If you know of Melting Mama, but haven't visited recently, then you may not know that she had an "episode" while in the hospital for a post-op ps check for her husband. According to her Mom, who made an entry for MM, MM is fine and they are working to get her answers. MM is a terrific spirit and I love her candor. Get well Mama! Our prayers/vibes/karma are with you!!
Now, on to the thanks part of this entry...
A brief e-mail discussion with one of my favorite bloggers is prompting a message outside of my recent boring food and workout journal entries -- imagine that! LOL!
I am so thankful for the blogship I have with some of you. You dish it out straight up, you keep me believing and just when I'm feeling like this effort is just one challenge after another -- which it is, but at least one of you says something that just brings me back to the moment.
13 years ago I started "online." To this day I have still have friendships with those first few I've met, albeit at a distance. (Kim F. in Ohio, if you're out there girlie, email me -- we need to catch up by phone!).
As a kid we moved around a lot, so I don't really have any life-long friends. There was a time I used to envy that in others, but as an adult I realize that it's quality, not quantity. I'd rather have just a few close friends who are true, than life-long friends who are fair-weathered.
Anyway, just a note of thanks for all of you who help me to believe in me, even when I find it a daunting challenge.
