She took a moment to admire her creation, but couldn’t believe she came up with it. She had put a lot sweat and tears into this, but it was all worth it. She never imagined she would have been able to pull it off. She had simply done it in order to deal with a rather difficult situation. But now that she had acquired this skill, she had set it upon herself to see it through to the very end. And it didn’t matter what she had to do to achieve her goal.

Amber Mills had been going through a rough patch for a while. She became a Marine when she was very young and did a lot of training and fighting in one of the most dangerous jobs there was. Then, she decided to retire and go back to being a civilian in Hurst, Texas. She was excited about spending more time with her loved ones. And everything was okay, for a bit. But she was about to hit several bumps in the road.

Difficult Adjustment

Mills had two daughters and a son. They were a handful, but she liked keeping busy. She even tried looking for work. But her hopes were shattered when she started to feel tired and sick. Eventually, her condition got so bad that she went to the doctor. It turns out that she had multiple sclerosis. This would make it impossible for her to work, so instead, she focused on being a full-time mom. This wasn’t an easy adjustment.

“I live with a lot of pain and a lot of uncertainty of what each day will bring,” Mills said. Her diagnosis was difficult to accept. To make things worse, she couldn’t work, which made her feel as though she wasn’t contributing to the household. This was not the kind of lifestyle she was used to living. Before long, she found herself feeling sad and helpless. She even lost interest in the things that made her happy. But then, everything changed.

Mills was online and stumbled on a website called CheapChicWeddings, which is a great tool for future brides looking to have an affordable wedding. Mills didn’t have any wedding plans in the near future, but the website managed to pique her interest. Each year, the site conducted a dress design contest for a wedding. But these weren’t your atypical wedding dresses either. In lieu of fabric, people had to create one using toilet paper.
