Dear Sir

I need help. We need help. I just hate to ask for help. We are not extra ordinary people. I am 63 years young and live on social security retirement. I attempted to run and build an electrical contracting company from 2008 to 2017. That ended in me owing money in multiple areas, because of people that would not pay for services rendered. This area is covered with what I believe to be unfair business practices and unlicensed contracting. My wife is disabled with many complications after she fell years ago. Her income is limited to social security disability income each month.  We are taking care of two of our children 42 and 38. Both are mental challenged and unemployable. They each have a small social security monthly income. The boys are a constant challenge and struggle, and are expensive. One of them has to sleep on the sofa. The oldest boy causes much contention for all. We are trying to provide a structure that is not available in group homes for as long as we can. The house we are trying to survive in is 872 square feet. All the doors have been removed inside so my wife can get around in a wheelchair. The roof leaks. The heating and air conditioning expense is triple what it should be. When the house was built the ceiling was made with 3/16" foam panels. With little insulation. Some walls have been found with none. We are working on repairs. Time, help, weather and money makes repairs slow. The roof has been replaced on the front quarter of house. During the time that roof was removed, rain storms destroyed an 8ft × 30 ft section of ceiling. This is presently patched with trash bags. Because my wife can hardly get around in the house, she chooses to stay in bed. The bathroom has a constant backup problem, and personal hygiene of the boys scares my wife to the point she will not use this bathroom for fear of infection.  We had to install a working toilet by the bed for her. She bathes out of a big pot of water. We have started a new bathroom that is closer and easier for her to get to. This area of the house is open and exposed. It is covered by tarps to keep weather out. Part of our clothes are hung outside under a covered porch. The house is full of flies, spiders and mosquitoes. Each month we make progress, but each month money runs out. We are covered in Dr. bills. We are told our household income is too much to get help to cover the 20% deductible. Household Income come is too much for help with food too. We are growing a garden so soon will have a little extra food. My wife is a diabetic and most meals I fix seem to send her levels up. To manage her pain, we have to travel to Batesville Arkansas twice and sometimes three times a month. This is a 2-hour trip. The VA covers my medical. Recently they made a change that requires me to travel to Poplar Bluff Missouri for therapy for stress and anger management. This is a 1-hour trip. The youngest boy had heart surgery in April. Expenses and travel have been great. We are not able to secure loans nor would we be able to repay them. We are looking for help to patch up our house. If you are aware of an individual that knows how to write Grant's that may help. Or advice where to seek help.

This is one of the nicest e-mails I have ever seen !!
I dreamed that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged
for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.
"How is it that there is no work going on here? I asked."
"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments."
"How does one acknowledge God's blessings? "I asked.
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord."
"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.
"If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy, and if you get this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."
"If you woke up this morning with more health than illness.. You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day."
"If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
"If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world."
"If your parents are still alive and still married.... you are very rare."
"If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair......."
"Ok," I said. "What now? How can I start?"
The Angel said, "If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you as very special and you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all."
Have a good day,count your blessings, and if you care to, pass this along to remind everyone else how blessed we all are..........
ATTN: Acknowledge Dept.
"Thank you Lord, for giving me the ability to share this message and for giving me so many wonderful people with whom to share it."
If you have read this far, and are thankful for all that you have been blessed with, how can you not send it on?
I thank God for everything, especially all my family and friends.
