I find myself... this morning... a bit drained... a bit unistpired... a bit melancholy....
Had a pretty emotional weekend, which I don't really want to get into...
So, in stead of moping around the house in my ever present comfy sweats, eating ice-cream out of the tub, submerged in self pity (yuk), what I will do... is something I've been wanting to do for some time now... send my gratitude and love to all my faithful readers and followers...
When I started this blog, it was to have a bucket where I could pour all my thoughts and emotions into, which would help me cope with what we are going through, and also to have a place where friends and family would find some updates and overall information about how Gagik was doing.
Well... after some 57 posts and 14 followers... this has become a place of comfort for me, something to look forward to each day, a place that inspires and feeds my creativity, which in turn makes each day bearable, it truly is my way of survival at the moment. And for this I have all of you to thank. Each time I see a new name under my "followers" or have a comment from someone new, it makes my day.... And who are you wonderful people, that find time in your lives to encourage and give so much love, share your thoughts and give so much strength to.... well.... a stranger in need?
To Susan C. and Sue B., two extraordinary women who are also at war with this "real weapon of mass destruction" (as I like to refer to this sick disease)... thank you for all the positive feedback and words of strength that you have sent my way, your words have meant so much to me, and I hope that in some small way I have contributed to at least a few happy moments in your lives.
To Julochka, when you introduced and praised my little blog on your "700" post, to your 800 some followers, it made my day, and sent me straight to cloud 9 for a week (where I don't find myself too often lately), I was crying and so touched that you found something special in my words to share with your readers.... thank you!
To Jules, for inspiring me with your daily postings and for the invite to a virtual pot of tea on my next visit to your little corner of the blogosphere.
To Kitty for your red lipstick kisses sent my way. To Janet, for all the beauty you posses inside and sharing it with us all. To Liz, for sharing your knowledge about natures treasures with us all.
To Dash my first follower... thanks for being there from the beginning. Stacey thanks for giving us Discounderworld, enjoy reading it. Jennifer and Ali thanks for joining me.
To Philip, who after following silently for some time, found himself moved by my words enough to share his thoughts, I hope I can give you some courage and strength in return to deal with all that is going on in your life now.
And to everyone who shares this corner with me, to all the friends and family who have sent much love, support and prayers our way.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
Is this sounding a bit like a farewell letter??? On the contrary.... it is a letter that says....
"this is the begging of a beautiful friendship" or should I say "blogship".
Love and Peace!
