Guess what time of the year it is? Yes, it’s my sister’s birthday.
Last year I took a few days and a few pads of paper to come up with the perfect letter to my sister and there is NO way I could ever top it. Trust me, I reread it and I cried as hard as I did when I was typing it a year ago.
What I did find was the fantastic comments left by my readers…the same readers that you still see here today. The readers that stuck with me through just about everything.
The readers that not only welcomed me, but my Mom The Fonz and my sister. The same readers that I find on other blogs leaving the heartfelt comments, funny comments or a comment that just say, ‘me too’.
I know I go on and on about how lucky I am to have the readers/comments that I do. Today I read someone’s blog that had a person that left a comment that just sucked. It was mean, hurtful and wrong and it is a reminder of how lucky I am to have such a kick ass support system. You know me for the person you read me as. You over look my typos (except Nilbo ;) You give me another way to look at a situation. You let me believe that I’m right when you know i’m not. You send me private emails and tell me to pull my head out of my ass in the nicest way possible.
In addition for all that you do for me, you do for others. You have left my sister comments when she needed a comment.
You have been there to offer comfort to those that are hurting.
YOU. You are awesome.
*cough* as AWESOME as you all are, you have a SHORT attention span on Friday when you know you have to scroll through those links and look at other people’s ‘stuff’…so that is why I am asking you today, Stuff Portrait Eve, to go wish my beautiful, wonderful, understanding sister a Happy Birthday.
I love you, Kathy!
