MOO

It's official....my mama is moving right down the street in a few short months. She has been on the wait list for govt. funded housing for 18 months and finally got a place. Actually 18 months isn't very long to wait from what I understand. The Payne household is so excited to have Moo, that's what we call her, walking distance from us. There will be some challenges along the way....since she is disabled and in a wheelchair....but I am confident we will overcome those, and she will be just as happy about the move as we are. Not only will we be able to drop by much more often, but she will be able to go to church with us (the house is right next door to our church), come over to our house more often, not to mention she will be saving a lot of money in rent. Her rent is based on a percentage of what her monthly income is, so it's quite reasonable. Plus since she does not have health insurance and pays part of her medicaid, she gets some sort of discount or kick back from that as well. I'm very proud of my mom and how well she's been able to manage living alone, since my dad passed 5 years ago. She still requires assistance, but overall....her hard headedness and determination has helped her to remain independent for the most part. This is going to be good!
