Good morning my fellow EXer's!
This weekend 18 EXer's and their families will desend on Nashville!( The place may never be the same) But, this is about a lot more than that! This is a personafication of what we live everyday at this site! 18 EXer's will be there in the flesh, but you will be traveling with us! What do you think our conversations will be about? They will be about you! They will be about the ways that we help each other! They will be about the great days, and the horrible days that we EXperence in our quits! There will be a sharing of ideas! All that will make us better at helping each other in our quits! I can not tell you how many of you will travel in my heart! Nor, can I tell you how many will travel in the hearts of the other 17! What I can tell you is that you will all be there!
For the ones of you who have attended one or both of the previous EX get togethers, you will be missed! And you will be a part of our discussions and rememberences! Cindy, Teddy,and Pattycake, this will be the first one that you have missed! But you will be there! I promise that I am bringing you with me! Misty Dawn! You were the other charter member of these events! You will be there in my heart also! There will be a big number of people who are attending for the first time! I am EXcited about the idea of seeing the joy on their faces!!
I want to thank Smorgy in advance for keeping the Freedom Train on the tracks, and organizing a potluck for those of you who can't physically be in Nashville! I hope everyone will take part in that event!
The point I want to make here is, we know that you will think about us being in Nashville together this weekend! But for all the times you think of us, there will be at least 18 times that we think of you! And next year, I hope you will be composing a blog for the ones who will be coming to our get together in your heart! Let the feelings you have this weekend give you strenght in your quit, and let them motivate you to find a way to join us next time in person!
Love to all! Live Free! Live Smoke Free! Tommy
