Oh no! I'm so sorry! :(


Oh Cherri! I'm so sorry. I hope you can get things straightened out in a hurry. And hopefully the holidays, family and friends will take your mind off of the losers who do steal stuff.


I am so sorry...Our home was broken into about 10 years ago...by teenagers...they took all my jewelry, my husbands watch that was his grandfathers and then proceeded to destroy the house. The only thing that really got to me was that they took the ring my late dad had given me at my confirmation.
It can't be replaced...
It took me awhile to remember that they are only "things"..(even though they were my things!) and no one was home...
You too were lucky..you never know what will happen if they are surprised to find someone at home..


OH Cherr1! I am so sorry for you....that is dispicable (sp?) I will be praying all things are righted soon for you!


This just sucks. I know how you feel my apt was broke into. I'll be thinking of you.

On the plus side when you replace your Wii you can get the new cool red one. Wait, you can buy my Wii off me and I will get the red one.


Oh no, Cherri. That's just horrible, especially this time of year. I'm so sorry you're going through this on top of the other things you're dealing with. Life just isn't fair sometimes, especially when bad things happen to good people like you.


Cherri, it seems so unfair that all these things keep tackling you. I'm so sorry that your home was violated like that. I'd give you a big ol' hug in person if I could. Until then {{{{Cherri}}}}


Oh, that is horrible...I am so sorry that happened to you. *hugs*


Cherri, I am so sorry! Unbelievable what people to can do. And in the face of all of this your concern is others. I pray that things turn around for you and quickly. And I hope they catch who ever did this to you.


Cherri, this is HORRIBLE! I really get mad at people that feel the only way to get the things they need/want or want to sell is to steal from someone else. It's not just things. It is the sense of violation. That someone would do this. I pray for you tonight. For your peace of mind and for your stress level. It will take awhile but know that the 'quilting community' is sending you hugs, prayers and love.

Eileen G

So sorry to hear that. I'll say a prayer for you, send you some hugs and let us know if there's anything you need.


Oh Cherri, that is rotten! I'm so sorry that happened but I'm thankful you are safe.


I'm so sorry this happened to you. No hurry whatsoever on sending my pattern.


Oh I am so sorry! This happened to us a year ago and we are just now starting to feel normal again. It is such a violation. I am not being cliche saying thank heaven you are okay and that they were only after things that can be replaced and not something more sinister. Take care.


Cherri-So sorry to hear of the bad news, I hope all of these things were insured with homeowners and can be replaced with a small deductible and hasself of paperwork. Keep in mind they are just things that can be replaced. I found out today my daughter is very ill and will need surgery...I think the evil one just wants to try to rob us of any Christmas joy.


I am so sorry to hear that :(

Oh, how horrible, rotten, upsetting and just plain mean! As if you haven't enough to think about, I am afraid it would be unkind of me not to share: if you had any personal information on your computer (and who doesn't??) it could lead to Identity Theft. Do you have a police report? If not get one ASAP, and contact all three credit reporting agencies (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) and FREEZE your credit! Yours, hubby's, kiddos, anyone whose social security number was ever entered into your computer for any reason. It's a hassle, and will be any time in the future you try to get credit, but it beats having to face the consequences of IDT.

Wishing you all the best, and may the police find the idiots who did this. And all your stuff.


I'm so sorry/angry/mad/dismayed/something!!! that this happened to your family! I'm saying a prayer for you, and hoping that God shows you the reason for this. I'm thankful you are safe. All the stuff can be replaced but you and your loved ones are safe. PS I hope your Mom is doing better too.

Cherri, I'm so so sorry to hear this. How horrible. I can imagine the deluge of emotions you must be feeling- I am feeling them in part for you too. My best wishes that you overcome the obstacles in all of this as quickly as possible. xo


Cherri, what terrible news. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, the feeling of violation must be horrible. I'm thinking of you and hoping something nice happens to lighted your spirits.


