I have met many wonderful people through OUCH and the other internet resources for clusterheads, however I am still reeling from several SPAOKS (spontaneous acts of kindness). Nowhere else have I ever encountered this to such a degree and they moved me to tears (privately) each time.. and continue to whenever I start to think about them. (Tearing up now as I type, yet again!)
Firstly, Ken and Leesa, a couple that provide a solidity and stability in this world and can balance it with humor that diffuses the toughest of situations. They afforded me such generosity with a means to relieve my pain. Still stunned!
Then Mary, at the door prizes ceremony, INSISTING that I take HER prize, which was undoubtably the best prize there was. It sits in the best position on my desk, looking like Prince Charles a little, but reminding me what a gentle darling she (Mary) is. What did she get to take home? I hope she did not leave empty-handed. Still stunned!
And finally now, Dear Warren and Bonnie, what a lovely couple. A true testament to the potential of love and the perfect symbiosis of two human beings. They sent me something from Canada. Something I just happened to mention I like.. nothing fancy, nothing special, but something that went deep to the core of my heart (and stomach!!) when I opened the package. A little melted from the Florida heat, but no less yummy. Not to mention a beautiful picture of my sister and I. Still Stunned!
To all of you, how can I repay your thoughts and actions of kindness? So unwarranted, so unprovoked... so moving and kind!
At least, I offer my thanks, my TOTAL appreciation, my gratitude and above all my support for you and my love for your friendship. If EVER I can do anything for you, please ask! I will unquestioningly go to task for you guys.
