When it rains, it pours..feeling defeated. Needing some positive thoughts/vibes

SO..we've been behind in bills/rent for the past month. My husband just started a new job and things were looking better. I stay home with our 8 month old and two stepkids (every other week) and just started my own business from home. We share a car and have relied on this vehicel to get him to & from work. On his way to work this morning, the transmission went and he is now in jeopardy of losing his job if he misses 3 days in a row. We don't have the money/credit to get another car. I've posted numerous ads on craigslist&facebook for an afforable car. It was also payday today and we rely on my husbands paycheck to live & he has no way to get it. We are in a tough situation bc we are not from here so have no close friends or family around to help us. My 8 month old is sick, as am I , and now my husband. I am feeling tired, run down, and defeated. I know I am stronger than this but at the moment, I'm not feeling it. I'm having a hard time staying positive and keeping my husband positive. He thinks we will soon lose everything and I'm terrified for our family, esp my baby. Positive comments only please.

     Thank you! I hope so. I keep telling myself that. It's always hard to see when you're in it, I guess. Somehow, someway, things have to work out for us.

    I am sorry. There are no magical words I can say to make things better. Just know I an praying for you.

    With income taxes coming in soon, maybe you can figure something out.

    This too shall pass. I know it's so hard to see that in the moment, but try your best to stay strong, and to not forget that there will come a day when this time is only a memory, and things will be better! Sending lots of positive energy, and good thoughts your way!

     There is a passage in the Bible, (Habakkuk, I believe)--that says when things are at their worst (paraphrasing)--that's when you should sing and praise the loudest.  Call upon God, and He will hear and answer your prayers.  Find comfort and strength in His word.  >>>..praying for you.

    Can he stay closer to work or ride with someone until you get it figured out?

    Apply for cash assistant and fs get government help and see if your neighbor ca take him to work and pay them a little of money. Ask for help do whatever u can as of u r losing everything today. What state do u live in? Ask family to wire u some money ( borrow). Everything will be ok. Cheer up hugs
