New Attitude

I've come to realize that I've been looking at my life all wrong!

I got the courts decision in about the reduction in Child Support that my ex asked for. While they didn't give him the full $700, they DID give him $400. Thats a HUGE chunk out of my monthly budget. But I will survive with Gods help! I realized last night that I need to look at my life in a different light. Yes, I'm losing $400/month on an already tight budget but God will help us through. We are in the worst recession in the past 30 years and both my husband and I have good jobs and are earning a decent living. God has blessed us with 4 beautiful, intelligent, HEALTHY children whom we love with all our heart. I have some of the best family and friends a woman can ask for. I am truly blessed more than money can buy. If my ex husband thought it was in his children's best interest to lie on the stand and tell the judge that the reason he agreed to pay for 100% of medical expenses had nothing to do with the fact that he owed me $24,000 in alimony than apparently he needs the money more than I do (even though he is making over $102K/year!). God knows his needs as well as mine. I find it hard to believe he will not reward me for being honest and taking the "high road". Reward me not necessarily with money, but with things money can't buy. I am truly blessed in life. THATS how I have to view this new challenge. Others have it far worse than we do. And even IF we have to sell our house, its only a "thing". We will survive because we have love, each other, but most important...we have GOD! Thank you, Lord!!
