Terrible Week Update

First of all I want to thank all of your for your encouraging comments and prayers!!! If you think leaving a short memo doesn’t help, think again!!! It soooooooo helped me get through the week!

Here’s a few updates on the situation from my last post:

1. The papers: I finished the most important one in 4 days!!! I still have 2 more to write, but the stress of writing them has lifted a bit.

2. My dog: Its been over a week since he disappeared, and I’m finally coming to terms that he probably won’t be back.  I still haven’t put away his food or water bowl, but my heart is healing from the loss.

3. The attack: I’ve actually had a couple of people offer to get me pepper spray and go with me to the police station to request a taser.

4: Hebrew/Arabic: I took my Final for Hebrew and I think I did ok.  It was difficult, but its over!!! Arabic is in a few weeks, so I’m still focusing on that.

This past weekend was a good one for me.  I spent time with friends, relaxed a little, and prepared myself mentally for what coming ahead.  I’m still a bit emotional, but then again…. I’m a GIRL!  That’s our thing, being a bit emotional 😉

Love all of you!!!!

    Much love,

    Good to hear that you had a great weekend. Hanging with friends can definitely boost you up!! And for what it’s worth, over on this side of the pond alot of people are pulling for you. Your doing some great things over there and the smiles/excitement you create among those you work with is priceless!!

    And here is something to ponder: Would a fly without wings be called a “walk”?

    Last time I was here you didn´t have a dog, now you don´t have a dog; you wanted to know if it was right to buy a pepper spray but you didn´t buy the pepper spray,you have the punch spray that seems to be very effective.
