I Am Scared I Am Going to Lose My Parents

Things are tough in my house right now. My mom is going to school full time. She has 1 year and a half left and she can teach. Also, she works a full-time job. My dad also works full time, but his job want let any one work over time anymore. We are also very tight on money. I am 20 years old. I have a job that I work 40 hours a week and go to school full time too. I give my parents my paycheck. Our family had a talk last night, my mom told us that she is very low right now and feels like it's her fault we are like this because she did not go to college. Also, she told us that she thought about if she was not here with us, me and my sisters would get her life insurance. Also, my dad works 40 extra hours.  He goes into work really early and work 8 to 9 hours of over time. I am scared that I am going to lose one of my parents. I can just sense that something is going to happened to one of them. I am very scared. I cried myself to sleep last night. All I could think about was not having one of them in my life. I doesn't know what to do. Please pray for my family.

Oh Sweetie, families everywhere are dealing with so much these days. I know it is difficult, but give your Mom and Dad extra love and undstaniding. Make them feel appreciated. Seems like you musn't have much time as a family. Leave unexpected little notes around the house, like love you so mch, draw a cute little smilie. Anything to break the monotony and make them smile.

Your family is working hard to better the circumstances. You should be proud of that. Have hope things will turn around for the better.
