A senior client shared her experience with H.OM.E. DuPage as she navigated the Hardest Hit Reverse Mortgage Assistance program:
I am extremely satisfied with the services I received from my H.O.M.E. DuPage counselor Jo. She kept my fears at bay and helped me save my house. I would return to this agency and Jo again and again.
Thank you Jo,
Our certified and compassionate counselors can work with homeowners in crisis and struggling seniors. The FHA reverse mortgage program can assist seniors who are delinquent on real estate taxes and possibly facing foreclosure. Illinois Housing Development Authority (IDHA) created the Hardest Hit Fund Reverse Mortgage Assistance Program to help stabilize communities and keep seniors in their homes. Qualifying homeowners with an FHA Reverse Mortgage may qualify for up to $35,000 in federal assistance. To learn more, click here: https://bit.ly/2R8RkXa
Thank you Marsha for your endorsement, we are so happy that you can now remain in your home. Please contact H.O.M.E. DuPage if you or someone you know is at risk of losing their home.
I have 2 daughters living in Erie. The last time I counted, I had 45 great-grandchildren. One grandchild has 10 different children from 10 different fathers. My daughter Laurette was born in Springfield, Missouri. We kept her in the top drawer of the dresser, because we didn’t have a crib. We had a blanket in it, we had her head on one side on her feet on the other. We left the drawer open, and if she was crying, and we couldn’t take it anymore, we would shut the drawer. (Everyone laughs. He is kidding.) Then after she would quit crying, we would open the drawer. We keep razzing her about that. My other daughter was a little bit bigger. We had a crib for her. I made it. I make everything, I make furniture, I re-upholster furniture, I do everything. Laurette is an EMT at Emergycare, she took her test for Emergycare, she had to get a 78% and she got a 97%. I am real proud of her. She likes her job. Do you know one day they took her driver’s license? She was driving down 4th Street, had the lights and sirens going, and this idiot coming over for Street hit their ambulance. They took my daughter’s Emergycare license away because all Emergycare ambulances are supposed to stop at all white lines before they go through the red light. Now that doesn’t make any sense. Cop cars can go flying right through it, but if the Emergycare drivers don’t stop, they pull their driver’s license. She couldn’t drive her ambulance for 30 days.
My one daughter has five children, and out of those five, are 14 grandchildren. My other daughter has 4 children. I have 45 great-grandchildren combined. If we ever have a family reunion, God bless us.

“Anxiety can manifest a number of different ways; it doesn’t always look how you might expect it to look. In my case, I didn’t know what was happening when I started having trouble breathing and my hands went numb. My doctor explained that my anxiety was bypassing my consciousness and going right into my body, making it feel more like a physical illness than a mental one.
Since then, I’ve accepted that anxiety is just part of my life. I’ve learned how to cope with it, for the most part, but once in a while it can still sneak up on me and knock me flat. It’s times like those when I have to go back to the drawing board and try to find a way to combat my sweaty palms and shortness of breath.
However your anxiety shows itself, these nine tricks are worth trying next time it rears its ugly head…”

The first photo is from our golf tournament in September. Thank you again for everyone that came out! We were able to sponsor 180 women with your help! The second photo is of Parma, whose story is included below.//
Story of the week: “I am Parma. I am 33 years. I belong to the Khandwa community. We are farmers. When I was a child, I did not get the opportunity to study. I heard that they are going to start literacy classes in our village through the teacher Sunamani Harijan, I felt very happy. I attended the class every day. It was very interesting. I started to write my own name. I also learned few songs which encouraged me to attend the class regularly. The songs taught me about cleanliness, health, and hygiene. The stories shared at the class gave me joy.
I am starting to read and do a little math. I am reading about God and I want to know more about Him. Thanks to L.I.T!”
There are 3 things on my mind today: go vote (primary election), attend this workshop (Best Day) and go to the gas company (PGW) about my humongous bill.
When I went to my designated polling place, people that I’ve seen during the voting years, greeted me like family. They asked about my sons who grew up around many of them. One or two of them even “mothered” my boys when they were young, sending them home with a word of chastisement or a warning if they were caught doing something they “had no business doing.” Trust and believe, I heard about it by the time they got home.
The hard part about seeing some of those nice folks came when I had to inform them that my mother and my husband had passed away. They were so used to seeing us come to vote together that seeing me by myself made them ask if my mom or my husband were coming later, no, not this time.
For the first time, one of the volunteers had to explain how the “write-in” ticket works on the machine. It was truly interesting and I’m sure I will be using it more often after this. At the end of that lesson and my voting, she confided that one of my books really helped her through some challenging times and a tough illness. It was a blessing to hear, considering my own issues at this time. Her words took my mind off of some of them and it was really encouraging.
I found the same volunteer outside talking to another volunteer about her current pain and how difficult it was to move early in the morning and late at night. I felt led at that moment to pray for her because I know that no matter what doctors believe, God has the final say. We shared another moment of smiles and tears and then I left.
It was good to receive a blessing through her words to me and to in turn be a blessing to her. Sometimes the things we do out of responsibility reap bigger rewards than we can imagine in other ways. In spite of the rain today, I see blue skies.

