Good message for us all...

I know this is probably something that was posted before awhile ago. But, it bears repeating. I know it's pretty long, but I know it describes me well and am hoping you guys too. Lots of hugs.

I totally understand Womble! I think this might be a good one to share with a friend or two at work. I've fought hard to get where I am there and never call in sick. However, when I was in a two year long flare I probably should have. And was sent home once because of being in so much pain.

6'1" 200lbs of man, still that makes me tear up. I needed that, but I didn't know it till I read it. That is so very true.

Sorry to cause all the tears. If it helps any, I keep the above link in my favorites as a reminder. One that only we would understand.

I recently decided to move on and start a new relationship with someone whom I cared for for ages, and they are very surprised for the amount of love I display, saying that I'm "special".

This article made me cry -as it made most of us who read it, but to me this was the explanation of "special" I was labeled with. I was touched. Thank you so much for sharing this with us here.

I shared this with 4 people at work one of them being my store director who's actually more like my brother. He's off today and tomorrow, but we're together at work on Tuesday. So, we'll see what happens then. Kind of a big deal for me sharing it with a guy that's not my husband. That alone is a big step for me.
