Dreaming of a furnished Christmas!

Michael and I moved back to Baltimore in March 2016.  But our stuff is still in storage in L.A.!  We have not been able to save up enough money to move our belongings back, and we never will be able to save enough.  I am the only one working.  Michael is not well and is not able to work. 

Michael has been ill for quite a while.  Plus we were living in flux. Plus, only one month after we finally rented our own condo, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  Just when we thought life might be getting better for us, a cancer diagnosis.

I suffered from the side effects of the chemo for the better part of this year (yes, that is a wig I’m wearing in our picture!).  Thank God, I am currently in remission, and praying that the cancer won’t come back.

Now we are hoping for a Christmas miracle!  That we might have our stuff back in time to fully celebrate Christmas at home and also celebrate that we are alive to enjoy it!

This year was not the only year full of trials and tribulations for us.  It came on the tail end of many years of trials and tests.  Sometimes we wonder if they will ever end. 

 But we still have faith and we still have hope!

Another important reason for this move is our music equipment.  It, too, is 3,000 miles away along with our other possessions.  We need it back to keep making our music – writing and recording it.  This is who we are.

We would love to have our things back by early December so we can be fully settled in by Christmas.  Please make your donation today so we may…

 Continue to rebuild our lives
Create more music
Continue healing, and
Celebrate Christmas in our own, furnished home!
We will be so very grateful for your help!  It will mean the world to us!
