One Day
Thursday, July 27, 2006

One day I will wake up and not be assaulted by the realities of my life.
I will roll out of bed happy to go to work and pull on shoes that I bought this month, not three years ago. I will have pants that haven't been held together by mendings and I wont have to worry about stretching the dollars enough for gas till my next payday.

One day I will be able to buy whatever it is my son wants, when he wants and not worry about what bill has to slide in order to make everything work.

One day I will not worry about rent increases, back to school shopping, and daycare. My son's father can protest the amount of child support he doesnt pay all he wants because I. Wont. Need. Him.

One day I'm going to remember what it's like to have a hobby.

One day I will take Kendell to DisneyLand.

One day I will go back to college and not need financial aid or worry about how I will pay for daycare while I go.

One day I will not feel that I am drowning in worries because I make too much to receive help, but not enough to help myself get ahead.

One day I will never have to do a pay day loan again.

One day I will not eat Top Ramon because I have too.

One day I wont need to make a dollar out of fifteen cents.

One day, just not today

At least you know the things that you are lacking and so you can work towards reaching your goals.

Sometimes I sit here and can't figure out what would make me happy.

Yes my dear, one day you will. I've been there, done that, and I know exactly how you feel. It's frightening and stressful.

My dear Kara,
I hope all gets better and you don't feel so "down". I'm sure things will lighten up for such a nice lady like you. *hug*
