You know, when I wrote my last post, I never could have imagined the amazing response it would get. I’m completely overwhelmed. And all I can really say is thank you. Thank you for reading. Thank you for the tweets and the emails. Thank you for the facebook messages, text messages, and phone calls. Thank you for the hugs. I’ve been so surrounded by love in the last 24 hours, and all I can say is…wow.
I hoped that by writing about the tough stuff I would be able to move forward and begin writing again with some feeling of normalcy. But I don’t feel normal. I feel lifted up.
When my post about Ginnie was included on today’s roundup of food news links on CNN’s site, Eatocracy, one friend aptly said, “It’s like Ginnie’s way of telling you to get back to blogging, love it.” That’s definitely what she would say if she were here, “Get your act together. Stop moping and start writing.” And since she isn’t here to say it, all of you said it for her.
Today, for the first time in awhile, I cried tears of joy. So many more people have been touched by Ginnie’s life now than if I had simply spoken at a memorial service. So thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can’t say it enough. I am truly touched.
