Times are tough.

I know that times are tough for everyone right now. I see it everywhere. At work, not much work right now, (it's just that time of year for me) money is tight lots of bills to pay and Christmas is right around the corner, bills are falling behind, people are losing their houses, I see it online both on and off Etsy, in various chat rooms and forums, with all that is going on right now it's easy to see how the stress can get to you and your marriage. (Mine included) So what can we do about it? We can HOPE, PRAY, BELIEVE, BE THANKFUL, BE A FRIEND.

HOPE that things will be better soon and that there is a brighter future just around the corner.

PRAY for the strength and courage to make it through the hard times ahead.

BELIEVE in yourself and that there is a reason for all things and that things will get better.

BE THANKFUL for all that you have, remember that there are those who have less.

BE A FRIEND to those who need it. Chances are you know someone who just needs someone to talk to.

Remember that others will follow your example. Choose to be the difference you want to see in others. I'll try to come up with ideas to help us all save money in future posts. I know things are tight for everyone right now but do come back soon. Have courage, believe in yourself, because I believe in you.

God bless and keep you.
