Sharon, for myself, I can say that you have fulfilled many things in your list of questions. And that is just in the short time I've known you.
You have such a caring, compassionate heart and gave me the writing/English teacher I never had.
All of your questions touched me, but the one that I have the most difficulty with is 'Dancing in the rain'. It is so hard for me to turn loose of those I love and do it with joy. As I get older I find it is becoming a little easier.
It isn't exactly doing it with joy, Lynn. It's dancing because you are celebrating the life they lived, the friendship you had. You just do it in the rain so your tears have an excuse and a place to go.
The first time I heard 'Dancing in the rain' was the beautiful tribute (Spotlight) you wrote about Sally Ramsdell. I cried every time I thought about it. I am not very good about sifting my way through my feelings, so not sure why I had such a huge reaction to it.
Because I never got the chance to know her personally?
Because I've known people that I've felt were like her that are now gone?
Because it is always sad when we lose people like her?
And the list goes on.
Sharon, I enjoyed reading the article so very much. I wish I could wrap my arms around each of you and tell you how very much you all mean to me! I'm going back now to re read the article. Every word touched my heart. Thank you.
