Family in Need

My family needs financial help. We need cash to help pay off our friend who has been letting us live with him since December and helping us with food, gas to get to work and a storage unit for all the things that we don't have room for (all sentimental, nothing valuable to sell) since we don't have anything but one bedroom for three of us. I don't have any bills that can be paid for me besides giving our friend cash to pay his mortgage and utilities, etc. We only have obligations to our lifelong friend and really don't want to put him in a bad place because we're unable to pay him. If you have extra cash laying around or just feel like now is a good time to pay it forward, get some good karma and could help us out, you would be a lifesaver and all I can promise is that one day we will pay it forward, or even help you out with any jobs/tasks that you have been needing to get completed. My husband is a jack of all trades and can do just about anything and I am good at paperwork, filing, and office work. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 7.5 years and we are parents to our 6-year-old daughter that is the light of our lives. We also had two other furry "children" (our dogs) but had to put one of them down a little less than a year ago and we are still emotionally struggling with that. Unfortunately, we are a family who has fallen on hard times and would appreciate someone opening their wallet and their heart for a family who just can't make ends meet. It's very hard to have to ask family, friends and/or strangers for anything especially when it can't be paid back besides maybe doing some labor for the person donating or promising that we believe in karma and paying it forward and one day we will do the same for someone like us, and we already have on occasion. We just moved back to Indiana in December, right before Christmas. We had been living in Illinois for the last year to be closer to my in-laws. We are the people who may only have $5 to our name, but when we see that Veteran who fought for our freedom standing on the side of the road begging for money and/or food we will not judge on whether he just wants booze or drugs because all I see is a person like me that is in need and it's also a lesson for our daughter to learn to give and be compassionate...we will go to a fast food place and get some food for them, or give them the $5 if we're in a hurry. I cry a lot when I'm alone and pray for a miracle and for a job opportunity for my husband (I have a wonderful job, but I am underpaid and my husband is going on interviews, but not getting hired). I cry that at 6-years-old, my daughter is way too understanding of the fact that we can't buy her toys and what-not because I need every penny for food, gas, rent, clothes for her, items for her school, etc. We don't have a house or apartment but we share a bedroom with our daughter at a good friend’s house. We have a car but the transmission needs fixed and I'm driving my parents extra car (we would also need new plates and insurance once our transmission is fixed and help reinstating my husband’s license because his is suspended from not being able to pay a speeding ticket), but...we aren't standing on the side of the road without a roof over our head and we may not have a huge supply of food, but we have something to keep our bellies from rumbling. I thank God for my little family every single day, because I don't know how I could get through the day of always being stressed and feeling broken emotionally and financially without their love. I know money doesn't make the world go around, but I can honestly say that money would make life a lot easier because I wouldn't have to stress out about what I can't pay every day from the moment I wake up until the time that my mind finally shuts off and lets me get a few hours of sleep. I was on antidepressants for a while, but 1-I can't afford medication and 2-the medication only masks my problems, it doesn't solve them, so I feel I shouldn’t take them. Sorry for this being so long and I'm not sure how many people will actually read it since it's so long, but if you do, thank you. Even if you can't help us out, I would enjoy just getting an email wishing us the best of luck or letting us know that we are in your thoughts and prayers. It would warm my heart. Yes, I am asking for cash because that is truly what our family needs. Thanks again for considering a donation to our little family and thank you for reading my short version of some of our life story. I would love to sit down and tell you why we are in the position we are in, but it's just too much information to include in this already extremely long posting.
