Gratitude

How can I tell you how grateful I am for you? For your tender, sweet emails and offers of kind generosity? I have shed tears of joy and gratitude for the open hearts and open hands within my circle of friends. And I know, more than ever, the world can be a good place, filled with people who care. People who don't have to, people who struggle through their own days, and still, still can find the love and energy to reach out to one of the little ones. You amaze me, humble me, lift me. Thank you darling, darling friends. I am in AWE!
After you read this, close your eyes and imagine that I am standing in front of you. I am looking into your eyes, you can see my tears and my joy shining, shining just for you. I take my hands, I place them over my heart and then I reach out and place them on your heart. And you carry a part of me with you, as you have cared for a precious soul, she and I will always be a part of you now. Thank you. Thank you.
