The reason hell froze over - SFG is speechless

Y'all know what? Y'all be like all the best and shit. I had a craptastic weekend - as you know. I felt a lot better yesterday and today and then I decided to do some surfing through some blogs today since I had a relatively easy uneventful day. I was making my way through some of my faves and I find out that Celebrating Women made me the blogger of the month. I was shocked and probably said something really eloquent like "Whoa, thanks." Yeah, I'm good like that with words and shit.

THEN, tonight I got an email from Shell from over at Shell's Thoughts who asked for my address and not even to stalk me!!!!! It turns out that the beautiful piece of jewelry she is currently working on is for ME. It's a rosary because I am going through the RCIA. Rather than wait until I eat the holy wafer for the first time, she wants to send it early because I have been having a rough go of it.

This may not say much for my friends that are here in the flesh (or it says LOADS about y'all) but the peeeps out there in the blog world have done more for me in the last year than several real life people that I deal with day to day. Let us not forget that over a year ago, Torrie took up a collection for me and Amanda B. (who is very zen, btw) because we both were displaced by Hurricane Katrina the whore. Seriously, who does that? Well, y'all do that, obviously.

When I have truly lost all faith in the fabulousity and coolness of the general population, y'all have always never failed to exceed my expectations that there are, indeed, some cool ass chicas out there.

So thanks....thanks to Torrie...thanks to Sheri and Suzan.....thanks to Shell....thanks to all of you. Y'all have all been better friends to me than I've had in a while.

Damn, for being speechless, I am long-fucking-winded.

SFG: I agree it made my day,month,year when I was nominated. It came at a time I really needed it. Those celebrating women are fabulous.

I could not have survived this year without all the fabulous support system we have created through the internet.

I am so grateful for everyone and touched by the wonderful people that are out there.

We love ya and yeah I am such an ass that I still need to treck my ass to the post office and mail your stuff! I WILL I PROMISE!

I couldn't have said it better myself! Friend in the blogeshpere are the shiznit! Cream of the crop, salt of the earth!

Oh and I saw that necklace Shell was making - I am so glad it was for you!

aren't blogging bitches the best!!!!

congrats on being blogger of the month!

Okay...disclaimers need to be posted on your website 'cause here I am at work bawling my eyes out.

Girl...making that rosary is nothing compared to the crap you go through and share with us. Plus, like I said, it keeps me out of trouble for a little while.

If all else fails, that rosary has some weight to it so you can use it as a deadly weapon.

I ran out of beads for yours last night and I was already wound up from working on yours so I made like three other necklaces. I've got necklaces coming out my ears. Help.

I heart all of my blogging bitches. They are all like a second family.

Congrats on the blog of the month.

Hey, it's not like this is the Oscar or anything where we'll start playing the music if your speech goes too long.

I'm sorry your hubs' family sucks and are shitty to you. And as for the moving without making any money...are you supposed to? We are the ONLY people in America that LOST money in the real estate boom by selling out house in TX and moving to WI. You can feel better about that!

SFG...WTF?...your making me all misty eyed.

After all, we all have to stick together.

I've thought the same things... how the consistency of my blogger friends say more about my real life friends and family... how someone who doesn't know me may check in at least once a week, while I can go MONTHS without my father's mother ever picking up the phone, even if I call and leave her messages... weird.

Glad your bloggers have been so helpful - - ain't it cool? So cool.
