feralfae Posted December 25, 2013 Report Share Posted December 25, 2013 On this Christmas Day, here around our fire, here among our Tribe, I wanted to say "Thank You" to each of you who have honored my vulnerability, consoled my grief, articulated my anger, shown me new perspectives on dark clouds, and for so much loving compassion. I think one of the greatest values I find here is that no matter where we are in our journey, our sense of vulnerability at being on this path is always honored, and no matter where our emotional storms carry us, we are honored for our willingness to make the journey, to not turn off and numb out, but to go on, even if somedays that is merely resting for the next pitch. . It has been a day of wonderful memories, opening gifts, crying, more memories, floods of memories of Doug's smiles, and of course the accompanying floods of tears, but mostly joyful gratitude, more than painful sorrow. I am wonderfully blessed. Thank you for giving me this fire where my grief is not a cause for discomfort to others. This Fire is a very wonderful Gift this season, and I am entirely grateful we have been welcome here. Your warm hearts and caring presence, each of you, has meant a lot to me. Thank you. I would not be feeling as cleared as I am had it not been for the wisdom and stories shared here. Blessings, peace, and wonderful memories for us all this day. *<twinkles>* fae Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
