ch 13 p 214

The man who opts for revenge should dig two graves. ~ Chinese proverb

Truer words were never spoken.  Too often when we have endured a really bad situation, we get caught up in assigning blaming and focusing on how whoever is at fault should pay restitution.  Women who end up in shelters usually have plenty of people to point a finger out – too often the very person who should have given them love and security in the first place – a spouse or partner.

When my husband of three months decided he was in love with someone else, I was livid.  How dare him!  Once I got past the point of shock, I decided I would write a book.  That seemed like a highly effective way to tell the rest of the world what a jerk he had been.  Then I realized who had chosen to marry him – while knowing things about him that should have sent me running the other direction.  Me.  That’s when I started getting the real lesson from this experience.

I had not gotten very far in the process of collecting ideas for this book when I decided I wanted it to benefit women’s shelters since the women they serve go through a fate much worse than I had endured.  Most of them are not able to support themselves.  Nor do they have the emotional support I found at that time.  If they did, they would not find themselves in that situation, trying to figure out how they are going to survive.

Anyone that runs a shelter can tell you how expensive it is to keep their doors open.  That’s another reason I wanted my book to benefit women’s shelters.  One-half of the purchase price of Too Much Gold to Flush, The Gift of Infidelity goes to the women’s shelter that the purchaser designates.  Click here to purchase a copy and designate which shelter you want to benefit.

The shelters I am featuring this week are in Arkansas.  This link:Arkansas will take you to the page for Arkansas on the Women’s Shelters, a nationwide directory of shelters for women.  On their home page, you can either click on a map, enter a zip code, or scroll down to a list of states to find a location closest to you.
