Don't Hold Your Breath

That was some advice I was given today. It is good advice.

The winds of change may be blowing in my favour for the first time in a long time in regards to a situation that has been brewing for about 2 years with the ex husband. It is my hope that he will finally be held accountable to his children and their needs even though they are no longer living at home with me.

I don't expect congratulations or pats on the back for the things I do for my children. It is my privilege and honour to be blessed with the 2 wonderful daughters I have. It has been difficult at times to help them with their needs when money has been tight for me. Cute Boy and I do many things for my children and we do it because I love them (I can't speak for him) and want nothing but the best future for them and doing so when worrying about money is not easy. I created a situation where I had to get a part time job just to make ends meet and I'm okay with that for the most part. I would never list the things I've done for my children, not my story to tell, but theirs. I wouldn't change a thing though if it was that help they needed, then so be it.

Things with my financial situation may be changing. It has been a long and painful haul to get to this point. It may not happen, but I am more hopeful today than I've been in a very long time. I've spent more time on the phone with tracking, discovering, figuring and just plain never giving up on what I believe is right. Now, the person running may have run out of room to run and may very well be forced to be accountable for his responsibilities

Remember - breathe!
