So many need help in these trying times, but most people don’t get it because they just don’t know where to look. I have prepared a few helpful references in the field of education, as well as ways to get help so that there is a little extra time to help make a difference. Remember my lovelies, it takes more grit and guts to get assistance than it does to remain suffering without help. That is a lesson I learned the hard way, and now, I’d like to give a little back for the help that I was given.
