I am profoundly moved by all of the outpouring of love and support that I have received from all of you. Every comment on posts or words of encouragement and love sent by text or card means more to me than you know. Thank you also to those who have so generously contributed to the GoFund me account, sent LEGOS and other activities for the boys, joined the Meal Train, delivered delicious dinners for us, and sent gift cards for meal deliveries, restaurants, or grocery stores.
One thing that I hear universally from those who have fought the battle against cancer (or are fighting it currently alongside me) is that “you will find out who your true friends are.” Many infer that you become aware of who gathers around you in support and who doesn’t—in particular, the latter. That both shocks and humbles me, as my experience has been such a flood of support. I feel so incredibly moved by all of the love I have received. I am blown away by the outpouring of people from all areas of my life. From elementary, middle, and high school friends, college, mommy friends, family, chosen family, my incredible work community, previous colleagues, friends of friends, new friends, and treasured friends for 20 or more years of my life.
It’s clichéd to say, but it feels like “thank you” just doesn’t seem like adequate enough words to express how incredibly grateful I am for each of you.
Thank you for standing by me and for sharing this journey with me.
On behalf of myself and the boys, thank you, thank you, thank you.
