Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Down In The Dumps

--by jojomcb, posted Nov 15, 2007

Very recently, I have had to move from my home and have been living in a hotel room with my son who is 17, my sister and her two children ages 4 and 8.  

Times have been hard and I have been still going to work and pretending every day that it is no big deal, that we will get through this.  But today I was really down until I logged on to this site .... and read everyone's stories!  It just brightened up my day.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank each and everyone  for their acts of kindness.

Even though times are hard for me right now, I am still going everyday to help my mother who has colon cancer and try to help others with their problems.  Compared to some others, my problems are not so terrible.

Thanks for reminding me.

Have faith and hope and trust in the Lord to see you through this. My prayers are with you all. As my mother used to say " even this shall pass". All is well just keep looking up.

My mom just passed away on 10/23 and I did everything I could to be with her and I was when she passed on. Keep the faith and don't forget to ask God for his strength and guidance, HE is the way. My prayers and thoughts are with you. ~Aurelia

I too had reached rock bottom, but have been able to turn my life around with a positive attitude.

I was in a shelter once years ago because my husband at the time chose not to take care of me and our five children...My children are grown now with babies of their own and I am remarried to the most wonderful man. I look back on those days and I praise God for showing me how He held my hand throughout my life. Believe me, THINGS WILL GET BETTER...Mark my words....Better yet, remember His promises!
