LJ friends  
I've been going around with such a heavy feeling in my heart recently. Sydney's doing much better and Mark & I couldn't be happier, Mark's Mom is taking it easy and seems to be recovering quite nicely from her surgery, but my heart has been breaking for a friend of mine that is going through a very difficult time these last two weeks. It's true that I've only known her for a relatively short period of time on LJ, but in the short time that I've known her, I've always found her to be a caring and very giving individual. Since a recent event has occurred in her life, however, she's been down and depressed, and being so far away makes me feel almost helpless. I read her entries and I feel for her because in some ways I know a little of what she may be going through and I want to tell her I understand, but it sounds so shallow coming from someone else at a time like this. I just wanted to send big *HUGS* her way and let her know I was thinking of her. And I think she knows who she is. ;)

In other LJ friends news, I was shocked and completely touched to see this when I came home from work yesterday. :) What a sweetheart Carrie is! And not only does it look exactly like Sydney, but Carrie somehow managed to capture the sparkle in Sydney's eyes that I love so much (and was missing for so long while she was sick). Thanks SO much again, Carrie - I totally love your drawing! :)

I'm almost coming up to a year since I've started this LJ account (December will be a year, I think) and I never would've imagined that I would've met so many wonderful people here. It's truly something to be able to share in the lives of others and allow them share in your life as well. I wanted to thank everyone on my friend's list for all the comments and all the advice this past year. You've all been wonderful and I can't imagine how differently (and empty) my life would've been if I hadn't I met you all here. Big *HUGS* to everyone!

Why thank you! and you're welcome! even though we haven't been LJ friends long well we've been there for each other. I guess that's what counts. =D

At least your friend has your support in her time of need. I would also like to extend my prayers for her and her family during this time.

I'm just so very glad you like the drawing. It makes me happy that you fill that I captured the sparkle in her eyes. You have no idea how much it means to me that you like it. I honestly haven't had anyone be so touched by one of my drawings. That means the world to me. Thank you Sheri. *HUGS*

I'm glad you came to my journal. I know I would really be missing out on such a wonderful friend if you hadn't. You have touched my life in so many ways, thank you so very much Sheri. :) *HUGS*

Thank you so much for your prayers for her, I'm sure she and her family really appreciates it.

And I'm still smiling about the drawing, Carrie. In fact, if you don't mind I want to save it as one of my memories. :)

I'm so glad that I found your journal when I did, Carrie. I can't imagine what it would've been like had I NOT known you these past seven months or so. Big, big *HUGS* to you! :)

Edited to add an important part of my comment that got lost when I went in to edit it. :P

I don't mind at all. In fact I'd feel honored. :D *hugs*

Hi Sheri,

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that you're referring to me. Thanks so much for writing about me in your personal journal. That really touched my heart.

You have been a TREMENDOUS help to me through this time. I know it may not seem like it when I post sad entry after sad entry, but if it wasn't for your encouragement, I wouldn't be posting ANY entries - I'd been too down in the dumps to even get out of bed!

You have been a real friend through all of this. I mean, I knew what a caring person you were even before all of this happened, but how much you've been there for me since this happened just reaffirmed all of that!

I am actually feeling much, much better over the entire situation. I was breaking down all of the time. I'm moving toward acceptance (I can't say that I'm QUITE there yet, but almost!) and I know that I'm going to go through all of these emotions again once he actually does pass away - but I think that from now until then, I'm really going to be okay.

BIG *HUGS* to you, Amanda! I'm so glad to hear you're feeling a little better about the situation, I've been so worried about you through all of this. You and Tom have been so great to us through all of Sydney's ups and downs and even with all that you guys were going through, you still cared so much about her - and that really warms my heart. I can't thank you enough for all of YOUR support, you guys have been wonderful friends to us. Please take care and big *HUGS* to you and your entire family.
