This isn’t a real post but I just wanted to share. I don’t usually get into family details on my blog but I’m making an exception today.
The last decade has been tough for Victor’s meemaw. Her husband (and Victor’s idol) died, then her daughter died, she lost much of her sight, and she realized she was going to lose the tiny garage apartment she was living in near Dallas. Last week Victor and I were able to get her a pretty, one-bedroom apartment down the street from us, furnish it and replace her broken appliances, and move her where she’ll be safe and secure and closer to family. When she saw the apartment she cried because she told us she never thought she’d ever live anywhere so nice.
We are so incredibly lucky to be able to do this for her, and it would not have been possible without you. In the last few years if you read this blog, or advertised on it, or visited the sponsors, or bought my book, or purchased something from my shop you’ve helped me. You helped me to be someone I never thought I could be. You helped me have faith in myself. You helped me help other people who then helped others. I know that everything in life moves in ripples and that we affect each other all of the time, but I want you to know that I can see it so clearly today. You’ve helped me. I can never thank you enough for the changes you’ve made in so many people’s lives, but I can thank you for the wonderful things you’ve brought to mine. Thank you. There aren’t words big enough to say it as strongly as you deserve to hear it.
Never doubt that you make a difference…one so much larger than you could ever know.
PS. In a perfect world I would thank you with a sweet picture of meemaw right here, but I can’t find a good one so instead I’m using this:
