Dear Jim *Our Biker90,
Your message touched many hearts ~ so I’d say the words were perfect!!
Jim & MaryLu…
Thank you for touching my life.
“All that you are ~ reaches out and touches others
in ever-widening circles of friendship.”
This thread made many things swirl in my mind and I wanted to say a few things.
I guess we can call it a mama bluebird moment (after processing a lot of thoughts that this triggered)… chirp~chirp~chirp… I know you won’t mind…that I’m going to include my thanks to the ladies in this posting.
Jim *Our Biker & Miss MaryLu
I remember your 1st posting!! back on 11-07-2006
That’s when we first welcomed you ~ on a thread we started called….
Biker90's Page.... Welcome New Friend :)
What a powerful journey!! Knowledge is Power and Power takes away the fear...
Thank you so much for allowing us into your heart
and for taking our hands to help guide you at a vulnerable time.
Now ~ your hands are one of the strongest here on HealingWell…
New Members ~ I hope you take time to read each and every post and reply posting on his threads (listed below)… They allow you to see what a personal thread is all about…. Seeing the whole journey in only a few threads.. This is truly Powerful.. your path will be smoother having read Biker’s Journey…
And to know that we’ve shared more than cyber hugs…. Having felt the true warmth of your hugs will forever be in my spirit! To see your wonderful face and Miss MaryLu’s as you walked down the corridor to our motel room in Seattle. To see your smile across the dining table. To feel the extra warm of a farewell at the end of the evening… as you and Miss MaryLu drove away in her beautiful, powerful, rumbling……Mustang…vvvvvvaarrrrrrrrrooommmmm
Powerful car and Powerful feeling to go with it…
I wish to share you and MaryLu here with so many friends.
A face with a name adds so much to the journey…I know this to be true after meeting
Jim *Biker, MaryLu, Puget, Ray *Pasayten, and Avis *sun4pasayten this summer.
Thank you for allowing me to post it.
I got quite a giggle when reading your comments about “Our” *swimom!!!
I too was scared of her “at first”…I was new and didn’t know a whole lot and I would see her postings…. Shooting from the hip with her honesty and tough love. As time went by the respect meter rose higher and higher… She posted this thread…Comfort when we need it and I finally reached out to let her know my feelings… I’m so glad I did! Her knowledge and her strength of sharing ~ is a gift ~ to so many here on the forum. We sure are glad you’re still with us Vicki… your special touch is one of many who make this forum so “powerful”…
M.Kat opened the doors with sharing personal stepping-stones in the recovery healing process with ED… allowing others to open up and speak more freely.
wittler ~ with her STAY STRONG…. Has remained with me to this day… my Blue Ridge Mountain friend…
GreenAcres ~ for allowing us to “reach back to her” during their journey and continuing to stay close. “cheers dear friend”!!!
lawink ~ for being here for all of us and sharing a journey that has a few extra stepping-stones in your path… letting others know there is hope even with two secondary conditions.
Wicket ~ dear sweet lady… I’m thinking of you and still keep you close.
As I look back over the past 24 months since 1st being diagnosed (Feb 06) and 22 months since surgery (Apr 06)…. It truly takes my breath away ~ to see where we “all” are today because of HealingWell.com (Thank you Mr. Peter Waite ~for this special gift and for giving us a little more latitude in our postings and our signatures due to the specific nature of our recovery…)
I would like to add my thanks to a few “special ladies” listed above who allowed me to walk closely with them on their path… and/or with “us” during the early stages of “Our Journey”.
To all the “new” ladies ( friends ) who have shared so much with all of us over the past 21 months since we joined HealingWell…. I dare not mention individual names ~ with the thought of missing someone. You definitely know who you are!!
“YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE”
~ because you will feel the warmth of bluebird wings touching you ~ when you read this!!!
Jim ~ Thank you for this special thread… Hugs from Lee
