I am new to this group and have already found the women to be pleasant, encouraging, supportive, and good Godly women.
I am 29, I have 4 children 7,5,3,1 and I am 6.5 mths pregnant with my 5th. I work full time and so does my husband but his shift is from 11am-8pm so he's only home to help in the mornings. I'm tired and I don't feel like God cares to much about me right now. I know that is a fairly juvenille statment but I'm having a really hard time with life right now. I feel like a single mom most of the time and I feel alone. My job and my kids consume my life and I don't know how to change that.
My husband was laid off last thanksgiving and even though he's been working for the past two mths, catching up has been hard. I know I'm not he only one struggling and I kind of feel like a baby for whining but I think i've finally hit the bottom. I got pregnant in January, he still wasn't working at that time. We live in a 3 bdrm rent house and have no money. Why would God let this happen? My husband and I are careful, we even have 2 BC babies, so if he's not suppose to give you more than you can handle, WHY? I told my husband last night that since he's never around when I need him why doesn't he just leave, that's not me and I think it's more than hormones.
Please help! Any words of wisdom and prayers wouldbe a great blessing right now. Thank you
