What you didn’t ask for…….


Where I revealed an embarrassing moment that is haunting me……still is by the way……
gauged on your reactions…..
thank you.
But this post is even harder for me to share.
I know that some of you are a little nervous………….
 
Don’t look so shocked!
For about two months I have had laid on my heart a burden to share something personal for me and it is related to the tough times that we all may be experiencing.
 
They can be overwhelming.
About six months ago I found out about a program initiated by The Financial Stability Plan to help homeowners re-fi their homes if they have gotten behind on payments or maybe not behind on their payments but their income has taken a hit and they could use some assistance.
 
It is comforting when sometimes our circumstances are out of our control for us to share with each other the truth of where we are.
Truth……
I needed that assistance………
 
The assistance can be a breath of fresh air……………..
If you find yourself needing assistance with your mortgage………start here…..
    * For Fannie Mae
              
Find out if you are a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac backed loan.
They are government mandated to help you if you are….they have to offer you some type of solution.
There are two different programs you may qualify for.
 
You are not alone.
If you are not Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac backed, don’t be disheartened there are still ways to approach your lender. 
If you know of someone struggling that may need this assistance, share this post with them.
It seems to be something that is affecting us all but we are all hesitant to share.
I have been surprised by how many in my close circle have needed this assistance but may not have been aware that it is there.
There is an expiration date of this program. HARP expires June 30,2011 and HAMP  expires on December 31, 2012. Your trial modification must be in place by that date.
There are also VA Programs that I am not really familiar with but are governement mandated as well.
   

This post may not give you a “chuckle” or as my cousin so eloquently said after reading the previous post …..that he about “blew his coffee from out of his nose”…..but I gotta keep it real here.
We are who we are……
Your coffee will stay where it should be….sit back….relax and  just know that the reason we all relate is because we are all so much alike in many different ways.
From one friend to another know that you are not alone or that someone you may know is not alone.
 
Shewwwwww…..glad that is off my chest…..
Now, I have to get my hiney up out of bed because Romeo is folding all of our laundry……
He so needs me………..
love,
Me 
P.S. special thanks to “Pipsqueak” for sharing his intimate feeding time in our improvised high chair………
Told you he was a “stress reliever”
