Friends in Need, Friends Indeed

Before posting ANYTHING else here on the ol' blog, I've been backlogged with thank-yous pending. I simply haven't been able to stop in to each person's site to pen a personal note of gratitude, but I'm definately putting it here before any more time elapses!

THANK YOU to all who have dropped me notes, snail mail, comments here, and in so many ways been wonderful and supportive friends during the events of the past month. Here are some of the friends who left comments that went a long long way in keeping me afloat during days at the hospice. (If you stopped here and I have left your name out, it is unintentional...forgive me, please)

Gina, Angie, Paulette, Meadowlark, Nola, Brenda Kula, Kim, Stephanie, Maria, Nita, Steph, Phelan, Kathie, Carla, Meg, Carolyn, Tina F., Annie, Killi, Patrik, Christina, Laurie, SugarCreekStuff, Lisa, Wendy, Danni, Sengdroma, Robin, Mommymommyland, Lacy, Donna, Miriam, Granny Sue, Plantain patch, Monica...

And to anyone whose name I didn't see, but who kept us in thought and prayer...

Thank you for being such a great community that has proven to be a REAL community in my life, be it at whatever distance. Your care, humor, sensitivity, and encouragement truly were a lifeline not only for myself, but for my husband as well.

THANK YOU.

I am so honored to have you as friends! I am truly humbled :)

Friendship can't be measured by miles! That's the beauty of friendship, friends are here when you need them, no matter where they are physically. You've been through a lot, and if you need a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen, I am here...

Aw, pshaw! No thanks needed - what a difficult time you have been through. You have enough other stuff to take care of and, no doubt, some serious attention to pay to your own health and sanity. It's good to have you back, though. :-)

Nola, thanks! The same offer goes to you, anytime you need, as well. So nice to have kindred spirit friends here! :)

Danni, thanks! It's funny how hard it was to get any momentum back after taking some time off. It's been good for my health, though my sanity has always been in question...ha ;-)

Christina! I missed you, too...I have a lot of catching up to do on friends' blogs so don't give up on me...it's going to take some time...I'll be stopping in, for sure :)
