I am repeating this since some things ARE worth repeating. I've revised it to fit this thread.
When we didn't want to face things that happened we went on living as we normally did so that we didn't have to face the truth. I think many of us have had close calls or a "wake-up call". (Sometimes I think God likes to give us a strong jolt to wake us up rather than make us sleep forever, if you know what I mean?)
You, MA, have been there to defuse our situations through your wisdom, heart, and words. You are strong and caring and very loved and respected. By your words you toughen us up and tell us to "Do with what you have to help with what you can." You give a softer side approach, to us people with no faces, that willingly accept your words of support, wisdom, and love and mix it with our own experience, to fix the problem we're going through.
You show us your true colors. My therapist has told me that you judge a person best by how he/she acts under pressure. Just look how you pulled us through the countless times you have!!!!
Once you said you were humbled to be among us....well MA, we simply allow you to bring out who you are by asking for your help. Seems to me we're the ones who are truly humbled by your friendship, love, and wisdom (from which you received from your Mom). Simply put......thank you with love.
