A fresh start and a little bit of help

I’m not going to say things haven’t been good for me because they have and I’m so grateful, but something major has happened and the weight on my shoulders waiting on an outcome is taking a toll on my every day well being and my children as well. I am a single mother of two.. Charlie is 11 and Jensen is 7. This whole time I have raised them alone and have never received a dime of child support. I fully support my little family all by myself. I have a small business cleaning homes and running errands for people and also I substitute teach for the school district here. I do anything I have to do just so kids have what they need and bills are paid. I have a 2013 Hyundai Veloster and I’ve been paying on it for 6 years and have 10 payments left which is roughly 2500.00! I have waited so long to pay it off so I can breathe for once and not worry about the 276.00 I always pay monthly! Like how cool is that!? Well... two weeks ago it decided to only go 40 mph and nothing over that or it just revs up super high and I’m terrified I’ll get stranded somewhere. So I go 20-30mph to play it safe. (People behind me don’t like it I bet ) I’ve called around and got quotes for diagnosis and  repair and it’s the same amount as what my car payoff is! 2500.00...  when it rains it pours I tell ya. Story gets even better.. I thought well hey , I can work on my credit a little bit and just trade it in and get a new car! I’ll have to! I came to peace that I won’t be saving 276.00 a month anymore. Problem was solved. Well ...until I walked out of my house yesterday with three brand new slashed tires from only God knows who.  I keep to myself and never in the slightest deserved such damage.  It could be anyone ! It’s dark out here where I live... kids smash mailboxes and start fires so maybe that’s what happened. So now ... my car I was going to use as a trade in has three cut open tires and has the mechanical problem. I’m doomed.  I have no car now and I sub frequently and clean homes as much as I can bc I’m the only provider for my kiddos. Everything will work out because it just will. I have faith in that. The only reason why I’m asking for help is so that things get resolved quickly and my kids don’t have to worry about anything. It’s for them, more then me. They are just sweet and curious and innocent and I want them to see mama will handle it. This too shall pass.
