Praise the Lord we made it through November. I am still looking for work and still have a few things on Craigslist. I thought with Christmas coming, maybe people would want to buy some of them as gifts (there are good little girl gifts here) but so far no luck. I am very discouraged lately, and praying for God to show me what the deal is because I sure can't see where this is going. Thank y'all who are keeping us in your prayers, they are very appreciated!
I have still been applying for work, through the schools and craigslist... still no luck. I have been able to sell some stuff on Craigslist the last couple of weeks, and some super generous friends blessed us as well, thank you so much! Please continue to pray for whatever is "supposed to happen" with this situation will just happen already! :/
I did not get the job I had interviewed for. I was desperately upset about it, but I keeping trying to tell myself that it must mean something better will come. One praise I can report (finally ONE piece of good news) is that I finally was able to get through to the thick-headed government SNAP folks and we got foodstamps effective November. THAT is a huge weight off my shoulders.
On the flip-side of that, my car is acting up pretty badly again, and it seems to be another ignition coil - the same thing that I just fixed last month. That's another hundred dollar part. :( I also had a service light come on that means I have to take her to the Dealer and I'm so nervous to even GO there. I can't take anymore problems. Please pray about that for me, that it's just NOTHING, just a light-glitch.
Thank you for all the prayers, I can't even tell you how grateful I am. We are SO eternally thankful for all the support we have gotten, prayer and otherwise. And prasie God at least I can get groceries now!
So far, I haven't been having any luck with sharing this fundraiser. I know it's not a fund to cure cancer or feed third-world children, but we ARE real, live, local, American people who just need help right now.
I have had a job interview, and am waiting to hear back,, hopefully there will be some news by the end of this week. In the meantime, I don't have the money to put gas in my car or buy our next groceries.
Please consider dharing this for me? Thank you so much, anyone who shares.. or just adds us to their prayers. Thank you.
This is very hard for me to do - to ask for help. Especially in a supe public way, but the consensus among my friends is that if you need something you might as well just ask!
I'm a single mom... My four year old son & I moved across four states in May 2012, to start life anew in a little city outside Houston, TX. It's been harder than I thought! I am not working (though I've been looking for over a year), but I am taking online college courses for Medical Transcription, which I eventually hope to be able to do from home. My lil man is in Kindergarten at a local school and is excelling!
I'm a little embarrassed to be putting this out there for people to see/read, I just don't know how else to ask for help. It's very difficult for me to ASK when we need something!
I've been on unemployment since I was laid off in March 2012, just before we moved to Texas. My unemployment ran out in August, AND, due to a technical snafu in CA, my last payment (from Sept 1st) still hasn't arrived. That was a months worth of bills money for us that is indefinitely delayed. I've had a couple interviews for work, but so far ... no good news.
We have been indescribably blessed by our bestest friends, who have taken us into their home, because I could no longer afford rent. It has been a huge blessing, and a wonderful experience! But I still have a car payment, and insurance, bills, food, gas for the car... and as of this week, I am out of money. I don't know how I will even get my next grocery trip. I have petitioned food stamps to increase my $16 a month, so hopefully that will be higher starting in November, but I'm not sure yet.
I've sold nearly everything I have that's worth anything, and I have some more stuff listed, but... the stuff I have isn't (apparently) really anything people want. :( This 'fundraiser' was another way I thought of that could possibly help us.
We pray every night, thanking God for providing for us and asking Him to continue providing the things that we need. I have been doing what I can, it's just not enough. Maybe this is one way, I don't know, but we'll find out!
To anyone who donates, and who HAS donated to help us get through these struggle-y times, THANK YOU so much. Y'all have been angels, and I am more grateful than I can tell ever tell you. I hope I'm able to bless someone, someday, the way we have been blessed.
**Edit 4/11/13: THANK YOU to the folks who've donated! Oh Thank you, more than 'thank you' even conveys! I consider each of these a huge blessing, and am SO grateful! :) :) :) I was encouraged not to just put a "number" in here, but the "real number", of how much I need/can use. So *gulp* I made the change. It's scary to me, but I know that God will provide for us. However He does it is Ok by me, and since He doesn't generally let us know in advance how it's going to play out - I'm just trusting Him with it. Thank you again! :)
**Edit 5/2/13: Again, I want to say thank you SO MUCH to those who have shared our page, and who have donated to this fund. I got rent paid for May,, thank God! Please, please continue to share this for me?!
**Edit 5/16/13: If anyone is still willing to share this, please, Please do. My 'network' of friends and family is really pretty small, so I appreciate ANY extra sharing! Thank you!!!
***Edit 6/14/13: Thank you again for all the support. Though we have been truly blessed so far, I am still very short of my goal. Please consider sharing for me, or helping us out! Thank you!!!
**Update 7/5/13: Please please, don't stop sharing this for me! My son and I have been very blessed by folks who have given to this fund, but our goal is SO far from being met. Please, share this for me again? Thank you so much!!**
