M is For Micracles

About five years ago, I threw in the towel of working as a manicurist.  This job came to me as my desperate attempt to survive the life of a single mom. After bouncing around from store to store every few months for three years, I had it!

I was miserable, physically and mentally, thus I walked out of my job on Christmas Eve when the owner stood in the middle of the shop yelling and accusing me for all sorts of things, even though I've helped her in whatever she needed such as translating, teaching her to knit, cleaning the store, etc.

Making money was great, and I was able to give my children a more comfortable life beside the child support of $130 for three kids a week from their father. However, emotional and mental abuses were as constant as my breathing. The money became unimportant and filthy in every sense since my brain was pleading for a rest.

After a month of cleansing my soul, I came to the church to register my youngest son for catechism, and found out that it would cost me $150 for him to complete the process.  Tears rolled out my eyes as I stood up to tell the director that I didn't have that kind of money to pay. She quickly took my hands, and worked out a comfortable payment plan that I could afford, just so my son could attend catechism.

As I walked by the altar of my church, I looked at the cross and murmured to my almighty God: "I did my part; I give you my life; now it's up to you!" After saying that, I felt completely at peace and went home to work on my budget.  As I was trying to figure out where to cut to come up with the money, my daughter came home from school and told me that her friends love my hand-knitted hats and scarves that I've made for her.

She introduced me to two of her friends that she brought home, and each of them purchased a pair of hat and scarf for themselves. Out of the blue, I made $80 bucks, more than enough to pay the catechism for three months!

The next day, I received a phone call from the Friend of the Court telling me that I would get a raise for Child Support after they had denied me for more than three years, and not just a little raise; it was a double raise, which brought my Child Support to $170 a week!

After I had time to put what happened into perspective, I couldn't help but tremble, and realized that these were the miracles from God that I've received.  What else could they be?

Hurrah for you meeting an understanding person at the church, and cheers for you getting a break from the court to raise your child support. Congrats, too, for selling your handcrafted wares.
