Daily, it seems, I’m putting new information in the e-book. In talking with people regarding their experiences, one woman told me about “hardship circumstances” and her dealings with the bank. Her husband died suddenly, leaving her with no cash flow and a large mortgage. She spoke with the bank and they worked with her to reduce her mortgage and she’s living in their home until she decides it’s time to move forward. Let’s face it, banks aren’t in the home ownership business; they are in the banking business and, generally, will work with folks to arrive at a solution that benefits both.
I’m not kidding myself. This book won’t be popular among some industries. Those industries whose business it is to separate you from your hard earned money won’t like what I’m writing. Tough! It’s what we need to know to make our lives, and the lives of our loved ones, a tad easier during what is going to be terribly difficult circumstances. It’s also what we need to know to keep more of our hard earned money in our pockets!
This week has been difficult and, again, I’m reminded of one step forward, two back. I’m also reminded God is in control and, this week, I’ve needed to call on Him more than usual. The grieving and healing process is…strange. While I can’t say I’m happy, I can say, I’m not as unhappy as I was and that’s moving forward.
I am blessed to have meaningful work, a few bone deep friends, good health…yes, even including that nasty fall, animals who are healthy, a beautiful place to live. this has been a week of focusing on the blessings.
When I was 18, Mom sent me away to a Bible college. She thought it would build character and, in retrospect, she was right. What I remember most about that year was the poem, The Weaver. She gave me a bookmark with that poem and the image of a loom printed on the bookmark. I still have it, it still speaks to my heart.
