1 down 7 more to go

who would have thought that the runt would have sold first? I always felt bad saying it but the runt is really not all that cute either, well compared to the others anyways. I am happy to have sold 1 and we have had a few more calls over the last couple of days, so we hope it won't take much longer for the rest to go.

J is having a better day today, yesterday was a bad day and he fought a little bit of depression. I so feel it when he is in that state. I got a little anxiety about having to go back to work and resisted within myself to apply at 4 new job postings that came up yesterday. But I did, I might get this job at the bank but since it doesn't start until the end of March, I kind of have to keep looking for something that I can get sooner.

J's parents have covered us financially for this month, for that we are truly thankful! if our parents were not able to support us I don't know what we would have done! I wrote a letter to our local MLA (local congressman) to ask for help in pointing us in the right direction for getting any coverage J is entitled too. The doctor has still not filled out his paper work for the disability and if he doesn't do it Monday than I am going into the office and stay there till he does fill it out! I know specialists are busy but his secretary could fill it out for him for goodness sakes!

It is so hard to say when J will be able to go back to work. The doctor doesn't have any answers so we are thinking about flying J to Vancouver to get a second opinion. Meanwhile we keep going, taking things day by day, standing on what we DO know and thanking God for the manifestation of our miracle! We also have started thinking out side the box and are exploring a couple of different business opportunities for us. I am not always sure where the line is between Faith and being realistic, there is a possibility that J might not be able to return to the regular work force. I am looking in to taking a course to get my license in the Property Management field. This is what I know and I know J would be good at it too. Talking about it gave us some hope that we can still make it, work wise that is! On a personal note, J and I have been getting a long so well. We have been with each other 24/7 since Dec 17!!! and hardly any fights or bickering at all.......this is amazing, I think, especially under the circumstances! So we are thankful for that as well.

Well have a great weekend and here's to the rest of the puppies selling!!

"the first shall be last
and the last shall be first"

I am so glad that your families have been able to help you out. It is do important that you have a good support system and it sounds like you do.

I am hoping that God shows you what to do. I think you are an amazing wife to J. I know it must be hard, harder than I think I'm sure. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

Blessings to you as you go through these hard times. I don't know how you keep up with all the puppies on top of it all!!

I got chills when I read this post.

This is weird, last night when I was praying for you I got a picture of you handling rental properties for absent owners. Like collecting rent and paying the mortgage and utilites for them.

I had a friend that did that from home, she made a few hundred dollars each week.

My prayer is for great grace during this time. I have been where you are exactly. When my husband became disabled for about a year it was difficult. If it weren't for family, well we would not have made it either.

As far as the dr's office goes. I work for a specialist and I can tell you, I have filled more than my share of forms and then just have the dr. sign on the dotted line. It's not that difficult to do, especially if they have worked in the speciality for a few years.

Thanks for sharing so honestly. Nadine

"Faith without works is dead" James 2:20
He has given you an inner witness - a light inside- to show you the way when things look dark. Then you have to act on it!
It's not whatever will be will be - it's taking action - speaking and acting on His Word.
Keep pressing onward. He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek HIM.
love

Wow. Have I been gone that long? I just got caught up on your last 10 posts. The puppies are so cute and growing fast. Congrats on selling one. I LOVE your perspective! Beautiful. Great Psalm. Congrats on your year of blogging. I'm so happy that you and J are getting along so well under the difficult circumstances. And praise God for your parents who can help you in your times of need. I hope you get a job you'll love soon! God bless you guys.

Kinda puts perspective on all those "struggling" scriptures that Paul wrote, how He perfects and our relationships through our trials, if we allow Him. That is so cool that you and J are growing closer through this difficult time.
Love your thoughts on perspective.
Still praying for you...and still missing you.

Oh, I can't stand it when dr's take their time...don't they realize that by doing so they are hurting their patients??? I don't get it!

I hope J continues to feel better and that you will find a job soon. And it is such a blessing to have family to help when you need it!
