see blogger ask for help. see blogger receive help. see blogger cry.
**** once again, if you are new to my blog or haven't been here in a while, I suggest you read this post to catch up, otherwise you might not have a clue what I'm talking about. ****

I have been nothing but amazed by the generosity of those who have sought to help me on my journey to Israel. I have received yet more orders (from Oleh Girl who ordered several, and an order from an incredibly sweet and enthusiastic Suzi) but have been left speechless by a huge order that came in this morning from someone in San Francisco (can I use your name, Revels?). I... I just don't know what to say. My jaw dropped as I saw the quantity and I thought... holy cow, I'm gonna have to order more! You cleaned me out, and then some!

This couldn't have come at a better time as I was beginning to feel like I was never going to get anywhere near my goal. Some days I feel invincible and confident that this is going to happen, and on other days, like yesterday, I start to wonder if I have bitten off more than I can chew. It's 10 days until I find out how much (if any) financial assistance I will get from the folks at Livnot, which could make or break this trip for me. As June 15th draw nears I am getting more and more nervous about the answer I will get.

I don't know who you are Revels but you, along with the help of everyone else over the past week, have rekindled my belief that I can make this happen if I want it bad enough. It's funny how, just when I am starting to feel down, something or someone comes along and picks me back up. At the risk of sounding melodramatic (and I say this with tears in my eyes!) in a way this is even restoring my faith in humanity, which I thought was long gone.
I hope I don't let you all down.

A thousand thank yous..... I am humbled by your kindness, generosity and support. :'-)
