A Trying State Of Affairs…(A Moment Of Transparency)

Here I am, looking at 40, and going through a time of trial and change in my life. I was let go from a job I had for more than six years; a job I loved. I have been without medical benefits since May 1st and though I have a new job, my benefits won’t kick in until August 1st. Being without medical worries me because I take 8 pills, an inhaler and a nasal spray everyday.
We are in the midst of car troubles and home improvement projects and the bills keep coming. We can live on what Tomi makes, no problem, but things are definitely more comfortable with two incomes. I have a lot going on right now and it would be so easy to just give up but I believe that there is a blessing on the other side of this time of going through.
There is a song that I sing when I am having a particularly hard day that keeps me going…I feel like going on. I feel like going on. Though trials come, on every hand, I feel like going on. I feel like pressing my way. I feel like pressing my way. Though trials come, from day to day, I feel like pressing my way.
