And I didn't even have to dress UP....

I am honored DAILY that you incredible people make the time to come visit me here. I know you all, and even when you say "Anonymous",  I remember your voice and can associate you with previous comments or emails.

It lifts me up more than you will EVER know.

I share with you here my life, my soul, my ups and my downs.  I am honest about who I am, what I do, when I'm good and when I'm bad.

And you never, ever judge me.  (Well, except for one particular person who shall remain unnamed, but honestly, if there is only ONE cranky apple in this huge basket then I am lucky, indeed.)

And this weekend I was SHOCKED and honored to receive accolades from BlogHer for a painful post I wrote recently about my journey with The Golden Boy.

While my heart is still trying to mend itself, it surely helps to have others around who are sending prayers to help it along the way.

And it IS helping.  Beyond MEASURE, it is helping....and I thank you.

Carry on.....

Well, of course you should receive accolades. #1 you know how to spell accolades. #2 you're honest as all get-out and that's seriously lacking these days. #3 you deserve it.........and much, much more.
