Just for being there

I just wrote this in an email to our Ms Moon--

"Thanks for just being there. As the sun sets on 2009, know that you have been a great joy to me in this year, even from afar. Thinking of you."

And it occured me that these were words I could send out to all my (few) bloggers who have been reading about my journey, and have offered me words of encouragement, support, and wisdom along the way.

This blog has been an unexpected safe haven for me throughout this exceptionally difficult year. And, has provided a well of support through the changes it has brought.

So thanks to you all. And know that each of you have been a great joy to me, in your own special ways. Be safe tonight, and I am thinking of you all as I sit here on my first night in my new apartment, finally on my own after several weeks of transition. I'm arranging my bookshelves, washing my clothes, and enjoying preparing for my new start.

My dad told me tonight--you're ringing in the new year by living it.

I hope so.

I do.

I love that line from your Dad, ringing in the new year by living it. Yes, you ARE. I only recently found you but you are an inspiration to me. Glad you are in your new home, nesting, preparing for your fresh start.
I find Ms Moon to be a great joy too, and love that she'd let me to people like you.
Be well SJ.
Happy happy New Year.

And Kori, I dont think anything you ever say will sound trite to me! Thank you, as always, for thinking of me.

Yep. Your dad nailed it. That was an awesome thing to say. Are you enjoying arranging your things, getting all set-up in your new nest and space? I hope so.
All right. I'm tired. Love from here to there....
