One of the greatest feelings I can imagine experiencing is that of feeling validated and loved ...at the same time. That's how I've felt all week.
When I published this post on Monday, I knew I was really leaving myself vulnerable to the wrath of the inter-webs and those who feel that hiding behind a screen makes it ok to put others down. Luckily, the only feedback I have received has been uplifting and comforting. Thank you for that. And thank you for the inspiring personal stories from those who have had similar experiences. Also, thank you for the many wonderful book recommendations. And thank you for bringing life to my words through reading and sharing them. You're all just great. Now go have a wonderful weekend in this gorgeous weather (sorry if you don't live where the weather is gorgeous right now. Have fun anyway. Make some cookies -and send me some).
