    I wasn't sure if I Should thank Andie on the forums for what she has done. I thanked her privately and I don't know if she wanted her generosity to be private. But something inside me tells me that our Swirly Sisters should know the amazing and kind hearted deed that Andie has done.

    I didn't get a bill for my Feb kit. Which was a good thing because I honestly didn't have the money. I emailed Krissy and asked her if she could send me an invoice because I didn't have enough money on my credit card to cover it. She sent me back an email saying that there was no need because one of my Swirly Sisters paid for my kit this month and to have a happy Thursday.
    I sat there in shock!

    I normally do not air my problems in public. But this once, I am.

    For the past few months my husband and I have been struggling financially. We had to install a new Electrical Panel, then a few weeks before Christmas our heating system stopped working and we had to pay 4500 for a new one, property taxes came due, and to add to that I have been having so many medical problems our medical bills have went thru the roof. I have never been one to say.. oh whoaa is me… I usually try to have a positive attitude and be thankful for what I have. Everyone has rough times at times in their life and I try to look at things and think this too shall pass.
    But on this particular day I was so down in the dumps. I had just finished going over the budget with my husband trying to determine who we could not pay this pay period. Our savings have went from (if something happened we'd be ok) to we have none. I have offered to stop my kits until we get caught up but my husband will not hear of it. He says that if I'm playing my scrap room I'm not thinking of my health problems and there is no way he will have that taken away from me.

    When I got that email from Krissy it touched my heart and I just sat here at my computer and cried. I of course asked Krissy who did this. And when she told me I immediately sent Andi a pm and thanked her. I told her that I did not know how in the world she knew I was having problems.

    She told me that she didn't know how to explain it but God told her to do it and she did.

    This kit will be a very special kit. One that has touched my heart and made me stop and think of how much good there is our little scrappy world. For a Swirly Sister to just give as Andie has done is unheard of in this day and time.

    Andie.. when ever I look at something that comes in this kit I will always remember the day you touched my heart and I will always remember how very kind hearted you are.

    Our financial problems will be ok soon. In March when my husband gets his yearly bonus we will be able to catch up and actually put a little back in our savings. Thank goodness! And at this time, I plan to pay Andies kindness forward to some other swirly sister who may be needing a hand.

    Again Andie, I want to thank you for what you have done and I hope you aren't upset at me for posting this. I just had to let all our sisters know of your kindness and to share with them this amazing side of you. You are an example to us all.
    Thank you so very much!

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                    Oh Andi what a very special thing to do. It really is amazing how much such little things like this make such a huge impact on lives, especially when you're bogged down with medical issues too.
                    And Barbara i wish you all the very best that you begin to see a light from all your troubles – financial on top of medical stress can be so very draining.

                        In this day and age where everywhere you tu there is nothing but who is out for themselves it is wonderful to hear that someone (our dear Andie) has done something thoughtul for someone else.

                        God bless Andie
                        God bless Barbara and I pray your issues will be resolved soon
