Wednesday, June 21st

Candy lost her job and her family is going through a super rough time. Her husband tells her that he’s been picking up some extra shifts at work. Candy found out that he has been stealing from work and the guilt is eating her alive. She realizes that if he wasn’t stealing they wouldn’t have food on the table, clothes on their back or a roof over their heads. Should she confront her husband? Or keep quiet about it?
