Thank you

First of all I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you for the donation that came in. Words can't describe how much it meant to me. I am trying really hard to stay out of a funk through this, and that totally helped!

I keep on getting asked if there is any way to donate anonymously, I just got off the phone with paypal and I'm sorry to say that there isn't. But I can tell you this, I am the only one who see it. And I can promise you that I take what people email me very seriously and very confidently.

My prayer is that it is fixed and back on the road by Monday when I have to drive Gav. to school, and speech, and footbal and...........


  1. The problem is that PayPal will show up on our credit card statements and our spouse might pay the credit card bill and ask about the charge. Some of us are not fully in recovery yet and/or don't have our spouse's support and/or are doing this in secret because our drinking has been in secret. Some of us might feel this is a shameful affliction or at least our spouse does, who might see the credit card bill.

    Do you have a friend nearby with a P. O. box that you trust 100% who would let you publish the post office box address? I would send some cash that way, with a code word or phrase in there, which I would ask that you mention in a post the day you received it.

    I hate this secrecy, but it's part of the package of this affliction. I'm making progress because of you, Emily, and will help if I can figure out how. I'll bet others would, too.

  2. You are very welcome, I am always happy to help. Paying it forward has been a big part of my life lately, so many have helped me along the way. Happy car repairs!

  3. Thank you sooo much GucciGirl! You Rock!

    And anonymous, thank you for sharing that, I never looked at it that way, but I totally get it. A P.O box is a great idea. I would love to have a place where people would feel comfortable sending me not only donations, but letters and such. I will see what I can do. Xo, em

  4. If I added up all the dollars I HAVEN'T spent on alcohol since following your blog, I'd have quite a sum to send...
