Gratitude

I've been feeling a little emotional lately (lately?), so I just wanted to take a little time to express my appreciation for all the support I've been getting both from my loyal readers in blogland and from my friends and family IRL. I really do feel lucky to have such a steady support system. All of your comments, emails, and phone calls bring me comfort and hope. It doesn't matter if you know EXACTLY what I'm going through, or if you haven't a clue in the world what to say to me. The gestures still mean a lot.

My mom basically stopped her life for us last week to help out while I was on bed rest. I know she thinks she didn't do much, but just keeping me company was exactly what I needed. My friend T took time out of her busy schedule and her brand new job to come over and just hang for a couple of hours Thursday night. And my friend R took the afternoon off of work Friday to not only bring me lunch and hang for the afternoon, but she also made us a kick ass chicken enchilada casserole that I enjoyed a little too much both Friday night and last night.

You guys rock!

Today's photo journal theme is:






This picture is of a sculpture outside of the Dal.i Universe in London. It is actually a sculpture of a headless woman, but there is something definitively masculine about it.

Right on. Having support IRL is the best. Sure, having lots of blogger girls rooting you on is good, but getting chicken enchilada casserole? Hell YES!

I'm exhausted. I need to catch up more tomorrow. I took tomorrow off just to do it.

That's what Moms do-- love, support, keep company, etc, etc. I just hope that someday very soon you will experience the emotions from the Mom side of life. I love you.

It's so nice when people cook from their hearts for you. Someone brought me some down-home comfort food, the kind of stuff I haven't eaten since childhood, after my surgery. It was made with such care; it was like chowing down on a big bowl of healing.

So glad that you have such great friends and parents to help you through this!
