I could use some prayer...

My blog is supposed to be my happy place, so I will try to keep this short and sweet. There are three issues that I am struggling with. I have, for the most part, been able to keep my spirits up through all the things of the last year. Two weeks ago we were served with a lawsuit from our lake association. Our house is sorta on a lake - if you consider the swampy part of our backyard the lake. It is a really, really long story and I just don't want to fill my blog with it. The short of it is that we feel that we didn't actually join the association and are not responsible for any fees they are trying to charge us. They say we are not given an option of membership. I met with a very nice lawyer today and he said we may be stuck. I am holding out hope that there is something that can be done. They are asking for $3500 and honestly, that is a whole lot of money for us right now. I could use prayers that this will be resolved. The other thing, is our tenants didn't get approved for their loan. I don't really know all the details, but I really need some prayers that they will do the work to get a loan approval. So many things depend on us selling this house. I am also working on some health issues with Sebastian and potty training. It turns out that it isn't really all about him being stubborn. He may actually have a physical reason for not getting this. I am doing the best I can to figure my little boy out. Tonight I am just tired. When I spoke to the nice lawyer today, he asked me a few questions about things from the last year. I found myself thinking about and talking about some of the things. In my head and some in my words went like this - I got served with a lien last summer. I couldn't pay the lien and two house payments, then my husband broke his collar bone and was off work for a month. The holidays were next. Two days after Christmas, my husband had a job and we had to move in two weeks. We rented our house and moved my whole family including my mom and sister. A week and a half after our move, Savannah crushed her ankle and spent 4 days in the hospital. She comes home with a full leg cast for a month. Meanwhile we are trying to find a home for my mom and sister. We get them a place and have to do a whole move again. Then, my son crashed into a deer going 70 mph and wrecks his car. Next, Savannah has to have another surgery. We have to travel to Florida and then to Virginia. Finally, I am served with a lawsuit. Whew! That is just the last 9 months or so. The lawyer asks me what brought me to South Carolina. I tell him that is a long story. I simply say that I was laid off from my job and felt like I should move to be by my late sister-in-law's kids. When I think of all this, I realize that I probably am entitled to feel down right now. I just don't like feeling down. I feel like there has been a definite plan for our lives. I just am having a hard time having faith at the moment.
