Thank you for being my Cyber Family!!

This week has been such a hard week in Blogland!!  Stormy is such a gifted writer... we all care so much about what happens with her and her family!  We all care so much for her and the tough time that they are having it has given me writers block... no, it's not her fault that I don't know what to write about... I have just been so caught up in the feelings and the emotions that go with having a blog.

We lay our thoughts, feeling and opinions out on the line for people to either comment on kindly or be stomped on.  I've only had a couple of freaks comment on my posts and so I just deleted them.  Those are not the posts I want to address.  I want to address all of the wonderful people who follow and comment on my blog!

I want to say thank you to all of you wonderful people who make me feel understood.  So many times in ttwd its hard to find people in real life  that we can talk to about the things we struggle with.  How hard would it be to talk to my mom ( who is a dear friend who I share most everything with)  that S isn't consistently spanking like I think he should.  She would have a fit!!!  My best friend if she knew that I consider S the boss and his hand always wins.  She may have me committed!!

You dear ladies... yes, there are a few men... are my extended family, weather you want to be or not!! LOL You are the people who I can spill my guts to... tell my most intimate thoughts to... cry on your shoulder and celebrate in wonderful break throughs!!  You don't care where I live, what I do, who I know or anything... you read what I write... you feel it... you still care for me... I care for you because of it!  Better in some ways than real life family.  I'm not talking about our kids and our husbands... I'm talking about the other family members that we have who are so judgmental

Now don't get me wrong... I love my family... all of them... but there is a difference between love and like.  I have a sister who fights with everyone.  If it were just me, I'd look deep and think maybe it is me.  She can't get along with my other siblings... our parents... extended family members are not out of her venomous reach.  She is even in her early 40's and she is on her 4th marriage.  She is not easy to get along with.  We all have people in our lives like her... I'm sad to say.

Then there are my dear friends here in Blogland.  You are so compassionate... kind... caring...thoughtful.  Full of advice... things to consider... reaffirmations... you are all so good to me.  I know we all care about each other... a bunch of friends sitting around, drinking coffee.. chatting about ttwd... learning about the best way to submit to our HOH.... and all the other wonderful things there are to know about DD.  Less than a year ago we started our journey down this road and I have learned so much from all of you!  It would have taken a lifetime to learn everything that I have learned from you dear friends in this short time.

With all the emotions floating around here these days... helping our friends with their struggles... and I just want to say thank you for all the help you have given me... in my struggles with ttwd... in all the confusion... I know where to go when I need to get an honest heartfelt answer.

Thank you for being my Cyber Family!  You all rock!!! **huge hugs**

  5. We all really need to be here for each other......I mean, you are so right, who else do we have to talk to about this stuff?
