(Instead of being a guest writer today I am more of a hostage takeover writer. I wanted to speak to all of Kathy’s friends and this was the best way. I had to twist her arm because she would never ask for help for herself. But if it were someone else needing help she would be the leader of the brigade.)
Hello everyone. I wanted to talk to you about our friend Kathy. As you know her husband is going through some very serious health issues. Kathy is taking care of him full time while dealing with her own health issues. Kathy and Tim are a very loving, sweet and generous couple. I know that if you needed something and she had it she would give it to you. Due to the economy they have had a string of bad luck and misadventures along with the health issues. I wanted to ask you, her friends, for help.
I sent some of you an email about this but I don’t know that all of them were received. Also some of you didn’t have a link back to a site or email for me to contact you. I am asking for any help that you can give to this very special couple. No amount is too small. Anything is very appreciated. Some of you have already responded and it has made a tremendous difference. Kathy was able to purchase a blood pressure device that Tim’s doctor said was a must have. That is so wonderful to me. It fills my heart with love for people that care about others. Everyone is having harder times these days so that makes it that much more meaningful.
I have a PayPal Donation button on both of my blogs. It is labeled “Donations for Kathy” and is on the right sidebar. The donations received go directly into Kathy’s PayPal account. Even the smallest amounts can make a big difference. Reposting or linking to this will also be a big help. There are posts on both about this named “Helping Friends”.
Thank you all so much for your time and for being such great friends to a wonderful person.
