Effects of the Economy

This economy is rough...
And, although I know there are many, many families struggling to keep afloat, this week it gained a face for me.
A fellow single mom, with 4 kiddos from China lost her home on July 1. Next week, she'll be laid off from her job. They have a tent & that's home for now.
Face it...she has a long uphill battle if things don't get even worse from here. I so wish I had a huge bank account to draw from, savings for a rainy day, because my friend is in a hurricane.
Please offer up a prayer of hope for her family & others who are on the brink of disaster.

Kayla update.....She's doing great! She was moved from Shands to an intensove rehab facility in Jacksonville about 2 weeks ago. She is rehabbing her speech & gross motor skills. Yea!!!

Oh Debby! I am so sorry to hear about this family. Is there anything we can do to help? Is it anyone I know?

Yes....Kendalan is my girlie girl. Her big sisters can be WHEN they want to be so she had some "training"!!
