~~Your light is seen, your heart is known, your soul is cherished by more people than you might imagine. If you knew how many others have been touched in wonderful ways by you, you would be astonished. If you knew how many people feel so much for you, you would be shocked You are far more wonderful than you think you are. Rest with that. Rest easy with that. Breathe again. You are doing fine. More than fine. Better than fine. You're doing great. So relax. And love yourself today.~~ Neale Donald Walsch
Myabe tonight should be the time to thank those here who help you on your journey. Maybe it's time to let others know how you feel. Maybe it's time those special people actually get to hear that they are special.
Not because I want to "single out".....not because some here are better than others....not even because some pour their heart and soul into this site.
But because it's the right thing to do, even if I do it alone. Because people should hear how good they are while they are here rather than praising them after they are gone. Because we need to move past our own needs to look at others and say simply "thank you for shining your light here".
Giulia was the first so many years to speak to me here on Ex....thank you.
Rick was steady, dependable, funny, and we are friends still today...thanks, Superman.
Thomas who seems to spread his joy everywhere and to everyone....thanks, my friend.
Dale who can make anyone smile no matter how bad they are feeling and who is always catching us before we fall....thank you.
Sootie and Kathy and Teresa who are loyal, calm, and reflect everything good about this site...thank you.
BeeJay...omgosh, there aren't words, dear friend!! Thanks doesn't do it. My quit is definitely your fault :)
Tommy....love you to the moon and back, of course. Thank you for never giving up.
Some of you I met later but the impact is still there. Shawn, Wendy, Marilyn, Terrie, Terry, Jacqui....brilliance here on Ex. Jackie, I think we are kindred spirits but I still am in awe of your talents. Diane Joy, your faith inspires us all. Mike and Mike, you never waiver in your support of quitters. I'm sure I forgot some of the creative souls here who keep our quits fresh and alive. I don't mean to but I'm older than I was and it's been a long, exhausting month. I apologize in advance for those I didn't name...doesn't mean you aren't in my heart.
Thank those who mean something to you. Thank those who don't give up on you. Thank those who bring joy to your soul and light to your life. Feel free to thank them before the moment passes and you leave things unsaid.
