I was getting my laundry ready for the marathon cleaning today, feeling a bit wistful since getting home - for several reasons. And as I was turning out my pockets, I found the charm you gave me, the angel.

I held it in my hands and thought of you. And it really made me smile, remembering.

I just wanted you to know.

Thank you.

I still carry my angel from Toronto, and I also share that bond with Trish, and I still thank her.  :)

It's just that they need more supervision.

Yep, I carry mine with me all the time now. It is a fond remembrance and a hopeful reminder.

Thanks Trish, you are a special lady.

Thank you Jonathan... I wish I would have gotten to spend more time with you and chat heart to heart, but you know how it is... many people, many things to do and even though we spoke only briefly, hugging you and seeing you in person was more than I could have asked.  Touching the man who writes so beautifully as you do (which I admire more than you could ever know) and gives his all to these forums with much heart, I am honored to have gotten the chance to HUG you tightly and share the angel with you.  My only regret is that I did not purchase enough of them to give to everyone, but there is always the next gathering to do so.

Thank you Jonathan for brightening my morning today, truly a blessing in disguise.

Love you much,

Trish :-*

My charm goes with me everywhere (well, not in the shower) and I am reminded numerous times during the day of our time in Montreal.  I was touched with how well you proclaimed the reading at the wedding (it was my first same sex wedding also.)  I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness.

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you.  You are just so damn sweet.  I only wish we could have had more time to chat.  You and John (although this thread is not about John  ;) )are a great couple.  Congratulations on finding each other.

And thank you for the angel charm.  It is a treasure
