Please help me keep my business

Those who know me, know I wouldn't ask if I weren't at the end of my rope. I am humbling myself.

I have owned and operated Wild Country Studios for almost 20 years now. I do Website Development, graphic design and photography.

Six years ago April 26th, my son SSG Brandon F. Eggleston was killed in action by an IED in Afghanistan. It was devastating as you could imagine. I have suffered from clinical depression since which is debilitating at times. The medicine keeps me tired and often unable to focus.  I have lost passion for many things that made me who I was. Photography, hiking and just being active.

Several months ago I became the temporary guardian of my 9 year old twin grandsons who have some special needs and are going through a very difficult time in life due to circumstances out of their control. They are extremely loving and need constant reassurance of love. Which is a great blessing to give and receive.

Although being an entrepreneur is helpful for taking care of them, it has taken a huge tole on the number of hours I can dedicate to my business. I've gone from working 10-14 hours a day to only 6. Income has been cut drastically while expenses have increased for gas, food and utilities. I've sold what I can to make ends meet as well as taken out loans.  I cannot take on outside work or another jobs to make ends meet. There is simply not enough hours in the day to do it all now.

The anxiety and stress paying my bills, meeting my client needs and my grandsons needs are exhausting.

Please help me get through this temporary set-back so I can better enjoy the blessing of being with them. I just need to catch back up on my bills and get back to a regular work schedule soon.

We are looking forward to the boys returning to their home this year. We are extremely grateful for your prayers and any help you can afford.  May God bless you always.
