Now that we are in the last days of 2018, I’m hearing lots of talk about New Year’s Resolutions. Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of them. I mean, why do so many people make resolutions when they aren’t going to keep them? And, anyway, how can someone find a worthy, honest need that can be helped by any size of a donation?
If you relate to this, have I got good news for you! If you go ahead and make a New Year’s Resolution to help someone who really needs it, I will give you a suggestion of who, where, and how:
Nikki is a 30 year-old mother who lives with Nathan, the son of a close friend of mine. They both work hard, yet they are barely getting by. Nikki was working two jobs until one day a couple of weeks ago, when she woke up feeling sick. She went to the ER where she started having seizures. They thought she’d had a minor stroke. And then she did suffer a stroke. Not a minor one, though. A major stroke!
Surgeons were able to remove a blood clot that was lodged next to her brain stem. Thankfully, Nikki not only survived, but she has been given a good prognosis. But the road back to health is long and hard… and expensive! Nikki is re-learning to walk, talk, and do other day-to-day actions that most of us take for granted. She faces months of therapy and rehab before she can even consider going back to work.
My good friend, Nikki’s mother-in-law and grandmother to Nikki’s son, set up a small gofundme campaign to help ease the pressure weighing on Nikki as she gets well–and on Nate, too. (It’s cold outside! That means high heating bills.) And their little son. (Although Nate works hard, losing so much income at Christmas has been terribly difficult.)
I would like to ask you to please consider making a New Year’s resolution to help someone in need, then to keep it by helping Nikki in any way you are able. Give a little or a lot. Either way, it will mean a lot.

Thank you in advance from Nikki and Nate, all their families, and from me, too.
A happy and blessed New Year!
