A Note of Thanks

To those of you who reached out to me with expressions of support and concern after my “Ashes” post, you have my deepest gratitude. I’m incredibly touched by your kindness! You’ve been kinder to me than my family has been these past couple of years. So again, thank you – for the recommendations of Keranique and other products for hair loss, for sharing your own personal ordeals with family strife, and for assuring me that I don’t deserve to be taken for granted by people who are supposed to love me. These communications really, really help. During difficult times we all seek sources of strength wherever we can find them. My friends, my blog readers, my church, and my art modeling work make for a fine support system. Oh and Jessie the cat! She’s done her share by bringing me smiles and purrs on a daily basis 🙂

I’m getting out of town for the day on Saturday for a much needed change of atmosphere. But I’ll see you all right back here very soon. I wish you all grace and peace …

    Glad you were able to get away — even if it was only for the day. And you’re right, you do have some great support — although I do suspect that most cats would willingly trade their humans for a chance to lie on the precise point on the bed where the sunlight falls. But I’m sure that Jessie isn’t “most cats”. 🙂

    And I do like the drawing — thank you for sharing it.

      Bill,

      You’re right, Jessie isn’t ‘most cats’! In fact, she’s the greatest cat in the world. That’s not an opinion, that’s an objective truth!

      Thanks for your comments and, as always, your support. Glad you like the drawing!

  2. I sure hope you hope you had much fun on your jaunt outta town . . . and I hope you didn’t get too close to any death-eyed buffaloes!

    • Just reread my note . . . too many “hopes” in there. And now I hope, that at some point in the future, I can find out what it is like not to be a dumb-ass.

        Todd,

        If there’s a word to use multiple times, even by mistake, ‘hope’ is a good one! And I did have a really wonderful, memorable time on my jaunt out of town 🙂

        Thanks Todd!
