What can I say? ...I am completely blown away by your warmth and kindness. As I collected my email messages earlier today I was taken aback by your well wishes, your kind words about Jenny, and thanking me for sharing with you (oh my! I should be thanking you!) I had a big lump in my throat as I read your comments (I didn't mean for you to reach for the tissues as well, I'm so moved that you did though) and I've been trying to figure how to respond... In the end I thought it best to be plain: Thank you so much for being a such lovely human being in taking the time to reach out to another human being. I feel both humbled and elevated at the same time. I am genuinely (daftly) happy most of the time, but it was wonderful to able be this honest with you about a vulnerability. You all came up trumps for me and you all knew how to say the right thing. I'm very lucky.
::UPDATE:: I just wanted to add that I'm sorry I can't reply to all of your comments on that post, I do feel bad about that because your comments were so meaningful and they would have taken emotion to write. All I can do is to thank every single one of you again for sharing with me, and for being so open yourselves. It will remain my most favourite and important post of all time...
