...................Words and thoughts that are mine

We had a great weekend out at Shippensburg University. Josh wrestled in the Western Regional MAWA Tournament, a qualifier for the Eastern Nationals. The top 4 get to go from each Regional , and Josh finished 2nd. Losing a heartbreaker in the finals. I am so glad that for a few hours we could forget about how much stress we are under. Jobless since October , it is wearing us down. We try and keep our heads up, but daily it gets a little harder. Today the Unemployment benefits run out and if Congress does not extend them this week, we may not have any benefits coming in. I start school on May 3, and hopefully can find work in June as soon as I complete my course. I hope this all works out and the extension comes thru. It is hard to think that we could be months away from being homeless, and losing a great deal that we have worked for. I try not to cry, I always try and smile around Josh and I don't want him to feel the stress. I don't know anyone personally that is the same boat , but I know there are many out there. I really hope we can all come thru this, but I know some of us won't. All I do know is I will do everything I can to make sure Josh is ok. He is the best , he is my world. I love him so very very much. I want to see his dreams and hopes come true.
