I have the most amazing friends in the entire world.
I have seen only pictures of some of you, but most, I do not even know what you look like but I know to me you are all beautiful souls and angels.
I have shared laughs, tears,hopes and dreams. Tea parties, holiday decorations, rants, happinesses, victories and life. I have given away hand made items and receieved amazing and precious gifts. Told stories to and been entertained by and made a place for myself that has led me to this moment.
I never used to believe that hope is alive. I never thought I'd ever know another soul who knew what I was like and still like me for myself. I wasn't sure I could trust myself to be real and still feel like I was okay......
And then there was you my lovelies.
And there are so very many of you who know my family, my heart, my life, my craziness, my pain. Who go out of your way to be truthful, positive, direct, kind, gentle, funny and what I have been lucky enough to find here in this cyber jungle......friends, soul sisters, people I can count on to help readjust my compass and kick my butt when necessary and hug me when I need it.
Know that I do not take this lightly, I do not assume you are just there. Know that I am a better person today and able to hold my head up and face what is to come because of you.
There is a storm coming our way, one that life has given us. We are ready, able and eager to meet the storm and it's wind damage because we (my family) know you all have our backs. Thank you for the reassuring, warm comments felt and received. We will be here in the aftermath to let you know what has happened and we will all rejoice together my friends. We'll have one of those celebrations that is purely based on good winning a good fight.
Keep my babies in your thoughts and prayers. I may falter momentarily because of this damnable depression but I am and will continue to focus on the matter at hand.
Please know you are appreciated, respected and loved by all five of us at Casa de Cuckoo.
Thanks, I am feeling much better today.
