Beyond blessed today

2012 has been a very rough year for me. I feel like I have accomplished so much this year even though it has been harder than I ever imagined and more than I could handle at times. I have been going to counseling at a women's shelter since shortly after I left my abusive ex earlier this year. They had asked if we needed help with Christmas and to write down 2 things each of the kids wanted. But today when they gave it to me it were THREE ENTIRE BOXES OF FULL OF THINGS!!!!

Toys, clothes, hats, gloves, blankets, pillows, the book set my son wanted that I couldn't afford, and so much more!! I am beyond grateful and feel so blessed right now. I am left speechless by the kindness and generosity of complete stranger. I wish I could hug each one and tell them how truly grateful I am. There gifts will make this Christmas one that will not be forgotten. When they were filling my car with things I couldn't even find the words because of my tears. My counselor told me to take these things and begin a new life for myself and my children.

I can not wait until the day when I can give back and know that someone out there is able to start a new life for themselves and for there children, just as I now have.

You gave back by posting on here. So many of us are coming from abusive relationships and scared to move on. Help to support those ladies when you see them pop up. Yours is a positive story.

Thank you so very much. I hope that I can help other women, I feel a calling to do so. I will continue to provide as much support and encouragement as I can everyday. Thank you again!