I found this story intriguing thus, sharing it with all..
The Sainik school in Chhingchhip, Mizoram has made a historic change in its admission procedure. For the first time in 50 years, the strictly all-boys institution has opened its doors to girl students.
VK Krishna Menon, the former Defence Minister of India, had set up Sainik schools with the aim of reducing the regional and class gaps among officers in the Indian military. The first school was established by the Central government in Satara, Maharashtra in 1961. Since then, a total of 28 such schools have been set up across India, all under the purview of the respective state governments and the Ministry of Defence. Only the Lucknow Sainik school, which comes under the state administration, is an exception.
In August last year, the school issued a notification informing that 10% of the total class strength will be reserved for girls. Within a month of issuing this notice, the school had received applications from 31 girls from across the state who appeared for the written entrance exam along with the boys. 21 of them were selected for an interview, and 6 of them—Zonunpuii Lalnunpuia, Jurisa Chakma, Malsawmthari Khiangte, (11-year-olds) and Alicia Lalmuanpuii, Lalhminghlui Lallianzuala and Elizabeth Malsawmtluangi (12-year-olds)—were finally given admission.
Each girl comes from a different background, but in the school, they are family.

Story of the week, part 3: When Dr. Gordon was assigned to the case of the small stray Pittie, he knew she was unique, but he had no idea how his life would change as a result of meeting her. He was the first doctor to meet her when she came into the clinic, and he continued to oversee her care while she was there. He watched as she underwent testing and treatment yet acted like she was having the time of her life, and he was one of many who fell in love with her goofy, kind temperament. As time passed and her prognosis was still unclear, he began to wonder if she would ever find a home with someone who could provide the care that she would inevitably need, so after a few weeks, he made the decision to have his wife Adrianne come meet the still-unnamed girl who had stolen everyone’s hearts. Adrianne told me, “We were not looking to adopt a dog. I just wanted to meet her.” Isn’t that how most great adoption stories begin?
Check back each day this week for part of the story!

My pole journey started about a year ago by accident when one of my friends didn't want to go alone and I decided to go with her for fun and I was hooked. Throughout this year I have went from just a student to being a work-train and a pole officer. For me pole stopped being a hobby and turned into a very important part of my self-care routine . As cheesy as this may sound the studio became my second home and when I go, even if I'm not training, my mood immediately shifts and what is so rare about pfe is how everyone, and I really mean everyone, is so loving, accepting and helpful. Everyone there wants you to grow, to better yourself and we all have each other's back both physically and metaphorically. For me I am continously growing in our community, I went from being just a student to being a work-train and an officer and generally a much more patient person and a little less clumsy.- @jalaayman 🌟💓💞.
This is #storyoftheweek 👍🏻 When we first contacted Paul at Seamus O'Donnells regarding our service, he informed us that he had paid another company an upfront fee to manage his #businessratesappeal . Since instructed them he hadn't heard from them and found out that no appeal was ever lodged. We advised that this is quite common with companies who want paying before any work is done. We explained how CPA only get paid if successful and there would be NO upfront or hidden costs. Once we took the case we noticed straight away a discrepancy with the bill and managed to get £2,000 refunded back form the local authorities. #pubbristol#businessrates#ukbusiness#fairbusinessrares
I remember trick or treating as a child, and while there were some candy treats, we were mostly the proud owners of a bag full of assorted fruits and nuts! My brothers and sisters and I would sit for hours with my grandmother, cracking open walnuts. I can still remember how upset my grandma would get when she had worked hard to get a walnut open, only to have the edible part crack along with the shell! Hearing this sweet, elderly Christian woman spouting a few choice words made us laugh and was as much of a treat for us as the goody bag!
I also remember going to a Halloween party where we bobbed for apples and the Dad telling us to chew slowly as the apples had an extra treat inside! I found FIFTY CENTS!! Makes me laugh now, but then it was a FORTUNE! I’m also glad I wasn’t too hungry and didn’t swallow my treasure!
