My friends Rock. They Seriously do.


 Well, well, well. One again I am blown away by the generosity of my friends. I put a call out, just the other day.  Less than 48 hours ago actually. Which, by the way, was SO  difficult to do for me, the asking for help part, and what happens? You all came through, and then some.

And I know for a FACT that many of you were in no position to do so and really shouldn't have but you did anyway. You got behind something near and dear to me, to my family and you supported us. I have seen it time and time again. My marathon fundraising, my children's fundraising efforts, Zoey's Heart Blanket project, Mission iPossible. Whatever it has been, there you all have been. And if not monetarily, then in loving words of support in emails, messages, phone calls and posts on your own spaces out here on the great, big, bad, worldwide web. Amazing. Simply amazing. All of you.

I have this dream you know, of a gathering, of all my blog buddies. Meeting face to face. Hugging you all. Thanking you in person for all of this. Whatever this is. Because I have difficulty explaining the ties that bind us her in cyberland. But if you dwell here, you know exactly what I am talking about.

Would that gathering, that party, that sit down, not be the best thing? Ever. I am going to just keep dreaming it and maybe, someday, it will come to be.

Till then, my humble heart thanks you all, the only way I can , from this keyboard. It will have to do. For now at least.

What about a blog buddy retreat? New Mexico? Santa Fe? Ojai?

I am just hoping that when we all do finally come together it isn't for a funeral. Elizabeth's idea is good, a blog buddy retreat.

You are so right bloggy friends rock. Our dear friend's 16 yr old was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma. UGH cancer stinks. Thanks for all you guys do to advocate!

To quote my friend, Emery,
"It's just a little less beer money."
Ha! Ha!
I'm glad that I can help in your valuable fundraising efforts. (I don't drink much beer anyway.) :-)
