letters

1. To Anonymous, who sometimes comments on my blog: Who are you? Is there more than one of you ? Do I know you? Just curious.

2. To Christie and others who wondered why I cried for four hours straight:

It's a long story. I had the flu at the time, which for some reason exaggerated my emotions. I was dealing with some personal issues (and still am) that caused me significant distress at the time.

My mistake was that I should have talked to my husband about several things, but I didn't. For several weeks I kept my feelings to myself until one fateful day they ALL spilled out and wouldn't stop coming for four hours. I have since realized my mistake and have taken to dealing with issues as they arise, rather than keeping them to myself. I guess it's a part of being married that I'm just learning about. A part of the human experience that I'm just learning about!

Thanks for your concern, though. I'm doing much better these days.

3. To TK: I miss you and your blog!

4. To my husband, who is my proven soul mate: To have your love and honesty is everything to me. xoxoxo.

Um, I think there's more than one of us. You haven't met me (yet), but I get a huge kick out of reading your blog! Oh, and I met Reva at ASU, though I don't think she'd remember--it was just one of those met-in-the-hall-and-chatted things. So wild you'd have her blog linked! How'd you meet her?

Christie (aka Mom), Thanks so much for your kind words. :) You are too sweet. And don't worry, I'm doing much better now. Thanks for the good advice. I'm blessed to have you and John, too!

And to Anonymous 1: Intriguing. Do you have a blog? How did you stumble across mine? I appreciate your comments. :) And the Reva connection is funny. I actually never met her--we know each other through our blogs! The world wide web is a funny place...

Ha! That's too funny. I only remembered Reva's name because it was different and she was so funny when I met her. Funny I'd even remember, but anyway.... I don't have a blog. That explains why I can't login and use my blog name or anything. Hence, the anonymous. I was a good friend of John's in high school. Okay, through all of school, seeing as I grew up in SJ. We were actually invited to your sealing, etc., but through a series of crazy events, didn't make it to anything. So, I still have yet to meet you! But, that's how I came across your blog. I found John's and yours was, oddly enough, linked to it. ;)
