So let me start by saying. My name is Christopher Hopkins I am a God fearing man that born on Christmas day 1977. I have COPD plus a whole slew of other health issues. However, I am so blessed to be alive during these all so trying times. Id be a liar if I said my faith hasn't been tested lately. I'd like to share a few of my most recent Trials & tribulations. The past year has been really hard on us all. But I'm not trying to say that I have had it any harder than the next guy/Gal. I am a self-employed flooring contractor. Im sure that you all know. Nobody wants strangers working inside the safety of there home. To say that 2020 has been the worst year to date financially would be an understatement. But thanks to our generous local and federal  government. I'm entitled to 160.00 per week. Until Dec 26th. I AM VERY GRATEFUL. Under the normal circumstances self employed  workers are not entitled to any of those benefits. It is still hard making ends meet with such a small amount. So if thats not enough My children's school has been emailing daily with information of covid outbreaks in every grade I just received a email no parent  wants to hear.My child had been exposed to a peer that has since tested positive. So me being worried. I make a appointment just to be safe. Then the very next day. Another devastating blow dealt My cars motor blew. While in route to have ny son tested. I had my car towed to shop i trust.Just to find out there is no fixing it.My car will need a entire new engine. Witch will  cost more then the car is worth. Two weeks before Christmas. I have $174.29 to pay utilities.  Not enough btw.  Also give my family a Christmas. Oh also buy a used car.  Also pay property  taxes.Can this year get any better. So I'm asking for those that have enough.Please watch out for those without. I have never asked for help in my life. But there's a time to be proud. There's also a time to be accepting. THANK YOU FOR YPUR TIME.  God bless Stay safe. PREY FOR ALL
