What a week! Well, what a week and A HALF! I've been wondering about what to write but I think I know. I want to take a few minutes to tell Betsy, Barb, John, LINDA (MY DEAREST AZCUPCAKE) G-Ma and all the others who so steadfastly believed in me and urged me to come back THANK YOU. Most of you know the circumstances that unfortunately took place, why I left, so I won't go back into those. I am just so happy to be back amongst you all.
I have to admit, at first, I was upset that I lost all of my blogs, points, goodies, etc. But nothing compared to feeling like I lost all of my wonderful friends. You guys are really the bread and butter that kept me going for the last year and a half. John, you have been THEE best brother that anyone could have. Your encouragement, your faith, your love of reminding me that I'm a klutz, got me through some of the most difficult times. Barb, you've been one of the greatest little sisses ever. You're the only person other than me that gets excited about explosives. I love it! But, BITE ME, okay? Bets, you and I have an appointment with the Gypsy Queen Cruise Line and I get first dibs on the TOILET. Eulla Belle and Krissie say so. G-Ma. Do you know how much respect I have for you? I can't believe how much emotion we had during that time I got out of hand. I'll never forget my daughter taking your side, LOL! I love you to pieces; after all, you ARE my SparkPeople lover. :)
AZ, you have been the voice of reason. I'm not saying the others weren't, but Linda, you have a way of making me feel calm during the storm. I can only imagine the steadiness of your voice, the warm tone, the firm yet gentle reassurance in your demeanor as I read your words. I feel like we've shared so much with one another, yet we haven't gotten the chance to meet yet. HURRY UP AND COME summer of 2011...the day Phoenix will never be the same again!! I can hardly wait until we squeeze the beloved goobers out of one another and tear up the town. You are one of the most beautiful people I know.
To my Victorious Secret team... it seems like only yesterday that John and I wanted to come together and make a place for you to come. Your prayers, your faith, your belief in me is what brought me home to you.
I love you all dearly, from the bottom of my heart. Amazing grace, that's what this is...God bless you, each and every one of you.
