These flowers are for you. Think of them as a belated Valentine's Day gift. From me to you.
They're my way of saying thanks for hanging in there with me. Thank you for your love and your care and your prayers.
Thank you for putting up with me.
Thank you for your lovely emails. And comments. And Facebook messages. And texts.
Thank you for not being cross with me for not answering. I want to, believe me, but I just don't know what to say.
Generally, the words bubble up out of me. Now, I spend ages staring at my dashboard. I know what I want to write, I just don't seem able to get my thoughts into print. I think I'm trying too hard.
I value every word that you say. Your comments mean so much to me. Thank you for bothering to leave them.
That's why I'm giving you these red roses from what remains of our garden.
I hope you like them.
Thank you again, my dear friends.
