Thank you all so much.... I've been pretty depressed the last few days, not knowing where I'll end up and all that. I thought the place I'm staying now was only a temporary thing, but in talking with the owner of the house yesterday, she assured me that if I need to rent and stay for a loooooong time, I'm welcome..... that was probably the BIGGEST load off my mind... Plus there is room here for me, my horse and my little dog.... I haven't felt like I had a home now for a while and after talking with Chris, the girl who ownes this ranch, I can stay as long as I want and rent the entire lower level of the house. She even asked me what she could to to make me feel more comfortable.. I was amazed with her generosity, when she hardly knows me yet..
Your posts brought me to tears... (happy ones)... The feeling of being cared for and thought about is such a healing thing when you are going through something like this. I am a bit overwhelmed with things still, but did manage to find a part time job painting houses for a painting contractor and still doing my hay business which has been getting busier every month. So, I should be fine financially and I know the emotional part will take some time, but with friends and support, that part will be all the more easier to recover.
Bob (Shrek)..lol...., You've been there for me as much as I for you... you are a very kind and generous man with your emotions and it goes a long way with people here at healingwell..... Quincy, you know my history pretty well and yes, I've tried to make it work for a long time, but lately I've been pounding my head against a brick wall and it was starting to really hurt! I felt bad leaving him while he's still recovering, but it was so bad..... I can't even put it in words.... Red, Fatboyslim~ you guys are awesome and always there when I need a boost!!!
Loneylane... We've got to get together.. now I have more time available.... Sweat Peas sometime soon perhaps????? :)
And, To all the other replys here... I can't thank you all enough for reaching out and sharing your thoughts and wishes... they mean more to me than I can express right now and just know that I'm doing a bit better now that I know that I can stay here as I really like it here! There is no TV, and NO Internet connection so I had to buy one of those wireless network cards and it seems to work pretty well even though I'm out in the country.
Thank you all again SO MUCH~~
