Recently, an event happened in our life where our friends, who were our landlords kicked us out of our ranch home. We lived there happily and quietly for six years. We paid rent on time, and we often paid three to six months in advance. We never asked them to fix much rather, it was easier to cook a meal for our friends and have it done so we were not a bother to the landlords.
I thought at first this was devastating. After a few days and an out pour from our community, we realized that we have to take the time to see our struggles as an opportunity for growth and change. That sometimes the worse struggles are the ones that make you stronger and wiser. We are given the opportunity to say I can do this rather than saying I can’t do it.We are paying Leslie’s bills off after her fighting a devastating brain tumor that required 3 major surgeries and radiation, against all all she survived and just six months ago she finished radiation. She grows stronger daily though she suffers with memory loss, stamina, headaches, and she wears an eye patch as she was left with double vision.
We understand that growth is a road that is rocky, and path is not always easy to walk, however, through all
of this, we are given the opportunity to learn that it is through our struggles, and this is a struggle as we owe thousand of dollars in medical bills and we have no money to move. We estimate about 4500. When we moved here 6 years ago it cost us 3,800. This includes deposits, animal deposits, utilities, transfer fees and a moving company.
Please find it in your hearts to reach into your pockets and help us so we can find a home. We know it is the holidays and we cannot help that the the landlords needed do this at the beginning of the holiday season however the point is we have no money as we have wiped our accounts to pay medical bills. What we are left with is the hope that this will work out. We are reaching out to a community of friends and strangers to help us. Our motto; "You can take our home, but you cannot take our smile, hope and faith.” It is our hope and faith people will help us.
Leslie and I want to move and then start a foundation called Smile Hope and Faith to help others who are thrown into a sudden crisis like what this did to us. We want to take our crisis and show people that there is always light even at the end of the darkest tunnel. Please consider a donation. Being asked to leave your home is never fun, but we can as a community turn this darkness into a ray of bright light. Thank you very much from our hearts to yours; Tyler and Leslie.
