My Stampin Connection friends need me - and I need them - We are family

It's all about US
a sence of belonging
friendship, love and concern for others
everyone working together to make a positive difference in the world
touching lives - one card at a time

I'm going to do a lot of good thinking/praying today 
because I want to write Shelli Gardner a letter and I need the wording to be inspired.

will you please think good thoughts/pray for me.

Shelli is the one who signed me up over 20 years ago.

I have been suspended from stampin connection for 3 months. Right over the time of convention. 
Many team members and close friends are on my LNS stampin connection group and that is how I stay in touch with them.

What they say I did wrong was a few little things that many other long time demonstrators do.
I sent a letter to compliance with examples. I don't want these other demonstrators to get in trouble, I only want my privileges back. 

I am trying to forgive the group of 5 people who complained about me.
I have been told that many of my friends have called or written letter on my behalf. Over 62 of the so far.

If I can't be there who will share my love for each of these dear friends. 
Many of them need me. People are much more important than how many stamps we sell I have said that over and over again.
I try to show that I believe it with my actions. 

Now that our family has grown up I need to feel needed. I want other to know they have value. 
These friends and team members mean the world to me. I need to be able to talk with them on a daily basis to help them through their trials. 
I love them with all of my heart and I wish to continue serving them. 

I guess I just wrote my letter. 
Thanks for listening dear friend, I love you!

May God bless you, your family, and your stampin up business,
Sherrill Graff

You are one of the most loving, kind people I know. I don't always understand when people are petty but I guess that's between them and God. I don't feel that you were treated fairly with your suspension from Stampin Connection but I also know that God can take any situation or circumstance and make good from it. I will pray that God will show you the good in this. Take care and know that many of us are praying for you. Your sister in Christ,
Sharon Fritz

I discovered today that my Stampin connection account is suspended as well. I have no idea why they suspended me. Do you think it is because I am no longer a Demonstrator? In that case I would think they would delete my account, not suspend it. I am confused.
