While my life with illness has been an open book on my blog I am very secretive when it comes to my family and my finances. At any rate, things have gotten very difficult at home (gulp, can you hear me swallowing my pride), with surprise dental issues with the kids and more (yes more) hospital visits from me, and a surprise increase in our monthly mortgage...well we hit a wall.
My sister, my amazing sister, set up a fundraising page for my family and I am just overwhelmed by her kindness, the kindness of strangers, and of family and friends. I think we just might make it through the holiday season.
Pat has been amazing, cleaning, cooking, going to school full time, and being a full time chauffeur to the kids and myself (with all my doctor's appointments I don't know how he has time to study or sleep).
Since it is Thanksgiving week I just wanted to say how thankful I am for my wonderful family, friends, family of "Snowflakes", doctors who love and listen to me, and in thankful memory of the most wonderful mom a girl could ever ask for. She was only 47 years old when cancer took her from us. So, thank you Lord for surrounding me with good, caring, and loving people!
Here is the link my sister set up, her words make me tear up everytime I read them:
