A Big "Thank You" from Amy

Hello to all.  It's Amy and I want to send out a very heart felt thank you for all the donations we have received .  I was taken completely by surprise when Sylvia told me what she had done and the response her blog post was getting.  I will admit I had a very hard time accepting the fact that total strangers were donating money in honor of our situation.  Asking for help in any form is not something I've ever been good at doing and to ask for money has always been unthinkable.  That has now changed and I have felt the blessings that come from reaching out for help.   The outpouring of generosity has melted my heart and renewed my faith in people.  The kindness of strangers never ceases to amaze.  Not all the donations came from strangers and I'd like to acknowledge those friends of mine who gave in kind.
Even though I have an aggressive form of cancer I really feel blessed to be touched by so many people, not only monetarily but through thoughts and prayers.

In closing I'm happy to say today we became the proud occupants of our very own little "Honeycomb Hideout" and Sylvia will post all the details along with pictures soon.  Again thank you all for blessing our lives and making it possible for us to get a place we can call home.  What a wonderful world it truly is.

Blessings to all of you,



  1. I am so happy to hear you have a Home! Just know that this community of bloggers is full of big hearts with plenty of prayers and well wishes for you both. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Thank you! Yeah, we'll have details soon. It's definitely a change, but we are grateful and there are many things about the new place that are fantastic.

  3. Hi Amy,

    It was my pleasure to donate and help a fellow human being in a tough situation. I'm so happy that you and Sylvia have found a place to call home. Know that I continue to keep you both in my prayers and I hope things keep getting better and better for you. xo

    1. Like Serena said, I was happy to be able to help someone else. Glad to read of your new home and would love to see pics some day. Will keep you in my prayers.

  4. Dear Amy, it is so good to hear from you. I've been a blogger friend of Sylvia's for a while now and I really admire her strength and courage, as I do yours. It is a tough battle to fight and money does make a difference. I learned from going through tough money times myself that there is a grace to accepting help. I never knew this and I think you just learned it. I'm so happy you guys found a place and I will post an update on my blog as some of my follower donated to help you guys out. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as I have for a long time now. You are right this world can be an amazing place.
