Keep Going.

You know when someone does something for you that is so awesome you don't even know what to say but you know you need to thank them somehow because dang! it's just so freaking awesome!, but every every time you sit down to write them a thank you note the words just seem... flat? or something? I dunno, not right? Not enough?

I want to...

...I can't....

...but my...

...er, what I'm trying to say is....


You guys? Someone bought me a computer.

Actually, someoneS bought me a computer - as in, an eerily quiet, mysterious, anonymous group of people pooled their resources together and replaced my stupid, dead computer with a brand new, smokin' hot laptop.

And I don't even know what to say.

Except... THANK YOU!

Honestly, I can't even begin to tell you what this means to me. I can't even begin to scratch the surface to reveal the depth of my gratitude.
I can't say "thank you" BIG enough or BOLD enough or ITALICIZED enough to show you, through those two little words, that you've given me a gift so much greater than a keyboard and screen and all the nerdy doodads that make them work together.

I was surprised and elated when my son handed me a laptop and said "This is from your friends". But then I opened the card and it said "KEEP GOING." And I cried.

Like, I bawled. And my husband was, like, "Are you okay?"

I was so much more than okay... because....oh man, I'm gonna need a tissue....because, when you feel like a loser a lot of the time, and then somebody goes out of their way (in this case, way way way out of their way) to say"Hey, I love you and I can see God in you, so Keep Going...."
....Well. There simply are no words...

So I'll just say thank you.
And... I will.

.... .... ....

Keep going... Maybe someone near you needs to hear those words as desperately as I did.

And again, I'm so grateful to those of you who contributed to this computer and encouraged me to keep going. Your kindness and generosity inspire me. Seriously. Thanks, guys!
