I don’t know what is going on lately, but it has been one thing after another…
The past few months events:
Learned that our 15 yr old son has a drug and alcohol problem, is stealing, lying, failing and skipping classes…
Our 86 yr old uncle’s dementia is increasing
Our dryer breaks down.
Uncle gets sick and lands in ICU
Uncle needs surgery.
We need a new septic system.
Water pressure is decreasing.
Dishes in dishwasher aren’t washing right.
Uncle get surgery and ends up on life-support.
Need to repair truck to clean out uncle’s house.
Need a crew familiar with hoarding and several thousand$ to clean his house.
Water tank floods downstairs - needs replacement.
Dishwasher can’t be installed for 2 weeks.
Homeless person I helped is hitting on my husband and knows where I live.
Get alarm system installed to keep drug-dealers and users out, and son in.
Need to drop every conceivable “perk” in normal life in order to even begin to address the debt problem we had BEFORE all of these events took place.
Cannot afford one cent of any of the above…
I’m just thankful we are alive, safe, healthy and together. And I’m not sure how much longer even that will last considering the dangers our family is already face with.
Please pray for our safety - particularly our young children who have exposure to things they should not have exposure to, and for our older children to care enough about themselves and their family - especially young siblings - to make better choices, and that the new strangers that have been introduced into our lives will keep their distance and not harm any of us any longer.
And God’s mercy be upon us!
In Christian Love,
~Donna and family
