Scrambled Eggs.

A girl feels like a plateful of scrambled eggs when her life starts to fall apart.

My name is Harmony Josephine (Jo), but my name belies my life.  It is anything BUT.

I am nine years old, fixin' to be ten in February (next month).  I live with my family in Naples, Florida.

All of this started back in September of this past year when my grandpa died.  He had cancer.  I was very close to my grandpa.  He really suffered; it hurt me to see him getting so skinny and weaker; it nearly killed me when I found out he died because I didn't even get to say goodbye.  Then his wife (my grandma) died of a broken heart.  I miss her too.

In October, we had cheerleading tryouts and I didn't make it.  The stupid coach said I couldn't be on the squad because I was "too fat".  Really??  I'm sorry; I can't help it.  I'ave always BEEN chubby; I get it from my parents.  I've tried dieting, but it doesn't work, and besides I DO get plenty of exercise! I'm always outside when the weather is nice!!

The only time I'm on the computer is before or after school (IF I don't have any homework) or on weekends if the weather is bad.  So don't say I am lazy because I am anything BUT!!

In November, Daddy lost his job; his boss fired him because he said he stole some money when he didn't do anything of the sort.  Another worker did and put the blame on Daddy.  Daddy has been looking for work since, but nobody wants to hire him because of this "mark" on his record.

Then last month, we come fo find out that we may have to leave our apartment because Mommy and Daddy are behind on the bills.  Mommy used to work, but she can't because she has something called "fibromyalgia", which means her muscles hurt and it makes her grumpy or sleepy.  Mommy doesn't sleep well at night.  Mommy walks with a cane. Just yesterday the landlord came and basically told Mommy if she doesn't have the money for the rent by Friday then she is going to throw us out.

Mommy has been on the verge of tears ever since.  It bothers me to see her being so upset.  

I feel like a plate full of scrambled eggs.  That is, my mind is all mixed up and full of these worries I have described above.  I don't know what to do to help my Mommy or Daddy.  And it makes me sad.  Very sad!

Just keep Mommy and Daddy in your prayers.  I have been praying for them, but it's like God isn't listening to us.  I would greatly appreciate it!

~Harmony Jo.  :(

If it ain't one thing, it's another ... sadly penned reality for far too many. Well done, Karen.
