Over the last few days I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of the online community. All the words of support have been a welcome comfort - both from established friends and from wonderful new friends. I am still waiting for the definitive word on Simon's tumours. When I know the final results, I will post about it.
I would be remiss if I didn't single out one person in particular - Gaylen. Not only did she bestow upon me the Nemo's Award, she also wrote a lovely entry on her blog, asking for fellow animal lovers to send out positive karma to Simon. Fittingly, the award is "a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging" and it requires that I "write the reason why I love blogging."
I have come to realize that blogging has introduced me to a wonderful community of like-minded individuals - women who share a passion for the same things that I enjoy. Not only that, but the people that I have made contact with through blogging are some of the kindest, warm-hearted ladies. I am truly lucky.
