to you...

I went back and re-read my own words, and then read yours... the words from your heart to mine... and I felt the need to say thank you. This place of mine, it is honest and true... bits and pieces of me. And if I am honest, how can I share the good without the ugly? And sometimes this heart of mine feels downright ugly. Especially when I know I am saying or doing something, all the while wanting to freeze time and give myself a harsh talking to.  The words came to me, and flowed from my hand... but I did not hit publish without some trepidation and fear... that you would think less of me. And you... you focus on the good in me when I can hardly see it though the darkness. So I will say it again... thank you.

What you don't realize, is you give much more than YOU get. I am always in awe of your words and your honesty.
Shouldn't you be packing for a trip somewhere?? :)

You are beautiful! And honesty, even the ugly bits, is always refreshing!

I read your previous post just now, Dawn (been a very busy week for me, so behind in reading blogs), and as far as I'm concerned, the best writing comes from a place of pure honesty of spirit. We're all alike. Only the brave can actually say it. Well done.

Oh Dawn, I just love your blog. Full of real life honesty, and believe me when I say that your beauty shines through all your words, even when I think you are convinced of your own ugliness. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Glad I found you - what a sweet post.
Blessings!

I second what Dayle says -- I just read your honest, unflinching post about you and your daughter. And you know, those real words help the rest of us, they do. Because we are all flawed...and so very grateful when someone else shines a light on their flaws, too.

So thank YOU, Dawn, for being you.
