My Family has never been that much blessed in financial prospect. Although we are almost always short on cash barely making the ends meet, the god had repaid that with a loving family instead. We had always been able to get through tough times together with both my mother, Joy and my father, Marcos doing everything they can to provide us with our needs. That, however, took a different turn starting on 2012. My father was fired from his job by the company he had served for roughly 30+ years. Although he had the option to contest it, for some reason known to my father alone, he opted not to.
Still that was fine. Although the burden was passed on to my mother and she was clearly feeling it, they kept silent about it until the changes in our livelihood became apparent. Still, our lives continued as is, rather, they didn't really have a choice but to make it so. But things just went from bad to worse, we couldn't pay the tuition fee from the school we we're enrolled to anymore. Being deprived of the choice to transfer, we had no choice but to continue studying there, knowing very well that our debt to the school keeps increasing every single day we spend and every lesson we learned. Perhaps, the fault may have lied in our choices. For wanting to get quality education despite not having enough finance to support it.
Still the fate, decided that it wasn't enough. My father was diagnosed with diabetes on the same year and took him away from us two years after.
Now, it's 2017, my mother is supporting the family alone on her own, aiming to somehow manage to get us through college. I wanted to lessen the burden on her, so any amount really helps.
