Hi, its been awhile,  I came on to say don't ever lose hope.   We don't know whats around the corner.  For those of you that beleive in God and awsome power and love for us, God came through I went from having nothing and almost losing hope but I never gave up on God. Out of the blue someone I knew a long time ago was online, and I knew her mom from 30 years ago.  Her mom had fallen, and needed some care at nite and on weekends. Nothing hard because I'm limited in what I can do very limited.    It has truly been a miracle she is paying 15 dollars and hour, I'm on the way to getting my teeth implants, well not literally yet.  I have almost a quarter of what I need and I did that in a month a little than a month.

So hang in there, keep thanking  God no matter what if your a believer if  not.  You do whays works for you and I will continue    to   pray everyone gets a miracle.

Make it a great day.

Just wishing every one a Happy New Years Eve and New Year. Be safe and make mental decisions on how you want 2009 to go for you. If you set goals, follow through on them until they are accomplished. I have two major goals for 2009. The first one is to continue to hang in the Respiratory Therapy program at school and stay focused while doing so. The second goal is to get a car. I really don't like the idea of making a New Year's resolution because it has never worked for me, but when I put things down on paper and plan behind it as goals to be met, it works out for the best. Once again, every one have a safe and happy holiday

Best Wishes,

Mz.Momma

He is a very smart child with a broad range of interest and I just want to make his dreams a reality. thank you for reading and have a blessed day.

Gooday Gawada,

I want to remind you that the world is getting better and better.

There is help, it is available, and its easy to find, we just need to say what we need.

People everywhere i realizing how simple it is to use the law of attraction, and that is causing a shift in how each of us relates.

You are blessed now, and will continue to as long as you aware of that.

I agree with your approach to a simpler financial structure, feeling like you got keep with the jones or the rent to own ads is not going to make your financial picture sound. 

It is clear we must be grateful for each other, realize the blessings in being alive, and stop filling every corner with stuff that only lasts a portion of our lives, but is using up our usefull time and energy as well.

Be well gawada, and may the shift of consciousness bring more blessings to you.

Dearest Angela25-

 Hold your head up mama!

You are doing the best, and I want to acknowledge that and remind you that you have two lovely blessings watching and learning from you.  May that give you comfort.

I know the reality of single parenting, working means quality time away from family, someone else raising our children, and managing the bills, the groceries, gifts, medical, dental, and all that comes with a family, it certainly is not reasonable to manage on one income.

I believe there is help out there, and really it depends on where you are in this world, for there are grants out there, there are gifting communities out there, and there are government agencies out there that can help.

Every issue you mentioned, heaped together, seems like a mountain.  You can get atop of that and see the view!  Take it down rock by rock, issue by issue.

Go to your local churches, state offices, and social services offices, let them know you are facing hard times.   When your rent is due, and you see that you are unable to pay it all, let your landlord know, maybe you can find someone to match what you can pay.  If it becomes several months behind, you may find an eviction notice, and even then don't worry, DSHS and others are quick to help a family facing eviction.   With your no insurance ticket, let the courts know you cannot afford the full amount because you are single mom employed full time, they will make a payment option for you, and may reduce your bill.  You say you have a carnote, does that mean you signed your title to some lending company?   I hope you do not choose this as a way to receive money.  Lending groups, such as Payday Loans, are scamming people who are in desperate needs, and it should be outlawed.  Try to avoid these places like the plague.

For schooling, there are alot of options out there, your first move should be to go to FAFSA website and begin filling out your financial aid.  Visit the school you are interested in, make an appointment with a counselor, ask about scholarships.

You could work part time and go to school part time, it would mean even slimmer flow, but it is possible to find ways to work with that.  Maybe you might consider what i did, instead of trying to maintain a dwelling for myself and 3 kids, i found a larger house with roomates.  I am glad i did, because rent is cheaper, utilites are shared, and now i am not the only adult with children.  I actually have someone to talk to at home.

Getting pro-active will keep you inspired, build your confidence, create bridges to community, and let people know how they can help you. 

Best wishes to you in every endeavor,

Sheglideby

Don.t give up your dream. If there is a local university that you can attend.  Start there!  No wait a second. Start at your local dept of humas services and see if you qualify for title 20 grant funds for day care.  It would help defray the costs of childcasre. Also you may want to apply for gov't. assistant housing  programs which are federal and in every state. This will alieveate your stress on rent each month and you do not have to be homeless or disabled to get access. Also there are comprehensive employment/education packages for every hospital.There is a nursing shortage in all states and all over the world. If you want to start in a direction, head to all of the hospitals in your area and the nursing homes and talk with the heads of dept./not their human resource person.  You must let them know your goals and don't dwell on the maybe barriers. You must sell yourself and they will feel your passion and  direct you into the best program/internship so you can achieve your goals of degree and livilhood to support your girls, And since you are on this networkm use all this grant info., but don't pay for anysthing up front. go to libary and they also have free specialits that can help you access the application process on and off line. Nurses and doctors are in high demand so your timing is great!

Hi Trish7,

I understand how it can feel overwhelming to see the posts of all of us in need, and I realize that the only way to overcome my hurdles is to readjust my thinking, because the consciousness we embrace is our reality.

I would like to introduce to you Esther Hicks and Abraham, they have a message that could change your life, or at least they way you see life, which could bring about the change we all desire.

Please view this from youtube: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=1482472814BF2AEB

I would love to hear your comments on this, may this open a whole world of possiblities.

I am looking to turn around my situation, and the way to get my children homeschooled, and pay the bills, and so I am looking to be a stay at home mom and work from home, I think it is possible, and i will find every avenue to this vision to become a reality.

Anything is possible.   What do you want to realize?

 

Peace be with you and your family,

Sheglidesby
