I had sent out several emails to bead stores in about a 200 mile radius of where I was living. I heard back from a nice lady (Jennifer) who owns a bead store in San Luis Obispo, Ca. We had several phone conversations and she asked if I could come up and stay a few days to see how things worked out between us. Alicia and I went up and stayed at her and her husbands home for 4 days. They were so welcoming and accommodating. They even paid for a weekend class for me with a renowned wire working expert. It was so fun to just sit and enjoy some time for me and to not have to think about my problems for a couple of days. So after working with her for a couple of days, we both new it was a perfect fit. She knew I knew what I was doing and that was a great comfort to her. So she came up with a plan to get me up to SLO. Her and husband have given us a place to stay at their home for a few weeks, and are paying our first months rent and deposits for our own place. I was in tears when she told me the plan. I just couldn't believe their kindness. God is amazing!!!!!!!! It still gets even better. Alicia has had 5 interviews now in just the past 3 days. She is super excited.
I have to go for now...will keep you updated.
