"Even though I know the worst is probably yet to come, I wanted to say Thank you.
It is funny, the ebb and flow of life and the direction it takes. After 6 long years of this relationship all it took was one caring smile, one compassionate face, one stranger saying –you are worth more-to tip the balance so drastically that I knew-KNEW with certainty that the words she spoke were true, that yes, I am indeed worth more than this. That, I think, is the beauty of women. Women are powerful creatures with compassionate souls by nature I believe, and a group of caring compassionate women is a force to be reckoned with-evident everyday by the work that you do for others. Words seem trivial & small in this instance, it is often hard to express the feelings of the heart. Thank you for being the light in the dark, one of which I am sure I will need in the coming weeks. I cannot adequately express my gratitude. ~J"
