As much as we try to plan our lives it’s true that there will always be curve balls.
Events that put us in situations that we’ve never dreamed of.
Sometimes these happenings can be great gifts and learning experiences, but they can also be big burdens.
Yet those burdens are challenges we that we must face and overcome.
Wingston Churchill once said, “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
Meg and Joe built a beautiful tiny house for themselves and have been so happy because of it.
Since then they’ve created more free time along with plenty of discretionary income, both of which are amazing gifts.
They were saving so much, in fact, that they decided to cut their health insurance. What happens next was completely unexpected.
Well, on August 21st, 2012 Joe suffered a stroke at an early age. And if the health challenges weren’t enough, it’s now a financial challenge as well.
But thanks to their low cost, mortgage-free lifestyle it’s going to be a challenge that they can not only face but quickly overcome.
“It’s a very tough road for him, a lot of work, but I know he’ll make it through and he is so thankful to be alive. He misses his house so much as he’s been in the hospital since the 21st. I thought you’d like to know and maybe it could be a subject on your site for people considering living in a tiny house and how even when the worst of the worst happens to you, owning a small affordable space can be an absolute lifesaver.” – Meg
Today I just wanted to send some community love over to Meg and Joe. They are constantly inspiring us here in the comments by living what we all dream of and sharing it with all of us.
Please join me in wishing Joe a quick and successful recovery in the comments below. Thanks!
