2014 Review: I have so many to thank...
It's been one hell of a year for most of us. For me, it's been one of struggle and some serious life lessons, particularly through the first half. But, that's a post for another day.
If it weren't for so many amazing friends, I wouldn't have made it. They are owed more than I can ever repay, but the least I can do is publicly acknowledge that without them, I would not be where I am today.
I want to thank my kids, Lyssa, Silas, and Steven in particular, for being my reason for fighting and not giving up. For always having a 'can-do' attitude and a survivor's mentality.. and the best sense of humor whenever things have gone wrong.
I want to thank Myke G for all he did for me and my family this year. It was huge, and he did it with such kindness.
A HUGE thank you to my brother-from-another-mother, Alan Sheridan. He has done so much for me that I couldn't begin to list it all. He was there for me by listening, sending gifts, talking to me about silly things that got my mind off my troubles, and always, ALWAYS just being the loving human being that he is. I want to BE him when I grow up.
To Loren, Jennifer, Tara, Renee and Eli.. you are my lifeline, my rock, my support group, the people who will kick me in the ass when I need it, and love me when I don't. I am honored and grateful for each and every one of you. I couldn't ask for better besties/family on the planet!
To Rita Digilova- I cannot thank you enough for everything you'd done for me this year. I am honored and blessed to call you my friend.
To Amy Blackthorn and her hubby, Matt, who have been absolute life-savers when I needed help, and even when I didn't NEED it, they've been amazing friends/family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To Adrian Miles.- You are one of my oldest and dearest friends. You have and always are there for me as my sanity check. I love you bunches!
To Michelle Gregg- thank you for all the support and gifts you've sent to Lyssa for her and Silas. You are such a love. I hope we'll get to meet up sometime in 2015. Just know you're always welcome here.
To Stef Dunaway- You are a doll. Thank you for your support for me, my family and my causes.. you truly are someone to emulate.
To Melissa Cassick- Thank you for sharing your love and family with me. I am honored beyond words- even Seussian ones.
To Autumn Earthsong- I am so thankful that you are my friend. You listen, you share, and you love. You are such a wonderful leader.
To Sammi Dambach, my DFAL: thank you for being you- always. I love you bunches, darlin.
To my Tarot clients, you are truly phenomenal people, and I am honored to have been able to serve you throughout the year.
To The Stew Crew: You are wonderfully talented writers and I thank you all for your contributions to The Sunday Stew, and to my life. I've learned so much from you all.
To The Sirens: Wow.. you all blew me away this year. I think this was our best one ever, and it's because you all worked so hard to make it a success.
To the WT&P Book Club: You are all brilliant, kind, loving and giving. I've learned so much from all of you. To Ly De Angeles- thank you for allowing us to peruse your book and for giving us your wisdom and knowledge so freely. We are all honored.
To all of my 777 Facebook friends and acquaintances: I love you all.. the photos, blogs, life updates, memes, etc... they've cheered me up and reminded me how truly lucky I am to have such wonderful people in my life.
I am grateful beyond the words I've written here. Just know that all of you hold a very special place in my heart, and I am a better person for having walked this year with you.
