While doing the housework, it hit me like a bolt of lightning that there are a few thank yous that I have never gotten around to saying and feel that if I don’t write them down now, I’ll never get them out.
Jen T.: By some stroke of luck, we ended up in the same methods courses together. Since the first day in class, I was intimidated by you. Why I didn’t learn until much later. You are a brilliant lady who has persevered through many trials and tribulations, but has always come out strong. You’re a great teacher who students love and cherish. I look up to you more than I do to any of my peers. Thank you for always being there to bounce ideas off from and to complain to about my crafting disasters.
Desi G.: We went to the same school for how long and never really talked? All throughout high school you were one of the popular girls. I always wanted to be you. I always wanted to live your life. I always wanted to be your friend, but I never had the guts to talk to you. Our friendship started simply by a simple IM on a religious forum that neither of us thought we would find each other on. Since then, you have been one of my closest friends. I didn’t realize that you felt similar until you sent me an invite to your wedding. :-) I’m glad that we’ve forged this friendship, but I would be fibbing if I said I wasn’t nervous about the first chance we get to sit and have coffee together. Online I see you as a peer, but in my mind’s eye, I still see you as Desi Violette, a popular girl that I have no chance of ever being friends with. We really do need to get together some day and dispell that myth, don’t we? Thank you for being the “surprise” friend that has helped me through some of the hardest times. I really do with we lived closer.
Grammy: Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I know you will probably never see this post, but I need to write this out. Thank you so much for keeping all your craft books, tons of yarn, every knitting needle and crochete hook you every bought, and plastic canvas. Because of you I am a crafter. I have learned to crochete from Mom. I taught myself to knit. Now, I’m picking up any craft I can. Thank you for keeping that going in our family.
Joe: You have allowed me to take great strides to becoming the woman I thought I never would be allowed to become. Thank you, love. You have opened more doors for me than I think you believe possible. Without you, I would not be the person I am today. I love you with all of my being.
