Being thankful for the little things in life

I’m doing something different… Multiple thoughts and updates in a single post until I have enough words to start a new one.

It’s kind of sad when you look around and see for yourself, first hand, the way the homeless people are living around here. My daughter keeps reminding me, “at least we have a roof over our head, a vehicle, and food” whereas they don’t.

Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find an apartment around here. I emailed a TON of places yesterday and not a single one responded to me today. I honestly don’t understand that. I’m still trying to find something. We even looked at living in an RV or camper and they want too much money for them. This is yet another time when I feel as though money is evil… Let me explain…

Could you imagine a world without money? Like everyone was on the same status and we all worked for the things we needed. I’m not talking about communism, just an equal society where our basic needs are met. As humans we really should be taking care of each other instead of rushing to see how many things we can acquire. It’s not like we can take them with us when we die anyway. So, why acquire them now?

There’s so much going on right now… I don’t honestly know where to focus my energies first because everything is so important. I woke up this morning pondering what to do and how to get it done. We need to find a new place to live ASAP, but at the same time I also have my writing business and my ministry week begins again tomorrow through Saturday. Sunday I already have plans with our church. So, it’s about fitting everything in the best I can.

    Yes, it is very sad. My husband and I was on the verge of eviction not to long back and it was scary to say the least. we didn’t know where we would go, if that had happened. Luckily it worked out. Times are hard and we all do the best we can to just get by. I hope you find a new place and I wish you well.

    I pray you find an affordable permanent place to live. Rent is high everywhere. The rent has skyrocketed in my area. Rent is now $200 or more higher than what I currently pay. I can’t afford to move or loose this place.

    Fitting so much work into a small space in time is always hard. The housing issues have always been difficult for many. Some just don’t realize because they have not had the issues you mention here.
