Where am I?

I know I have been gone along time from here. I have been having a case of the dramas and have not stamped one single thing since the first weekend in October. I am hoping to clear my head and get back around to it this week. Its been a bit of a nightmare and I am ready to get over it.

My god daughter, the daughter of my best friend from high school, has fallen in love with a religious fanatic that talked her into dropping out of college and running away to marry him. He has isolated her from her family and told them not to try to communicate with his wife for a period of 3 months. I guess that's the standard amount of time it takes to brainwash someone. I don't really know. I do know that her mom and step dad are completely devastated, hurt, angry, scared ect... I don't think this is a decision that is good for an 18 year old to make. Especially one that has never had to work a day in her life and barely just got her own bank account. Unfortunately she gets to learn the hard way about life now.

Anyway, there is not much I can do to help her at this point, I am just beeing a supportive friend to her mom and seeing if I can help her in any way what so ever. My goal for the week is to stamp atleast twice. We shall see if I can still do it! *sigh* I gotta get over the blues soon or the guilt over my stamping supplies is going to kill me!

Oh Karen! I'm so sorry to hear this! I am so disappointed with people who use the blanket of religion to abuse people! I'll be praying for you all!
