If you wake up one day and find you have been dealt a bad hand, how do recover and reclaim your life? Especially when you are over 50 in age! Live in country. No one will give me a job. Just lost both our cars to malfunctions and only 1000 in income from a disable spouse. I pray. I believe in God. I write of His praise. So where do I find my bootstraps to pull myself up?

Thank you so much SidKemp! I try to live my life righteously, but someitmes I feel like karma is knocking on my door when I don't deserve it. But this is what life gives us and sometime I simply need a swift kick!
Karma - hmm, try this medicine. What happens to us says nothing about who we are. What we do with the hand we're dealt - that says everything!
Thank you Maddot. You are so right about getting so caught up that you can not see what is right in front of you.
I think this is a great answer, Lisa :)!
These are great suggestions, whonunuwho! I really needed this because I have been feeling so depressed all day due to my money situation!
Thanks for your suggestion. We live barest minimal now! What is the real kicker is that no one will hire a 52 year old woman when they have scores of younger people to choose from. I love my country living, but never thought a job would be....
Thanks for the encouraging words. I believe the best way to pull myself up by bootstraps is to have fellow hubbers give me good sound advice. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
I fell you Kathy! For the last year, I have been visiting food banks. I am grateful they exist! Churches have helped this way too! Most days, I handle my situation well, but some mornings, I wake up and I feel like crap! But there is hope!
I feel very depressed when I first wake up of the morning, knowing what all I'm going through. It's then that I pray to God for blessing me with another beautiful day of life and read my bible.
I may consider visiting a food bank, myself.
Kathy the things that you do are the best way to get your mind off of your problems, but we do need to stayed focused on the situation. Maybe look into an Online business? Went it comes down you have ,you to take care of. Much love, and good luck.
I am keeping the faith!
