The Story

Jim and I bought this 'last ever' house three years ago and  were so blessed - we still believe that. It was a foreclosure and it was something we could financially afford as we both are retired and on Social Security.

Unfortunately - the last 18 months have been riddled with various health problems causing numerous visits to the doctor - all to no avail and leaving us constantly sick.

Recently, we found out that the problem in the house is due to allergens and mold spores and all the carpeting in the house must be removed and the entire house treated. This has caused major concerns for us as our limited income affords no extra leeway for doing this type of repair. We need to do this as soon as possible and if you can help in anyway, we would be greatly appreciative.

Thank you for considering helping us in this urgent matter. If you would prefer to help but don't want to go thru this, you can either use paypal (as a gift) and the email staley007 at gmail.com or send to 16 Fossil Lane, Elsberry, MO 63343. Again, while we are of the generation that 'doesn't ask for help' ... we find ourselves in a real pickle. May you be 100% blessed back by your help and prayers!

**** Also - please note that if you do donate - there is a 'link' next to your amount where you can CHANGE the suggested donation to 'You Caring' .. you can choose 0$ to be donated to them - which means you are not paying to help us out - it will take that amount out on our end - which we would prefer.**** (Just found that out)

Sitting here in the still of the evening....am just pondering of the love that is out there in the 'family of our God' who have reached out to help us in this overwhelming rehab of our house.  I am simply....astounded...and so humbled by those who have shared what the Father put on their heart to give to us so generously. It has been very humbling. Why you ask? Because we were raised when little boys don't cry and little girls - well, are demure and submissive. However, now that we are on the other side of the 'gate' so to speak .... we realize that little boys DO cry...and little girls...well, they aren't always so submissive. We have gone through hell and back many times through our 47 years of marriage. But I must say......neither one of us would opt for not going thru the valleys and landing on the mountaintops. It is simply life...it's a journey....and I've learned to B R E A T H E. Breathe....

And here we are....in the middle of a fix....and we cried...and we reached out...and you responded. With prayers, and advise and physical help and yes, those greenbacks. Amazing. Simply Yahsome! And it has taught me more than I ever thought possible. It has enlarged my heart ... it has opened my eyes ... and it has renewed my strength. And it has taught me that as my mother has often reminded me.....my Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills...and He will provide!!

So to all of you who have sent up a prayer, lifted a hand, offered some advise or sent in a donation to help ... we are deeply and profoundly grateful - and we pray blessings on each and every one of you!

Just a short update....if you are local and have the time, we will need a bit of help to rip out the rest of the carpeting and basement insulation. Then we will do the treatment ...and as we can, we'll replace the flooring. We are not wanting to put carpeting back in - so we will definitely need help  - we've found flooring for 99cents a square. So if you are able body and willing - let us know if you can help. It will probably be Sunday Feb 26 when we rip out the rest of the carpeting - and it will probably be a few weeks later to get the rest of the flooring. Thanks ahead of time!
