Cross # 11.85616

Manteno, IL

I received this cross from my very best friend, my sister Lynda.  Her support and encouraging words give me strength and a positive attitude during such a difficult time.  I’m 54 years old and a single mom.  I lost my job of over 20 years two and a half years ago.  I lost my house and am now living with my mom in her extra bedroom.  For that, I am fortunate.  My children, although, self-sufficient at 18 and 20 years old stay with friends.  They are very unsettled and I worry , as any mother would.  I know there are many people in my situation who are much less fortunate and my prayers are with them.  I thank God for my faith, my family and now this cross.
