WHAT IN THE SAM HILL!?!?!
I went over there and found and a bunch of fellow bloggers and online friends had made up an event for Hall & Oates and Christopher and I that had me in tears and disbelief. How is it possible that all these people that may or may not even exist in real life had given me such a gift? Psssst, I think they are real. And they are big lovely assholes. As in:
|Both of these were hand crafted by the lovely lady over at The Crumb Diaries|
There was the sweet -
|From a lovely lady who has been around for a long time and one of my favorite virtual friends.|
|from my dear friend at Don't Pet the Sweaty Stuff who knows my feeling on crocs. But how can you argue with this nonsense? You can't.|
Something political - hold on!
|From my dear Frugalista Blog|
And the risque!
|Does this give you an idea of the epic nonsense over there? It is FANTASTICAL. By the very talented Sooperdad Blog of Awesomeness photoshopped, OF COURSE. But that is my dear sweet dumpster husband and I. Badass, no?|
I mean, there were spazz dancing videos and pictures of all things related to babies and more specifically to Hall & Oates and my husband and I. I can't begin to share everything that was posted there, the love and the funny is something I will go back and look at over and over and over.
And her heart grew 8 sizes that day.
I am BLOWN AWAY by the kindness of strangers and yet, they're not really strangers if they know me so well now are they? The THING I LOVE THIS THURSDAY is this kindness. This generosity, this connection. These people actually read what I write and pay attention to what I love and what I'm about. When in the world did that happen? People were saying really nice things about me and my writing and I'm just in shock, really. So, I'm needing some time to digest it all and while I do, I wanted to share just a taste of what happened over there. Again, I have only scratched the surface on what went on over there, and I couldn't possibly post everything by everyone that was so lovingly thought out and shared there. FOR ME. I am so so so grateful for the people I've met through this blog. It's truly magical the connections we can form if we are open to it.
p.s. if you were not in on that shower, but want to send me virtual wishes or videos or pics, PLEASE DO! I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can always post to my wall on the Facebook Page.
