So I have an idea to tell you my story
some of it you’ve heard from reading other blogs and ask for your help. But instead of asking you to help, I’d like to offer something to you also. I prefer to make each situation a win-win and give also.
So anyone who donates $50 or more and sends their email address will receive a copy of How to Get Your Life Straight, an eplaybook that you do by answering questions, or creating a plan, or reading a book or viewing a video to create the life of your dreams. And for anyone who donates
over $500, you will receive a free up-to-one hour Secrets to Youth Consultation
as well as the book emailed to you. When you befriend me by helping my family and i, I choose to befriend you and donate something to you. Blessing to all good, peaceful, responsible, living men and women everywhere.
If you choose to help
my family and I, you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Here’s our story.
I’m not sure it will be clear but will do my best. As someone called a philanthropist for giving 14 complete strangers a home within my home, I offered others an opportunity to get on their feet again and provided everything they needed without asking for anything in return. Most lived with me for a year or more and there were usually only one or two at a time. However, once there were three women, Sandra, Laurel and Elizabeth, who were with me for years and each had jobs and paid rent. They all asked to move with me when I was moving from New York City to California. So I agreed.
I should say here that the reason I took each man or woman into my home is because I felt empathetic as could imagine myself in their shoes and asked what would I want someone to do for me? So I said the rules are no smoking, drinking, drugs, swearing or weapons and if you have a problem come and speak to me. Oh, and one had to clean up after him/herself and partake in chores to keep the home clean. We had a nightly or weekly meal together to discuss anything on our minds which depended on the needs of those living with me at the time. I don’t see what I did as something miraculous, but as the right thing to do. I expect others would do the same. Sadly, I’ve learned in life that that is not true. I’ve only spoken to a few others who have taken in a complete stranger and most of these men shared that they were taken advantage of. I won’t go into those stories now. I don’t see that they were taken advantage of but it’s so relative.
Jump forward many years.
Now my family and I need help. In early May of 2006 we were rear-ended TWICE by a commercial truck on the I5 freeway in a hit-and-run collision. We were stunned and ended up brain injured (had most of the 20 or 30 symptoms of brain injury like losing memory, not being able to speak clearly, forgetting English, not able to comprehend English much because everyone spoke too quickly for us) and I had a tough time walking. I was in dire pain for quite some time. I do not recall if my daughter would say she was in pain because she kept a strong front so as not to worry me. We are both worriers. We slept for nearly 23 hours daily for nearly two years and she would wake me once a day (or was it more?) with food because she was afraid I would die if she did not take care of me. When I spoke to my Mom just after the collision, she said I was in shock and told me to take us to the hospital. But I told her I could not do that. My Mom was out of state and was not in a place where she could take care of us if she were nearby anyway.
These are experiences still make me weep
I won’t go into the extreme pain, loss of hope, and struggle it is to survive as a homeless woman. These are experiences still make me weep when I think of them. The police are so extremely evil it is insanity the way they disrespect those who they see need help so they abuse the homeless for a sense of power. I’ve seen many youtube videos of homeless being beaten to death by the police and these police are not fired or jailed or imprisoned for life. Why is a man or woman being allowed to get away with murder??? Others besides police were cruel as well. There were few, but there were some, who were kind to us and renewed our hope in mankind.
my Dad was a peace officer
I hate to say this because my Dad was a peace officer long ago and he is the one who told me to be very careful and never go to the police as most are corrupt and bribed so have no morals. Dad explained that most in the police force have little self esteem and confidence and gain it by having authority over others. It left us both quite sad to realize that those who are suppose to keep us safe have ulterior motives. Not all but most. My Dad had to quit the force because his fellow officers told him in Illinois to either accept the bribes or get out of the force if he wanted to keep his life. He left the force. The Serpico movie presents another story based on a man’s experience who was in my Dad’s position but stayed in the force. My Dad was concerned for his wife and young children being killed so felt obligated to leave to protect us but Serpico was brave beyond most and not sure if he had a family.
We are not homeless
now but living with a man who offered me a safe and peaceful home 1.5 years ago and I offered him a weekly consultation but ended up doing 12-14 hour day consultations because of all the issues he wanted to change. Well, after about 2,000 hours, he decided he did not want to let go of his weaknesses and improve his life any further, so we stopped. He now attacks me verbally and emotionally nearly daily and says I am to blame for him getting mad all the time. I have taught him the Four Agreements and even found them online just a few months ago and sent him the link but I doubt he has even listened to them. For anyone reading this… please make the Four Agreements with yourself to live by as your life will improve dramatically.
Four Agreements to make with yourself
Keep your word… be impeccable in your word.
Do not take anything personally.
Do not assume.
Do your best always.
My goal is $300,000 to regain our health and fitness
My Daughter, Son and I have all experienced brain injury and post traumatic stress and need many things to recover fully. As a former Consultant to MD’s, we’d start with Tesla healing protocols, many supplements, daily infrared saunas, trampolines, a miraculous chiropractors help at $1,000 first visit and $250 each follow-up, and oxygen therapy, magnetic therapy, and several new therapies that are not well-known, and the list goes on and on. Healing from the brain injuries and traumatic stress of our life-threatening experiences also requires a safe, home for all of us as others always criticize if we are sleeping more than they do, so a house would be one of the first things to purchase to provide that safe and peaceful environment needed to start the journey of our complete healing. The book entitled A Stroke of Insight by Dr. Jill Bolt Taylor explains how necessary it is to have someone to take care of you for a year or more to be able to regain One’s ability to function and heal properly. We had no one to help us. It was grueling because we could not even speak clearly or well to ask for help. Any phone calls I made, the doctor or staff would hang up because my speech was so bad and difficult to comprehend and soooo slow.

This is in memory of my wonderful Dad
whose birthday was February 13, 1917, in Saskatchewan, Canada, in the memory of a great man with a big heart who helped everyone he met who needed help and went out of his way to do it all the time. As an honored vet in World War II, a football scholarship to college, a peace officer, an industrial engineer, an historian, a collector of classic cars, and a great father and husband.
I love you Dad and wish you the best in every moment wherever you are. Please forgive me for being judgmental to you the last time I saw you. It breaks my heart when I think how cruel I was in my words and attitude. I love you. I will always love you for all the things you did for me all the time. I owe so much to you, dear, divinely-loving Soul.
