Help fund Kimberly

I lost my dearest friend in the world, my Mother Lynda, who I took care of for a long time. She needed my help & I wanted to be there for her always.  I miss her deeply.  My Mom is so precious & dear to me, & she died of heart failure suddenly after several months of struggling. It's been about 1 year & 3 months without her now.  I was the sole caregiver for her the last three months of her life.  It was very exhausting, with me  at the same time struggling with severe diabetes, & getting neuropathy.  Mom & l wanted to live in her house together the last 28 years.  I came home to help her at first, leaving music University & Orchestra to assist by trying to rescue her from a serious family crisis, & to eventually help & assist her daily in all things with her knee handicap. She used a walker & needed assistance with everything. I thought there was provision for me to stay here & to protect our family home, but found out it is to be sold, leaving me nowhere I can afford to go.  I love our home we shared together, but I am to pack up to leave everything I have worked on for so long at our family home of 47 years. I have done extensive work on the property. It's taken years to plant & grow special flowers in my garden. I love the rabbits & our wild doves, some of which I photographed for my book "The Almond Tree Aaron's Rod The Messiah KING of Israel." Having what I love sold when it was supposed to be protected is extremely distressing to my health.  This past year after Mom died my condition became life threatening. Insulin shots daily helped me somewhat, but also gave me cataracts.  I am still struggling daily.  The only way I can save our family home & live where I have for 28 years is for me to buy out the shares of two sisters, which is impossible for me at this point. I am trying to raise the money through my work, but it is a lot with the cost of living here being very high.  My Mom was so precious to me, & every day without her is an eternity. I lost my dearest friend in this life.  Her home is a treasure to me alone for sentimentality because I cared for this property for nearly 30 years through many tough times we shared together.  We spent every single holiday here together & she would never want me to be threatened to leave here or be forced out.  She always had my back. We fought the good fight together until the end of her life.  

My beautiful Mother was in the hospital for two months, & by the grace of God finally came home for three months.  She was completely bedridden 24/7 but we got through the holidays together. I gave my all tending lovingly to her needs & caring for her in that bedridden state 24/7.  It was a terrible situation to watch her suffer through for both of us.  She suddenly dialed 911 on January 22nd 2018, & died five days later on January 27th, 2018.  It was a total shock to my heart.  She was my family.  It was physically draining trying to roll her & put her in the lift, & wheelchair alone.  Her body was heavy with edema fluid that was backing up from her heart.  The separation for me has been heart breaking even though I know she is now safely in the arms of the LORD in heaven & is healed.  Your generous donations have given me hope.  My fund that I am raising with the help of my work, will go toward saving my home & help me be here to recover my health. I am working hard to market my book & share messages of the LORD with my You Tube videos with the little ministry I started online.  Your blessings will never be forgotten.  
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, with love Kimberly K Ballard
