When I first moved here, I was just newly married; and a housewife. Who enjoyed taking good care of all of my husbands needs. ( I still do, but Iam no longer a housewife)
After a few years, I seeked employment, thus affording me the opportunity to form friendships. Some of which I thought were meaningful. Some of which have already ended, and some that are questionable.
My husband and I did what we could to make ends me, because the job that I secured was not one that paid a good salary, but it helped to keep the light on, the rent paind, and food on the table. So we made it work.
As long as my friends saw us struggling to make ends meet, they were happy. My huby is in the field of law enforcement, and at some point, we moved from the apratment where we lived and paid so much for rent, to the compund that provided housing for his department. Oh! this was more leveridge for those who thought, we couldn’t handle it, and we were doing BAD.
We were probably doing BAD, by their financial standards, but we were HAPPY, so it never mattered to us. The car we drove, was third hand...LOL, but it got us where we needed to go, even when we rubbed our pennies together to put gas in it. we got around.
Our friends, drove nice/ or new cars, and slowy, everyone, moved on, and into their new homes...Leaving us behind. We knew what we wanted, we had all of our plans. But we were just waiting, and procrastinating, so we were left behind.
We later decided will will try and do this on our own, no mortgage. We tried, we got nowhere fast. two hurricanse destroyed the structure we worked so hard to build...so we put everything on hold. While all of the nae sayers rejoiced, b/c they didnt think we could afford it or finish it anyway.
After giving birth too our son, we went in full gear,and decided that we would go to the bank to secure a mortgage. Something I doubted we could do, but our “FRIENDS“, felt would be impossible b/c of the size of our proposed home.
A true friend encouraged us to go, we went, in 4 days the mortgage was approved, and then, it was time to move in. We did it...but before we did...
Friends called, visited, and called and visited us, where we lived. No problem. But since we moved into our NEW HOME, the one they never thought would finish, NO ONE VISITS, NO ONE CALLS....it’ll be days sometimes before the phone rings.
I am not a show off, I don’t brag about my home either, b/c there are alot of things that I am not happy with with the house....But It’s ours, and I LOVE it, so why not rejoice with us...we did it for you, and are still rejoicing with those that are on stream now.
Maybe I should be HAPPY that you are staying away....or should I.
I LOVE THE GIFT GOD BLESS US WITH....IT‘S NOT JUST A HOUSE (THE PHYSICAL STRUCTURE)...IT‘S A HOME, (THE LOVE AND WARMTH THAT DWELL WITHIN)”
