We are not rich or even well off in life, my hubby and I work hard for everything we have. We have a mortgage and I brought a car for work a year ago.. normal bills etc. But we were 75% through removations, things were looking up. first time since we moved into our home 10 yrs ago we had all new furniture. Then 31st ec last yr my hubby was made redundant. Ok no biggy he will land a job in no time we thought. 5 months and 3 weeks THAT DAY NEVER CAME… watching all our savings vanish, my hubby had a work car and phone so we had to use the redundancy for that. and our bills. I only work part time and I dont earn that much either, as the months ticked on things got soo hard. I tore my knee and needed surgey. to earn money we paid to go private which also lowered the money…Had to go for hardship on our mortage and so many other things. Was hard trying to get through each week… his work was in a massive decline…thousands of ppl going for the same jobs =( we have a daughter with ASD/ADHD so that took money for meds, pead apps you name it. It was scary to think how we would get on. But it strengthend our bond, our love and family. It brought us together. we didnt need to go out and spend money to have fun, it was movie nights and popcorn inside, it was picnics on the grass with the girls.. It made me soo all the materilstic stuff ISNT important! I am not one for that, but I did like making sure my girls had what they wanted. They have also learnt that money is something you have to work and earn. Instead of wanting something they ask what can they do to earn what they want.. they rake up neighbours yards for $1 I couldnt be more proud! its the best thing that has happened to us. He got a job a week ago. so things will get easier money wise and we can get ontop of bills once more. But Ive changed and for the better…its funny what needs to happen for you to see the BIGGER picture.
