And now a word of thanks

I must say that despite my circumstances (which I rant on about ad nauseum, I know), I must say that I am really lucky to have so many beautiful people in my life.

After my last post, this month has had a much more positive hue, due 100% to the kind and generous souls that I am so lucky to have crossed paths with:

The short list–thank you’s for the last three weeks:

To Ashley and Jeremy for being such good friends to me and my kids and for letting me borrow your dog and for watching both of my kids so I could have a night out with adults–such a rare and special treat! To everyone who showed up to the Aquarian Birthday bash–it was so much fun!!!! Too many to name here. To Paige for making me laugh and laugh last night. To Michael for being with me and being Flash. To Mary and Fred for your consistent love, support, and food!! And running partnership!! To Gwen, my bestest friend in the whole world. To Julie, for her funny and quirky ways, and for being the bread fairy amongst other roles (boy coach in particular as of late!) To Jennifer Sanders for offering childcare so I could meditate for 3 hours TWICE in one week. To my mom, for bringing dinner and hanging with the kids and taking them to school. To Samantha for her wise words of encouragement, including on this year’s b-day card. To Kelli and Marcie for their friendship and support. To Suzanne, such a loving, healing, fun soul. And the best massage therapist in Birmingham. To Andy, for great conversation with dinner and other connections. To Anton for raking my leaves and sitting in my livingroom with a crowbar when I thought a crazy guy was going to come to my house. To Lena for being such a great person, neighbor and teacher. To Janet and Dad for the flowers. To Sharron for her words of encouragement, resources, and upbeat positive energy. And Marley and Avery, my beautiful children.

I’m sure I’ve left people out of this list, so thank you to those I have forgotten, too. Am I not lucky? I cherish all that you have given me and hope that in some small measure I have been able to be a positive force in your lives.
