Woo hoo...Happy, Happy Day!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

For those of you who have followed my blogs, we got the call we have been waiting for late last night. Our attorney called and said that the charges against us were unfounded and without merit! We were found innocent of all charges. So the 2 year torture is finally over. All the lies and trouble they tried to cause us are over with. I am so very thankful that it is finally over. It is a shame that those who blatantly lied are not held for libel here in Mexico. Our attorney will be filing a law suit on our behalf to recover the money that we have spent on this over the 2 years and feels very good that we will win that case. And at least that law suit we don't have to do as much. If we do get money back for all we went through, we will be giving some of that to Madre Maria for the children. She was so helpful to us during this process.
So now my sparks friends, you are no longer associating with a "criminal" here on sparks....I am an innocent woman ;)! Thanks so much to all of you who have listened to me whine about the injustice of all of this and for your on going support. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me! I am so thankful that throughout this trying time I was able to eat healthy and maintain my weight. I weighed in this morning right around goal of 109.5. I know I would not have made it many times without all of your support.
Many thanks.
I am a free woman!

Oh, and the one thing I wanted to share was one of the lies that we just found out they were saying about us and that is that my DH would go outside when ever anyone came to the property with a gun and threatened people. Oh my goodness, just can't believe how they can simply lie. We don't have a gun and we certainly wouldn't threaten anyone, in fact when people visited and I was out walking the dogs I extended good cheer as I always do. I have always been friendly especially if someone is going to be a new neighbor. Hello!!!!

Anyway, today will be a great day!
Hope you all have a great day as well.

    Congratulations. That is wonderful that the court
    finally came through for you. Too bad you had to go
    through all that torture though. I would love to have
    you as a neighbour. A free woman at last. I hope your
    atorney can recover some money for you so that you
    can help the orphanage and Madre Maria. You are so
    kind Sallie - how can anybody doubt your goodness.
    Here's to a healthy and HAPPY 2013. emoticon

    Sallie Sallie oh my how great our Lord is. Much prayer has gone into this situation from a lot of people.praise be to God!! When they are shooting the fire crackers off you need to ask them to blast off a real good one in celebration of this.The one main thing Sallie you held onto is you would not allow those vipers to take your healthy eating & work outs away from you. You are even thinking of others when you said about sharing any money you acquire to sister Madre Maria to the children, what a kind gentle person you are.You taught us through all your adversity that we must still hold on to our values & what is important to us & never let go of them. Thank you Sallie for this lesson

    This news came in time for you to enjoy a New Year's celebration (which probably means more rocket noise, huh?!)!! Am soooo glad this was processed and cleared so quickly! And for the record, I never considered you a criminal, just an unjustly accused neighbor of one!! Glad your attorney is on top of things and hopefully the expense money will be restored; how wonderful you'll turn this frustration into a benefit for those children, too!!

    p.s. - Am sitting here watching the snow fall for the fourth hour, thinking of the foot that fell a day ago and how nice and sunny/warm your view outside your window is right now! How many more days until summer??? :)

    Such great news! Congratulations. Now you will be able to go see those lovely grandchildren and have their delayed Christmas activities. What good memories those will be!

    Congratulations! The only thing I am surprised about is that you got an answer so quickly. Always better to finish unpleasant business and start the New Year with fewer worries.
    Great job on the weight maintenance.

    Woo HOO! so happy for you. I hope you win your law suit as well.

    You know, it is hard for me to understand as well how someone can tell blatant lies about us! Sweet vindication!

    Sending wishes for a happy New Year filled w/abundance and blessings.

    So happy for you that it is over! Those people do need to pay for what they have done. I hope that part goes well also! But now you can relax and enjoy life without that hanging over your head!
