"You are THE Strongest Person I Know"

First and Foremost, I'd like to apologize for taking so long to write and that this will be a little short one as well. Again, I am sorry. I have undergone two surgeries, and I'm still having trouble. They are still looking for a problem with maybe my spine... and my legs are not strong at all. It feels like all of this is so hard to take.

Sitting here tonight with one of my good friends, (I am on medication for the pain and I look awful or I'd post the most recent pictures they always take of me) deep in my heart I know why they are doing it. But out of the blue, she turned to me and said, I want you to know that "You are The Strongest Person I Know.." and it means the world to me that I'm your friend. Again, I know this should probably be in a "private" blog, but I haven't written in SO long and I can feel how much I miss you all. Thank you for all the emails and well wishes. You are all very strong to me. It's funny how we see ourselves. I see myself as weak. I feel weak and I'm just sad right now. I do have BOOK REVIEWS that NEED to go up and I DEEPLY APOLOGIZE to my authors that have trusted me to get these out. It was YOU, my family and friends that have kept me HAPPY and in a better place when I need it. I thank each and every one of you.

...You haven't stopped praying, loving, or caring and that means the WORLD to me.

Your reviews will be up soon...

And for me...this year..."Yes Virginia, there IS a Santa Clause"! I get to spend another year with the ones I LOVE!

Happy Reading!



  1. Hugs my dear! I'm here reading your words; keep thinking those strong, energetic, calm and pleasant happy thoughts and keep reading so we can read your reviews! More hugs, Care

  2. Oh Care,

    You are so sweet and always here when I need a kind word. I promise to have them up soon...I always feel so so weak and usually just plain worn out and tired.

    xo I miss you

  3. I wrote you through an e-mail and hope you received it. You truly are the strongest person I know and courageous.


  4. I read your post back on 11/11, but I was hoping I could come up with something better to say, but I haven't. So here 'tis:

    We still love you and think about you! You just work on getting better. :-)


  5. I wanted to drop by and wish you an awesome Thanksgiving. :)

  6. I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and to send best wishes for a great holiday season. Take care.

  7. Maddie, Trish, J.Kaye, and Rebecca, thank you so very much for giving me so much to be thankful for even though I am fighting so hard. Health and Happiness to you all in the new year. Reading has taken me away from all the badness that I have had to endure and of course you and your blogs...I may not comment, but I do follow and read.

    I love you all and thank you for accepting me in this wonderful group of book bloggers. I couldn't ask for much more.

    I love my friends and family and wouldn't give them up for the world.

  8. It's very hard to think of ourselves as strong when we feel so weak and tired. I know this from experience. The best thing you can do for yourself is try to keep your spirits up and laugh. Read a good comedy or watch a few on tv. Laughter really does help you feel better and it can help you forget how you feel if you don't feel well. You are as strong as you need to be. :-)

    Take care of yourself. My prayers are with you.
