Just so you don't think me dead, let me tell you that I am not. This year promises struggles, but there's light at the end of the tunnel, and that's not a damned train, I'm sure of it!
Mum's back problems lead to her being home-ridden. She can walk about, shuffle there and here, but not for extended periods of time. The bad part is, her arm, the one with ligaments broken, is hurting worse too. The ligaments were cracked last year, so she survived a whole year with absolutely no damn treatment, being sent from one doctor, to another, to another, to another, with no more than promises that this will be done, and that will be done, and so on.
I myself am swinging back and forth. Mostly I just try to hang on teeth and nails onto the gratitude I feel for all of you. Please do stop making commissions for me, you've done your part, and you've done more than most people have for me. I don't deserve this kindness, and yet you gave it to me anyway, so now do rest easy your kind hearts. If you'd care to share the fundraiser page itself tho, please do, I appreciate it. Even more than that, I appreciate sharing my made jewelry / artworks, since I feel less useless when I can give people something in return.
You've spoiled me like a fat little panda with all the wishes, postcards, letters, and even presents during the whole of last month. Some of you even sent me crafting materials, stuff for projects you somehow knew (did you?) I worked on, and since I am buried under translations right now, all I did was pet and love all the beautiful beads, life-giving books, and amazing artwork. You, people, are the last hope of our world, I hope you know that. We may not see elves walk down the street, but this is just as well a fantasy world which would very likely break apart if you wasn't there, if you didn't exist, if you didn't fight every day to be the person that you are.
I should probably tag the whole bunch of you, but I fear I'll misspell the names as I tend to do
So I won't. I do hope you know this is about you tho
