The big 40 today. It has been a very good start to this new year for me. Time with Jamie’s family leading into it. And with good friends the week before. FaceTime with my family today and a lot of good goodies delivered to my door. And quality relaxing time with Jamie and the kids.
I had thought of making this post a list of 40 things I’ve learned or some such. Instead, I think I’ll just take the opportunity to say thank you. To everyone who posted on the page, to everyone who texted or called, to everyone who Jamie got to write an email or note passing along your memories and wisdom, thank you.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your well wishes. For your thought and prayers. For your friendship. For your time. For being there.
Thank you for being a support in times when needed. For being a kick in the pants when that was called for too.
In America especially we like to think that the it’s still possible to be the lone wolf. The rugged individual in need of no one, pulling one’s self up by their boots straps.
But the truth is, I am who I am because of all of you. And for all you added to my life.
I tried to thank everyone who posted on Facebook, adding likes to the comments on other people’s posts and commenting back to those who posted on mine. If I missed anyone, I apologize and please accept my thanks.
It has been a great day, and hopefully the start of a great new year. I look at what all 39 brought and all the changes we went through. We are in such a different and better place now. I’m just excited to see what is next.
Again, thank you all. I love you and goodnight.
