Help Us Improve Our Quality of Life

We live in a very small town (pop. 2200) in an income depressed area in West TN. Another factory just cut it's work force from 45 to 10, many have closed completely, along with many small and hometown businesses. I work for a transportation firm, (on call for 12 hours, only getting paid when I make a trip) and getting barely above minimum wage for the privledge. Many things have fallen to the wayside because the wages just cover the essentials (house payment, utilities, food). Our home is an old farmhouse that needs several things repaired, the most pressing things being the water heater (which went out just recently), the floors and the roof. We own one vehicle which at present is running on prayers and gasoline. We don't have insurance (company offers it but can't afford the payments) and just do the best we can with our medical and dental etc. My wife is an excellent seamstress and needleworker (crochet). Our children and granchildren look forward to the things she makes for them on birthdays and at Christmas. I would like to fix our large front room into a studio for her. She wants to give sewing and crochet lessons along with doing alterations, sewn and crocheted things. The room (aside from the floor needing redone) needs a good storage area for all of her supplies and she would like to have a sewing center one one side and in the center a table and seating where she can hold her classes. She is doing some sewing and crocheting now but would be much more productive for her to have a place her customers/clients could come to. I have some karaoke equipment that I want to use (will need a few other things to go with what I already have) and hire myself out for weddings, parties, etc. on my days off from my job, to also bring in extra income. Hopefully with these three things going together after we get the necessities taken care of, we can have the house painted and have our yard fenced in (someone broke into our back porch) where we can have a dog and maybe deter any intruders. Any kindness will be a blessing and will be appreciated more than words will ever be able to say. Thank you.
