Oh my gosh, its amazing how fast and strong the feelings pour out of me after reading this whole thread, even though I've been away for almost a year now.
I write this with tears in my eyes.
My dearest friend Linda Lou, I hope you know how much you mean to me, its so much more then a poetry friend, you are all that's right with this world and all thats right with humanity in general.
I am soo sad right now, but I am going to just put that to the side and think only of positive and healing thoughts for you.
Now listen, you better get well, and get well soon okay??
We need you Linda.
We always have, and we always, will.
A great, big, giant hug to you sweet friend
I want you to extend your arms out and grab hold of the two hands on either side of you, we are all in one big loving circle, sharing with you our our most sincere concern and healing thoughts and prayers... can you feel it... somehow I just know that you can.
Close your eyes, and just take it all in, one of the best things that can help you right now will be the power and will of just knowing how much and how many people truly care and love you.
You will be better soon, I just know it.
And besides... I haven't had a hug from you in so long that you have to get better so you can remedy that as well )
Rest my lovely friend, we'll talk to you soon!!
Thank you so much Shannon for being there for your mother, and for us as well, and thank you too Diana for all that your doing for our dear friend you are both very special!
And Margherita my wonderful friend, thank you for emailing me and letting me know whats going on, I am truly indebted to you, as I've always been!
