I know longer post personal problems, but I'm posting this . My DS has not received unemployment benefits since June with no extensions to be . When he was receiving his checks he was faithfully giving me $350.00 bi weekly and by the 1st of the month, I was dropping a money order in the rental box . Let me add that they have a gorgeous three bedroom apt with finished off attic . After the $350.00 deducted from his bi weekly check, they only had so much to put on their utilities . With his unemployment checks running out they not only have the landlord threatning with an eviction, but shut off notices on their electric & three in one cable ( phone, cable, internet ) . Thankfully one agency paid their gas bill, but other than that assisstance, they have hit a brick wall with TANF, rent assistance, etc . Everyone is in dire straits with this economy . Needless to say, I've been a mess !!! Not only do I have a gorgeous 11 month old granddaughter , but I have a beautiful pregnant daughter in law that is due anyday . I spoke to Jimminey and told him I was canceling my WDW trip for August/September to pay the rent & electric bill off . He said, Honey, you worked hard on ebay & subbing and made your own money if thats what you want to do, Go For It . Not something I wanted to do, but had too . This is not just about Pat n Kim any longer , but my dear grandchildren .
My colitis has been acting up as I'm so stressed . I loss 5 pounds in two weeks . Last night I got down on my hands and knees with my rosary in hand , I cried out to God, my father, Pat's father , Pats grandmother & grandfather . I prayed as hard as I ever prayed & cried, please look over my son, daughter in law and grandchildren , if there are miracles . Please send one to my children . I woke up with the worse headache this morning . I was sitting on the front porch and the pastor from my church rode by . I looked up and said is this a sign and laughed at myself . Like, Yeah Right !!! Well, not 30 minutes later Pat calls and said MoM , you are not going to believe this , I'm waiting for the worse case scenario as he sounded upset . He went on to say , I'm at the unemployment office , OK ?!?! And I was just told not only am I getting my extention , but they owe me two weeks worth of back checks, that I will receive Thursday . I busted into tears , he's like MoM don't cry this is good news . I was crying tears of joy . I got on my hands and knees and Praised God . There Truly is a Greater Power & Prayers Work & Miracles Happen . I have so many emtions going through me right now . I'm relieved, in shock, happy, crying , you name it , I'm it ! Join Me in being beyond happy .
