Nice to hear from you! I don't get on here much because I still can't figure it out! :) Hope all is well! I opened an Ebay store and am trying to get on my feet. It is working...slowly but surely! Here is a link if you want to see it!http://stores.ebay.com/fr...
I'll talk to you soon!
First happy birthday to you! I love you so very much and sure do wish we were there. I know you will never see this message but it is in my heart. You are the best mother in the world. I know how badly you wish you could help right now but....we do understand. I know mom, if you had the money, you would help us. It's hard talking to you about this one on one because at times, I feel like a failure. At 47, I should be "grounded." I should be employed, my bills should be paid and it is humiliating for me. Things will get better. I have faith! You are a great mom. You taught us to be kind and considerate, to work hard and to live life. I've never met anyone in my life like you. Always with a smile, always laughing, always loving. It breaks my heart that at 67, you are home alone on your birthday. My gift to you....I am going to start looking for a job in Florida. I want to move us down close to you so we can spend, whatever time left we have, together. Happy Birthday, I love you so much!
I was hesitant when I first found this site to write anything, especially for help. Although many people had negative things to say about me, there were those who had kind words. Not only words, but actions. You know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I don't ask for much, just to be able to care for and feed my family. They deserve it! Never once in my life did I anticipate I would be in such a difficult situation. There are still good people in the world. Although there may be few, the few there are is what makes life worth living. Thanks for helping and I'm no longer afraid to ask for help. If I am judged for it, then so be it. My faimly needs food....that is the truth, we are trying are hardest and have not lost our home yet. But....there is little left after the bills to eat. If anyone can contibute, we would greatly appreciate it. Every little bit helps. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. Nothing will go on frivilous items. My love and appreciation to the two people that have helped us. God bless you! I will give back one day soon! I will!
I recently logged on due to the fact that after 12 years of employment I lost my job. My husband is a hard worker and never misses a day of work. Unfortunately, it's just not enough. I cleared $700 per week and have exhausted my unemployment so now we depend solely on his income. We are used to living decently and understand we had to cut corners but we literally don't have enough left over for food, gas etc. My daughter will be 16 in two weeks. For years we have discussed her sweet 16 party and now, we can't. All she wanted was a $200.00 sleigh bed I found on sale. That's out of the question now and I have not told her. I feel like a failure. I live in a small rural town with very few jobs. I have two college degrees and Speak Spanish fluently. The other problem is that after being laid off, our car was repossesed. No we have one car but it is at a shop needing a radiator core support for the small fee of $300.00. With no car, I can't get a job. I feel helpless and depressed. I received a few comments from others on aid page but they were not nice. They said why do I have an internet if I can't feed my kids. Well, I have to have the internet to look for work. I'm just so sad. I feel useless. Again, I have 2 college degrees and speak two languages. I should not have to go through this. Pray for us. If we could somehow come up with $300.00 to fix my car and some food to feed my kids, I could get back on my feet. I know it. I am a hard, dependable worker. I've only had four jobs my entire life because I put everything I have into them. If you know of anything or anyone that could help us, please let me know. If not, just thank you for listening and not degrading me like the others. God Bless you! Tracy
