charliesmum: (Dr Horrible commentary by predudices)
So today at work I was talking to someone in the 'cube' near me. She's fairly new, just started with the HR group. She's in her early thirties, married, with a 2 year old child. She mentioned that paychecks where scheduled to hit on Christmas day, and was wondering if it would go in the day before or the day after. I said something along the lines of how I keep forgetting when paychecks happen. She said something like 'I wish I could do that.'

It was then I realised, once again how very lucky I am right now. Ten years ago I would know when I was getting my paycheck, and hoping I could make it until then. There was a time when money kept me up at night, cause friction in my life and my marriage, and stressed me out beyond belief.

Now I'm married to someone with a good, stable, job. I don't have to worry about when or if the electric bill will be paid. If my car breaks, I can afford to fix it. My paycheck, which isn't much, is there for me to be able to buy presents for family and friends at Christmas. I'm safe, and cared for, and stable.

I don't say this to brag, or anything. Just to say how very grateful I am to be where I am now. To be with a man who loves me, who is there for me, and who makes me feel safe and secure.

My life for so many years was fraught with fear, and uncertainty an unhappiness. I know there is no guarentees, but for now I am safe and happy and very, very grateful for everything I have.
