I recently lost my father on December 24, 2021. It was an awful blur of a time especially trying to get back to normal life tasks work children friends and myself. My mother processed him death and we haven’t always had a good strong relationship. Well this situation of complete pain and grief we turned to each other especially in the times my children where visiting their father. (About 12 years ago with my dad and mom we took a vacation to Jasper Ark. i was to then announce once I was there I was pregnant with my daughter) this trip was being planned my mother for this summer and it was an awesome idea for us to all join here. We (me & children) later flew to meet her there she drove a week early and my brother and nieces would be there to. Such an awesome time a repeated trip that even my daughter knew meant so much bc this was the last big vacation i remember with our being a mom with my father. Well trip concluded and we are to ride home with my mother back to Florida. Plans are to stop half way and get rest we choose New Orleans and this is the Actions that have been a total mess of circumstances. The next morning my mother now hasn’t been the best of moods and wakes up 6am to search for a cigarette and an argument starts with myself bc she is to believe I have hidden any cigarettes from her. That she is not going to go anywhere and if she does she is not coming back. I leave our hotel room in hopes to bum a cigarette! My children are now awake and follow me to the lobby. We decided to take a few laps and let everyone cool down after no success of bumming a cigarette. We returned to the room and my mother is gone. I wasn’t panicking bc no way to leave my kids stranded 11yo & 7 yo 500 miles from anyone to help them. Well she did and we are stranded now at the mercy of family and friends to help us get the funds home. It was a lot of efforts but it got us home. But a day late and 5 hours later bc I was to be at work which they were all kept notified of the situation but yet after all the efforts didn’t foresee me getting fired from a job I loved and been at for two years just a serving job but it kept a roof over us and food on the table. So now I am almost a full month out of work and home with no family other than my mother that stranded me and I feel rightfully so to blame that I am looking at power turn offs, unpaid rent, no fund to prepare for my childrens school not even enough to buy a pair of shoes it’s been the worst thing to have my mother be so cold to her own daughter and grandkids. I’ve filled everything from government help to asking anyone for any help I did start a job but it will be two weeks before I get paid and I’m almost scared I won’t have any change to keep my car fueled. I am unable to get unemployment as of now it’s pending but it was not a at fault reason to be fired but the point. Is I’ve ran out of time and resources as to why I am now letting my story out for everyone and for ever. I need help to get me to the end of this mess and that way I don’t crumble completely. I truly cannot believe it’s been as difficult to have any help for any emergency assistance and then as far as loans my student loan is definitely not helping me get qualified for that. All I’m saying is they’re has to be something for people that need that gas money to get the paycheck the help to not get evicted the support to give the children a chance with good supplies at school all while it just being a small speed bump that doesn’t want to be a permanent detour!! I really would set for the month to catch up all bills gas for work and help get some supplies for school with around 600/700 but anything is better than nothing!!!
