As I am sure anyone reading this already knows, the Voice(s) of Hope website launched today. I had heard rumors of this and asked Ty earlier in the day whether this was going to happen so I would know how to properly speak of this on my post. He indicated that it might happen, so I waited until I saw the update on my Facebook.
At that point I went to the site right away, verified that our/my story was there, and immediately began texting anyone who I thought might care about it, including our family members and friends who already knew that it was coming soon. I am still surprised by how calm I felt while doing it.
From the 30+ texts I sent out, I only have heard back from about ten of the people. I can’t decide if that is because people are just busy and haven’t had time (although, we’re going on almost 12 hours of people knowing) or whether the message was lost to them, or whether they just don’t understand what it meant.
Either way, I still feel calm and at peace. I am wondering how long it is going to take for some of my friends and extended family to find out. I am a little bit nervous about their reactions, but I know that the Lord has led us to where we are and will lead our steps in the future.
I do want to share my love for my Father, my husband (who, with some other great friends, is currently sharing his wisdom and hope with a “newbie” in our living room), and all our friends and family who have supported us to this point in our lives and am grateful that they ALL will continue to support ME in the future.
