It has been a tough few years, but Sploofus has been one escape for me. My membership was supposed to expire while I was away this past week and I could not renew at this time. My sister has been out of work for 9 months after a terrible accident and she has been working on a degree at UCLA that would lead to an excellent profession she can do despite her disability due to the accident. Since lawsuits are pending, money is short, and we only have each other, I am sending her whatever I can afford each month to help with rent. It was not her fault, but the accident has robbed her of everything. She has worked so hard and handled so many bad situations in the past 5 years that I cannot just sit by and not help her. I will be making a move soon so that my financial responsibilities are less and I can send her more until this is all settled, but there is no resolution in sight yet. I keep hoping for miracles . When I saw her last week for the first time in six years (I had a conference where I was a presenter on the West Coast and was able to take two extra days to visit her) I think we realized just how much we need each other.

So, whoever my guardian angel is that gave me three more months of Sploofusing, Thank you so very much! It was Christmas in July for me to find that my renewal date had changed when I returned.

I am truly sorry for your problems. I am very happy that someone here was kind enough to do that for you. I have always known that this is a great group of people. (for the most part ) I hope that some of your travails ease and that you have a fabulous time sploofing. Marsha

What a very moving story. I'm so sorry to hear of your sister's accident and subsequent disability, but it's wonderful that she'll be able to embark on a new profession after completing her studies.

You're an inspiration, Bluesky, with your love, sacrifice and support for your sister.

Enjoy your gift of Platinum! You're part of what makes Sploofus special!

I'm really sorry to hear about your sister, Patty, and wish the two of you didn't have to go through it. I wish you both the best, and am glad you are going to be able to stay on the Island!

What a great testimony to the power of sisters! Sounds like you have and are a great one! Thanks for sharing your story - I will be thinking of you and your situation and sending good positive energy your way. And thanks to your mysterious donor - so glad that you're able to have a break from everything once in a while.

Hey Patty, you'd have done the same for me. Sorry, I've been working nonstop - will try to give you a call tomorrow night.

I wish you and your sister all the best, and hope that all will turn out well.

That's a very heartwarming gesture from a sploofuser; so it's great that you'll continue at full membership ---and a big thank you to your "angel".

So sorry for your troubles, hoping that other Sploofusers good thoughts will at least lighten your spirits. Happy also you got to visit your sister in person, it must have been wonderful for you both.

How can anyone say we've lost our community when Bluesky (Patty) has received this gift? What a lovely gesture. Way to go, Alice.

If there are angels Bluesky, form the contents of your message, you must surely be one of them! Best of luck to you and your sister.
