i'm sure there are more eloquent, or more flowery ways to say it, but it really just comes down to "thank you."
it's just that simple.
for the emails.
for the comments.
for the virtual hugs.
for the links to funny things to cheer me up.
it hasn't exactly been a banner year for my family. and you guys have been there through the ups and the all-too-frequent downs. i appreciate you all more than i can ever really express.
now that the initial shock has worn off, i'm doing much better. we're resolved. we're planning. we're laughing. my sister is coming to dc this weekend to see a specialist for a second opinion. we're moving. we're breathing in and out.
it's going to be fine. not necessarily easy. but fine.
thank you for everything.
