I don't know if I should even respond to this thread… We have lost 3 dogs, my husband has lost 2 jobs, and not to mention all the medical issues that we have had personally over this year. I can with all honesty say that this year has been one of the absolute WORST years I have ever had in my life. Don't even get me started on the global or current news situations… it's unbearable to even turn on the news today. But I would like to add that NO matter what is happening around us, there is ALWAYS good people there. Friends sending out love, neighbors helping out, total strangers trying to help someone in need… angels in disguise!!! It's our job to find the good, and there is always something good to be found in any situation… no matter what it is. If God takes you to it, he will see you thru it!!! I just pray to God that he would show me & my family a little mercy in the next year… I may be battered and bruised up, but I'm NOT broken yet!!!
