Life Happens

From Sarah Mejia

I am raising money to help support my children and myself. It's been a rough year with my Husband passing away from a motorcycle accident, and then being sexually harassed by my manager at work, who then terminated me.

First, I would like to say to kiss your loved ones every single chance that you get. Don't ever leave without saying goodbye. You hear sad heartbreaking stories all the time and never fathom being the one who actually has to go threw the tragedy and pain. My Husband Anthony was killed this past January in a motorcycle accident. He left behind 2 sons who are such blessings. I couldn't ask for anybody better than them. He also left behind our Beautiful Baby Girl. This tragedy was the hardest thing I have ever had to go threw. Not only did The Love of My Life die but then I had to explain to the little ones that there Dad was gone. When in this situation some might feel like its the end of the world. But that wasn't an option for me because no matter what I had to stay strong for my children. I've been able to continue pushing forward, go to work, take care of my kids, and maintain our household these past months. I was working for a small business and I loved my job. I love all of my customers some have became more like family to me. And I am forever grateful for every single one of them. Unfortunately due to some difficult circumstances I won't be able to continue working with them anymore. My manager who is also the owner of the business has been verbally harassing me and sexually harassing me for the past month. After the first incident he wrongfully terminated me accusing me of stealing (which is not true). This was because I had asked him to please stop. So not only am I now unemployed but I am also in the process of seeking legal actions against him. Apparently the guy has major mental issues. It just really bothers me based on the fact that I have done so much for the business because I genuinely loved it. I really didn't ask for any of this. And I know that this is life and that LIFE HAPPENS everybody goes through trials and tribulations. I always stop to remind myself that things could be worse and there is somebody out there in this world who IS going through worse situations then us. But it still isn't easy to deal with. 2 weeks before being terminated I gave the property manager from my apartment complex our 60 day notice. Therefore, by the end of this month we will be needing to have found a place and be moved out. I know that we will be ok. Because God has always always came through for us. These past 12 months have been a struggle in so many ways. Money has been really tight and now with no income life has been even more stressful. I hate asking for help. I never thought I'd be asking for help like this. As a kid I was taught that there is nothing free in this world. You have to work for everything. And I believe in that 100% but sometimes we as humans need some kind of help. I would just like to be able to breathe again. Regardless I will keep on pushing forward and doing what needs to be done for my children. But if any of you are able to help us out just know that we will always be forever grateful to you. And even if you aren't able to if you could just please say a prayer for My Babies then that would really be just as much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read. May God Bless you all.
