Does that describe where you find yourself or are you struggling? Perhaps you're one of the longtime unemployed searching for a job or you fear losing your home which is underwater. Worse, maybe you live in one of the storm-ravaged areas and have literally lost your home to a fire or flood.
There is, it seems, no shortage of disaster these days. One has only to view the latest news whether on TV, the Internet or in print to be drawn almost to tears by the plight of our fellow man/woman.
At the moment, I am one of the lucky ones. No tree fell on my house during our most recent windstorm; my health is better than most and bankers aren't breathing down my neck. How long will my rosy situation hold up? Who can say? Tomorrow the sky may fall, as that pesky chicken announces in the fairy tale. For now, I take it one day at a time and am grateful for what I have. In the meantime, I'm enjoying an unusually nice summer: my lawn is lush and green as opposed to the usual mid-summer parched-earth appearance.
Yes, indeed, for lucky me it's "summer and the livin' is easy". How are you doing? I would love to hear from you.
