We have all been through struggles in life whether it's somebody passing, losing your job,family,finances or even yourself but what happens when you reach your breaking point ready to lose hope exhausted from struggle stressed to make ends meet what happens when everything you once had is gone and all you have left is the faith in the Lord that there is a purpose. you will make it through. for my family and I our struggle has given us strength,wisdom and appreciation. It took losing to see the things taken for granted or not necessarily for granted but forgotten. We had lost our home due to our furnace not properly vented and a gas stove leak forcing our home to be commended with no where to go no income only our car we loaded up in search for a blessing sleeping at park and rides parking lots. No sympathy from the landlord. But when it came time to considered suing I remembered when we had signed the lease and he handed the keys over even tho we were unable to cover deposit to me a blessing in disguise we could have blown up any any moment or died silently from carbon monoxide. We had adapted to living out of our car showering at truck stops eating off of our dashboard but unfortunately I was in a n accident totaling our last hope at that point we only had what we could carry. Under the Evans station bridge in disbelief anger asking God why us we have been good to people we have been good to each other, ourselves what did we do to deserve this hardship. Starting to lose sight of self worth i even started to lose my hair from stress wearing the same sythentic wig to the point of just wrapping my head. The way I felt at that time I wouldn't wish on anyone .walking the streets of southwest Denver we happened to run into old friends what were the odds how small could this world be if that wasn't a sign I don't know what I's they took my husband daughter and I into there home giving us a place to lay our heads they had open arms and then the domino effect they were getting evicted all 10 of us 6 being children we're in a bind the kids being sent to stay with distant relatives unwilling to help us adults but also having to much pride to ask or be a burden. We had lost everything now our kids that took a Toll having a emergency housing voucher in hand but no rentals available forced us to find anything accepting vouchers wait lists for housing projects I'm still on a wait least to this day several scams from landlords wanting deposits before signing leases had us fooled luckily for us 4months later a house was for rent and legit the owner a saint in my eyes gave us a roof over our heads kind enough to work with us on a deposit just because we told him he really didn't know how thankful we were for him. But I want to be able to pay it forward for all the people who have gave us hope in times of doubt or helped us just because they are genuine. I am fundraising hope for hardship because Ive learn the values of life I've learned my purpose I just need a financial boost. Anything raised will go to helping our friends who helped us pay for a deposit and helping us pay our landlords deposit also helping get transportation and employment please anything helps whether it's a prayer a referral for work or even any funds you can spare. I have always been to proud to beg but I want to think of this as you never know good people come few and far between maybe someone who isn't struggling actually can help just maybe someone cares .. well I'm going to wrap it up thank you for taking the time..just thank you for taking the time God bless