So sorry to hear this. I know what a violated, confused feeling that is. I hope you are still able to find peace for the season knowing that you are safe. Dwell on what you still have - not on what is missing!


I'm so sorry you're having to endure this. These are all such personal possessions!!! Karma will come around to bit this person, but I know that doesn't bring back the things that were lost. I agree with Paula, find comfort in all you do have!! Many hugs!!


My heart and prayers go out to you!


I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles! Hopefully there wasn't anything taken that can't be replaced. I do hope that things get better for you and your family very soon!


So sorry to hear that you and the house have been wronged....Glad you and your family are safe and hope that the days ahead are better ones for you!

nikki mcdonald

That's terrible. I don't understand how people can do things like that. I hope the police are able to find your things and the person who did this. So frustrating.


Cherri, I'm so sorry you've had to go through that! How stinking rotten of some jerk to do that. I'm glad your family is safe and will be praying that you are comforted during this recovery time. Just what you needed. Thankfully, things can be replaced, as well as the locks on the doors.


I'm so sorry! I hope all these messages of cheer and sympathy will help to lift you up. (((hugs)))

Cheryl Arkison

Unbelievable. One silver lining is what Lizzy pointed out on Twitter - they didn't take the sewing machine!
Hang in there, you've got lots of support in person and on-line.

Connie Sayler

Oh, I am so very sorry!! :-(


How terrible! My husband had his car stolen once and it is so beyond frustrating! Be thankful that they are just things that can be replaced and that you weren't hurt. What a pain in the you know what though to have to deal with this right before Christmas! So sorry!

Cathy A

Oh, no! I'm sorry!!

Nancy B from Many LA

I'm so sorry for you - what a rotten thing to do, and a rotten time of year to have it happen! Glad you weren't home though, could have been bad.
I hate the evil in people - but just know that God was watching and He remembers!


Oh, Cherri, my heart breakes for you. We will be praying for you. This is such a bad time of the year for this to happen on top of the struggles you have been having.


I'm sending you a hug. What a horrible thing to happen.

Sandy Narayan

I'm so sorry to hear this! I'm hoping that this is the last in a string of bad things to happen. Keep your chin up and hang in there. Hugs!

Anne D

I am so sorry to hear about your break in.


This is so very horrible. My prayers for you to get over this.

Jen Eskridge

That is dreadful! I'm glad you are ok.


Cherri, I am so sorry this happened to you! Please don't worry about mailing things out- get everything straightened out first!


I am absolutely heartbroken; such an awful violation. LoveDove. I'll see you soon!

Cara @ Me? A Mom?

I just wanted to say I'm keeping you in my thoughts. And that I'm praying for those who did this. May they have a change of heart and stop doing this to people. Nobody deserves to be violated like that.

Courtney Dirks

So terribly sorry to hear that happened. If there is anything the Meylah team can do, please don't hesitate to ask.


so sorry Cherri! :( how afwul!! people can be so stinky!


Cherri I'm so sorry. I've only had a car broken into and radio stolen, but even that left me feeling so violated. I can't even imagine how you must feel when it's your home. I know the chances of the police catching the thieves is probably slim, but remember for solace, what goes around, eventually comes around. They will get theirs. Hope you're able to get through this and still enjoy the holidays with family & friends.

Rafael's mum

O Cherri I am so sorry to hear that! It's horrible to get things stolen but computers have so much more in them like photos etc, so totally understand, as I am sure will all your readers! Take your time sorting things and I hope you get back to some equilibrium soon. In the meantime I am thinking of you and sending positive thoughts over the ocean in the hope it might help a little xxx


This is a terrible thing I'm sorry. This happened to me many years ago and it was such a violation knowing that some strangers were in you house touching who knows what. Sending prayers ans positive thoughts your way.

Rebecca Merry

I'm so sorry for that horrible violation! Prayers to your and yours!


Cherri, that's awful! I would be really distraught if I was in that situation. I hope you can feel peace and security soon!


that is terrible! i'm so very sorry to hear.
