humbled........

Well, once again, things are falling into place for good ol' Alli.

I just got the most humbling message from a good friend of mine yesterday. Apparently, my friends and nieghbors in West Middleton are getting together with West Middleton United Methodist Church to help me out with all the water problems I have had at my home. Some of you may not have realized that I have been without water for nearly six months now. My neighbors, on the other hand, are very aware, because it's usually their doors I'm knocking on to refill my jugs. It has been a huge struggle trying to save any extra money. My credit was ruined when Michael got ahold of my money, and I have to admit, I didn't always make the best financial decisions in the past. So, it has been one denial after another trynig to get loans, refinancing on my house, or any other assistance for that matter. I have had some very generous people (you know who you are) that have donated to the "Well Fund," and I thank you with all my heart.

When I got the news about the help they're providing, I almost cried......I don't cry. (It's called Lexapro) Most people would look at me and say I was crazy, or irresponsible maybe, for not being able to take care of this myself. I'm a grown woman (I don't feel like it sometimes,) I have a decent job, and in my opinion, I should be able to do this on my own. But, I tend to be a little stubborn, and I like to learn the hard way....I have definitely learned the hard way how NOT to handle my money. If it weren't for Ryan providing me with concert tickets and gas money for the shows all summer, I would have rotted away in my own little drought and misery. (Thank you, Honey, for keeping me sane this summer, and giving me an escape!!!)

Anyway, I just felt the need to let everyone know how thankful I am to have such loving and caring people surrounding me. I may not be wealthy in the monetary sense, but right now I feel like the most wealthy woman in the world!!!!

Allison, I can't believe you've been without water for SIX months!!! What on earth??? That's terrible!!!!

I'm so thankful there are still giving and caring people in the world who want to help when someone really needs it. Those neighbors of yours are angels!!

I know lots of prayers were answered with this one.

Everyone has to ruin their credit at least once in their lives and there's no better way to do it then through a divorce!!! You'll get through that too!

The hardest lessons are alway those we learn the most from.

I'll be over for a tall, clear glass of water soon! See ya!

Allison, I had no idea you had no water for 6 months! I think I knew you were having some well issues, but I guess I just assumed you had it fixed. I don't know how you did it! I know that had to have been just awful!

I'm so happy for you. God Bless the people of West Middleton! Isn't it good to know that God is watching out for you? When no one on earth knows your pain, and it seems you are destined for demise. There's always the One who hears your soul cry out without you saying a word, and He carries you to the healing.

Allison, don't ever go that long in such a position without letting the family know. Even if we don't get the picture the first time-like me! We're all here to help each other. OK?

Love ya!

PS-I'm sorry I can't cry for you...it's the Lexapro thing! :)
