A New Day !!!!!!

We received a phone call last night from a woman down the road from us...
she had heard about our situation in needing a home for Jo,
and she came forward to let us know that she wanted to rent out her home to her!
She was Hannah's girl scout leader, and is a wonderful woman in our community.
so we hopped in the car, went to get Jo to tell her the Good News and drove to the new home...
wouldn't you know, it just happens to be 3 doors down from Felicia? hahaha!!!!
the house needs TLC desperately...but is liveable.
I'm going to go to the Habitat store
for some paint & basics because Jo just can't afford anything right now...
I'm hoping to find her a washer/dryer and furniture
through one of our thrift shops
(Almost Home thrift shop in Colleen)...
since being diagnosed terminal, Jo lost her house and everything that was of value had to be sold off to pay for medical bills......
she's also lost her teeth, her hair and a percentage of her hope...
(especially when this crazy landlady said to get out...)

I'm hoping this new house will bring some peace to her...
...it will be a relief to get Jo into the house,
where she can at least feel safe at night & get the rest she needs...
we have much work ahead, but with positive thoughts and the support and help from others,
I know things will work out fine...
they always seem to...
Jo (and I!) thank everyone here for your kind words, thoughts and actions,...
from the bottom, top, and sides of our weary little hearts!!!
THANK YOU

I am so glad to hear the good news. Jo deserves to enjoy being with her sister and family and this will be so much better than dealing with that other mean, nosey old bat. Everything will be alright now and I'm so glad it's working out. I expect the angels fight on your side Lori. Take care and have a good Easter.

I am so pleased, I have been wondering all day since I read your previous post. I am delighted that something much better turned up, even though you have lots of work to do on it. I'm sure Jo will be much happier now.
