We had decided to pack up and leave behind the city I have called home for thirty-five years. Even Mommy decided it was time for her to leave and agreed to come along. We found a charming little house that was perfect for us with a beautiful yard and the best part of all ((besides being pet-friendly)) it was ten minutes from Will’s work. So, we dutifully filled out the questionnaire and scrounged around and managed to scrape up the money. We figured this was from God because why else would it go smoothly and happen quickly? After everything was done on our end, we waited impatiently and frequently checked for the “your keys are coming” email. Instead we got “I need help with this, I need that, you should do this”. After much deliberation and investigation, we found out we were scammed ((yay)). Now we have the daunting and tedious task of filing fraud claims with both the local police and the bank and possibly missing work for court in the future. Because of this scam, we are behind on rent and are fighting to catch up and our current landlord informed us today that “I don’t care about your situation, I only care about the rent for my apartment”. Things indeed look bleak true but…I have a job, I was blessed to spend Thanksgiving with family, my eldest son is visiting for the night, Will has been working ((and continues to do so)) through this never-ending pandemic. We still have a roof over our heads and food on our table despite the hard times. Our boys are provided for by family and friends.
While I may be in the valley right now and I have no idea what our future holds, God is here with me and I know I can trust Him fully to guide me and my family out of this valley as He has done many times before ♥
