Hello friends

well the time has come....

after 9 years here

I will be leaving now

I am getting kicked out of my house tomorrow and I will be going to prison for 5 years because I chose to drink and drive though I don't remember it at all

never thought I would be homeless and about to go to prison for violation of probation but it's happening....

I will be living in the woods till my court date on the 30th then probably jail after that....

I will surely miss you all

but Susan will keep you up  on how i am...(SEA) if you want to keep in touch

Dixie, I was hoping that, at the very worst, you would get into one of the shelters that you mentioned.  I was hoping for an email from you tonight, but I really do understand all the pressures, time and everything else.  I am still praying for you and won't stop.  Don't give up hoping and praying - perhaps your court case on the 30th will go better than you think.  

Lots and lots of love and hugs
- Owl

Dixie,
Just don't forget it is never too late to change. Sometimes our hardest experiences are what we need to make us who we want to be. God has a way of resolving all challenges. Though he doesn't absolve us of accountability. So I pray you find the strength to become the woman you want to be and to endure whatever comes your way. Peace and love dear friend.

Dear Dixie,

I will miss you lots.  You are often in my thoughts and I'll be looking for updates about you.

I can only imagine how scarey this time is for you.  You can handle anything.  Why?  Because you are Dixie.  Poetry lives inside you.

I am holding you close in my thoughts.

Prison may keep you in, but it doesn't keep God out.  May Jesus be your constant companion throughout your ordeal.

God bless,

Dixie~~  I am so sad for you.  I know you've been fighting a hard battle, and I am so sorry it's come to this.  If and when you feel the good Lord tugging on your sleeve, would you perhaps think about reading a book by Anne Lamott, called "Traveling Mercies".  She has a wonderful grasp on her faith and doesn't take herself or her spirituality too seriously.  She has overcome some life threatening/altering addictions and has made a success of herself.  She will make you laugh and cry in the same breath. For example, at one point she needs to get out of a situation and so she goes to the ladies room to pray, then writes a chapter about God being in the bathroom.  She is probably the best author I have ever read.  One reason being that I have longed for a relationship with God for some time, and  yet I wasn't about to jump off the deep end for fear of failing.  I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't even know how to pray for goodness sakes.  But like she says, you can pray anywhere, any time, any way you like.  She writes about a good friend who is very religious and goes on to mention that she calls God "Howard" as in howard be thy name.  She had me in stitches I tell you.  Oh Dixie, I wish I had the words to console you.  You will be dearly missed and I will think of you often, and yes I'm going to pray for you too.

Be well and please take good care.
Many hugs to you, Dixie~

thank you all for your prayers and thoughts

you have all made me just cry and smile at the same time here

hopefully I will be able to get rehab instead of jail but who knows? I have messed up so bad and chances do run out. I can't really afford a laywer so I'm stuck with what i get.

Never in a million years did I think I would be in this position but yaknow, I will be back. It may take a couple years but yes God has a plan. I keep that faith.

Thank you all for the love here. I will keep it with me always.

((((Dixie)))) wherever you are, the energy of love will surround you and you will be kept in heartprayers.
May the Angels walk with you through this dark tunnel and guide you into the light again quickly. May you lack nothing and be aware of the fact that this is a lesson to learn and you will share it with others too.
Sending you all my love and big hugs.
Keeping in touch with Susan is fine.

Dixie...

I am so sorry to hear of your continuing troubles!

...Though not facing prison, I just got 'downsized' again (which has become rather habitual).  At my age, being able to 'reinvent myself' for the vanishing 'job market' (or being able to eat and 'pay the bills') is an unlikely scenario... so I have a small sense of your circumstances...

such a 'lovely'  "Runaway American Dream" that unconscionably victimizes so many of us 'little people'

I hope there is a major positive 'turnaround' in your future!

Oh, hon... I can't tell you I know what you're going through... I can only tell  you that there's a place in my heart that's all yours... and always will be.

I've been trying to fight my way out of my own homeless situation and know how quickly our lives can crumble around us. I also know your strength and know you'll put yourself back together... no matter how jumbled the pieces may now appear.

My prayers are with you, my friend.

Please send her love, hugs and SMILES
