I'm repeating my response to the kind words in response to yesterday's post because it's important to me that you know I appreciate your kind words:
"Thanks everyone for the kind words. I never see myself as anything except an older woman who loves and cares about people. When anyone has been down as many roads as I have in the past 65 years you learn that compassion for your fellow person (being politically correct) is important. I've come to care for each and everyone of you and consider you my friend - I'm certainly yours."
I spent my early morning thinking about my best friend's grandson. He had surgery this morning. It was a follow-up to an earlier surgery to remove a tumor from inside his ear. All went well. There's no reason to believe that he'll have problems - there was no malignancy. For that we are more thankful than words can tell.
I would like to pass along the generous award that was given to me by Robbin at Ceder Chest of Dreams to you, my readers and supporters. I came to the blogg community not knowing what to expect. You made me feel welcome and part of an already established community. I never felt I had to prove myself or be anything other than the old woman that I am. There are times that I've given advice that wasn't solicited - you know old folks do that. You have always been kind in your response though I'm sure there have been times when you wished I'd just shut me trap. I see you as my support system. You listen when I complain and sympathize, laugh with me when I laugh, and even more tolerate my long posts about my kids and grandkids. In short you, my friends, are each and every one an important part of my life.
