Life is a struggle   Leave a comment

Every once in a while I want to throw in the towel.

Just say I quit.

I’m done.

I don’t want to do any of this anymore…..

But most days I realize there are so many people worse off then I am.

So many who struggle to make ends meet and are sickly or caring for someone who is sickly.

So many people have no homes, no food, no clothes.

So I need to quit complaining about my job and be thankful that I have one.

I need to be grateful that I woke up today and not complain that I am tired from getting up so early.

I need to remember how blessed I am and not look at the negativity.

I came from a very low income childhood.

We lived on welfare so we had food but we were poor.

There were never any luxuries.

I live like a queen compared to how my mother lived.


But I won’t lie to you, once in a while, about once every six weeks to two months I think to myself  “What is it all for?  Why do I fight the fight?  Wouldn’t dying be so much simpler?”

Then I get to go to Heaven and live with my Lord and His son…..

I attribute these thoughts to the depression that runs in my family.

It runs rapid in my family.

From my mother to all of my siblings…to a few of my children…..

I get down and blue every now and then but it is nothing like others feel.

My wish for those who are struggling is turn your prayers to the Lord.

He will be there for you.
