You are among the people I hold dear. I worry about your children, your uncles, your fathers, husbands, sisters, jobs and life.
There are so many people that tell me that all of you are fake, spoofs of my imagination. As I am sure there are some people that use their words to reinvent themselves, they are not people that I choose to blog with. Until I start to say, well there is _____. She has two kids and lives in _____. She does this and that and volunteers here. She is dealing with her father going through _______. All of a sudden they realize that you aren't just screen names, but real people who do share much of your lives with the rest of us.
The people I blog with are real. They experience real triumphs, pain, frustration, and are part of my life.
I have had the opportunity to get to know some of your fairly well and many of you know me.
I have been thinking and one of these days, there are many of you that I would love to have the opportunity to warm my arms around your neck and give you a big 'ole hug.
I actually begin and end my day with you guys. Even if I don't have time to blog or comment, I check in and make sure all is good in your lives....
I also want you all to know that I appreciate the roles you play in my own life. Encouraging me, stripping me of chicken feathers, and giving me lots 'o hugs (this girl loves hugs).
