In 2008 we had a major job loss, a move because of it and a real hit to our savings. We've both taken huge pay cuts and have worked harder than ever to make it. We also had to deal with a multitude of complications with my mom's cancer including having the breast cancer move to the brain, emergency surgery from a ruptured ulcer when she almost died, and a broken hip.
After 7 months trying to make it in this economy, the Beachys have yet another job loss on our hands.
We just can't catch a break!
We didn't think living here in paradise would be so difficult, but our first year has been just that. Moving forward, our path is in God's hands. We will work and fight harder to make life here better and pray harder for the health of my mom. I know 2009 will be tough.
At least sunset at the beach is still free.
