Hello my friends....I am back. I feel much like this picture. New life sprouting from an old and dead looking limb of a tree. My faith and the faith of my friends have pulled me and my tiny family through an ordeal that should never happen to anyone. The best thing I can say about this is that no one is sick or dying. The inner flames of our souls have been dimmed, to say the least, but we have stuck together and weathered the storm. Its been a dark, horrible road and I never want to go there again. We will be dealing with the "after effects" for a while yet but the memories will stay with us forever and have left us forever changed.
I may write about it someday. I can't right now. It would infuriate some of you, puzzle some of you and some of you just would not even believe that such a bizarre thing could happen.
Yes, bizarre, unfair things happen to good people. People who have done nothing to deserve it. That has shaken my faith but I'm working on that. I've always believed that things happen for a reason and I'm trying hard to figure out what the reason is in our case. I haven't found it yet.
All I know is that it was a very unfortunate series of events that led to this and it began 18 months ago. It was all started by a spiteful teenager who wanted to "get even" and it opened up a huge pit of heartache for several people who did not deserve it. I would not want to be this teenager when she is someday made to be accountable for her actions in life. Its hard not to hate her but hate only hurts the hater, so we will not allow ourselves that emotion. KARMA will take care of her.....of this I have no doubt whatsoever.
Thank you all for thinking of me, for your wonderful comments and emails and for coming back at intervals to check on me. It will take me a little while, but I'll be OK.....I just have to find that danged sense of humor of mine.....it ran off and hid on me during this last month. God Bless.
