Sold! Thank you so very much Rene', mama to four rescue rabbits. Light, love and hugs to you!
I said in my header that this piece was helping Hannah and it is. Things are very hard for everyone around the world. So many people are suffering. It makes me incredibly sad to see the devastation and disasters, to receive emails from friends dealing with life threatening illness and to read of families unable to pay their bills. While I do my best to stay positive and be happy, I will admit, it gets harder and harder some days.
David and I are truly blessed to have the roof over our heads and food in our bellies. We have worked incredibly hard for everything, but at the same time, it's been a very hard year for us. Actually, a very hard couple of years. We live simply, but job loss, furloughs, trying to start a business, writing a book and now vet bills have wiped us completely out.
I took Hannah, my little dust bunny, to the vet yesterday to discuss treatment strategies. I learned she has a disease called, Pasteurella. Basically, she has a chronic respiratory infection. There is no cure only "management" of the issues. She will eventually die from it but, being the crazy bunny lady I am, I will do whatever it takes to make her life as joyful, happy and safe as possible. After all, I chose to rescue her and give her a forever home. I promised to take care of her and love her no matter what. My vet said to me yesterday, "Pets, especially exotic pets, are a luxury." I agreed. I can give up a lot of things in life, but caring for these innocent, gentle creatures is just part of who I am, a luxury I truly adore.
Hannah's medicine and treatments are now costing me $200.00 a month. This wouldn't be so bad if things weren't they way they are right now. So, I'm not telling you all of this for pity or money. Again, I consider us very blessed every single day. I'm telling you this because it is what it is and you are my friend. I just want you to know that by purchasing my patterns, book, and bidding on this piece, it helps me take care of a precious little bunny who really deserves it.
For that I am forever grateful.
Light, Love and Hugs,
Michelle and the Bunnies
