Day 231 In the Pursuit of Love (Lottery)

IF WE WON THE LOTTERY– I DON’T THINK IT WOULD CHANGE US– OR OUR HABITS– EITHER–BUT IT WOULD ALLOW US TO BE ABLE TO HELP MORE PEOPLE IN OTHER WAYS THEN WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO IN THE PAST– AND I KNOW FROM HELPING SOME PEOPLE IN OUR PAST WE WERE “ENABLERS”– –& SO I FEEL SOMETIMES WHEN WE DO HELP– WE HAVE ENABLED OTHERS TO NOT HAVE TO DO THINGS ON THEIR OWN–OR GO WITHOUT LIKE WE DID- SO WE COULD HELP THEM & SOME JUST DID NOTHING BUT EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO PAY THEIR BILLS– & WAIT TO INHERIT WHAT OTHERS WOULD LEAVE TO THEM!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
