In the name of love....

What will you do in the name of love? Today we are secretly giving my sister an in the name of love benefit. She is none the wiser. She hasn't a clue what is going on. My sister, recently is going through a nasty divorce and was forced to move from her home.... She went thru some horrible domestic issues with her soon to ex husband and is still suffering from all of his abuse....

She just moved into a smaller townhome with her two children and is now in danger of losing her place again, because her dumb ass ex doesn't pay child support and when he finally decided to pay her the back pay, the check bounced. My sister, being the trusting person she is, didn't wait for the funds to clear and wrote out checks for her utilities and rent...wouldn't you know it all cleared but the rent, because his check bounced! Now she is behind two months in rent, and recently had to go to court, she now has to come up with 4,500 dollars before August 31st, my sister is a hard worker and has already came up with more than half of the money, which means no money for the children.

I know this is harsh word, but I HATE her husband for all he has done to my family. The only good thing that came out of the marriage were my niece and nephew Aaron and Aaliyah!

We are having family and friends over at my moms, they are going to reach into their pockets and give what they can, I myself am giving 200 bucks, that I really don't have, but anything for my sister. I know if the tables were turned she would surely do it for me!


On a lighter note, everyone was asking how my son's first day of school went and it went great. He did say, he had a hard time opening his locker and finding classes, but that was to be expected. He is such a little booger, he came home with phone numbers alreay, one from an upperclassman too, he bragged. I told him school is all about learning, and not learning about girls.....LOL TEENAGERS!


Until next time....

That is really sweet to do that for your sister. Some men can be such butts. I will keep her in my prayers that God sees her through this time. Her DH will get his in the end. Do what you can for her...

Peace and Blessings
