My Travel Story

by: J Cooper Start Date: Aug 7, 2018 - End Date: Aug 16, 2018
I’m a single mother of four, an U. S Army Veteran. I work with disabled veterans. 
Three of my children are of adult age.
I have also a school age child.
I have been working since the age of 16.
I have been a mother before I was a mother taking care of my little sisters for my mother while she worked.
I have recently started to feel down a lot lately about my life and the state of feeling alone mentally.A good Old Army buddy who lives in North Carolina suggested I try to get away for a few days.
Kind of a mental health break.
Two of my older children ages  21, and 23 agreed to take care of my 8 year old to allow me some me time.
I’m trying this fundraising site just to see if it is even possible.
Whomever reads this I know will be blessed and even if you can’t help me just a kind word at this point would help.
Its a struggle everyday at times just to make everything keep working with now help. No child support  and all that comes with that.
I feel like the break would do me a lot of good.
I choose this destination because a good friend has found his peace there and recommended it to me.
I feel like this break even for just four days would give me new purpose.
