as someone who has always extended myself to others and always helped others my whole life i have now found myself in a position of needing help. i never ask for anything from anybody so it is hard for me to "need" help but i do. we are so financially strapped that i have gotten behind on bills and have clothes with holes in them and that are threadbare. i had no money to buy my son school clothes and supplies and my hair dryer broke and i have very frizzy hair. a dear friend of mine who i correspond with on a regular basis has had a hard life and is now in a much better financial position and has married a very nice man who does well money wise. she has helped me so much over the last few months that i just could never repay her. she sends me walmart gift cards and fashion bug gift cards so i can buy myself and my son clothes and whatever else we need and she gave me some money to pay some back bills. my husband does not know i have accepted her help because he is too proud to take it but i am so grateful to her. has anyone helped you lately?

Hello mikeysmom! You are still very lucky because God sent you an angel to help you with your problems. I do believe that the friend who help you now is an angel sent from up above. I have experienced financial difficulty too especially when I am still studying. As you can see, it's hard for our parents to send us to school because we are 6 children in the family with a little age difference. I have friends helped me a lot especially financial things. In return, I helped them with their projects and assignments.
