To everything there is a reason...

Personal struggles mean great things are coming and the struggles are to prepare you to deal with them....
 
When the neighbor thing happened, I had to lean on faith that this was true. A lot of faith, lol. Because the worst part of it was dealing with the PTSD issues of my childhood. And even though I felt beat up with it (because I REALLY didn't want to deal with it or even go there), I did learn a lot and grew from the experience - the biggest part of which is that the issues dropped me emotionally to a level where I feel grounded, so grounded in fact that the only place I have to go now is UP. And when I felt the healing taking place last weekend, I also realized that I had this HUGE inner space to begin creating a life that I WANT, without restrictions....
And just to remind me how important this place is, God sent along another minor neighbor incident – I got a message from his attorney yesterday stating that he wanted to cut down my sunflowers because they were leaning over my fence – right after I went out there to find out why my sunflowers were leaning over my fence and discovered “someone” had WIRED them to do so. So I removed the wire, tied them back with string - discovered the string had been removed/broken when I got home 4 hours later, so went out and got ROPE and TENT STAKES and in the DARK last night fixed the problem so I could see if any more tampering has been done, and then wrote a letter to the attorney (with a copy to the judge) stating that he WAS NOT to do any cutting or further tampering and that I would handle any harvesting myself (ok, I wrote it in a much firmer yet more diplomatic way, lol). AND not only that, his attorney's office also said plans for the fence were being sent to me to look over for approval – the fence that was already being constructed, mind you... So I added that in as well... and stated that my current concern was that they allowed for enough room for people to squeeze in between the posts and my fence when they installed the panels and if that isn't a problem, then the location is fine and I will contact them as soon as I receive the plans....
 Yeah.... the lesson is all about standing up for myself (Quote of the day.... “Just keep moving forward and don't give a shit what anyone else thinks... DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO FOR YOU!”), and then this morning, GREAT THINGS began to happen...
My aunt, the trustee, emailed us that the inheritance distribution is ready to begin NOW.... and then went on to say that we HAD to open a brokerage account with the bank that I have had FRAUD problems with in the past where I got ripped off during my divorce when they falsified documents. HERE WE GO.... the importance of standing up for myself and for networking... So today, I'm contacting a friend who is a financial planner in an investment firm....Ooops, phone just rang.... meeting with her on September 4th and ALREADY have the information I was looking for regarding the fact that I DO NOT have to open an account with that bank and if I don't get all the answers I need, I can also contact my sister – a tax attorney. This is gonna be VERY interesting.
 
LATER!
