First of all, THANK YOU for all the kind words of encouragement and empathy you poured out after THIS POST.
I'm still re-reading the comments and many emails I received, and I'm humbled.
It helped hugely just to write it out, bring it to the light, face it in black and white.
But healing really took wings as I read your words.
I know I'm nowhere near 'over it', but somehow sharing my pain out loud and hearing from so many of you gave me just a little ray of sunshine.
And wouldn't you know....that same day in the mail, I received a gift from a reader who had no idea of my pain at that point.
Yes indeedy, life is a bugger. :)
Thank You too, Sammye...you brightened my day, and I LOVE the tag you made me
(and I uber-love that you made those sweet wee eggs out of tic tacs...genius!)
It will sit perched above my 'puter screen along with other sweet cards and such that remind me that I am loved and appreciated, even though I struggle with depression and weight issues and can't find my sense of humor at times.
I also might mention that I took a HUGE leap today.
I'll share more about that soon, but I don't think I would've risked it without all the care and support I received on this here bloggy.
You all played a part in pushing me to believe in risking another try.
Little Debbie's all around!
