Friends and Teammates
...but then I remember my friends. My family. Those who love me. And support me.
I know that as long as I keep my head on straight and keep moving forward - keep making the efforts - they'll never abandon me. They'll rejoice in my successes - and they'll share my disappointment in my failures. They'll be honest, harsh when needed, and never judgmental.
While we were in WDW a few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to see Princess Fiona for a few minutes! We flew in the day she was flying out - but she got to come say hi - hang with Elizabeth and Amber and I for about 10 minutes and even though it wasn't an "elongated" visit - it was enough to feel her support and love.
It's part of what makes this community so special to me.
Rae and Eric won't be joining us at the race - and we'll miss them terribly. It will be a loss keenly felt. But I know I'll see them in February at the Princess (I hope).
But when I think of sharing time with Jeff, Justin, Amanda, Andy and Sharla, and more - it reminds me that every step forward is just that - a step forward.
And then...my fears aren't so bad.
A quick side note: Sharla - I had no idea you and Andy were reading my blog! Welcome aboard! I can't wait to see you guys next week! But what time are we having dinner at Teppan Edo? :)
