Remember in my last blog I said you just have to believe that a miracle will happen? I got a phone call yesterday after some hard praying and talking to my angels. I asked for help in guidance and sanity to find the money to help me work harder to pay for what’s coming.
I got a call from that angel in the name of SSI. That’s Social Security Supplement Insurance. I heard her say “You’ve been approved.” I’ve been approved? I asked her if she was kidding me? No one calls you on Saturday from the Social Security place. She , “I do.” I almost started crying and told her she was what I’ve been praying for and that today she was my angel.
Angel’s come in every shape and form. Sometimes it’s just a whisper. Today, it was a telephone call. I must be doing something right. She said I had been approved to start receiving supplemental income and then in a few weeks I will start receiving my Disability.
I have been living off my piggy bank, the money I make on eBay, which is that much, and sometimes my mom sneaks in my room and drops a $10 or 20 in the piggy bank.
My phone had been turned off since I haven’t been able to pay it so I called my brother and asked it he wouldn’t mind calling my son for me. But first, I told him the news. All I got was, “Maybe I should try and get it.” I think he was jealous for some reason. It’s been that way between us for a long time. I felt like saying, “Well if you want all my pains of osteoarthritis, bipolar, diverticulitis, hepatitis c and so on you can have it.” My Dad asked me when I was going to start paying rent. I’ve lived there for 7 months now as their caregiver – taking care of both m and them then ask me for rent.
My loving mom asked me what I was going to buy first. I said, “Ink for my printer so I can print out my invoices. Pay my sprint bill, so I can call my son, pay my bankruptcy payment, take my dog to the vet, and then to the groomers. Oh, I should buy some clothes that fit me. All other monies is going in savings for a trip to see my son and grand babies for Christmas.
