I keep thinking of the list of things I have learned since starting this blog. There are so many it is hard to know where to start. One of those things though is for most on my mind today. People are people. Now there obviously differences in culture, religion…….. all of that is like icing on the cake. Yes, it is the part we/the world sees but really it is nothing more than an external cover for what lies beneath the cake itself. When it comes right down to it, it is the cake that matters, that which is contained within that icing as fancy or elaborate as it may be.
I have over the time of the blog receive comments from all over the world, from members of I imagine just about every major Faith there is out there. When it comes right down to it, PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE. The world is just full of wonderfully kind,loving and caring people. I have always known that but this experience has really re-enforced that in my head.
So very many people have graced me, blessed me with what has come to be thousands and thousands of kind warm supportive comment. I read and do so appreciate every one.
When I think of the comments many many names come to mind. One of those names is Mel now Mel stumbled upon the blog within just a few months of it starting and has been a constant blogging friend ever since. With her loving, supportive and so wise comments she has helped both me and I know many others through some tough times. Mel you have always been there for me and I can’t ever thank you enough. I am not sure if there is some way to check and it really doesn’t matter but I would guess Mel must have left us some thing in the area of 1,000 comments. Not all were directed to me often to others that honored us by sharing their own painful stories. Mel, you have blessed and touched the lives of so many.
Now is the time we can possibly in at least a small way show our gratitude to her for caring so much about us, for devoting countless hours to help us. Mel’s sister just had a cancer operation and by all accounts is doing as well as can be expected. Mel travelled to be at her sister’s side through this time and has only just returned home. Physically and emotionally she is worn out and culd really use some support.
I am asking for prayers please for all involved but also please stop over to her web site and leave even the shortest comment to let her know we are all thinking of her.
