LOOK WHAT YOU DID!

I am a 71 yr old woman with two older dogs and three elderly cats, one neurologicaly disabled and two of whom are deaf. I have a reverse mortgage and live on $1100 a month Social Security. My property taxes are $6,000 a year, half due by mid December. The rest is due in February. If the property taxes are not paid the reverse mortgage company will take my home. My partner of 25 years died of breast cancer after six years of treatment. We spent all we had trying to save her life. We lost everything and I have been struggling since then. I have tried to keep the house so that the animals could live out their lives in their own home and I wouldn't have to surrender them. I did rent out space in my home to a vetrinary oncology nurse. I took care of her two dogs and one cat for almost a year...she agreed to pay me but made very few payments. She failed to pay the rent on time, some months she paid only part of the rent, always with promises to pay the rent when she got her next pay check. This last month she did not pay the rent, gave notice with no intention to clean her area and left with a day's notice telling me, "that's what renters do" I've worked since I was 15 but 23 of those years were as a nun without social security credits. I live simply, drive a 13 year old van and try to manage my other bills with what I have. I have spent my life taking care of the poor and the poor have been my life's focus. They still are but I have very little to share now except the time I have left. I never turned away anyone who asked for help or those who needed help but couldn't ask. I now need to ask. Could you please help me and the lovely beings who live with me? With much gratitude, Lilly, Mackie, Sproinkie, Sweet Rosie O'Grady, Mu, and Jamie
