cbb.. You have given so freely and unselfishly to all the monkeys with your gifts of such beautiful avatars and the time you have spent with them must have been incredible.  Your love for your monkey family shines through each avatar which has been so carefully chosen to suit each personality and now it is our turn to give you our love and support in this difficult time.  We are a family as you say and I feel honoured to be part of such a wonderful caring group of people.
My prayers are with you and I will be here at any time you may wish to talk or just need to know there is another friend thinking of you.

I posted this little story in the NH thread but thought I would bring it over here as it may help some who post and read here.  God bless all who read it and I hope they gain inspiration and comfort from the words.  There is a wonderful message for us all in this story :  God knows best.


THE BUTTERFLY

25 January 2007 | 07:31:27

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily. But it had a swollen body and small, shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch the butterfly because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would enlarge and expand to be able to support the body, which would contract in time. Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a swollen body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly.

What the man, in his kindness and haste, did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening were God's way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

Oh CBB, my heart aches for you. You do have family here with the Monkeys.

Your identity is not defined by the ex. You are a whole person.

Stay strong. God will bring you through this in the way he feels is right for you at this time. Hugs.

oh CBB-

I wish we were there to surround you and help to keep you calm and whole. It is so unfair when our ex's impact our lives and our hearts, then as if that isn't enough then it's our economic survival. You must feel as if the rug has been ripped beneath you right now, I will pray for God to surround you and comfort you. I am sending you my support and encouragement to know you can't change all of this, to know what you can control and focus on that solely. We are here for you, we do care and we will stand by you.

God bless you.


Oh none.........I just took a minute to check this thread and am sitting here with tears streaming. Thank you for taking time to leave me a note. You've touched my heart. I feel it, none! You've given me a gift this day. It means everything to me!
I gotta go straighten my face up and push forward. I've been trying hard to gather the information I was told to produce for the OIG. The office has scary authority, and tell you up front that they are "educating" themselves for the purpose of dismissing complaints, levying or reclaiming funds, or discovering grounds for criminal charges: against ME! It's intimidation tactics, and the guy is very good at it!
OK. I can do this. None, I can't tell you what your sentiments mean to me. We've stood together for a while now in those "Heavenly Places" and you've just squeezed my hand that's held yours while you've been in such a painful place. I'm squeezing yours back!


CBB-

be strong and simply don't allow him to make you react, for you know you have done nothing criminal and yes it is a tactic and a nasty one. Deep breaths and move through the motions repeating to that official that you will cooperate for you know you have done nothing wrong. If he sees your quiet determination he may rethink his tactics. If not just know you will endure.

I am holding your hand and many hugs too, I know God will guide you. You are strong and you are deserving of good things, remind yourself of this and don't lose hope.

Sam and Tibro: Thanks you so much for the kind words and encouragement! I'm keeping them as my "shield of armour"! It's the weekend, and I'm actually able to breath. I don't think that would have been possible without you guys! Hugging you back!!!!!

If ever I needed a prayer, it is now, for Cynthia Ireland and Marc Jaconski and their baby boy who was born two months early at 3 1/2 lbs. Cynthia is fine and lives near Cedars Sinai where she gave birth. She is spending all her days and nights sleeping near the baby and her mother drives back and forth every day from Santa Barbara. Her parents sent a beautiful shower announcement and I called today up to Santa Barbara to RSVP. I spoke to her father who told me the baby shower is on hold because the baby came two months early and they are waiting to see if the baby recovers.

You have been interested in my adventures and I can tell you a short story but it belongs here and not in the adventure thread.

My husband's mother was Muriel (3 children) and her sister was Gladys (9 children). Muriel died and my husband Jack died in 1986 from AIDs. They are all buried in a cemetery in Duarte. I visit them now and then, and bring flowers, a spray bottle of Windex and paper towels. I clean the markers, I bring a scissors to trim the grass, etc. Gladys died last September and the service was in Santa Barbara.

When I met my husband (1962), I was introduced to the children of Gladys, all nine of them. The years pared down the relationships so that I am friends with two of Gladys' children ... Barbara and Mary. Barbara is my first cousin through marriage. She has three daughters ... Mary, Kathy and Cynthia.

