Today I am writing this spontaneously because I’ve been thinking about it over the last few days and just need to write it out.  First off I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve had a tough few months, and there are a few more ahead.  However, what I want to focus on in this post, is how my friends, online and off, have been so amazing.

I have local friends who’ve checked in with me and sent me cards, offered me lifts and come to my house to keep me company.  Sometimes their kindness has been so touching I’ve nearly cried.  But I also want to mention YOU.

You see, the online blogging community is always there to cheer me up and cheer me on.  I love commenting on blogs, taking part in Twitter chats, and being inspired by all of you bloggers out there.  I’ve made some really great friends through blogging and I can’t tell you how I appreciate you all.

I also find that snail mail has brought some great ladies into my life.  I know that some of my penpals will be friends for many years to come and that makes me so happy.

An emotional post but a happy one too!
