This is one of those times…I think (I know) that they would get caught deep inside and I would struggle with emotion. Yet I hope that you all realise just how much your responses to my blogs mean to me -every single time.Yet this time, I am even more thrilled, amazed and emotional.
My blog about Tom that I wrote on World Downs Syndrome Day has been read, discussed and responded to in the most gloriously positive way – I could not be happier.
I have had people approach me and say they enjoyed and appreciated reading about Tom and learning a little about Downs Syndrome …thanking me for sharing! Well, I thank each and every one of you for giving a little of your time, to read and therefore think about Down's Syndrome at that moment and hopefully beyond that moment. To my wonderful 67, those of you who shared back, giving me such warmth through your words and the courage that when the time is right once more, it will be a good thing to continue to share, educate and well quite obviously just be a proud parent – THANK-YOU.
I have read, re-read and read again ALL your comments. I foolishly started to read them in between my shows at QVC…NOT a sensible idea and I realised how deeply I am touched by all that you have shared with me.
I WISH WISH WISH that I could respond to each of you personally…forgive me, yet please know that I feel so incredibly privileged and grateful that you have shared your lives, thoughts and stories with me.
It so clearly shows that there are so many of us in this world who are experiencing these different paths…some of you in similar situations to me, and some of you have friends or loved ones who have differences.
Your replies have made me smile, made me soar with joy and yes, some of your replies really made my heart hurt…what strength and courage you have.
I wish you all peace and my love and admiration,
