Cause somewhere in my youth
I must have done something good
Case in point. Yesterday and today I have received some absolutely amazing emails from women that I am so fortunate to have as friends.
Here is the first from my almost-sis-in-law:
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you for being such a wonderful person. Thank you for always listening, without judgement. Thank you for being there when I need someone. Thank you for having great advice, that always makes complete sense. Thank you for letting me cry, for helping me laugh at myself, and most importantly, let me be me.
It has never been easy for me to open up and live my life in front of others without my "mask". Thank you for being who you are, that makes me feel so comfortable, that I can open up to you, be me, and still be cared about.
I admire you. I love you. I appreciate you.
Thank you for being you.
And then today, here is part of an email from the gal we all know and love, our Smarty pants Miss Kelly from Painting With Words
Also, I left a little message about how grateful I am for your friendship and how you found me.
I love all your friends, and the little blog community that I have that is growing.
You are a special lady, Ms. Karianne!
Thanks for everything!
As my students say...
"You RAWK my face off!"
Along with the little cards and gifts, most recently from sinceAlison I won her latest contest. I also have some plans in the works to actually face to face meet Melissa! How rich am I? You guys mean the world to me. I never knew that a blog could add so much to my life and be such an important facet of my social life. Being a human is difficult for me on any given day with all that it entails. You all make me look forward to getting up in the morning.
The silver lining to losing my dad has been finding you women. You have helped me so much. When I miss him like I have been lately, you guys are where I turn first for support. I don't know how I could have made it this far without you. And I mean, ALL of you.
All of my love and appreciation, still wondering how I"m so lucky,
