Well, I am just so excited and grateful to be able to tell you all how much money you raised for me through the Ebay Auction and Paypal donations. I had the pleasure of receiving a cheque from Bella last week, in the amount of $3,300.00. How wonderful is that? Thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart. I am completely overwhelmed to know that people I haven't ever had the pleasure of meeting put their hearts and souls into this and made beautiful works of art, jewellery, amazing framed photographs, just so very many wonderful and thoughtful things were donated. I simply cannot thank each person individually as it is too difficult and I would hate to accidentally leave anyone out and cause offense so this is just a great big thank you to all of you that put in from your hearts, you know who you are, may you be blessed tenfold for your kindness and generosity.
I haven't ever had anything like this done for me before and I just look at the cheque in absolute wonder and disbelief. I really want to frame it, it is just so touching, really! However, I will put it in the bank and start using it to make my battle with this disease a bit easier, thank you, thank you, thank you. I will be able to do things for myself now that I simply would not have been able to do before so it is a huge thing you have done, I love you all and am so grateful that I have such beautiful people coming to this blog. It is magical and I love my blog because of all of you, that's what makes it such a special place for me to come, when I'm feeling a bit down, when I'm happy, when I am just bursting with wanting to share something wonderful, I know I can come here and be heard and loved by all of you, my special angels on earth. Quite apart from the cheque, I receive parcels every now and then to cheer me up and these warm my heart, I have had scrapbook supplies sent to me, books and more books, beautiful cards, pyjamas, candles, moisturisers, hand knitted hats and scarves, notebooks and pens - all sorts of beautiful, pampering and uplifting things - a handmade book which I treasure. You are all so special I can't even find words strong enough to express my feelings to you all. I just wish I could have a moment with each of you and give you a big hug and look you in the eyes and thank you. You would be able to look in my eyes and see the sincere gratitude and love shining there. I can feel it filling me up and nurturing me. There are no more words except THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH. XXX
