Thank You Thank You Thank You!

Love does not consist in gazing at one another
but in looking outward together

 Flowers for Leontien

I want to thank everyone for the support shown to our blogger friend Leontien in The Flowers for Leontien event. If you have not had a chance to look at our even participate in this show of support it is not too late. Nancy is going to leave this page up and you can send your Flowers and Hugs.

Nancy, Theresa, and I were overcome with emotion yesterday while reading your posts, it is more than we could ever have imagined. It touched our hearts and soul. I myself am still trying to get through all of them and I will make it. The plan was to fill the blogger air waves with flowers and you did not disappoint. As I write this post there were 177 bloggers with Flowers for Leontien not to mention the non-bloggers who are flooding Facebook with their beautiful flowers, hugs, support, and most importantly LOVE.

While I was making my way through the posts I read that many of you had not even heard of Leontien and were still there to share your LOVE and support. This, my dear friends is what I LOVE about our Blogger world, and I must say the people of our world in general, all coming together for those in need.

I would also like to thank Nancy and Theresa for taking this to where it is. I am so honoured to know you and share in the love that everyone needs in this sometimes scary world. 

Imagine the size of building it would take to contain all these beautiful flowers. Thank you.

 We love you Leontien and for all those fighting a battle (I know she is not the only one) our prayers, LOVE, hugs and our support are also with you. Don’t give up. We are all loved.  {{HUGS}}
