Christa Giesler, my mother, 78, has been widowed about 13 years ago. Her love for people in selflessly giving herself, time and resources for others, less or not less fortunate than her, continuously touches my heart.
Christa has an endless fountain of giving, often at the cost of herself. When my father passed away she made it her mission from the little she has, to use her spare room to nurse people back to self support that have fallen from society in some or other way. The incident in her life that has motivated her to give the most is when my sisters ex-husband cheated on her and deserted her leaving her and her 2 children and unborn baby without support. The family is now living with my mother and her small pension has to pay for all costs sometimes even causing lack of food on the table. Trying to get support from a nonfunctional father is still and ongoing battle and scarcely provides anything. My sisters health complications prevent her from living alone - however she has taken work opportunities as they arise. The second hand car that another family member kindly supplied Christa is now falling apart due to the fact that it is a very old car requiring constant attention which there is no money for. To make ends meat my mother bakes all the biscuits for my business and travels every week by train to bring the biscuits and do the books for my business. Her determined and courageous personality and Spirit filled life has helped her learn a computerized bookkeeping system and she effectively manages the finances of my business. My hearts cry is for her to have her basic needs met in providing a reliable car for her so that the emotional strain that the situation has placed on her will be eased.
