Oh yeah, I had an idea that maybe we all could do for someone, like a neighbor.  Grab a box, Look threw your food cubboards, I dont know many people that dont have a few boxes of macaroni noodles or spagetti, canned veggies, whatever it may be,  put a few things in a box and take it to a neighbor, someone you know who doesnt have much.

I dont have money but I buy with foodstamp what I can to make it and sometimes we run low but I wanna give something so Im making up a box of noodles, spagetti, a couple cans of veggies, a loaf of bread I got from the church, cup o noodles, and a stick of butter. Maybe a few other things. I know of an older lady up the road who doesnt have alot and Im gonna bring this small box of food to her tomorrow morning. I cant do anything else for her but hopefully I can help her to eat a few days.  Im not sure of what her food situation is but Im gonna get this box to her and maybe, just maybe put a smile on her face.

I think if everyone did this there will be a few less hungry people for the next few days!!!!!!!!

Well its something to think about, but  I do know, I will be doing it tomorrow.

Goodnight again :)

Well I had my first trip to physical therapy today and I have to say for the first time in a long time I felt as though I got somewhere.  After a few tests and an exam this is what she told me.  She can probably help me....WOW......its been a long time since I heard that from a doctor.  She discovered that my hip bone on my left side is higher towards my chest than my right, which makes my left leg shorter and my left shoulder higher, it has my whole body out of wack and is causing some of my pain in my back.  She also discovered that my spine isnt straight it is curved like as if I had scolioscis,(spellings wrong im sure), at one time and shouldnt be and also that my spines normal curve towards my stomach is far more curved than it should be. She believes with physical therapy I should improve, I am sooooooo keeping my fingers crossed, saying my prayers and Im gonna do everything she wants me to and hopefully over time maybe these pains will go away or minimize to almost none.  She wants to see me 2-3 times a week.  The therapist office is about 15 miles away which is closer than all the others and Im glad because hopefully I will be able to get to her for every appointment.  Im going to do all I can to make it and if I dont have the money for gas then hopefully the lynx company (state funded) will provide a ride for me.

1 more thing before I go to bed, Someone sent me $100 to my paypal account but didnt send me any message as to whom it was.  If you would rather me not know that is fine, but I do have to write this and tell you thank you very much and let you know I will be paying towards my light bill.  I appreciate everything I have and everything I wake up to and without the help of other right now I would have what I do, lights, phone, land payment, garbage free yard, internet ($5/month for dialup) , running car, gas for my car.  I really thank you all that have helped me and do know that it is so helpful to me and my girls, I dont know what I would do without your help.

I still do need some help with some more bills this month though and if anyone wants to help I dont mind letting you help by paying directly to the company. That way you know for sure that Im not trying to scam anyone and that your money has gone where it is needed badly.

Thanks for reading and Im off to bed, I will be around tomorrow sometime and I will be saying a prayer for all of you and all of the people who need help.

Goodnight everyone, sweet dreams!!

The thing that you have to know about grants and grant programs in general is that you have to be more specific!  You don't say what kind of business you have and you also don't say what you want the grant money for.

If you need grantwriting help then its just the simple case of being able to find a grantwriter that can help you.

 in response to PleaseHelpHaiti...   I would think that it would be easy enough to set up a website or a blog and ask for donations.  You can sign up for a Paypal account to make the donations easier and faster for you to get.

Here is something I found and I wanted to share it with you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, ‘Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.’

The Lord led the holy man to two doors.

He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in.

In the middle of the room was a large round table..

In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew,

which smelled delicious and made the holy man’s mouth water.

The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.

They appeared to be famished.. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful.

But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths..

The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.

The Lord said, ‘You have seen Hell.. They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one.

There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man’s mouth water.

The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump,   laughing and talking.

The holy man said, ‘I don’t understand.

It is simple,’ said the Lord. ‘It requires but one skill.

You see, they have learned to feed each other.

The greedy think only of themselves.’

When Jesus died on the cross, he was thinking of you.

Tired. Had A midterm exam for math today. I hope I did good. Had to spend lots of time studying yesterday. Hopefully this education pays off later on in life. Because we spend so much time and money just to get education and if it doesnt pay off later on, that it will be just a waste of time.

I am sorry for what you are going through and may your ex get what he deserves for making you and the children suffer like that!What about a peace order and banishment.Report him if you haven't done so already.

Dear Lord please protect irishmommy, give her strength and a continued trust. Hold her with your right hand of righteousness. You knew her and loved her at conception and pronnounced her. Lord Jesus, you said come to me all who are burdened, I will carry your weight, here is your daughter, shower her with blessings that flow from the fountain of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus' name Amen.

Am trying to help my family in haiti. Am running out of money to send them, they have no place to stay and barely able to find food. My idea is to help them provide for themselves, but i have no money to help them even to get back on them feet. Does any body have any idea. I wanna help them start a business, by sending them things which they can sell for a profit, but i actually don't know what to do at this point. Am running out of ideas and all my money's gone at this point, now am in a box with no where to go

I just signed on today... this website looks like people are out there caring about other people... Has anyone been given any monetary donations to help them out in times of need and heavy financial stress? I am living each day in such anxiety that there are times I want to just give up. I've asked for help on other sites but only answers I got were all scams, I pray one day someone true and genuine with extra to spare will reach out to help me. Wish I could work, but my spine is permanantly damaged and I am permanantly disabled. Thank you to anyone who reads this and cares.
