Trying to remember that there is always a reason, always something that makes you smile during the day- recognizing the event, person or situation that made you smile will make your day seem that much better.

Just wanted to say...

that your words inspire me...
they make me smile...
they make me laugh..
I have cried at your posts...
I have smiled at your pictures..
I have hoped and wished that there would be a cure..
You have helped me, smiled with me, been there for me..
I have read your blog longer than anyone elses..
You were the "first" blog that I followed...
and yours will always be on my list..
You inspire so many...
Always ready with a comment to make someone smile..
Always ready with an email when it is needed...
I know what it feels like when your body betrays you..
But please know that your words..whatever they are...even when it's not every day...inspire me.
I don't "Know" you in the traditional way that people "know" each other...
but I count you as a dear friend...
Tonight, my blog is dedicated to you...
the one who smiles in spite of it all..
the one who writes for the joy of writing
the one who shares from the heart
the one who is at the center of our little blog family...
you may not think that it's "enough"
but girl, i gotta tell you..it's all you.....and sharing "you" with the world is a gift.
Sending healing thoughts to you...
Sending a bunch of silly jokes to make you smile...
But mostly sending my love and admiration...
because you inspire me and you will always be enough.
