I am enjoying everyones comments on the post below. I sure want to bless someone, wish it could be everyone. I have some bunnies, but it is probably to late for anyone to purchase one for Easter now. I am going to picture them, and if anyone would like to buy a set, the price is $28.00 + shipping, leave a comment, and I will list it in my etsy shop tomorrow so you can make the purchase.
It has been a very difficult week for me. I have been trying to help my sister get back on her feet, after a very nasty divorce, a severe back injury (her x tried to run her over with his suv, and left her on the side of the road) the loss of her job, all her worldly possessions, her apartment,and nearly her life.
She came to live with me last July. The police found her in her apartment "barely breathing". After convincing them to "break and enter"( She was in Florida, we are in New York). She spent three weeks in a hospital in Florida, and another three in a rehabilitation center to gain back strength and weight.
I flew her to New York, July 4th and she has been with me since then. She only weighted about 95lbs and could barely walk by herself. At that point I did not know what I could possibly do for her, except to give her a place where she could feel safe, loved and valued.
We got her some medical insurance and began the process of getting her healed physically. I am happy to say she is mending well. She is almost like herself. She has been so wounded, and is just now opening up to people and is beginning to trust more. I am proud of her! Blog land has been good therapy for her, many of you have visited her blog and have left many encouraging comments for her, I thank you so much!
No one knows, the extent to which another person can harm another. It is my prayer that she will continue over coming and will be able to live on her own again, To be gainfully employed. She is very brilliant and has a heart of gold. She loves to teach, and she is very good at it. Please join me and pray for her to be all God has created her to be, and to take back EVERYTHING the enemy has stolen from her, because she fell in love with the wrong man.
This week she has been very busy getting her life back on track, she is getting legal aid, is applying for jobs, and is visiting my brother this weekend, to buy her own car. This scares me, a bit because I do not know if she is ready, but I support her, and I do so want her to succeed.
Not sure if she is going to appreciate me posting this, but I wanted to congratulate her on her accomplishments and to tell her not to worry about my stress, because it has been worth every ounce of it, to see her today. My embroidery orders will get done, she is more important. God is good, all the time. Vanessa
