A special thanks to Valerie!
She's a long time (like 10+ years) internet friend.

We "met" on an old AOL board and we've also become blog BFF's.

I really want to thank her for her comment on yesterday's blog post.
She wrote: Sounds like things are going great-well, except for that "tropical disease" and the plague. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

Now, we all know it was a little tongue in cheek.
But I chose to take it literally.
And she right.
Things ARE going great!

It's been a little bit difficult at my house this week in that there is a lot of outside drama going on.
It doesn't involve me, my husband or even any of my own kids.
But it has taken A LOT of my time and emotional energy.
I have probably spent 20 hours this week on negative projects.

So Val's comments (I'm calling her Val because we are such close friends! ;) ) rang home and reminded me that as far as what is important - my family - things ARE great!

I AM blessed.
Right now, everyone is in a good spot.
Everyone is happy and basically heathy (no one is dying yet).
Everyone is where they are supposed to be and doing what they are supposed to be doing.
I DO have a great life!
Thank for the reminder!

That's so awesome to have an online friend for over 10 years! I think you and I have now known each other online for over a year now..time passes quickly!

I've got some internet friends that I've been "friends" with for almost 15 years -- we met on an old AOL board too. My IRL friends who have a life outside of the computer (ha ha!) don't get me when I call them friends, but they totally are. Glad you and Val have each other.

I hope this week goes better for you, hugs.
