    Its a hard thing to do, seeing My Love Patsy go though this is killing me. Prayers needed and looking for support I know I have All of You. Great folks Brothers and Sisters here .
    God Bless. I had to sign up for food stamps man it's a tough thing , my pride seems broken, I have bowed down to it . Would love this to all go away. Hate seeming her go through this. Afraid She'll for get me in time .
    I've sold all of my gear, I ask with head down if I could get a Few Prayers. No Christmas here no tree . I hold her and tell her it's ok I'm hear . Bills keep coming and my little bit goes fast, I try to keep my head above water . Any ideas, if any one needs any I could sell or trade please ( head low) ask me .

    May You all Brothers and Sisters and Families have a Merry Christmas . God Bless You All.

    Mike

    You have my prayers and my respect, man. I can't imagine. Humility is a hard virtue to bear and you are stronger than words can say.

    Prayers for you and your loved ones.
    Hold each other in the Lord's Love and let yourself be consumed by it. He won't give you anything you can not handle with Him by your side.

    I was told "God only gives you what you can handle".
    I wish he did not think so much of me. :51:

    Mike, you and your family are in my prayers every day.
    Please concentrate on being with them. The worldly things will somehow take care of themselves.

    Have her keep a written journal every day. It helped with Mom and gave some sense of continuity. You can add to it, and add past memories.
    Prayers for you both. As scared as you are, she is more so.

    This passage has helped me through many a trial in my life. I dearly hope it helps you, too.

    Jeremiah 29:11-13 King James Version (KJV)
    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

    13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

    Sorry to see anyone go through tough times. Prayers sent. :51:

    Sorry for your trials my friend, the two of you are doing for each other all that you are able, for us, all we can do is offer our prayers, our best wishes, and our kind words, you both need to be strong for each other and have faith that better times are coming.
    There's no dishonor in accepting help when it's dearly needed, trust me we've all been there/done that at different times in our lives, accept what is offered with your head held high, and if you are able gift it forward in the future.

    As long as you're looking down at the shoots and not looking up at the roots there's hope, hold each other close and share this holiday season with the joy that you have each other.

    Hang in there Mike.
    In addition to SNAP, I'd check with your local Hannaford. Most of them donate the produce and baked goods that have JUST past the 'sell by' date to local folks who can make use of the food. We made use of this a few years ago and we helped go to the store and collect it all once a week and then helped distribute the food to our group at one of the local churches. We called it the 'Co-op' at the time. It was a good thing to keep the food from being wasted and really helped supplement what groceries we could manage at the time until we got back on our feet.

    Merry Christmas and best wishes for your family.

    I have been through hard times.
    I have eaten at free meals at churches. I have received from the Food Bank, so I do not think it a negative to ask for, or receive, any help.
    Now, I donate to a place here that houses and feeds people. I also donate to a place that helps women in need.
