Usually, I would consider myself a decent writer. I don't think I qualify for that today. This is a very difficult thing to write about. For those that don't know, I have been through some really tough times these past two years, both physically and mentally. Enough to make it so unimaginable to see myself the way I was before. I replay stories in my head of how I taught in the past and try to imagine myself doing it today... I don't have the strength right now to do it. Some people say that I can, and maybe someday I will. Just not now. Unlike some people have believed, I am not putting myself down, I am actually strengthening myself by saying I may do it in the future and simply accepting I can't... yet.
My kids really are my true blessings as we get through this. They are learning that life is not based on all the money we have or how large our house is. It is based on our family unit and how we can keep together. They know we are struggling, but hopefully will not have to be told how far we are now. We may have to move again. I have no idea where. They, AGAIN, may have to switch schools. We will figure things out. We always do, with the Lord’s help and guidance.
If you want details about our struggles, just ask me. Not my family. I am only keeping them back to shorten this. I am, though, asking for you to ask your heart whether or not you can give us any amount to help us get through this struggle I never expected to go through. $1, $0.50, $50… anything.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
