something to think about

If you have a bunch of money come in, and then you have a bunch of extra bills, are you mad at the bills for coming in and squashing your windfall? Or are you glad you had the money when the extra bills came in? Two ways to look at it I guess, and it will make you think ...
I believe that the money came in because it was needed, and had the bills not also been coming, then maybe the money wouldnt have either, even though neither the bills or the money have anything to do with each other. Life just works that way. Without chaos, you cannot have stillness, and vice versa. Without Night there is no Day.
When my daughter was about three years old she told me that having bills is good because it means you have money, and its true-- ever bill a homeless person for something?

Brian that is kind of how I am approaching it, just being grateful -- but on the other hand I see the whole "Damn Me why cant I ever get a break way of looking at it as well.."

i picked up a part time job, just in time to finally replace the hot water heater that doesn't work, thus giving me cold showers every day. i'll make just enough to cover the cost.
