Well as you all know we here in Bay county Fl are quickly approaching a month of this hellish experience.
Needless to say it has been a learning experience. Everything from the friends and family that have your back to the friends and family that don’t. Not calling anyone out by name, but I’m sure some reading this get the drift.
I’m not in anyway talking smack, but just putting my thoughts in writing.
While there are people that have stepped up, there are plenty that showed me who I do and do not want to deal with on any level. With that being said I have to say so many great people have been there for us. The kindness has been overwhelming and really humbling.
I’ve had people ask me where they can mail me things from toiletries to money. Oddly enough my old mailbox still stands. I have told several people I appreciate their offer so very much, but don’t trust something being mailed given me not being there to receive it. A heads up folks, looters are a real and present danger. While I couldn’t direct them to where to mail anything I will say I appreciate the thought more than anything. I have some great friends, apparently more than I have ever realized.
The amount of love we have received has been overwhelming. Who’d have thunk it? God knows I’m a jerk at times as Lance is too. Yet the love still comes. I have to give special props to my Carson family. They’re my kids dads family who have went above and beyond to do for me, the hubby and my boys. Even though my ex and I hadn’t been together for a great many years they still looked out. That meant the world to me. I’m grateful for the support system I have, my family and even my ex’s (the Carson’s) family are 💯 team Al.
My Brooklyn friends and family have looked our over and over again. When you have Brooklyn people, you’ll have them for life. I’m a lucky lady to have been raised where I was. #brooklynstrong.
All of that has been wonderful, On another note I have been hanging in there like a hair in a biscuit, as they say in the South. Recently I have had issues time and time again. My right leg is buckling more and more and walking has become a chore more than usual, but it will have to wait. Not complaining because I’m sure I’ll get through as I always do.
With everything going on it’s awfully hard to get proper medical attention, as well as rest when needed. I’m working on it though. I’m sure I’ll get by and come through like the HBIC I’ve always been.
I’m attempting to send out thank you cards as there have been so many I need to thank. I need to thank a whole lot of people for their monetary contributions as well as their thoughts, prayers and emotional support.
Love you all and as I always say, do something nice for someone. It will make a difference as it always does for me. ❤️
