Shelter Shelter (Photo credit: Iddin)

This community has provided me with a sense of shelter from so much trauma.  You have helped me see that I can handle so much more than I thought.

You have made me laugh when I thought I had no laugh in me.  You have helped me cry when I thought I was unable to cry.  You have thanked me for things that you do.  You have helped me feel worthy.

I can't believe (yet) that my posts have helped people.  I'll get there.  You have listened without judgment.  You have provided a support group I didn't know existed.  I needed that unconditional support.  You have put your thinking caps on when I couldn't.  You have sent me resources I didn't have the energy to find.

You don't judge me when I say I haven't called yet.  You send hugs.  You send virtual peaches and tell me I'm worth the food.  You chat when you have your own challenges.   I promised I would blog about the positive, so here I am.

Saying "Thank You."

Always, il
