Dear Ellen,You are an amazing inspiration to many people. Twelve days ago someone rear-ended my car while I waited to pull into my driveway. My two boys were with me and luckily other than some back pain and ringing in my right ear, we are ok. My car however, which was a 1997 Ford Taurus with only 82,000 miles on it is totaled. I am waiting to see what the negligent driver's insurance will offer us for it, but know that it certainly won't be enough to replace it. I loved that car, even though my kids thought it was ugly. We are approaching a time where money will be very tight - my husband's student loans are coming due, my daughter needs braces, we need to find a new renter for our house in NJ because we can't afford to sell it... Having to add a car payment on top of that will be very difficult. But I have strong faith and know that anything is possible with the power of prayer and knowing that God hears us. I thank you for all you do for so many people. Please continue to let your light shine.
Dear Ellen,There are so many times after watching your show I would think, gosh she does so much for others in need. I would start to write to you about my story and the needs we have but I would soon delete it because my life is wonderful and I am truly blessed to have what I have and there are so many who are in dire need. Please keep doing what you are doing - it is making the world a better place.
