      How are you?
      Sorry for the long delay in my response. I am ok, not much has changed for me. Its so hard to start over with no money or a car. I’m grateful to still be in my home. Its not really a home anymore just a place for refuge, a roof over my head. I struggle with c-ptsd & depression.

I wanna say I have faith that the God I serve will lead me to His will for me & I hope to find happiness there.❤
