As you can imagine, among all of the unknowns that I have had to contend with, financial responsibilities are beginning to weigh pretty heavy on my heart and mind. I am so incredibly blessed to have the most thorough insurance coverage on the planet and can't thank my Tribe enough for their Health Benefits. I know at this point I will be unable to go back to work anytime soon, if ever. I am ALSO blessed in that I was approved for disability payments *just* in time! That being said, the amount is of course a fraction of what my normal monthly income would be and the trips to the hospital and day to day costs, monthly bills, still providing for my kiddos and their needs, it was all beginning to pile up in a way that was causing me some pretty serious stress.
And then.... lo and behold my beautiful warriors once again come to my rescue! They began a fundraiser, which not only raised money for me to set aside to help pay for things down the road and other anticipated costs. My good friend Mike coordinated with my amazing cousin, Ginnie to create and sell hoodies, t-shirts, tank tops, etc. And they are all in my favorite color, PURPLE! My people really do go above and beyond! So now every Monday is 'Missy Monday' and I get to feel the love and support from everyone and enjoy the waves of purple!
