being control of the house (like he ever was). We need your prayers now because we are trying to find some where for her to go. If any one knows of a homeless shelter or houseing that she can go to let us know.
its been a while since my last post. If any one cares I'm doing fine at my job but I am getting a little bored. We are having money problems still even though we seem to be working like crazy. I want to tell you that it is to easy to get caught up in the business of life and loose sight of what is important. Beth and I got so involved in making money that we started having some relationship problems. Making money is not bad, but when it becomes all you think about it will cause problems. Even if you think your relationship with your husband or wife is fine and that you don't need to work on it, please make it a priority. I don't want anyone to go through what I went through.
I want to post a blog but I do not have anything to write about. I am working with mental and physically disabled adults. I try to teach them how to live independently with the assistance of the government programs. I have found that a lot of the programs, that I would have said that could be cut to save tax money, are ones that a lot of people depend and pay my bills. I have also realized how lucky we are to have had a good family and the church in our lives. No matter how bad our lives seem, there are soooo many other people that have have things so much worse. Some of them get there because of their own bad choices but there are many more are there because they did not know better. Some may disagree but I would invite them to meet some of my clients.
You never know how crazy the world is until you think about it. What if normal signs like "no U turn" was on a Marry-go-round. What if there was a "stop" sign up about 50,000 feet in the air, or an "Exit" sign on a grave stone. I can think of more, but they are not ones I can put up here.
I am bummed out. Why you may ask? welllllllllll I thought that I was going to get a good grade on my group presentation and pass the class. I did not get the grade that I wanted because I crashed and burned, thus the bummyness. I may not be passing the class thusly not graduating. I will have to wait a year to retake the class but I will retake it because I do not quit. On a brighter note, I got a job helping people with disabilities and hardships. I will be going to clients homes and teaching them social skills and helping them get back on track. Anyway, pray for me life is up and down for me but I can take it.
As some of you know I will be getting my BA in social work soon if things work out right. The graduation will be the 23rd of May, but the party will be the second Saturday in June. We will have it at the park by our house, so come on everyone and have a burger on me.
