About Me Below you will find my original profile and I am adding this as an update. No longer homeless I am living in a small trailer house that a dear friend of mine, "Sheila", has been kind enough to lone me. I am working on building up my business and have an indoor booth at Big Daddy's Flea Market in Tool Texas. It is booth number 69 if anyone would like to drop in and visit me! I am selling all kinds of stuff along with my hand made jewelry. Truly God is blessing me!
A wonderful man has also come into my life that is old fashioned and loving. Funny how things just seem to fall into place sometimes. I know this is all an answer to prayers. It is like I was forced to move way out here in the middle of nowhere just to have blessings poured out on my life. I am soooo happy it is unreal. I don't have a telephone yet so I can not get online much but I want you all to know I will be back when I get one! Thank you all for your love and support and God Bless You!
(Original Profile)
I am a very outgoing and friendly person. I love people from all walks of life and I strive to love unconditionally even when I don't always agree with their way of life. I am big hearted and love to give whenever I can. I have taken a while to decide to write this because of where I am in my life at the present time. For all pratical purposes I am homeless. If it were not for loving friends I would be without a roof over my head. It is not a good feeling to feel like you are using people. I do understand why some choose being homeless over asking a friend for help. I also understand that some people just don't have the kind of friends that can or will help them when they are down. I thank God that over the years I have nurtured some true friends and even true friends are sorely tried by these type of circumstances. If I could afford a dependable car, one that doesn't break down constantly, I am sure I could get on my feet again. I lived in the same house for about 12 years and now find myself bouncing from place to place with my little dog isn't easy! LOL... Got to keep my sense of humor though! Maybe I needed this to help me understand someone else along lifes road. I have been through a lot in my life and I do understand a lot of things and relate to people in many different circumstances. I have noticed that people that are not in my situation think it is so easy to get out of. They say things like...with all your talent it should be easy to find a way to get back on your feet...etc. I am stuck out in the middle of nowhere...Kemp Texas...look it up on the map...with no transportation! You try it! In the past month or two I have been picked up by the police no less than 4 times trying to hitch hike where I need to go. They frown on hitch hiking but I don't know what else to do! People get tired of my asking them to take me here and there and I have no other way to go! lol
It is truly frustrating to say the least. My internet access is severely limited right now or I would try to sell jewelry online more. Am going to do some more of that anyway as I get the chance. Hope to be listing some things for sell here soon. Look at my gallery and you will see some of my work.
Anyway...I thought I had better put something in the section so that others would know a little more about me. How can a person say they are my friend if they know nothing about me. I am truly greatful for each and everyone of you. This place has been a blessing to me. I hope to get to know some of you better and pray for blessings in each and every life that I touch on Care2. If you would like to know a little bit more about me ...I have a web site on geocities...that is old but I can't edit it because it got lost in their change over to yahoo...but you can look at what is there until I get another site up ..hopefully soon! I lost my domain name because I didn't have the money to renew it. Oh if you look at this has music so if you don't want to listen to it please turn your sound off! lol It does get irritating...won't ever make a site with music that plays on an endless loop again!
