        Hey gang,

        This year year has been the year from hell for me. My father passed away at the end of February, that same day a friend of mine who lives 3 hours away, her husband passed away from a heart attack.  2 weeks later I wreck my car. Few weeks after that I have to pay the IRS more money then some people make in a year because we made to much money last year. At the end of June, a good friend of mine gets killed in a car accident. Her husband is left raising their 2 children, ages 7 months and 4 alone. In August I find out I have to have a new well drilled because my old well caved in. Cost almost 12 grand. Then I find out my baby has boobs! Last week, my godmother (also my aunt) had a heart attack and her kidneys failed. She is now on dialysis 3 times a week. She looks so frail. Today I find out a freind I made on another forum, a good friend that I had made on there, her husband passed away. When she called me and told me my heart broke for her. I am still crying.

        I really wonder what Gods plan is for me, because to be honest, I am just about at my breaking point. I am not sure how much more bad news I can take. It really make me wonder what God is planning for me, because for the life of me I can't figure it out.

        Did you ever wonder about stuff like this?

        dear LHOFSDAL,
        I thought my year had gone bad, my heart breaks for you and your circle of friends and family. I wont get all preachy, because I am sure you have heard it all this year. The only thing I will say is that , when everything around you is falling apart, step back , look around, maybe you are the glue that is holding things together for others. I believe we dont even realize how much strength we get from each other on a day to day basis. and remember sometimes it is good to go into the ds and scream or turn on the show locator for a good happy cry. You and your loveones will be in my thoughts and prayers.
        REMEMBER- That which does not kill us - makes us stronger!
        and to answer your ? (lol) try not to wonder about stuff it will drive you crazy.
        sincerely,  imakin1

          It sounds like a hell of a year LH.  I hope it gets better for you.  imakin1 is right about "what doesn't kill us makes us stronger".

          I have to tell you this - in 1992 our Queen Elizabeth expressed her sorrow of her year that she described as "annus horribilus" - latin for a horrible year.  Her year saw the break up of two family marriages, one divorce and the fire at Windsor Castle.

          Lori -  this is your annus horribilis.  Hopefully next year will be your annus mirabilis - a year of wonders.  I hope no further horrible things happen to you, your family, your friends, your home.....

          Wow...that is a lot of pain in one year.  I would be curious.....do you feel God is causing all this horrible stuff to happen, or are you simply wondering "what next?"

          I believe that God does not make bad things happen, it is evil, but He does allow good things to happen because of the Bad! For everthing bad that happens in our life something Good will come, we have to keep faith and know that God will be there for us, we may not see it right away but it will happen if we believe. I am sure we all have a story to tell about the bad things in our life but they always seem to trun sooner or later. Keep the faith and things will turn for you. Tuff times never last, tuff people do!!! I will keep you in my prayers,

          Hi LH,

          Sorry to hear about a string of bad luck. I think the most painful thing to endure is the death of a loved one. Money can be recouped and we recover. But we can't replace those we lost.

          Soon a new year will begin and i hope it brings you much happiness.

          oops i didn't answer your question........

          I think we all wonder LH. I don't think we can blame God for it. Sometimes things just happen and it makes us stronger and wiser in the end. I think it teaches us compassion because we have been through it.

          You will be a shoulder to lean on and be instrumental in giving those strength who need it. I might seem right now a hard lesson. But every cloud has a silver lining. In the end it makes a good heart and you will carry on.

          Hi gang,

          Thanks for the replies. I know money can be recovered, it just makes me mad because all this happens AFTER I retired. So we don't have the second income. We can afford to pay all this, but we do have to pay penalties on the money we take out of our investments. It just pisses me off and adds to all othe other stuff, I guess.

          Yes, Doc, I am wondering what is next. It just doesn't seem to stop. I think the hardest part for me is that when things got rough my father was always there. His way of making things "disappear" for a few minutes was to take me to Friendly's for a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup sundae. He would always tell me, don't let the sundae to my butt, because I would be upset over everything else and then have to worry about my fat butt.

          I was told by my hubby, that I am stronger than Mt. Rushmore, because if most people went through all this in a short period of time, they would be in straight jackets, doped up at the local psych ward looking out the window. But I get up every day and make sure that everyone is taken of, and put a smile on his face when I running around looking for my keys screaming I am going to make our daughter late for school if I don't find my keys. Then I realize they are in my pocket. (Can't tell ya how many times that has happened).

          I can only hope that the next year and the rest if this year is better. Because when I said I am at my breaking point, I am really not kidding.

          Thanks again for all the replies, I love you guys!
