Many of you know that I have had an amazing year. I am really not one to brag or boast so I really hesitated about putting these videos on here. However, after giving it much thought I decided that I would be doing Him a disservice if I didn’t tell you about an answer to a prayer. A few years ago student loans were kicking in, our oldest daughter was starting college and we knew that our middle daughter would be starting just two years later. I knew that we were already in the red every month and I didn’t know how I would continue to “juggle” the bills. I began fervently praying every night, “Lord, if you will show me the way, I will do the work.” I really had no idea what that meant. Extra teaching at our community college? tutoring?
A few months later my friend and coworker, Lisa told me about TPT. I had never heard of TPT so she sent me the link and I signed up. I slowly began adding things to my store and the first year I made $300. and I was pretty happy with that. Would it help with my mounting bills? No, not really but it was a start. I kept putting in the work that I told God I would do and some of you know the rest of the story. He showed up and showed out in a BIG way.
Thank You for What You’ve
This is my sweet
baby brother, J.R. He was born when I was twelve years old and I LOVE, LOVE,
LOVE him! 🙂
When he was
only 13 years old he was injured in an accident. The accident left him
a quadriplegic. He can’t speak and he has no control over his muscles. He
communicates with us by moving his eyes. He looks up for yes and he looks down
for no. But mostly he just Smiles and he brings joy to us every minute that we
are around him. For many years he has been pretty much stuck at home because of
no way to get around. Medical transport will pick him up and take him back and
forth to the Dr. but that’s it. Until now…. because of YOU and your support
of me on Teachers Pay Teachers I was able to take part of my earnings and buy a
handicap accessible van. His
whole life has taken on new meaning. Now my mother can take him to the mall, to the
movies, to the park, all the little places that we take for granted. All
because of each and every one of you. I can’t thank you enough. The smile on
his face as we took him out on his first outing is priceless. Thank you so much
for helping me change his life!
