Thank you sincerely for making the trip to Madison for me this past Saturday. My life is turning around faster than I expected; you are part of that chain of successes. I look around this apartment and am amazed and so grateful. I wanted to say two “thank yous” that you will have to pass along for me, #1 God bless the ladies that created the quilts! I can tell that many people spend their time and talent on creating each one. They are cute, they are warm, they are a big hit with the kids. We all have our favorite quilt. #2 God bless the anonymous donor from the Minneapolis area who gave the kids stuffed animals, giant Legos, and other toys. Again the kids have their favorite and I love to see my children happy and playing. In the card that this person sent were kind words, and $50 in cash. Thank you sincerely whoever you are. I can’t say anymore than you have been in our evening prayers each day this week. It was Adayta Axelson who gave me your contact information. Sheworks for the Wisconsin VA with the VORP program. She is one of my managers as I navigate this “adventure.” I met with her today and told her of your program from my first hand experience. Thank you Pete for the time you take driving to each of us. Each piece of furniture here is a reminder of the goodness in the world. Thanks for helping to restore that in me.
