Quiet Moment

My life thus far is always somehow facing a challenge. My Uncle is trying my patience, I am already under tremendous stress which I have learned to control up until he arrived. I am being very patient with him. He is 77 going on 18. I now have a third child. He is only with me temporally until I receive his Medicare card and then he will be place in a nursing home near us. He has no family, he was married to my mom's sister who died one and half years ago and I have been making sure he's okay every since she died. To them I was there only child. My Uncle is in a wheel chair and he takes 11 pills a day. Ten years ago he had a stroke which left him paralyzed on his left side. When he gets out his chair he needs his walker. He still moves around slowly and sits in front of the computer all day and surfs the web. I should have him in a nursing home by next week hopefully. Mean while, my kids birthdays are coming, my husband has no money for phones to call us and I don't have enough money to buy or give for anyone. I am always running short with every pay check. I did sign up with eBay. I sold a few items and I will stay positive and sell more. I don't know what God has in store for me but I will stay strong and keep praying for strength.

Welcome Back

I haven't written because I have an extra person in my house, my Uncle who is in his late seventies is staying with me until he clears the waiting list at a nearby nursing home. I have been very busy taking care of him and the kids. It's only been a little while but we are managing. I saw my husband last month. He is well and misses us so very much. He will be home soon and that will give me something else to write about. We are planning a big party for his homecoming. CC

Hopeful News

I spoke with my husband today and he informed me the HR 1032 Bill may have been approved today. The Bill was presented to the House in D.C. the 18th and 19th, which was yesterday and today. I looked at the web site, did not see any updates. I will keep Praying because I believe God answers prayers. I will keep you posted if I should hear anything new. What this means is he can come home as soon as the next two to three weeks. Pray for Me! Thank you. I do need my husband not just for me but for the family. Very exciting. CC

Time for a Visit

In about four weeks, I am going to go and vist my husband. It's been a year since I have seen him. Although we do talk every day I do miss him. I am very excited about my trip. I told the kids I have to go and take care of business and my job requires me to go out town. We will spend our time talking and catching up. I have to find a job for him soon and I know that won't be easy. It will be a challenge like the rest of my life. CC

Can't Hardly Wait!

These last few months have passed so quickly. I keep praying for the love of my life to come home sooner than later. Only three more months to go and counting. Of course when he gets out he will have a record and we will have to face jobs turning him down because of his record. I read if you have a record, you should try and work for a smaller company, rather than apply for work with a large corporation. Smaller companies are more caring and they sometimes understand people can make mistakes and want to put their lives back together. We will take it slowly, one day at a time. God keeps blessing us and I am not worried. No stress, No fear. CC

Wife of a Felon (Part 15)

I sold my 1999 Porsch for $25,000. I nearly cried when I gave it up. That car was my pride and joy. My husband gave it to me for my Birthday and I did not want to part with it. So I told myself, it's only a car and I will get another one, maybe newer. So I let go of the thought of keeping it. That was one year ago and I still miss my car. The money went fast, I had to pay so many bills, car payments, rent for the house we were currently in, mortgage on the other house that was vacant on the east coast, bills, bills, and more bills. By March of last year I knew I had to move. So I began packing up the house, started looking for movers and transport the truck. I decided to drive my SUV. I told the kids we have to move for a while and we will be back maybe in a year. Of course my son was not happy but he said okay mom, lets move. CC

The Bill, Still No Word...

Waiting for the goverment to pass a bill has become a very long process. It has been almost two years and it may never pass, which I completely understand. I have learned to be patient throughout this process. My husband means the world to me and I forgive him for what he has done. I believe he was mislead and you can't always trust everyone. You must learn to think and make judgments/decisions yourself. He will be home this summer and it will be a new beginning. CC
