First off, I can't thank you all enough for making a really bad time for me just a bit more bearable. I was truly blindsided by the loss of my friend and how empty my life suddenly became. All your kind and caring thoughts reached through cyberspace. I felt your touch and it was warm.
I still can't think of her nor see all the things she has sent me through the years without feeling the pain of loss. I look forward to the time when these thoughts and things will bring warm smiles and memories as they should.
However, that time is getting nearer thanks to all of you who took time to reach out. My blog buddies with tender messages, my sister who read the post and made the call (thanks Jan), a good friend here who also made the call (thank you Julie), and my brother who knew nothing about my loss but also called helping to establish a bit of normalcy.
Then Saturday, a luncheon with 18 of my support group helped restore my balance somewhat. Thank you all so very much. Not sure what I would have done with out all that help.
On a lighter note, I did ask for you all to name my new fish a few posts ago. I was really impressed with the creative names you all came up with and wish I had a bunch more fish to apply them. I used the scientific method to select the name, I drew one out of a bowl.
|Oops a glass bowl doesn't show up.|
Of course the winner gets nothing outside of bragging rights. That is unless the winner would like a cat with a really bad gas problem. That could be arranged:))
And the winning name for that feisty little blue fish is -----FINN.
Thanks Islandwonder, for that name has double meaning. Finn for his obviously flowing fins, but also Finn is an Irish name and we Irish are pretty well known for our pugilistic personalities. Somehow I missed that gene for I am a weenie personified.
Thanks to all of you who participated. I am so glad I can quit that “fishy, fishy” routine. Finn it is from now on. Thank you for playing and thank you again for being there. You really made a difference.
