Up early with my bride, had our coffee, Donna was off at 05:30AM to the truck company and then the restaurant.
My first chore at 05:30AM was to take the dumper down to the end of our driveway, Thursday is trash day here at the ranch.
It was another cloudy grey day, no rain but just dreary and temps in the 40’s.
Maybe things will be looking better around here.As some of you know My son Andy and his girlfriend Samantha had both been laid off last spring, plus Adam’s Mom was laid off . Andy’s car finally died for good in April, not worth the money to repair it.
Well First Adam’s Mom Shana got called back to work at the GM plant. What a blessing that was. Then Andy and Samantha both found work this Fall and are slowly trying to make it back to even keel, Andy has had his race car (Camaro) for sale since spring and now it just sold. He has made up what he owed in late Child Support, and paid his bill’s and now is going to by a used pickup truck. I am really proud of him as he paid his Mom what he borrowed, and still will be able to get this truck.
I know he is feeling better about himself being able to see above water for the first time in a couple years.And doing it on his own through his hard work and side jobs cutting grass.
I pray now that things will keep going this way as this is what I always told my sons, If you work for what you want in this country eventually you will have it. We all give Thanks for these small gains this year, a little here, a little there.
Sure Donna & I have put off our dream for another winter, but maybe ,who knows we may be next and be able to get a little ahead too.
Thanks also to all our fellow bloggers who we can draw support from when things don’t go our way, like the trailer mishap. We know you will be waiting for our dream to come true. And rooting us on.
Everyone have a great week, and be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
