Hello All,

I just wanted to share a little of my day with you.

I wasn't having the most fabulous day today, woke up with not much energy, knowing that I had a long day ahead of me. I had to squeeze extra clients in because I"m taking off tomorrow for my day of doctor appt.'s and my semi annual pft and hall walk, so that is weighing heavy on my mind. I was in the middle of my day, in the middle of a haircut, when the front door opened and a man comes in and announces, "I've got something for Vee!" First off, not many people here in Michigan call me Vee, and the ones that do, I work with. So I turn around to see the most beautiful Fall bouquet and a nice little note saying "You are loved" .........How sweet. It was signed Michele. yes the Michele that is here on these sclero boards. All the way from Georgia. I met her on these boards, and I can't tell you how much those flowers got me thru the rest of my day! I feel so blessed to have her and all of you guys in my life. And even though I have met Michele face to face already, just having those flowers in my hands, something real to hold from my cyber family, made all of you soooo real at that moment. I can't describe the feeling so well, but it was awesome.

So Michele! THANK YOU! YOu mean sooo much to me, and are an important part of my life.
Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Vee,

What a great story! I wish we could all get together somewhere for a week long retreat. Wouldn't that be fun?

Imagine us and our families taking over a whole resort somewhere WARM and just socializing, relaxing, eating, swimming, golfing, boating......and generally being papmered and waited on hand and foot. Of course it would all be FREE and when we got home someone would have come and done all our chores for us and everything would be all clean and caught up.

And we would do it every year, like a sclero cyber family reunion!

*sigh*

Guess I got a bit carried away.... :o :P

Glad you could meet your cyber friend in the flesh!
Love ya,
Barefut

I think I will join you all at that dream retreat. Sometimes I feel like escaping into something some soft and warm. It would be nice to have someone to talk to when I go there! Vee, what a lovely surprise for you - doesn't it feel great to know that someone out there really cares about you? :)
Warm wishes,
Jefa
