Before all the chaos in the last 4+ years, we were a simple family living a simple life. I worked 60+ hours a week going from 3rd shift during the week to day shift on the weekends. My wife was a stay at home mom who spent hours volunteering at our kids school. And my kids? Well, they weren’t teenagers.
Living paycheck to paycheck, exhausted from week to week, and some how fitting in a little family time. Yep, that was a simpler time.
What changed? Money, a settlement(s) to be exact.
Did having money bring on new problems? Yes, but not like you’d expect. We didn’t have long lost family and friends coming out of the woodwork looking for a hand out. Our settlement(s) were kept extremely quiet.
Our problem was getting access to our money PERIOD.
Without getting into specifics:
* Imagine having a winning lottery ticket, but never being able to do anything with it.
* Imagine having an Executive order protecting you against harassment from any Government Agency and yet the harassment continues.
* Imagine going out and wondering if you’re being watched or followed today.
* Imagine having the FBI protecting you from ANOTHER Government Agency.
We’ve been fortunate enough to have met a lot of wonderful people who have been and are continuing to do everything they can to help us. Over these 4+ years we’ve been privy to information that absolutely blows us away, sickens us and burdens us knowing.
We now sit back and wait. Looking for answers as to why this is happening to us and waiting for the next shoe to drop. Is this a personal vendetta against us or is this just an act of a pathetic power hungry person(s) who can’t help but engage in illegal activities? Time will tell.
Sometimes I think back to ” A Simpler Time”. Thinking of how good and fulfilling life really was. And of course, when my kids weren’t teenagers.
