Good day and I Love YOU!

I am asking for help from my community. I need assistance making ends meet, right now. I grateFULLY receive whatever you can give. 

I have been in personal business since 2004. Not too long ago, I created a very successful business with my former husband. I was awarded things and monies for this business. I have not received what I was awarded and I have been unable to rebuild. In the past three years, I have attempted to retrieve what I have been awarded. Each time I have filed, I have been taken to court for custody of one of my children, while trying to retrieve what I have been awarded by the court. It has cost me and my family almost $80,000.00. My ex husband continues to travel, even after repeatedly filing for custody, and gives me less than 48 hours notice that he will be gone for weeks to months at a time. For the last three and a half years, I have been solely responsible for all of my son's health care expenses, which I pay out of pocket as he has not had health insurance.  I have supplemented my income over the last year and a half by driving for Uber Eats and working for Instacart. I am not a college graduate and as I have been in personal business since 2004, I have no real "job skills", on paper, or online resume, as it goes nowadays. 

During our marriage, we repaired his credit, not mine. I do not have a single credit card. I have not been eligible for any government assistance nor healthcare as the amount of money I was supposed to receive is documented and has prohibited me from receiving assistance (even though I was not receiving those monies). I do not, nor have I, receive any assistance, currently.

During this time, I have continued to care for my child and home, coach and mentor others, coach my son's soccer team, coach his football team, serve as his boy scout den leader, volunteer in school, and serve in my community in a variety of capacities.  I have not only remained sober, I have improved the quality of my health and happiness. Yes, during the most stressful time of my life, I have found out how to still LIVE, regardless of what's going on around me. I think this is one of the reasons that not too many people know how rough it's been. I have BEcome so good at taking care of my family and mySelf, that I am the most grateful to share that I have not even had so much as a cold since 2014. My son, who is always with me, had no idea I was in court proceedings for almost three years!  Can you imagine a single mom, in custody court for almost 3 years, and nobody knows? I had decided that we were going to CONTINUE TO LIVE, during this ordeal. I did not want to BE consumed by all of this.  And THAT'S what I wanna share with you all!  I now KNOW how to REMAIN OK during life's most testing moments! I know how to stay HEALTHY, connected, and a part of my community!  But, I cannot write, share, nor do too much else, if I do not have fundamental stability!

Today, I need some help getting on my feet. I do not have the money to cover my basic expenses, right now. I also want to BE able to share how you too, can LIVE through anything. I have been writing a book for a minute now. I am so eager to give to you all. I am asking for you to help me and invest in me.

I grateFULLy receive any that you can give. Furthermore, I promise to MANIFEST any and all of your donations, 10 fold! Y'all know I will!

I LOVE YOU

I LOVE YOU

I LOVE YOU
