Today I am grateful for the support and encouragement of family and friends. I am truly blessed.

Jenny knows this but many of you may not. Sweet Jenny has been my guardian angel for quite some time. She has been my cheerleader, my mentor, and a very special, loving friend. She has been by my side, every step of the way as I worked my way through her alphabet series (twice!). Alphabe-Thursday became a stepping stone in which I began to explore life, on a deeper level, with poetry and other writings. So you all will just have to excuse me and understand when I take ownership and call her "MY" Ms. Jenny, okay?
Anyway, I was finally able to thank her properly. My Jenny was kind enough to forward me a photo of her beautiful mug.

In under 24 hours I will be on my way to your heart. You are, of course, forever in mine.
A "homesick" 5th
Dear Rack Room Shoes (the one next to Target in Northcross),
Why do I torment myself? No, it's not the shoes; they are cute and all. No, it's not the prices, either. It's just that this particular store, and its management, frustrate me to no end. You advertise clearance sales but nothing is EVER clearly marked. The organization of your store is confusing at best. And I have yet to find anyone helpful when looking for something in particular (even the manager!) Instead, someone usually just points and says "Over there." No, I don't think I'll be back...too many 2nd chances and all.
A shoe-less 5th
Although not walking shoes, I love my new sandal/flip flops. Very fun!
A well-hoofed 5th
I had a fantabulous time on my recent visit. My feet still hurt, however. Too bad Rack Room wasn't helpful in my finding some decent walking shoes. Regardless of the aching feet, every step through you was a delight!
A foot weary 5th
Dear Munchie Boy,
Could you please tell me when you grew up? You are an amazing young man and I am so very proud of you!
I love you forever.
Dear Diner in my Dream,
Thank you for being patient with me as I tried to maneuver the 18-wheeler I was driving through your narrow parking lot. The fromage and kitty kibble pastry were interesting to say the least. It's nice to hear they are all the rage in Europe and although you shared your recipe with me I doubt if I will be baking these up at home. Thanks anyway.
A tummy troubled 5th
Give me strength. I can do this but only with your help.
A grateful 5th

I was witness to a true miracle when only moments before I was praying for one. Yet, I found it unbelievable instead of immediately thanking God for His divine mercy.
My prayer now is for forgiveness: God please pardon my unbelief.
I wish I could share with you what happened but I would be in violation of HIPPA and patient confidentiality regulations if I did. Let's just say it was a "Lazarus" moment.
God is good indeed!

Disclaimers: NO...I did not purchase that ugly, nearly $1400 dress. Instead I bought myself a $10 hat, a "I <3 NY" sweatshirt, and several t-shirts in Chinatown.
I return to work this Friday, so if I don't respond to your comments, please understand.
