Gratitude Challenge Day 8:

Thank you notes!!!

Dear Shayla,
Today is about sending Gratitude to those whom I don't thank enough,
and you are one of them.
I am Grateful to you for taking me under your protective wing when I
first got here. I knew very little of anyone inside or outside of
University, and even those I felt attached to I didn't know very well.
You took me out and showed me around from Boulder to Longmont and
Aurora. Great memory by the way!! Thank you for that to.
You taught me about the place and you taught me about the geography of
a Woman who wasn't me. . . Thank you!!I shall be eternally Grateful.
Here's to you my Sweet. . .

Dear E:
Thank you forgiving me our beautiful Babygirl. Without you I wouldn't
be carrying her, and I have no words to express my Gratitude.
Thank you for realizing just how capable I am even when I ask for
help. My biggest fear was that asking for help would detract from my
abilities in any person's eyes who wasn't visually impaired like me.
It's a constant uphill battle to be taken seriously with any
disability *as you've witnessed*, and I was afraid that you to
wouldn't take me seriously or worse, would see me as lacking,
incompetent or weak if I asked for help. I'm thrilled to find my
worries were over nothing!!
Thank you for your fabulous command of Denver and it's bus stops!!
You've proven envaluable there to!!
Thank you for opening up to me and being vulnerable. Your
vulnerability allowed me to expose mine to.
I love you Baby, thank you. . .

Oh. . . where do I begin exactly??? Thank you for the vote of
confidence when I was dealing with that egotistical Prof from the
other University who came to "learn us" for a few months. Think we
learned him personally, but that's another story entirely!! Lol. *huge
