It seems to be true that if you think it’s bad now, just wait until later.
This is certainly coming through in my life at the moment.
Yet, I will move forward with a grateful perspective each and every day. It actually did get about as bad as it can get. But thanks to short term housing, I have a chance to gather my life about me and start again. My home was recently burned to the ground. It was a complete and utter loss. All that really matters is the fact that everyone is safe and nobody was hurt or harmed. Still, we are left with just about nothing. Looking for apartments to rent near me did not really go all that well. But, we certainly could not just live in a hotel indefinitely. The company I work for let us use the corporate housing for a week. But we knew that we had to get more settled in order to get on with our lives. I was in need of some affordable housing that I didn’t have to sign a years lease. A good friend found us some great month to month rental near where our old home was. This allowed the kids much easier access to their school. Plus, it was good to be back in a familiar environment. It turned out to be just great. It had bedrooms for the kids as well as my wife and I. Though a bit cramped, it still felt like we had a home if only temporarily. Short term housing allowed us to feel like we were picking up the pieces again.
