ach of you - Ozzie (Ian), Buck (Jaimie), Lee, Chet, Martin, Robbie, Matthew, American Girl, Disappointed, Undefeated, R - your support is so very much appreciated.I
'm still a bit shy about fully sharing - I do it in bits and pieces and am working on trusting here at MS - but I am learning quickly who my friends are and that support structure is so vitally important to me.I
just wanted to say thanks from the bottom of my heart.I
recently told a friend that I didn't really think myself a "hero" and although I appreciate you saying that (it makes me smile
), the fact is - and I know this - you would have done the same if it was YOUR situation. And you know it. And I do. But thank you just the same.I
did, however, state the truth with my adjectives. I was rather "little" - not the smallest but not quite as big as my school mates. And the "dirty" was just how I felt. But I was also an avid boy scout (no CSA issues there for me) - I actually read the entire scout manual, and remember clearly it talking about dirt - that were were two kinds. One was the dirt of the mind - not so good - bad thoughts, perversions, criminal intents, the whole nine yards. The good dirt you could always tell - it came off in the shower. I had plenty of the latter - and suspected much more of the former. Boy was I in the wrong organization...B
eing here makes me reconsider that. Maybe I should have stuck around for Eagle after all...
