Whats going on??

Blog Posted:7/12/2010 6:36:00 AM
Hi Members~
Some of you have been kind and asking where I've been on facebook. Well I am in a legal battle with the town because of a spiteful  neighbor. I am in an urban area running a 4-H youth club and I have some live animals. I made it past the first hearing but now I have to get through the zoning board. Which I'm sure you know what they are like in small towns.Needless to say the stress levels are high and I can't think of anything but getting through this. There are many youths involved that I'm fighting for. Now I have a lawyer and a state farm rep I'm working with so this takes up a lot of my energy. I do miss you all and will return to read you wonderful words. Just say a prayer that we will prevail.My next hearing is in August so I am leaving to VT for a short vacation to get away just hubby and I perhaps there I will get inspiration to write! I love you all!

Thanks Kindly,Laura McKenzie

    Dear Laura, I will keep you in my prayers. This situation with your neighbor sounds very stressful. I'm hoping you prevail in court. Have a nice time in Vermont and let us know how things go in August, okay? Love and best wishes, Carolyn

    Sounds to me like what you are trying to do with youth and with animals is a noble cause. WHY would anyone try to stand in your way? I just don't get it. Well, regardless... will be praying for you. Hope the stress doesn't get too high for you. If you have time for a soupmail, I'd love to hear about your project you are working on. Blessings, Amy

    I do hope your vacation will be inspiring for you. I do know how too much stress can bottle up creativity. Wishing you the best always. Good luck in your case, we keep you in my prayers as you fight for a good cause. You've been missed. God Bless, :) Catie
