thank you, friend

Thank you, friend...such a simple thing to say.  But I really mean it.  Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes and for knowing what it means for a girl to miss her daddy.  Thank you for getting me and all my melancholy thoughts lately.  It will get better and lighter and my days will fill with sunshine but in the meantime...thank you.

Blogging friends are simply the best.  My blogging buddy turned real life friend sent me this pick me up package.

Thank you, Debbie.  Your kindness was just what I needed today.  Thank you sweet blogging friends, for letting me vent and grieve and for just being there..just like a friend should.

Anyone who says women can't be loyal and supportive and loving obviously doesn't blog.

I'm off for a girl's day with my sister in law and her good friend.  A little lunch and some shopping, wish you all could join us.

Have a great weekend.  See you on Monday.

xo, Patty

  2. When I started blogging seven months ago, I had absolutely no idea of the amazing level of support I was tapping into! When I want to share something, my readers are one of the first things that pop into my mind. We all really like you Patty and it's so nice that you take us into your confidence when you hit a rough patch. ~ Maureen
