I don't know what to say!
This has overwhelmed me to the point of me sitting here in tears, I just wish I could hug you all and tell you all how much this has touched me! I feel so honoured to be called your friend.
Each and everyone of you have touched me in so many ways since I have joined this site! I have laughed with you, cried with you, hoped and sent my thoughts of healing to you and received so much more in return. I owe you all such a huge debt of gratitude! You have all made me feel special in a time in my life where I felt invisible and small. A time of despair and depression. A time of loss and confusion. You have been there for me more than the friends I have here in my physical surrounds! I have felt closer to you all than I have to any one in a long time.
You are in my thoughts first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I looked forward to hearing your stories, what had happened in your day, your furbabies and their antics. Felt sorrow for your losses and joy at your new arrivals.
I felt so proud when I showed off my babies to you all and you all said such nice things! I was and am still a proud crazy cat woman that took to many photos LOL!
You have all made me think, feel and share things I never dreamed I would! I have wanted to invite you all into my life and my home. I gained such strength from you all. I started to feel that life was worth living! I will stay in touch if thatâ€™s okay.
I'll be around from time to time. I don't want to lose something so precious that I never thought I would find in the first place. I am blessed and touched by the angels in you all!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It aches with the pure joy I feel knowing you are all there! I wish you all the happiness, love, health and security in the world because you all deserve the best! I donâ€™t want to lose all this for the few episodes and people that have upset me. I will remain loyal and true as I always have. If I say something that someone may not like then I am sorry, if I do something that someone may not like then for that I am also sorry. But I cannot be false or fake to please everybody. So I will post from time to time and for those of you that know me well you will not take offence or insult, for those of you that do I cannot change just for you!
Thank you again and I am sorry for the long ramble. I found some more poems that explain how I feel so much better than I can write.
With all the love, hugs and kisses in the world to you all.
EVERYONE NEEDS SOMEONE
People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldly fame,
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we're understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
When we "lock up our hearts" and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life's completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with our loved ones
-Helen Steiner Rice
It is by chance we met, by choice we became friends... Friendship is a strange thing....we find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives...things we don't even share with our families who raised us...But what is a friend? A confidant? A lover? A fellow email junkie? A shoulder to cry on? An ear to listen? A heart to feel?... A friend is all these things...and more. No matter where we met, .... I call you friend. A word so small...yet so large in feeling...a word filled with emotion.
It is true great things come in small packages. Once the package of friendship has been opened, it can never be closed... it is a constant book always written...waiting to be read... and enjoyed. We may have our disagreements...we may argue... we may concern one another...friendship is a unique bond that lasts through it all....
A part of me is put into my friends...some it is my humour... some it is my listening ear... some it is real life experiences... some it is my romanticism...but with all, it is friendship.
Friendships forged are a construct stronger than steel built as a foundation....necessary for life... and necessary for love. Friends...you and me... you brought another friendâ€¦.. and then there were 3... we started our group... Our circle of friends... and like that circle... there is no beginning or end...
