Hi In the last year life has taken some ugly turns on me and I am at my last straw to hang onto which is God. So far this year my Mom had a stroke and needs 24 hour care, my well has went out on me so had to get money to fix that so I could live there, while I was living at my Mom's a storm took out my power two different months and my sump pump went out and flooded my basement destroying a lot of my things both times, Another storm took my two 35 foot blue spruce trees and up rooted them and smashed them in my front yard and my 50 foot high one was busted down and thrown all over my back yard. They want a couple thousand dollars [that I do not have] to clean it up. Since it is not being done quickly a I can only get to do it a little a week with a hand saw and hedge trimmers the neighbors are complaining and say they are going to take me to court for an eye soar clause in our neighborhood. Then also while I was staying with my Mom to take care o her another storm blew and my roof leaked and flooded my family room as I was not there to see it, ruining more things and causing my ceiling lamp to fall threw the ceiling and made my ceiling panels fall. I am fixing things as fast as I can but cannot get things done due to time and expenses of it all. Now my Aunt died yesterday which is my mom's only sibling left who she could talk to and now she is worse. I had to retire early to take care of Mom so money is even tighter than it ever was but to pay for care for her was just way to out of my limits to meet. I have three siblings but only one will help a tiny bit but I thank God for him as he makes me feel not totally alone. I have lost energy, and need foot surgery and have a hernia that needs attention but have no time to do them as they take recovery time and I have no one to help with Mom. I am also diabetic now and have high blood pressure problems I am trying to work on. I have lost 25 lbs this year. I am doing my best to trust in God to take care of things ...and still more things just keep happening to me. My husband left my girls and I several years ago and I have just been trusting God to bring him around to work on the marriage but he just does not have anything to do with me. My one daughter has 4 children under years of age and has not time to help as she cannot bring kids here due to mom's nerves and they are little. My other daughter helps me with Medicines and getting things from the store but she is married too and pregnant and sick most days. My Mom has to have medicine that Medicare will not pay for to the tune of $264.00 for 30 pills each month and that is about the car payment. I am losing it! I need some prayer help if you would please remember me when you pray. Thank you so much.
