Update On My Situation

Well I thought I'd update those that are interested of my situation.
When last I left you things were not looking to good. That hasn't changed much. I am still looking for employment when I am able to get online, via the library or at a friends home with her laptop.
If I am not able to find work soon, the following will happen. I will lose my home, car, not to mention my sanity.
It's even harder when you have to go through this alone. I am trying to go through programs to help out with the utility bills etc. Not an easy task. It takes money to do this, meaning the car takes money to get these things done. I don't have cash laying around. I go to the food banks, but they only allow you a weeks worth of food every 3 months, tell me how that makes since to anyone. And you have to show ID's of those living in your home, and my sons at school all day everyday, so I can't show his ID, so the give it for only one individual. Sad state isn't it.
Christmas will not be at my house this season. Nor New Years.
The process of losing ones home of over 10 years isn't a happy one. I wake up each morning thinking it's all a bad dream and I am going on with my day, but then reality sets in and puff it's all gone.
What makes it harder in trying to get a job, is that eventually you can't even pay for your phone. Without that, you have no way getting contacted for an interview. That sucks !
So, I am asking those out their in blog-land to keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Just want thank those that emailed me or left a comment. My access to a computer is extremely limited. A good friend of 30+ years lets me use hers so, I can check in from time to time... 

The employer looking is not getting easier it's getting harder. I've lost my phone service, so anyone I have sent my resume to, has outdated phone numbers, and it's hard to call them from anywhere because I don't have their numbers. Most employers want you to send a resume and not post a phone number on their ads. I am finding it harder and harder to keep my chin up and push on, but I am doing my best. 

My home is now in Foreclosure so, I am having a bit of a nervous breakdown. 

Thank you for all your prayers, I need as much help as possible. I am going through this by myself, so it''s harder.

Glenda, I was glad to see you post but disheartend by how bad things have become for you.

On my screen your post is only showing one or two letters per line so I don't know how many will be able to read it. I worked my way through it but it was difficult.

I know it is frustrating, heartbreaking. Hang on. Keep trying. Do what you have to do. Homes become a part of us, especially for us women who feel defined by how we turn a building into a home. But when it comes right down to it home is where the heart is and as long as you keep trying to move forward something will turn around for you and your son.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi Glenda -
I am so sorry you are having to go thru this. If I had some words of advice I would send them your way, but I don't. I have some family members who are dealing with loss of job situations and things are not good. I will keep you in my prayers.

Oh my sweet Glenda,

I am thinking of you and sending you well wishes and prayers.

Please hang in there. I am sure your rainbow will soon be visible.

Hi Glenda,

I have been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers especially since your last post. I really don't have any words that express what I am feeling for you.
It may sound trite but things will turn around. I'm not saying it is easy by any means but I know the right thing will come along for you at the right time. God bless you and your son.
You are loved my friend.

Oh Glenda! Please send me your address. I thought I had it, but it's not in my book. I am going to send you a "care package" because I care about you and if there is anything I can do to bring some peace to your life right now, I need to do that for you. You have been a wonderful blogfriend to me and I want to send you something. Please email me your address. jlc707@aol.com or Joyce.Cumiskey@hcahealthcare.com

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh Glenda, My heart is breaking for you. I had no idea things were this bad for you.

I don't know what is going on in the world but I know so many people who have lost thier jobs and can't find a new one.

My BIL has not worked for 6 months and there is no jobs out there. At least ones that want to hire someone over 50. It's scary.

I'm here for you if you want/need to talk, you have my number. I can call you back if you like so you don't have to pay for it. In fact, I just looked but can't find where I put your number. Can you email it to me so I can call you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dearest Glenda,

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. We are also going though a terrible financial problems. It's very scary. I was able to land a job at a catalog center that has helped us a lot.

Please please email me and let me know what your addr is! What kind of grocery stores do you have in Calif?? I'd like to help in any way I can. It may be small but every bit counts in these times.

You know you will have my prayers!

Huge hugs, Sherry

Joanne Kennedy said...


I'm posting a prayer request for you. Also, I would like to send you a little something so can you please give me your address too.


P.S. I know it's hard but please hang in there. God will take care of you.

Glenda~I was so sad to hear of your circumstance. I may not comment much, but I've enjoyed your charming blog ever since I started blogging.
I would like to send you a gift card so you can purchase groceries.
I'm familiar with the grocery stores in Southern CA. Do you have a Safeway near by? I will try and contact you through your email.
Would a prepaid cell phone be of any help?

Sweet wishes,

If God leads us to it, He will lead us through it. All things, good and bad happen to us for a reason and God knows the what and whys of the reasons. Know God has you under his wing and those same wings that protect us help us to fly too. What we fight we strengthen and what we resist persists.

Glenda, I'm so sorry to hear about your struggles! I had no idea it was this bad!!! It's so sad that you may lose your home! Please send me your address. Do you have a paypal account? If so, let me know what it is. cindy95131@yahoo.com

Try to not get too down, stay positive! Do you have a friend or neighbor's phone number you could put on your resume?

Did you apply for food stamps and welfare? I had to swallow my pride about 8 years ago when I was unemployed and had to take food stamps! It's so scary when you can't afford food!

I know how scary it is, I was in the same situation 8 years ago. I found the job I have now...just in time!!! I hope the same happens for you!!!
