I've been sitting here staring at the "say something about this" space that you get when you go to share something. There are no words to describe how I feel about what my friend and editor is going through right now. I've shared her story many times and keep hoping that it was passed on enough times that some helped.
If I had a passport and thought my vehicle could survive a 14 hr (1 way) drive - I'd be posting this on the side of the road somewhere on my way to go get her and her husband and bring them back here. I don't have much, but I would gladly share all that I do. I borrowed money to send to her a few weeks ago, and once I pay that back will borrow more if I have to. I have no problem "going without" trivial things to help her. It's been hot and humid here lately - but I'm able to go inside and get out of the heat... I have a bed to sleep in and a roof over my head... I can take a shower, do my laundry or drink as much water as I want... All of these are luxuries to her and her husband currently. (I'm trying VERY hard not to rant because it won't help in any way.)
My social media accounts say I have 1000+ followers - it is my hope that some of those will take a second of time and SHARE this or take five minutes and send a few dollars to her - sacrifice that second trip to get a chiller, iced coffee or frappuccino and send the money to help someone have shelter from the elements. IF you think that little bit won't help, you're wrong- every bit helps.
