How True

This will be just a shortened version.  During all the hard times I have had over the past 2-3 years, this past year especially, I have found out that the ones whom I thought were my friends, really aren't.  People have done some pretty harsh and low things to me, and yet, I have prevailed.  I have become a stronger person out of those experiences (or so I like to think), and I am still learning, as today proved yet another brick wall for me.  During this time, I have managed to find the love of my life, who has been there for me through everything, standing right by my side, and never failing me.  For that, I am grateful.  For my children, I am grateful.  And to Kathryn, my newfound friend, even though I haven't met you in person yet, I am and will be forever grateful to you, just for the caring and kindness you have shown to me.  You do not realize how important you have become.  And as you say, I hope that isn't too creepy. (lol)  But during all of the stresses in my life right now, my honey, my kids, and you, Kathryn, have kept me going, even when you did not know what was really going on.  You put a smile on my face when I am down.  You make me laugh when I want to cry.  You give me one more good thing to look forward to.  For that, and many other reasons, I am grateful.  So yes, I do believe people come into your life for a reason.  I'm not always sure what those reasons are, but I try not to question them.  I just know that whoever enters my life has a purpose in it, and for that, I am grateful.  (I just wish we weren't so far away, cause by the time I travel 2500 miles, the coffee might be cold.)  Thank you, Kat.

My Sweetest Kel,<br />
I didn't even know this was here, failing to see my keyboard through my grief this past week. You have become one of the most important people in my life. It's amazing how we found our friendship on a wing and a huge prayer. I didn't think I would come across someone who has made me laugh,cry,(in a good way), and feel as thought of as you. I thank EP for being here because I never would have met you, well typed you...or come to find an amazing person and friend as you.<br />
Thanks Kel, you make my world better.

i hope i could also meet wonderful people here....

i love that u express so many times how grateful you are. because at the end of the day, no matter how big or small we are, how good or bad life seems, the gratitude we have is what makes our experiences so much richer.

yes some wonderful people we met on here
