My daughters dream to be lawyers someday; well I can now guess what they will specialize in. I wish I could share and tell stories of how I am helping others. Instead, I am being helped as of this moment. Will there be a job for me today? What about health insurance? My daughter had her tooth pulled out weeks ago; I needed to borrow $150 dollars from a friend and had to tell her I have no idea at all how to pay her back. Thank God for friends who understand the situation one is in. Until I get a job, debts would just keep on incurring for now.
Pulsewire is my lifeline now. It is my hope at the end of my rope. I started writing online because of Web 2.0. I started having friends online and they are amazing women. They gave me so many ideas on how to earn extra money by using the skills that I know. These women validated my worth which I thought I have lost so many years ago. These wonderful women were even asking for my advice or suggestion when I am no one important, I have not achieved anything big or great at all. I am one simple woman and yet, within this community I am needed and appreciated. I am now putting myself out there, using enough fortitude to earn and have great use of my skills. It is all because of the connection I have in this online community. This is my rebirth. My first step to womanity.
