I just wanted to thank all the wonderful folks who helped cheer me up here last night
. Some you showed your compassion
openly in the chatterbox and in private messages. Everyone who was here - whether or not we interacted - was a source of comfort and joy. Still, others did it indirectly just by the virtue of writing some awesome nodes. I only wish I hadn't run out of C!
s to spread in gratitude
The night wasn't a total loss. Mom assures me my step dad is getting better and that they want to reschedule our feast ASAP
. Plus, I got an unexpected surprise: my friend Chris
wants to take Hubster, Munchkin
and me out to dinner tonight. I know that's going to be a blast!
Family and friends are some of the true treasures
that make things in life - good, bad and indifferent - worthwhile. Again, thank you
