I first heard about Terry and Enchanted Makeovers when I was part of an online mall called Shabby Lane Shops. There was a challenge that went out to us from another group called Make Mine Pink. A very, very easy slipper pattern had been developed and the slippers would be used for a shelter who Terry was working her magic on! I made a few pair and naturally started reading more and more about Terry and her dream of giving needful women and children not just a bed and a blanket, but a beautiful place to stay where they would be not just safe but uplifted by their surroundings. The more I read, the more I wanted to do. Let me just say that for those of you who haven't had a one on one conversation with Terry, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING! She shared her story and I shared some of mine and she quietly listened to every word that spilled out of me. I'll never forget that conversation. Anyway, I pledged to help as much as I could in the way of fabric goods - bags, aprons, slippers, etc. Sadly, my body decided not to cooperate with my heart and I had to tell Terry I could no longer be a part of her cause. I still haven't given up the hope that there will come a day when I can again volunteer. In the meantime, Terry's work goes on. It grows and grows and hundreds, probably thousands, of women and children have been blessed by her dream that turned into a reality. God bless you, Terry!
