Thank you to Special Friends and Merry Christmas

Special Friends

Friendship is important
to all Creatures
This post may be somewhat similar to my last post,
 but I can not tell you how very much I appriciate all of you,
and how thankful I am for your friendship.

My place of peace and strength

I am not sure if it is the season, or the fact that I miss my husband so very much, that has me feeling so sentimental.

But for what ever the reason, tonight I sit here listening to a relaxation CD of Ocean waves and rereading some of my first few posts
So many changes have take place in my life since those first posts.
When I first found the Taken in Hand website, that lead me to all of you, I was so unsure, and afraid of what the reaction would be.
Never in my life have I ever trusted anyone as I did all of you.
 Nor allowed anyone to know so much about me.
I am so grateful that I did. I made many new and wonderful friends during those first post.
I grew. I gained the courage to search for the true me, and gained the confidence to embrace the changes in my live, and to accept the guidance of my friends.
I said good bye to some people from the past with no regret.
Met someone very special who became my friend, and then my husband, my best friend and soul mate.
With the welcome and acceptance that I received from you, a fair sized crack appeared in my protective shell.
It did not take my new husband long to completely destroy my protective shellcompletly, and to teach me that I was not alone, and never would be again, and that I was truly safe with him, and always would be.
My Sailor and I are two of a kind. both very stubborn, and strong willed.
He is the only one that knows how to handle me. He knows my stengths and weaknesses
We may be apart now due to his work, but the bond that we share strengthens each and every day.
We both thrive on challenge, and this is just one of many that will come our way.
I look forward to sharing those challenges as they come about.
But in the meantime, I want to Thank all of you for being a very important part of my life thus far,
For sharing my growth and sharing your lives with me.
Merry Christmas to you and yours and the Very Best to all in 2010

I'm sorry your sailor husband wont be with you for Christmas Lil Sam but it wont be long before you'll be together soon.

I hope 2010 is a healthy, happy and prosperous one for you both.

Lil Sam: It's great to see you blogging again and it's wonderful that you found your husband and soul mate.

And even though you weren't able to be together for Christmas, I hope you have many special times together and that you have a new year to remember.

I remember when you first started your blog and you must be very happy that things have worked out so well. Good luck. And thanks for posting on my blog.
