I think I have finally recovered from being a total lunatic. But I can say without a doubt, it has been one of the best birthday weeks. The shock of it still lingers but to say a thousand thank you's wouldn't be enough.
I realize that I can't watch that video because it just starts it all over again. It's like Cheech and Chong trying to recover from the Mary Jane. You know that if they saw a big fattie it would put them right back in a fog, so I just refuse.
But, I see that it's just not about these boots. I received a gift. A gift of friendship. I have so many people that I speak with every day either via text, email, Facebook twitter etc. I realized that it's so much more than that. All of us come together to support each other and with what? Words. We feel in our hearts, yet some of us have never met. Miles separate us but we find a way to communicate, feel for each other when we are in pain, love each other and all we have seen are stories and pictures but we know each other.
I have some great friends here that I love and I have great friends that I have never met. How does that happen? I started my blog as a little memory book for the kid. It is a true reflection of who I am. There's nothing fake about it. It's my crazy life. But it's also mostly about being my true self. I am a jokester. I like to tell about funny things. Things in my head that have no rime or reason yet you come back and read the nonsense. I think we attach ourselves to things that we know are familiar and relateable.
What I am trying to say is, I have no clue how I deserved all of this, but I am so grateful for it. I have these wonderful people in my life. These beauties that grace my blog everyday for either with a comment or on my sidebar. They are there for a reason. Some have come and gone, but guess what? I am still their friend and that's what it's really about. I love making friends. I love learning your journey. I love laughing and feeling along with you all.
You Rock! Thank you for reading along and that means bloggers and non blogging friends. My heart is humbled. It is full. It has love.
Now, that the sappy shit is out of the way, tomorrow we get back to business. I will be telling you about cleaning out my dresser drawers and finding bootie shorts.
PS.. follow along on Instagram or @dustydalley to see some of the other wonderful things I received this past week. My heart melts.
