I am not even sure where to begin, writing this seems as if I have completely given up. In this day and age it seems as if we should all be doing well, but in essence we are failing ourselves by owning credit cards. My wife and I aren’t maxed out on our cards but due to illnesses and home issues we started to add to our credit cards, we always pay the minimum but with interest it will take forever to pay these cards down. I have begun to rob Peter to pay Paul via our savings which is set aside for paying property taxes and I can see no end in sight with how we will start paying for larger debt if we are constantly dipping into our savings. I feel very vulnerable at this time in my life, short on savings, having to wonder if we’ll be able to make the mortgage payment and pay bills, or car repairs, no one should have to wonder if they will be able to make it by a thread.
I am grateful that I do have my life and marriage, a roof over my head, job and food to eat, how can one not be grateful for these things? I usually say that money is not as important as these things I mentioned, in all reality it’s vital, it’s what keeps us afloat and not having to just scrape by, that is why i am asking for the amount of $9000. I am sincerely grateful for any or all people that could help my wife and I out.
