What's That Quote? #20 (You're a fighter)

"You're a fighter. Look at everything you've overcome. Don't give up now."
Olivia Benson
(Law and Order:SVU)

Do you ever feel like you're living inside of a boxing ring?
You just keep fighting, waiting for the bell to ring?
To catch your breath, wipe your brow, and get back in there?
Some days, I feel like Rocky Balboa!
Ya know, the whole, "Yo, Adrian!"
Only in my version...It's more like, "Yo, Adrian, Help a girl out here!"
I'm tappin' out! You in? Back-up? May-Day? Anyone?

Okay, maybe I am being a bit dramatic, but you know how those days are...right?
We just keep fighting. We keep pushing through whatever is thrown at us!
We keep "adulting".
Some days we can get by easy peasy. Some days we struggle. Some days we fight tooth and nail to keep our sanity.

I have a crap ton of...stuff going on in my life right now.
I have some super OMG, I am so blessed highs and some UGHH seriously? lows.
I have the most amazing Savoir! Amen! Without Him, there would be no fight left in me!
I am super blessed to have my oh so amazing husband of 21 years(next week).
I have the most awesome 3 daughters I could ever have prayed for.
I have both of my parents and my most awesome mamaw. I have siblings with the biggest hearts of any people I have ever met, and many more family and friends God has blessed me with.
There are so many blessings I am forever grateful for!
I don't want to say...but.

But, that's how it is, life. 
I also have struggles.
We are currently not living in a house of our own. That is a huge struggle/fight for myself. I want my own home. My place, for my husband and our children. I want away from the area we are living. I want a fresh start.
We are also struggling financially.(big surprise, welcome to 2018...right?)
My husband lost his job almost two weeks ago...just as I was finally making about $25 a week with Affiliates and Google.
So, I felt like we were getting knocked down just as I was getting started.
We have one adult daughter who is 20 and trying to find her way as an adult. We need to continue to guide her and be supportive of her choices. Yet, she sees us falling behind. It is hard as a parent. They keep hearing our advise and suggestions but seeing us struggle isn't very reassuring.
We have a daughter who is 15, she just started high school, and her schedule, routine, and school dynamics are changing.
We have a almost 5 year old who thinks the world revolves and Peppa Pig and bologna.
Every day is different. Every day has new blessings and new challenges.
We definitely have came a long way, but our fight isn't over.
