(Ten points to anyone who can name that cartoon!)
This blog project ends in 24 hours. My girlfriend has spent nine months sitting in front of a computer everyday, expressing thoughts, feelings, and insights about a time that wasn’t wanted, but happened anyway. Some healing took place, some friends were made, some laughs and tears were shared. This is not a closing blog (Marie gets to figure out how to do that tomorrow), this instead is a thank you. An award acceptance speech, so to speak. In today’s go-fast-to-go-faster mentality, sometimes a little gesture as a formal thank you gets overlooked. So I’m taking it upon myself to make sure it doesn’t get overlooked this time. With that being said….
Thank you Isreal, Canada, New Zealend, Northern Cali, Colorado, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York, and Del Mar.
Thanks for reading, thanks for being a part of this. Thanks for saying the things that I couldn’t bring myself to say, thanks for saying the things I didn’t know how to say. Thanks for laughing, thanks for crying. Thanks for the friendships. Thanks for the comments, the insight, the thought. Thanks for putting up with my last post, and this one. Thanks for the chocolate (pop rocks in chocolate, who knew – thanks in advance for sending more of that……I’ll send CLIF bars.) Thanks to the guys of the these amazing women, who let me know it’s ok to talk. Thanks for putting up with the short posts, the long posts, the silly posts, and the time-filling posts. Thanks for the memories. Finally, THANKS FOR THE LOVE.
I can go on, but really it can’t be put into words (or maybe it could, but I’m no Marie when it comes to writing). From the bottom of my heart, I hope that this blog these past nine months did as much for all of you as it has for us. I hope that one day we will all be in the place we want to be.
Thank you again,
