Note From Leslie
It's been forever. I keep thinking about writing an update, but am so sad that I am unable to do more for my families and for Hancock County that I just cry and procrastinate.
While everyone's health around here has stabilized, the monetary situation has not. I'm having to put all of my financial assets toward the house or mediations for all 3 of us.
I'm fortunate enough that this summer allowed me to garden, saving us about $1000 in food for the year, and more weather-proofing of the house, which is saving us another $1000 in reduced utilities, but I have so much more to do and am barely keeping my head above water.
I continue to help 2 families as I am able, but just can't do any more than that. I had to turn away clothes and toys because I can't afford shipping. I feel awful about that!
I continue to think about everyone, and pray they are ok, and ask forgiveness for not being able to do more. It's just been one of those lives. LOL I know it's only been about 20 months, but it certainly feels more like a life-time.
I do continue to get emails from folks, and will always answer them or direct them to the correct resource. So I know you're all out there!
Know I'm here and I'm still doing all that I can.
