Between A Rock And A Hard Place.

I'm in a tough spot right now.  My husband (a pilot) lost his job a year ago, and now we are scraping to get by. Currently he's employed at a call center and I'm babysitting from home. We got married and had children at a young age and I never finished school.  I find myself trying to think of ways to bring in more money but I'm at a loss. I really feel stuck.  My children are young, and just starting school.  How do I work my way around this place I am in?  How do I do what is best for my family?  How do I keep hope and happiness in our home if I can barely scrape enough up for myself?.

We've had a bit of interest by a few employers as far as flying is concerned, but nothing has worked out.  I feel like we are just waiting--- waiting---waiting.  I cry and I pray that things will get better, but in some ways-- things are getting worse. My husband is constantly depressed and one of my children is suffering from nightmares and is always upset.  I want to help them, I want to help myself.  How do I do that?!  How do I have the faith that everything is going to work out?  How do I find my little piece of hope when things that I have hope for don't work out?  How did we get to this place?

Organize, and do not jumble all the problems together. The profession that your husband has is fantastic, but need to search the country. Loving a place does not pay the bills so consister a major move to where he goes. Yea, he may have to leave before you and the kids, but that is only temperary.
