All Bets are Off --- Please Pray

You may or may not remember that my husband struggles with alcoholism. It is so hard for a logical, rational thinker like myself to wrap my head around his addiction, but I try.

But he is seeking help --- instead of us having to rely on family intervention --- and is now at a treatment facility. I am proud of him for trying to conquer his demons.

However, that totally throws my budget into upheaval. Thank heavens for insurance --- although our part of treatment costs are not cheap. But I'm having to arrange (and pay) for more childcare, juggle work hours as I try to chauffeur both kids where they need to be, and I have less time to keep up with finances. I hope I can find some time this weekend to clear off my desk and make sure the bills are paid.

If you're so inclined, we welcome your prayers.


  1. Prayers coming your way! I'm sure you'll get all the bill-paying done on time. Good for your husband for seeking treatment. Most of the battle is the will to overcome challenges.

  2. Be strong! Prayers are overflowing. These are the things that lead us to better things. Good luck to your whole family everyone will be touched, just as they were from the alcohol.

  3. Some things you just cannot NOT pay for. Treatment is one of those things. All the best for the future for both of you.