Have any of you heard of Kathy Ireland? If you have, I want you to know that Cynthia (who had the baby two months early) is Kathy's sister.

Please pray with me that Cynthia's baby survives and becomes a normal child.

Thank you. Please pray for the survival of Elijah John Irelend.

Angie, cuz, and none: You all are like a cool drink of water in a parched land, to me! Your encouragement is just so uplifting! I don't know how to say thank you, but to know that I've been thought of today with good will and wishes takes my breath away. I wish I could return to you the comfort I've felt from your concern. Being alone is new and foreign to me, and you've taken that away during a really hard time. How do I say thanks for a gift like that?
I miss my family more than even my heart can put words to. Today, I've felt I have one. I love you.


Love yah too Susan!   and TY. I saw the St pattys day avi you made me. I have it saved.. and didnt get to TY before. Im  behind anymore!
hugs to you sweety..

CBB

There are and have been women in your situation.  You are not alone.  Have you tried contacting a Women's Bureau??  There are attornies with reasonable fees to assist women  in crisis.  There is more than one kind of abuse.  Perhaps they could give you the names of a couple attornies.  I don't want to diminish the power of prayer (and you have mine), but your case sounds a little complex.

Louise, you and the baby and family are in my thoughts and prayers!

Justins, What a wonderful "mind's eye" vision. I will remember that, and thank you! I feel the fear trying to rise as Monday rolls around, and your timing is perfect! BTW, check out your St Pat's avi.  Wink

Buckeye, It's good advice. I'm not aware of anything quite like that, but will do some checking. Healthcare is such a specialized legal field and there are so many regs you're subject to: Medicaid, Rural Health, Medicare, OIG, DHS, and each has manuals of regs 5 inches thick. I have a manager of 3 other Rural Health Clinics as part time just in an effort to keep me in compliancy. Since I'm not positive what exactly the OIG is looking for, and they won't tell me, I suspect the reason they are asking for such a wide array of stuff: from original patient charts to tax and income documents, to employment agreements, is to fish for anything that could possibly tie in with my ex's business. He is in healthcare as well and owes back a lot of money to Medicare, and is going under. There's implications for me there as well. The divorce dictated he would continue payments on my car and house, but he's already been unable to make those for 2 months.
It would require an attorney very familiar with both healthcare issues and maybe tax and family law as well. I won't let it go any further without representation. I've produced everything they've asked for, and been as cooperative as I possibly can, but atty's that deal with gov'mt issues are highly specialized and highly paid. The retainer alone would close my doors, and I'm praying that they'll look at what I've given and let go. If not, I have to take steps to be represented reguardless of the outcome. My son was injured playing football for Western Ky and the surgeon who did the repairs said he will not play again. The burden of college is now mine instead of a scholorship, and the financial ruin will be accomplished whether they find anything or not.
I'm not without hope. To the very best of my knowledge, everything is as it should be, and I've made a diligent effort to assure that. It's a new business and I'm pleased to be operating in the black at all, but can say with surety that no one could possibly look at my own income from it at this point, and make a case that I'm in any way taking advantage or "milking" anything!
I'm sorry, you didn't ask for all that detail! I talk when I'm nervous!  Laughing
Thank you for your concern and good advice. I know I can't let it go much further without legal help. Thank you for your prayers that it won't get that far!

None, Mrs. Red, and Sleuth: I just don't know how to say thank you for the words of encouragement. It means so much to me to know I mean enough that others are remembering me with good thoughts and prayers for my well being. I cry every time I come here, but they are warm tears and overflow from my touched heart. I feel like God is reminding me that He has a broader definition of family than I've understood. I love you guys.

CBB - Oh honey!  I haven't checked this thread for a while, and I find that you are hurting.  I know you are at a scary place in your life right now - But you are 100% right - God has you in the palm of his hand - How awesome is that?  Can you think of Anything more powerful?  More trustworthy? More Loving?  I know I can't.  Keep your eyes on that.  He will see you through and you will be all the more stronger for it.  Just keep thinking - This too shall pass.

I will keep you in my prayers!  God is Good! (((((hugs)))))
