Hey all you WONDERFUL Semi-Colons!!
Truly, my cancer compatriots, I am honored and humbled by your kind words and your love bestowed upon me.
I just now opened up a package and the tears started all over again......
Thank you so much for the plaque to hang on my wall above my computer. I so wish I had a big photo of y'all to go with it......maybe in Vegas. Barb, you'll just have to send one along. You too kanga and jen! (but keep the clothes on for this one ok kanga??) haha
I really am at a loss for words (that's a first!!) to convey to y'all how deeply this has touched me. Arthur is the only one privy (well, and Emma too last night) to my outburst of sobs as I read the thread last night and then today when I opened up the box. What a beautiful "award" and I LOVED the "Peace" dove. How wonderfully appropriate. Barb you must have had a good laugh on that one!! :-)
You all know I am a woman with a mission and so often have felt like the lone voice crying out. But not anymore......not for awhile now.....and with more voices we WILL be heard! We are a force to be reckoned with and I dream of a day when good, solid alternative nutritional healing will be implemented into a "normal" cancer protocol and be covered by insurance!! (NO MORE DONUTS AT THE CHEMO CLINICS!!!!)
THAT will be the day I will dance on the rooftops naked (just kidding--wanted to see if SB was listening) and SHOUT with joy!!!
Anyway, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for surrounding me with such love and support.
For those of you who are wondering what the heck I am talking about here.....a bunch of the semi-colons got together and honored me with a plaque sent by Barb.
SEMI-COLON HUMANITARIAN AWARD
