Keeping Nena Home
Organized by: Ashley Joyce
Hello friends. My name is is Ashleigh. I live in the great and beautiful state of Tennessee with my husband/ high school sweetheart ;) Randall, and our 3 beautiful children. I work in medical billing, he works in construction. My mother moved to Kentucky from here in TN about 3 years & 4 months ago for what seemed like at the time the most strategic career move. And for the first 2 years, it was everything she wanted plus more! There wasn't a moment in the day that we did not think about her. We missed not being able to see her daily. IT was extremely difficult at first attempting to explain to children the best we could yet somehow we managed. Well needless to say, her business slowing started plummeting. It was unfortunate. She drained her entire savings to keep it running, however it was just not enough. She went from everything to almost nothing. Staying in a weekly motel room, a few mismatched outfits, shoes that weren't even enough to keep her socks from getting wet! It was heartbreaking. On a plus note, we do have her back down here with me and the children are beyond ecstatic to have their Nena home!! She is staying with us and is currently working part time as our sitter to watch the children for a little extra cash while Randall & I work. ((She was forced to leave EVERY PIECE of her belongings clothes, work attire, home furniture, her vehicle etc.)) And I know she is very thankful for this! She tell us everyday. However, we would really like to help her get her own apartment, duplex, mobile, etc. if any of you kind folks would like to donate just a bit to add to ours : rental place, furniture, clothes, etc, We will see to it that as soon as she is back on her feet, we will pay it forward or even pay it. Thank you looking over this and God Bless each & every one!
