please say a quick prayer for our family.
our business (http://www.blessedmama.com) is at a stand-still. i can’t tell you the last time we’ve had an order, and it was ONE order. we are working on changing and updating right now but until those changes are made, we probably won’t see any new customers, and we will probably miss Mother’s Day customers (which should be a big boom for us).
i have been living with the fact that my business just might not be good enough, or maybe it’s not going to be blessed by God, for whatever reason. my husband works two jobs, so this was just going to help take some of the weight off his burdened shoulders. i plan to keep it open, just in case something happens to change, but i’m no longer optimistic like i once was.
today i checked the bank online, and we are overdrawn for the first time in months (we have been borrowing from my mother, and my husband has put his foot down saying we will not borrow any more). i am so upset because it is MY fault. i didn’t check before i paid an online bill. it was one that SHOULD NOT be late and my husband made it very clear it was the top priority. but i still shouldn’t pay with money i don’t have!
please pray for us. money has never flowed over here and we are just really really struggling.
i know that it is our fault because of lack of planning, lack of wisdom in purchases and just overall bad judgement in handling our finances. honestly, without frivolous spending, we are BARELY making enough money to squeak by with all our payments!
you’d think that by now i’d learn.
thankfully my mom is going to help us out once again but i don’t know when we will be able to pay her back and that makes me feel so horrible. 🙁
thanks for your time, thanks for your friendship, and thanks for your prayers. i appreciate it more than i can express.
