OK - I am now putting off getting up and doing my work-out. Don't get me wrong - I've already been up doing chores. I just crawled back onto the sofa to check emails and BLOG. ( I really think I am going to enjoy this Blogging thing.)
We got a letter from the Social Security office yesterday saying that Trammell has been approved for Disability Benefits. Praise God! When he turned 18 in July they stopped the $733.00 check we had been getting for him being the child of a disabled person. I had been told that as long as he was in school he would receive that check. What I had not been told is that I had to fill out forms and show proof that he was in school. Of course we found this out after the fact. When I got to the SS office they told me that since he was disabled himself that we should just file for his own disability benefits. They said it could take up to 3 months to hear something but PRAISE THE LORD we got the letter yesterday saying he had been approved. They down side is that we have to go another month living on 733.00 less a month.
His check will start the last week of Oct. The thing we worry about the most are the three families we are trying to help each month. If there is any family or Sunday School Class or group out there who would like to take over helping one of these families PLEASE let me know. These are families going through tragedies like ours. Like us they appreciate ANY HELP THEY CAN GET. Please Pray for these families and for our family.
