me know she cared. So... she is one of 'my special Facebook Friends'.... like the many people who reached out from their life here in the USA, and different countries to let me know their prayers were with me and... they just cared. They didn't have to.......... but, they did that. Even in the state of mind I was in... I would sit and read at all times of the day and night...........with tears streaming down my face 'drinking in' the caring and the feelings they all sent to me by emailing and commenting.
It meant the very world to me and with my husband, Skip, and my special friend, Lena in Sweden......... they were all my lifesavers tossed to me in that terrible sea of grief..and pain... so much pain. I grabbed hold of each just as you'd grab each bar on the
'Monkey Bars' on a school playground. I grabbed each one for dear life and... kept going, fighting to 'come back'.
I'm here because of Skip and our Pups, Ms Nancy and my Facebook Friends... and when I 'stepped back out into the world' and made new friends there (like Sara, Connie and Ann, Donna, Kenan and Linda and Rita... the list goes on..they are all connected and they know who they are when they read this). I don't get in their life nor they..in my life... but, we each are 'there..just enough'.
This is what I wrote in response to 'Susanne', my special Facebook Friend when she was asking me about my Blog and made me feel honored that she read it... she asked me about writing a Blog and if it should be about her, her life or be serious..or funny. This is what I 'Commented' back to her.....taking advantage of the new thing Facebook is doing now...................one can write thousands of characters which means 'more words' in their comments! I love that!
This is what I told her:
I have a feeling you'd write very well... plus be ..very entertaining. I sense you are fun and you could write about... anything. Write what you know best... I just write my way and what I know best.. my life. I don't bother to write in other people's words... I write in my own. I always write like I draw and paint......... freely and when I begin... I get 'lost' .. I'm even surprised when I come back to reality.. I look and look and hope it's all okay... if it's not... that's okay too.. I'm not perfect.. I'm me and won't pretend to be anything else. Yes, Susanne, I 'know' you could write about anything and probably write much better than I... I am always grinning at the comments you put on here.. you are witty and very smart! Why not just have fun? I know that I'm feeling excitement inside where I haven't before... maybe it's meant to do just this.. I've always wanted to write.. the people I thought should have always written a book, who are so much more educated and truly more intelligent and more witty and can write properly, haven't. These people are my husband and a cousin.. .... so.. I'm going to write and write and write... my way! :))) I will have several books published on my own just for my grandchildren, etc. .. at least. They will be able to 'see' a Granny Gee they haven't gotten to know in their life and I'll... be remembered by them... that's what is important to me. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.... 'this is my story and my story only'... it's no one else's. They have one all their own... their own life. Write, Susanne... I know you would be 'perfect' at it. :)))))))
