First off, I must say thank you. I always knew how amazing you all are, but I was still overwhelmed by your lovely messages. Your thoughts impacted me deeply and I will carry them with me as I get over this little bump in the road of my life.
Jane Austen said, "Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love." In this case I would shorten it to say, "Friendship is certainly the finest balm." Yeah, you guys are definitely the balm. (Cringe, then laugh. Oh, puns!)
On a lighter note, it is Jane Austen's birthday today. What can I say, love her. She just gets it, doesn't she? In fact, I'm actually looking forward to some recovery time, because that means I can dig into one of her novels and watch a mini-series or two. Or three.
Jane Austen had a lot of disappointments in her life, yet she never lost her wit. When the odds were against her, she created beauty in the form of stories that still affect people centuries later. Safe to say, I consider her a role model.
A couple days ago, Debby sent me the best/silliest video which seems suitable for the occasion. Roll it!
Happy Birthday, Jane! Thank you for everything.
