Thank you for sharing this.
My husband and I lost everything we had once. I've never shared that here but want to now. We didn't lose it because we were lazy, we lost it all
because we lost IT ALL. We lost a child almost 15 years ago and several months after that my husband started to quit functioning. He lost his will to
do anything and everything as depression was overwhelming him. He lost his job in the process and he couldn't hold himself together long enough to get
one until it was far too late.
We lost our vehicles, we lost our townhouse, we lost everything.
Fortunately we had family that took us in for almost 2 years while we tried to rebuild ourselves and our resources enough to get back out there. If it
had not been for them, we could have EASILY been homeless with our other daughter in tow.
There but for the Grace of God go I is a saying that crosses my mind far more frequently now then it did so many years ago.
We could all wind up this way and those of us who forget it are doing a disservice to ourselves.
Thank you again for sharing this. I hope many more will see it and realize not everyone chooses that lifestyle. There are those that weren't/aren't
fortunate enough to have family to step up when their world has crumbled.
It's the spirit of giving that is the main point because none of us really knows where it goes once it's gone. We can only give in the hope that it
will be used appropriately. I'm glad to see that some have not become so jaded and cynical as others and I'm even more glad that some were taught a
lesson here about how our assumptions can indeed make us asses.
This does my heart heart good and I know that many people give it's just sad that there are so few times we get to witness it's incredible
