My children have a very good and stable home life so be careful telling someone to start at home first when you know nothing about them. There are so many problems with our schools systems today and with how they are managing children and not managing children it is ridiculous.

Good morning to all! I have been sitting here trying to make the weekly lesson plan for

That is such a tough decision. My son had nothing but problems in public schools and I feel the system has done a grave in justice to our children and have failed them greatly. Between teachers in elementary schools and a terrible principle and the no child left behind. My child suffered and it ruined his view of school and he hated it all the way through. It is full of bullies which the schools do nothing about and we had encountered many teachers that were bullies themselves. Me personally until they make the decision to make serious changes, I think the public school systems are a failure for children who are having a difficult time. I stayed on top of the schools and would constantly contact them with issues that they would not do anything about. they were more a source of the problem then the solution.

Good Morning hurting vet,

Always remember to keep your eyes on Jesus and be faithful to him. He knows your heart and your needs, don't be afraid to cry out and call out to him and unload your heart upon him. Have you contacted Goodwill, I know they sometimes have cars, also contact your Church they are amazing at helping out. I would not have made it without my amazing Church, they have the true spirit of Christ within them and were there for me in every way they could be when I needed them.

Wait Missy were you talking about my about me or the poem I had posted. The poem was written by someone else my about me is obviously mine. It's confusing looking at it from my cell because I can't tell which you were speaking of.

I did not write it Missy. I was having a really rough night last night and opened up my Facebook and there it was. It described everything I was feeling, the author is unknown and I wanted to share it with everyone.

I did not write this, I found this and wanted to share;

WE’RE NOT ALONE

If we live long enough
We’ll look back and find
Surely there were times
When life wasn’t kind.

For we can’t escape the challenge
Of adversity
Caught by surprise, without warning
It has found me.

Many times I cried
“This I don’t deserve”.
That’s” just the point, HE says
But my purposes I will serve.

Being left, alone and rejected,
Once sent me reeling
I was numb, non-functional
And without any feeling…

That God could be anywhere
Close enough to touch.
No, I felt nothing
And I didn’t care much….

About living, no,
I wanted to die
All I could do was
Stare into space, and cry.

But when you reach bottom
There’s nowhere to look but up
And gradually, ever slowly
God began to fill my cup…

With a new strength and courage
That regardless, I’d make it
And the feelings of despair,
I began to forsake it.

God had a purpose
In all this for me
He showed me things in my life
I needed to see.

When the unexpected comes
And throws us in pain,
Despair always says…
There is nothing to gain.

“ I will develop in you
What you need to get through
“ I am working in your behalf,
Because I love you”.

And God looks down,
And says, “I’m here”
Whether you don’t see, or feel me,
Whether or not you hear.

So when the trials of life come,
What is He trying to say?
“Put your faith in my hands
And I will lead the way.”

“I will enable you….
To survive….. and grow,
How else will you learn
To let MY strength show?”

“I know it’s not easy”,
With compassion He’ll say
“But lay your pain and hurt
At my feet today.”

I will build a testimony in you
Through your pain,
That says no matter what I endure
I know HE will sustain.

So, “ Come to me
I will give you what you need”
I know, I’ve been there
And He did it for me.

You tell me not to talk to you about God! Well there is only one guarantee in this world and that is no matter how bad things get, God is the only one that can bring you through as long as you believe and have faith and this I know for a fact. I believe the whole reason you even commented on Monas page to me was because you needed some reassurance in God from someone of faith.

Your mother should be ashamed of herself for picking on her grandson. He does not need to be put down. As far as suicide t is not the answer and it never is. We often think we can not take any more, but when you read everyones story on here you see how strong people really are. We are all fighters and taking your life is never the answer, you need to find the fighter within yourself and pick yourself up dust yourself off and turn yourself around. I have fought some nasty depression in my time and you have to fight back.

So tired! I spent the day cleaning the house yesterday, had 2 days without pain and I consider that a blessing and a gift from God. So, I spent the day cleaning my house in a way that I haven't been able to do in a while. Oh, the things we take for granted when we have bones and joints that hurt, that we didn't even realize could hurt. I am so grateful for every good day that I have and I know not to complain. I read all of your stories and what is going on in your lives and wished I was in a position to help in some way, but all I can do is offer a piece of my heart and sincerity in saying I know what you are going through. I have always told myself no matter how bad I think I have it there is always someone else out there that has it worse, but the thing is I don't want any of you to think that your situation is something less important because someone else has it worse, because your situation is very personal and very important and frightening, upsetting and painful to you. I want you all to know that God hears you and I want to remind you that God has a plan and remember to keep your faith, because no matter how bad things get, God will bring us through. God bless each and everyone of you. Even if we may not see things the same way or see eye to eye, it does not make us enemies, it just makes us different and I still wish many of Gods blessing upon you all with much love from my heart.

Hi missypaull I can relate to you in a lot of ways. I unfortunately can not help with a car, but hope I can personally encourage you. We too used to be a two income family and due to illness were forced to become a one income family. I too used to pray that God would take me and put an ends to my misery and long term suffering, but God visited me and reminded me that he is in control and has a greater plan. Often times and more often than not we go through things and we do not understand why, but I can tell you that through the darkness and suffering I was able to discover and see many blessings that I would never have been able to have seen other wise and for that I am very grateful. There is beauty and blessings all around us and sometimes they are so small that we pass them right by, that we don't open our eyes to see them until we are brought back down to the most basic of terms. I was living a to materialistic life at one time to appreciate the most basic blessings and the most beautiful of surroundings. The blessings of life, of waking up each and every day and my feet touching the floor and being able to walk and to take in a breath of fresh air, to see, touch, hug and love my children and to see them grow another day and to share another day of life with them. The basics of having a roof over my head, a meal on the table, clothing on my back, shoes on my feet, a butterfly sitting on a flower, listening to the birds sing in the morning, listening to the crickets and the frogs at night, to sit and appreciate the sound and beauty and power of a storm. These are the things that money can not buy and the love that surrounds you can not be replaced and the hurt and pain it would cause them and it will never go away if you should leave because you hurt yourself will never go away and they will never understand and will forever be asking themselves why and never have an answer. God hears you, God is faithful and he never abandons his children, he never turns his back on us, keep your faith, turn to your Bible and if you need to, stay in constant prayer with him and know that he has a plan and love the beauty that surrounds you, the beauty of life, love and your children, grand children and your husband. God Bless you missypaul.

