On Thursday, July 30th, 2020, my world was turned upside down. My morning was pretty normal. Then, I received a phone call and was told that my daddy had taken his own life.
Asking for help is the hardest thing for me. I'm the one to help others, and I don't want to have to ask for help, but it's gotten to the point where this is my only option.
My dad's Celebration of Life is on September 5th, next month. I have to make my way from Florida to Pennsylvania, and I cannot even pay this months bills. Being off of work since July 30th, with Justin missing a full week of work, has put us in an impossible position. With COVID travel rules, and having to be out of work...this has been anything but easy. I'd give anything to be back at work, but I still cannot form thoughts easily. Trying to serve tables, and be my happy, everything is terrific self, is sort of impossible right now.
I'm reaching out to family and friends because at this point ANYTHING helps. Whoever you are reading this...I truly do love you. And thank you from the BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
