When the Economy Tanked

Million Dollars

Article by Wendy McCance

There was once a man and a woman who were in love.  They lived a wonderful life.  They had a big beautiful home, good jobs and an easy lifestyle.  They were happy and content.  they had worked hard and were now enjoying the rewards of their hard work.

There came a time when the world turned upside down.  Along the way, the good jobs were lost.  The man and the woman had no jobs.  The woman said, “we still have our nest egg.”

There came a time when the nest egg was used up and the jobs that were found were very meager.  The man and the woman lost their big beautiful home.  The woman said, “we can still afford a small place to rest our heads at night.”

There came a time when the bills became too much and the utilities were shut off.  The woman said, “we can still light our candle and stay cozy through the night.”

There came a time when the small home was no longer affordable.  The woman said, “we can still stay warm and dry in our comfortable car.”

There came a time when the food ran.  The woman said, “we can still eat, there is a food bank that will take care of us.”

There came a time when the man and the woman looked around at what was left of their life.  The man said, “we still have each other.  I love you and that’s all that matters.”

  1. So true for so many… I pray the economy turns around soon. I “feel” for those who have lost so much. I guess the old saying is true…. “If it doesn’t kill you, it will only make you stronger”… guess that goes for relationships as well. Good story!
