A helping Hand

Lady Christie started this conversation

Hope, Faith, Inspiration, Courage, Strength

You have to have HOPE to get though your difficult times in life.

FAITH To believe you will make it


You need COURAGE to deal with what life is throwing at you.

STRENGTH will get you through another day.

We all have these things in ourselves, we just need to find it. You are not alone and as long as you are here you will never be alone. There are people here who will pray for you, who will point you in the right direction and who will stand by your side helping you every step of the way.

There are wonderful people here

Elaine of TSA, Who ~ Knew, Anonymous40784, and Soulight 

are the most helpful and wonderful people. Together we can help you find the assistance you need, pray you have the strength and courage to make it another day, and encourage you to take the steps to help yourself.

I can not help you financially, I can not do what these wonderful people do everyday. But I can help you learn to be more self sufficient, and I can help you find the HOPEFAITH, INSPIRATION, COURAGE, and STRENGTH that you will need to climb the mountain in front of you.

With Love in my heart,

Lady Christie

is only what you really need.

Too many people spend money they haven't earned,
to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like.
-  Will Rogers

If you want to feel rich,
just count all the things you have
that money can't buy.

Christie, I desperaately need help to pay my rent.I have tried everybody but nobody wants to help me. If I do not get the rent money by Friday me and my family will be homeless and I will lose everything that we have. I wish someone would help us because I have never been homeless. We need a miracle.

I desperately need help to pay my rent, electric and water. Is there anyone out there who can help me. I have tried everything. I do not want me and my family to end up homeless especially in the mountains of Bryson City, North Carolina.

I moved out here to California to take care of my Mom because her health had been failing her for a long time and she had nobody to turn to. I left everything I had to do this, but I had to because of the love I had for her. I had been unable to work because of her medical needs, and she has just passed away a couple months ago. Although I am looking for work like crazy right now I am having no luck, and I am being kicked out and evicted from this apartment. I have nobody to turn to and No one will help me. Do you know what I can do?? I have tried everything. Red Cross, Salvation Army, Welfare Department, Catholic Charities, and so on and on and on. I can't find help and I am scared. Do you know what I can do?? I am open for anything right now.
Thank you.

Just had my 10 yr old grandson die from neuroblastoma (cancer) and was taken out of the workforce with two lower inguinal hernias. Even after two failed surgeries i am still incapacitated and need more surgeries to correct the problem. Anyways, unemployment ran out a long time ago, wife is working three pt time jobs to get us by, but not nearly enough...still not making it. After the hardship of medical and burial costs for my grandson....just this short of a cardboard box on a sidewalk, but coming soon if i cant figure anything out. Disability is not possible as hernias are cosmetic, tho i cannot pick up my 35 lb granddaughter without extreme discomfort. Dont know what, if anything you can do, but obviously i am floundering if im looking on the internet for help. Thnx for your time.
