We say thanks.
Thanks for all the love and support from all corners of the earth.
Thanks for the trays of food, bouquets of flowers, and a cleaning service(!).
Thanks for the love of friends new and old, ones who focus on making us smile and ones that offer a shoulder for burdens.
Thanks for the phone calls, texts, emails, and instantaneous visits.
Thanks for being a rock, a shoulder, an advocate, a friend, a sister, a cousin, an aunt or uncle, or even a dance-off partner.
Thanks for the understanding and compassion.
Thanks for patience and prayers.
If you haven’t heard me utter these words directly to you yet, know that I mean them. Though the past ten days have been surreal, I am constantly taken aback by the utter goodness from hundreds of people. Despite the circumstance, you all lift us up.
And while random blog editing, I stumbled upon this post. How similar, in time, circumstances, and feeling, that March three years ago is to today.
May we never stop learning….even from ourselves.
