Update on my mom



Hi everyone! I received the most amazing blessing today. Some wonderful friends at Etsy put together a fundraiser in my honor, to try to get money for me to go see my mom again since she was diagnosed with terminal illness. I had no idea this was going on until halfway through and I didn't know the whole thing just that some kind folks were offering up percentages of their sales to donate to this fundraiser. This morning I got the money, and I was floored by the generosity of fellow Etsians, some I know and some I do not know. I can now plan to see my mom several times and not have to worry about the financial part. I am going to see her in two weeks, for Labor Day weekend which is when my dad's birthday is. She was SO excited when I told her I could definitely come! And I told her of my Etsy friends and their kind generosity and she was so touched and happy that I can come more than once. Just making my sweet Mommy so happy was the best feeling, and knowing that I am loved by my Etsy friends is amazing too. I want to thank ALL of you who donated time and money to this, and know that God is good. I pray He returns the blessing to you over and over. This made my day the best day yet since hearing the awful news about my wonderful mom. Thank you all so much. I love you all!
