    "The Tribe Has Spoken"

    Well, I have to tell you that I needed some of your reassurance yesterday...the fiery passions of you all honeys out there just warmed my heart to no end.  And I needed that.

    Yesterday, was a little bit of a detour, but I'm back on track now....determined now to finish it to the best of my abilities.  It has been very emotional to write this post...as I have to intimately feel what I'm trying to emote.  Been some tears going back through this, I can tell you.  And I'm sure it will transfer over to your heart if I've done my job right.

    I'm going to give you a heads up...this will be my longest post ever...double the length of anything I've ever written....it looks what I've actually done is write a chapter in my follow-up book, LOL!   The first one went so well:)

    But, that's how you have to see it....like a chapter due to its length...though I'm willing to bet you that the words will fly by and it won't feel like work for you to read it...

    I'm excited about this one...and I don't get too excited about too much anymore...and that's why I opened this post...because I wanted as many of my friends to show up as possible.

    Is it so wrong to want to have your friends present on occasion?  I can't pay you any higher compliment than for me to tell you that I want you here with me...even if only for a moment.  I care for you...I share with you...and I just want to see that smiling mug of yours.  I want you in my life at least for this reading.  I so strongly value your input and my words ring hollow like the echoes off a canyon wall if the people I want to reach are not there.

    I just want us to be together for a little while...new old, friends, soon to be friends...I want you...I need you...I have needs too:)

    Okay, I said it....

    And if I'm wrong...then, I don't wanna' be right.

    Maybe next week now...I'll probably melt down over the w/end...I've got about 18 hours worth of writing into it so far...so it's not lightweight by any means.  May take close to that to finish it, LOL!

     

    Haven't posted here

    Haven't posted here yet....been mostly on my kindle fire lately and such a pain to post a reply.  This little guy (16 mos old) is quite a handful and I'm finding it hard to do much of anything that doesn't involve chasing him or picking up after him!  God must have a sense of humor...here I am at 44 yrs old with a teenage daughter, pre-teen son newly diagnosed with diabetes, a 16 month old tornado and husband with Stage 4 cancer...hard to believe at times.  BUT I look forward to reading all of your posts and I do get to read...just not always reply.   You are a good guy to take the time to keep coming back here and calming us new folks.   It's appreciated!

    Jen:)

    I definitely want you here for this...whenever your hectic schedule permits. 

    I usually look for a couple of folks with each wave of news folks that wash across our shore...and you and Chelsea71 are too that I've really wanted to talk too.

    You and Chels helped inspire me to write this post...and it's because I do want to try and help you with the limited means I have available.

    I have a soft spot for the Caregivers...

    If you can't respond...I get it...and thanks for telling me...I would have probably been hurt:)  but only because I value your presence...and your response. 

    I'm hopeful that it will be of value to you...not that I really know anything, LOL! LOL! LOL!

    Hello Craig

    I told you a while ago that you have inspired me to be open with others about my battle with crc. And to write from my heart. 

    I'm willing to bet that you inspire MANY others as well.  

    And then when you think of each of these people reaching out to others, and so on, and so on...  

    The ripples in the pond have surely reached thousands!

    You truly have made an impact!

    And I for one feel blessed to have read your posts!

     

    God has Blessed you with a special skill.

     

    THANK YOU CRAIG FOR SHARING YOUR HEART WITH US!

     

    Your fan,

    Phil

    Ps. I'll be one of the first to buy your book!

     

    Pss. I'm still writing my blog thanks to you.

    What's Up, Big Guy?

    Phil,

    When I mentioned that I look for several new people in every wave that crashes ashore here...I mentioned Jen2012 and Chelsea71....and I also wanted to include you, Phil in this bunch....and I don't want to forget "Barbebarb" either. 

    Positive influence has been such a newfound experience for me these past four years.  To think that one could make a real difference in someone's life?  When people look to you for inspiration..or turn to you for counsel, I must tell you...I don't think there is a more sacred bond that is shared between two human spirits...I really don't.

    And it takes on special meaning coming from a non-familial source...like someone you've met.

    Because, then people view you through a new light...a light that is not filled with prejudice...as they have to take you straight up, as who you are...and how you comport yourself. 

    And then, the validation that we exchange between one another acts as a sort of life compass - that lets us know that we are pointed in the right direction. 

    Hey, all of this...and I haven't even woke up good yet, LOL!

    Let me just also that I truly feel blessed from knowing you so far...because, you have the insight to see in others what you are discovering yourself...it's a buzz, isn't it?

    You and I should really talk more in the future...I'd like to talk with you about a couple of things...both of us might grown deeper roots from it...

    I am following your story still...know you're "itching" to get off the Tux...who can blame you?

    Hang in Phil...good things will be coming for you...I see the winds of change of you....I see the seeds being planted for your Personal Growth...and when Spring comes and its time to bloom.....well, those are the days worth fighting for:)

    I think you are really going to like this post, Phil...I can already tell you that it will speak to you.  Because, I recently read of you speaking about how Cancer "robs" us...and part of my tale is what, when, and how much cancer did that to me...I think it's going to resonate with you...I think it will help to placate your fears and bring you some sense of peace.

    And that's the transformation that I'm personally waiting for:)

    Okay Craig

    Just so you know I can be an emotional big guy. Cry

    I try to be as even keeled as I can, but sometimes the pumps leave me a little tilted.

    I am truyly looking forward to your release.

    Love to you my brother!

    Coming Today Now!

    Hey everybody!

    I'm editing now...I was so consumed, I just had to finish this off and clear my head....I am wrung out!  I would have been gripping all weekend and into next week...so I knocked it out...all in all about 32 hours worth of writing and thought....brought to you, courtesy of The Sundance Channel - Story Matters Here.

    Cool

    I wrote it like I wrote my book...so if you like this style, then you (would) like that.

    It is long, but it seems to be flowing like wine...of course, I'm biased, LOL!

    I decided to make it one long post instead of trying to break it up...life can get in the way and some folks might not be able to get back to it...and this way the comments will all be in one thread. 

    I'm soooo looking forward to seeing everyone!!!

    Hey

    Hey Sundanceh,

     

    Congratulations on getting that book done. I've been lurking around here since 2009 and you helped me a lot to cope with the loss of my Mummy. And I'll be honest, I don't read many times your posts as they are too long for me (LOL), but I do know that you are a great inspration when it comes down to it. So again, congratulations on getting the book done!

    Take care!
