five and ten

I am being nickel and dimed to death. I seriously cannot keep any money in my checking account. Moreover, I don't even have a savings account. I am flat broke as some would say. And it is taking its toll on me mentally, physically, and spiritually. I am saying my prayers, but it is difficult to get past this right now. The enemy wants us to feel isolated, which is easy for him to do right now in my case. I do feel isolated. I am trying to trust that God has the ultimate plan for me, and I must stick to being faithful and obedient. That's hard to do, though. Sounds great when it is said, but when it is being done, it is a different story.
In brighter news, my friend is pregnant with her third child. She and her husband have been trying to have another child since 2008 with a couple of miscarriages in that time period. I am so happy for her. She is being very cautious about telling others because of the miscarriages, so I was one of the first ones to know. I'm excited for her and I hope everything will turn out alright. She deserves it. Holding a baby in your arms is one of the most precious things!
This rain is killing me. I must go out in it several times to pick up my daughers from this or that, and it is miserable. I wonder if it will all freeze tonight? A two hour delay would be wonderful!!!

So the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Nice to see you understand the game.
