After a COVID Scare, I Need Help Keeping My Phone Service Please!
I'm a single mother, and I raised two young men on my own. My oldest is 27 years old and is living on his own, while my youngest is 18 years old and is attending school at Georgia State University. I'm very proud of my sons, and I'm thankful that I never struggled while raising them because I was able to put my faith and trust in God through every situation.
I was working two full-time jobs to cover all of my expenses, but now that I'm older, my body has started to reflect the toll that working like that for so many years can take. I'm overworked, and it's had a huge effect on my body and mind. As a result, I had to quit one of my jobs, so now I'm only working as an overnight shift worker for Wal-Mart. I have also been working on getting my license in health and life insurance, so that I'm able to find a more stable career. I've even managed to find a job doing that, but I'm waiting for them to process my background check still. Recently, I had to take time off from my overnight shift due to a Covid scare, and during that time, I was only paid a portion of my income. As a result, I'm going to come up short on my monthly bills, but specifically, I'm worried about my phone bill.
If I'm going to start this new job in insurance, I'll need my phone to communicate with work and with my clients. I'm also worried about losing my phone because I don't have any other way to easily communicate with my children or with the rest of my family. Once I start my new job, I'll be able to get back to being self-sufficient, but in the meantime, I would feel very blessed and grateful for this assistance with my phone bill. Once I get past this hurdle, I promise to pay the generosity that I'm shown forward to someone else in need.
