This is my truth right now.
To update -
I want to offer profound appreciation for the immense kindness and generosity that has been offered recently, both from close friends, family friends and complete strangers. It has had me in tears at times. Even knowing that people are sharing our campaign has touched me deeply. Some day, we determine to be in the position to offer the same kind of relief to others who are facing their own challenges.
With that said, dear husband is currently in Seattle providing much needed support and assistance to his very dear friend. She was in a life threatening domestic violence situation that has had a very severe effect on her physical and emotional health. DH will be with her for at least another week or possibly longer to help her stabilize, and to ensure her safety and that some kind of care plan or system is in place. All of our friend's providers are very relieved that she has someone caring for her.
Meanwhile, I hold down the fort at home in Massachusetts. Bills still need to be paid until the house sells.
Please continue sharing. Every little bit - even $5 - will keep us going on both coasts for the next couple of weeks until DH can fly home.
Once again, this has shown me how incredibly connected we all are, as well as how important community is. Isolation and disconnection can be deadly, and no one should ever feel alone in their struggles. #gofundme #gofundmecampaign #jennsunshine58 #virginiamallen #family #caring #hope #nevergiveup #persistence #challenge #movingforward
