“Dear Lord, while ev­ery­one around me is plan­ning their sum­mer va­ca­tions, I’m won­der­ing if I’ll ever have one again. Last year, as oth­ers hopped on planes or drove to the beach, my va­ca­tion fund went to re­plac­ing my car so I could drive to work. This year my work was the prob­lem—I lost my job and took that fi­nan­cial hit, then when I got an­other one, my va­ca­tion time went down to two weeks…which, of course, got eaten up when all my kids got sick this past win­ter! I’m try­ing to look on the bright side and tell my­self things could be worse. I don’t like feel­ing sorry for my­self, but I’m hav­ing trou­ble un­der­stand­ing why my plans keep get­ting foiled. I’m just a hard­work­ing per­son who wants a break like ev­ery­one else. Please tell me how to earn it!”
