Buckets of Graditude


















I am grateful and feel so filled with love for each and every one of you. Individually, you took the time to share your feelings and gave me heartfelt support and it was amazing. This is what I learned....we truly have developed a community of people who will protect, won't hesitate to show kindness and create a safe place for all of us to give, take and grow. I thank you with a full heart, what more could a girl ask for?.....................

(Well, the money and time for us all to go to a 5 star hotel for a slumber party! Wheeeeee!)

XXXXXXXXXXXXX Darlene XXXXXXXXXXXXX

p.s.the rose showed up on my door step w/ muffins and pumpkin butter...Thanks A ;-)

we are already at our own slumber party - we offer support, a bit of juicy gossip, and we are comforted in the company of one another.

i was so sad to read that last post, but again you ended it hopeful. your strength is beyond amazing!

Could we take the muffins and pumpkin butter along to the 5-star hotel? Okay, so they probably wouldn't be so fresh by then.

A more deserving recipient I cannot imagine. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday :-D Star

OH MY GOD. I can't believe someone criticized your beautiful blog and the way you share your pain and struggles!! That someone made you feel like you need to justify the severity of your disease!! For just a minute, imagine "anon" unmasked in a room with the rest of us. Tee hee. We normally sweet-tempered bloggers would become mama bears all of a sudden and it would NOT be pretty. Thank you for sharing the way you do. How could anyone see harm in this? And if they did, why would they say so?

I got an anon comment a while back that hurt my feelings and I know it is an awful feeling.

I am sending you a great big bear hug.

P.S.
I use something called Statcounter. It is free and it tells you who visits your site.
