Oh sunny, happy Monday morning to you all dear friends! I hope you all had a super weekend. I’ve missed you…I’ve been away from my laptop since posting on Friday. Son Nicky spent the weekend with us celebrating Hubby’s birthday and I packed up my troubles, left them behind and enjoyed a wonderful family weekend. I found my Happy Feet.
When I wrote Friday’s post I was exhausted and worn down. Not by my lovely, bright, beautiful, articulate, intelligent, wise, soulful, intuitive, creative, loyal, artistic, computer literate, savvy, amazing E-bay bartering, animal adoring, deep thinking, unique, thinking out-of-the-box, stylish, photographing, writing, clever, mischievous, blogging, gorgeous daughter who just happens to live with a higher functioning Autistic Spectrum Disorder called Asperger’s Syndrome which she would give anything not to have – deep breath – but by those who I have to deal with on her behalf to get her up on her feet again.
A crisis is one thing, I’ll rise to that, but it’s the steady, incessant drip-drip-drip of one thing after another going wrong that does me in, every time. So, while attempting to mop up after these drips, which by Friday had formed a veritable flood (got floods on my mind, obviously) I still hoped that I could leave you with a positive vibe, with a ‘Happy’ song.
And then I come back to my blog this morning to find this: beautiful, heartfelt, incredibly supportive, caring and loving messages left by so many of you since Friday and over the weekend. I’m taking a step back to take it all in and wondering how can I thank you all enough for what you and your messages mean to me…how can I adequately express to you how I feel right now? My heart is exploding with gratitude, I am thankful beyond measure…
Even when I can’t be up and joyful and bright and breezy (which actually I far prefer because the physical and mental toll of the kind of exhaustion I sometimes succumb to
is far-reaching and extremely unpleasant sucks big-time) you sent me messages, ‘cyber’ phone calls, you took my hand, told me it’s all gonna be alright, offered your support, your smiles, your hugs, your sunshine and your love. And you danced with me.
So I’m making my way back to you now… although I’m very behind with blogging and I won’t be able to return until later today. When I do, I will reply to your lovely comments individually and catch up with your blogs. Then back to posting. Until then, this is all I can say:
Thank you so much, I love you guys 🙂