I can't even Imagine Mona what this must be like for you. When I went through the worst of my cancer I would pray for God to take me. I would lie in bed, barely able to even move out of pure weakness and just being so ill. I know I was knocking on deaths door and I just couldn't understand why God was dragging it out. Why was my family being made to suffer, being forced to be burdened by this for so long and being for to watch their mother and wife suffer for so long? There are so many things we will never have the answers too, but there were many blessings that came from that, that I went through. I discovered so much about myself, about the love my family had for me, about how much we can truly go through and materialistically loose yet how much more we can gain and that matters and is so much more important through it all. God visited me during this time twice the first time he told me he was in control and it wasn't my time and I beat the cancer the first time and I am beating it a second time even though I was told this time it was terminal, I am beating it. No matter what someone tells us and even it they are doctors, God has a greater plan for us and he is in control, So even though I was told there was no cure for this second cancer, God is in control and the cancer is disappearing, why?because God is in control and has a plan and he has a plan for us all, we just need to have faith and believe in him. Once I was well enough to return to work after beating cancer the first time, I did not want to return to my job. It had a nasty work environment. It was very hostile, I was being sexually harassed, verbally abused and understand I am not one to let someone mistreat me I stand up for myself, I fight back. After my cancer and I fought like hell to beat it, I was exhausted, I was weak I was emotionally weak, I was a changed person. I did not want to return to this job. I had a second visit from God and he was telling me not to be afraid, to just follow him, he was guiding me. I returned to work and my first day back was nothing short of hell. I was being yelled at, cussed at, treated like a piece of shit after being on sick leave for nearly 8 months. I broke down and cried the whole day I was there. this went on for a year to a year and half. My health was getting worse and I had found out I was terminal now and I had my final straw. I kept remembering Gods words to me, "Do not be afraid, to just follow him, he was guiding me". I put in my 2 week notice, I quit my job, just like that. I had no idea how we were going to make it. We had already lost our home due to my illness. We ended up moving to a better home a safer home a ranch because since my illness I was constantly falling down the stairs because I had been having dizzy spells from all the illness and meds. I didn't know what we were going to do and how we would manage, but I was going to have faith and trust in God, because of my oncologist I was immediately approved for disability we traded in our 2 very expensive cars for a pick up truck, so we went from 2 vehicles to 1 and cut many other expenses and it all worked out. It has been tight but it has worked. I just had to trust in God and not be afraid. For the past 8 months has been the ultimate test for us, my husbands company has been on lock out so we have been living off of unemployment and my disability, so money has been cut even further. I have been going without vital prescriptions or having to pick and choose which prescriptions I must have and what I have to sacrifice. In doing so means I can't pay some bills which sets us behind making it very difficult to catch up and in not getting some filled means I suffer in great pain a lot but I have to do what I have to do. My husband found a new job, a great new job, praise God and prescription coverage starts next month. Being faithful to God, he has a plan, he doesn't promise us a perfect life, but his love for us is perfect. I believe in the saying give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. During all of this we have had to help a couple of times, but mainly we always figure it out. I always tell myself no matter how bad i think my problems are there is always someone else out there that has it worse and there is, but it doesn't make my problems or your problems and less to you or to me. So we don't need someone being harsh or insensitive to us, we don't need someone being unkind. What people need during times like these is encouragement, human kindness, compassion, understanding for the tough times they are going through, prayers, scripture to lift them up and ideas, for crying out loud it doesn't hurt to give people some ideas on how to help themselves out and offer some hope. God Bless you Mona, because God knows you have had more than you need and you could use some sunshine to shine on you and brighten your day and lighten up life and lighten up your path.

I have read your cries and am so sorry for what you are going through. I pray for Bella and that a miracle happens for her and for you. I have nothing that I can give but encouragement and prayers. Have you checked the local churches they usually have food they can provide to you and can keep you fed? Have you checked the local paper for any local work while your daughter is receiving treatment? I will keep you in my prayers Jthrice.

I am so sorry for your loss and all you are going through. I am on disability do to cancer and am alone in many ways because I left my birth family due to abuse. I do have my husband though. I can't imagine my world without him and have often wondered what I would do without him? I am 48 and I have no interest in ever seeking another partner, he is my once in a lifetime love and I would rather be alone if he were taken from me. You are blessed with your mother and sister never forget that, when you have a good family cherish them for they are a gift. I know the loss of your husband was a tragic one both to you and your children, keep the memories alive and cherish them. Though I am on disability I am always thinking of what I can do to help myself and I love to be creative with photography and writing and I have just discovered pallet furniture which is something I am hoping to start building very soon, like in the next couple of weeks. Have you been keeping your mind active and full of thoughts and ideas as to what you can still do to keep yourself busy? Maybe, even to bring out your creative side, it keeps you healthy, happy and even builds income.

I am really concerned with how harsh baddcatt is with some of the members in need. I think if this is a group dedicated to helping people that are struggling and suffering than being mean and harsh with them is the last thing they need. I also am concerned with how he has been handling several conversations with many of the people on her lately and feel they should be reviewed.
