November 15, 2018To the hundreds of loving people who wished me well after my emergency hospitalization last week -- THANK YOU!!! ...(the crowd goes wild!). I have 1,200 Facebook Friends, and I swear I heard from all of em since I was released from PeaceHealth Hospital in Longview WA last week. How very cool. It might sound weird (nothing new for me, of course) but I heard from so many people, from so many countries, and heard from friends and relatives I have not been in touch with for years. Some I'd never met. Even people that don't like my politics! It was wonderful.
I told Tanner, after my health scare and ambulance ride, that I felt a little like Cuba Gooding Jr. in Jerry Maguire. Lying in the end-zone, smiling at the applause. Just a precious moment, which is how I would describe the love I have received and given back this past week. From so many. I am deeply humbled, deeply. And anxious to tackle my Bucket List.
