I'm hesitant to share anything too personal about my up-bringing..i'm still a lil sensitive about it to be honest. But yes, there were many times when the bills couldn't get paid and my sisters and i were without electric and even hot water. We used candles and flashlights for weeks at a time and once even months = / it was very sad. Kids were so mean and they would crack jokes about my hand-me-down-clothes and my uncombed hair(until they realized i'd beat them up) lol...the cold showers were the worst. Or maybe it was having all of our belongings put out on the street. Yea, that pink-or sometimes orange- eviction notice was all too familiar by the time i was 17. But i'm 20 now and i am no longer paying for my parents mistakes = ) Praise God for peace and prosperity!
