A lot has happened since I last posted. My beloved sister-in-law, Linda, was in ICU at the hospital for over two weeks. During that time it was an up and down emotional roller coaster ride. One day she would be doing better, than the next she was fighting for her life. Then she'd get better, then something new would come up. Finally, when we all thought she was out of the woods, she passed away. It was such a shock. I miss her terribly. She was the one person who understood me completely. She believed in me like no one else ever has. Yes, my husband supports me and believes in me, but he could never relate to me in the ways that Linda did.
My husband and I live at my brother's house, and have since August. While I love my family dearly, it's just not the same here without her. So, please, if any of you read this, pray that God will open up a way for us to get our own place. We need a financial miracle. I don't want to trespass on my brother's kindness any longer.
During this holiday season, there is one thing that I am truly grateful for... Linda was a born again Christian.
I will try and post another short story sometime this week.
God bless you all.
