This summer was very challenging for me because I did not paid by Employment insurance. I live in one of the very expensive cities and how do you live with no money. I work for the school district so I’m off during the summer. Every summer I work with a boy who has special needs. This year I didn’t do that because I was packing and moving into a new home. All summer I phoned EI to find out why I had not been paid. My application was never processed every time I called. It was not until the last week before school started I got a phone call from a case worker telling me that I couldn’t get EI because my social insurance number was inactive. How could it be inactive when I have a full time job, I’ve collected WCB and money when Covid was here. They told me that it only gets flagged when you collect EI or get a student loan. I needed to get it activated again in order to collect the money.
I had to keep trusting God the whole time that I would get the money that was owed to me. Good thing I moved from a house to a much smaller place because I had to sell a lot of things. I think I met half of my city selling things. It seemed never ending but that money helped me to be able to buy food and gas. Larry he paid all my rent for two months which was great of him. I was so thankful for that. My church gave me money and so did a couple of my friends. My old neighbour he gave me a place to stay while my place was still getting built and he and his wife have become family to me. I don’t know what I would do without them both in my life.
I kept my faith in God and was able to start a home business selling some amazing products that are good for our planet. It’s a company that gets rid of all Chemicals we use in our homes and their products are good and natural. It’s called Norwex. Such a great company. This company provided me with money and I got cheques from different things to help out. Something always came when I needed it. I’m so blessed to have amazing people in my life who care about me and love me.
After I got my sin activated I then had to have a big interview for them to make sure that I was who I said I was. An investigor called me and asked me questions about me. She was a really caring compassionate lady. I have to say every person I’ve talked to from EI were awesome. I’ve chatted with many of them. On Friday I finally got some money from them. Seems like I’m back in the processing stage with my claim because I didn’t realize that doing my Norwex business means I’m self employed. I just do it for fun because I love the products and its not a serious business venture. Ha ha I’d be seriously poor if I had to run this as my only job.
Even though this summer was really tough financially I’m so glad that I trusted God to provide the funds I needed to survive. Thank you to all of you that have helped me along the way. I so appreciate each and everyone of you. 🙂
