Thank you all for the comments on Feather. I read them all ... more than once, and I'm not done.
I think I'll be revisiting that post for a while...
Your thoughts are a great comfort and just more evidence to me of the wonder of this new (hey, I remember black and white TV...so I still think of this as new) way of connecting with people.
The restraints of geography and location have fallen away to reveal friends in places you never could have known if not for the net.
And I do think of you as friends.
The combination of finally writing about her going and your heartfelt comments made all the difference yesterday.
I think I'm at that point where you start feeling less lonesome and more appreciative of the wonderful dog years Feather shared with us ... and you through this blog.
So ... I just wanted to thank all of you for being so generous with supporting comments yesterday.
Somehow, a thank you comment from me tacked on to the end of your words just didn't seem appropriate.
I thought I should just take a post to do so.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.
