Predatory

This note arrived in the mail. Hand written.

Dear Robb,

Remember how we talked in early December about you
wanting to sell your home?

I'm ready to talk details. Give me a call.
Put this rubberband on your wrist to remind you.

Can't wait to hear from you.

Nick


The note included first names, last names, our address, and misleading information to indicate that Robb had plans to sell our home - plans I know he did not make, plans someone believes I should blindly step into.

Predatory mail. I heard this would happen.

I have little fight left.

***

God, I ask for your hand of justice to deal with a man who preys upon a widow and her children. Please.

My husband, Dan and I have been following your blog for a couple of weeks, now. We are praying for you and would love to be of help in any way possible. We are also Colorado residents...please let us know if we can be of assistance to you in any capacity. We are appalled that someone would even consider writing that note. Please know that we are praying for you and your sweet boys.

Your words are much nicer than the ones I just prayed.
Continue to pray for you and your sweet boys.

I suppose I am glad that you were warned about things like this. But this is sick.
On the other hand, it is always good to know how to pray for you.

Amy said...

I am so sorry. Praying for wisdom and discernment for you. Praying for you and your family still.

Stephanie said...

my prayers continue on your behalf and those precious boys you've been given.

I'd love to know Nick's contact info. I'll call him for you if you want. I'm sure that many, many of us would call him on your behalf.

I am shocked beyond words to read this. How nice your prayer is...my initial thoughts were not as publishable.
The Bible instructs us to take care of our widows...I believe this man will suffer consequences on earth as in Heaven for this travesty. God save his soul for these intentions.

Ro said...

Oh yes, please...let us know how to contact Nick. I'd love to discuss this with him.

Praying for you.

If it is possible for one stranger to love another stranger more than I love you and your boys, I just don't know how it could be. I think you are just incredibly special and so courageous. Please don't fix my grammar, I tried to write that as eloquently as I could. LOL. LOVE LOVE LOVE your writing.
