Today I received all three and then some.
As I said in yesterday’s post (click here to read), a crazy turn of events began with a woman reading my book and wanting to assist me in my battle. Today, that very same woman paid the retainer fee to secure me one of the best attorneys in my county. I have spent the past 30 minutes crying and now I will try and put into words what this means to me.
I equate the past 3.5 years to a 26 mile marathon. I began mile one without an ounce of training and I forgot to eat my pasta dinner the night before the race. I’m not a runner and no one explained how difficult this race would be. I’ve made it to mile 20 but I have walked most of the way. I know that I only have 6 miles to go however, it is uphill and it feels daunting. I am starting to doubt myself and I don’t know how I am going to make it to the end. I am determined and driven so I know I will make it but I may be crawling across the finish line. I may also need a stretcher to carry me to the first aid tent at the end.
That is how I feel. I have come so far in a battle that I wasn’t prepared for. I am not a fighter and this battle has drained me. For the past few weeks, I have been consumed with my upcoming trial on April 10th and 11th. While I have handled all of the hearings up until now on my own, the thought of going to an actual trial against Seth and Vinnie Slaramon feels daunting. Tomorrow I meet with my new attorney in person and I am overflowing with gratitude.
I will never forget this incredible act of kindness. I can’t wait for the opportunity to do the same for someone else someday. Angels are real and one of them has just given me the gift of a lifetime. Thank you. So much. Tina
