Losing Hope

I struggle on day to day basic’s. I don’t even have enough in my pocket to make my next month rent or bills. My husband has been unemployed for a full year now. I was just recently layoff. How much more can I take. I have two children who relied on their parents to support them and give them the basic needs. I have gone to the Department of Human Services for help or some kind of services but still I am not needy enough. I didn’t qualify. Because my unemployment is too much…. I live on a income of 1,298.00. And to make thing more pretty. The crime rate in my neighbor has increased. My car was broken into last night and the stereo was taken. How much more can really be taken from me…the vehicle we use to look for a job now is hazardous, my children are now in danger if in need for transportation. To top is off I only have liability cover due to my financial status…..As I vent and worry I realize I still have my children and family… I will not give up I will keep trying for their sake. I say my faith is too strong to let me down, although I do feel that I am weakening. For the thieves that vandalized my vehicle you are not the only one struggling out there! There is million of family that are going through the same thing you and I are going through... So on your next trip to vandalized a car or homes stop and think how much harm you are really causing.
