Dear Karen and Jo

Dear Karen and Jo,

Words won't do.

There is simply no way to describe the wonderful day
I have had because of you both.
The email from Karen saying that my studio was chosen to be in the
Where Women Create magazine was the beginning of a whirlwind of calls,
comments and emails from blog friends around the nation and the world.
To say I am thrilled, isn't enough.
To say my daughter was so proud and happy for me, isn't enough.
To say I am humbled and honored isn't enough.

Words won't do.

Hopefully, my most heartfelt gratitude and thanks will suffice.
I am truly grateful.

Well, I will be first in ine at our local newsstand to buy that issue. I love your studio so much and am so very glad for you that you were chosen. You have such an amazing way with things and your writing as well. You simply must write the copy for the article! I am just so thrilled for you! Enjoy this time and these next days - the excitement of it will stay with you for a very long time but there will never be anything quite like now.

Dearest Suzan, I cannot tell you how good all your comments and emails have made me feel. I am sooo happy for you! I remember walking around in a daze for quite a while when I first heard the news of my own feature. I hope this opens up many exciting doors for you. What they will be no one knows, but I have come to believe that in blogland and the community of women I have grown to love, anything is possible!!!
