My dear mich, my sister, my friend,

How do I even write in words how I feel about you? How can I even think straight at the thought of being apart? I can do this, because if we are apart, it is because you are seeking help for YOU…

Mich, you have made a huge impact on my life…You have helped me to feel, yet made it safe to feel…I think back and wonder, how did it happen? I would have to go back and reread the threads, but, oh, so many….I am still amazed at the formation of the sisterhood on this site…We each are different with common goals and each have different roles at different times on our threads…My goal is that one day, we will all be able to unite physically already knowing the healed spirits within all of us…what a glorious day that would be…I am picturing us meeting at a major airport, each wearing t-shirts with our nicknames on them to identify us…some of us having more than one nickname, like gg, lil shit, twin, baby triplet, !!!

I know you are amazing because you would always come to my aid even though you yourself were hurting so much…No one in my life here would do that for me and I will always be grateful to you for that…I am still amazed how you can get me to relax during a panic attack through the internet…I could go on and on about all the wonderful things you have taken the time to do for me and my spirit…You are one amazing woman…I know I connected with your hurting soul right off because I could feel your strong compassion for others, your kindness, and love within…I can only hope that I have helped you, consoled you, and given you hope during your times of need…As I am typing this mich, I really don’t know if anyone has ever cared about me as much as you have, this busy mother of four, fight for her own survival…

You made me feel safe to cry, feel okay to say I love you, not feel stupid to say hold me, and I guess you just let me be me, discover me. You helped me knock down some of my walls with me, notice I said with me…and held me during these vulnerable times…I LOVE YOU mich with all of my heart, and I want you to heal and to be a part of my life…I want to meet you one day and hold you and for us to say….we promised and WE SURVIVED…….

Your loving sister forever, GG

Hey, Mich. It's just me, Friendma. I just wanted to let you know that you are very special to me and I appreciate you very much. You extended yourself to me and reached out with kindness and for that I am forever greatful. I have found a place of security and comfort and I could not of done it without you. You were the first one to respond to me and each and every time I see you around here I immidiately feel calm, I trust you and that is so important for me. I just want you to know that I am holding you close and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you find peace, comfort and joy. I love ya, Mich. Take care... Sending you hugs and love...........

Dear Mich -

I was offline most of yesterday, so did not get your urgent cry for help until this morning (on my thread, MA STRONG). I am back. Please post, as I have no idea what has happened.

Love,

Ma Strong

P.S. If anyone else knows what has happened to Mich, please let me know? Or direct me to the correct thread, so I can find out?

Thanks.

Dearest Mich -

Ok...I have been filled in. We all want to see you peaceful, happy and hopeful again. Whatever it takes to accomplish this is fine. We will miss you, but we will all be here for you whenever you need us.

Love,

Hi Mushy Michy!!!

Since you will be leaving us for a bit, depriving me of the amusement of watching the triplets I have to think of clever and witty middle sister SHIT to say. (Sorry, GG, that was just too funny)

Okay, back to Mushy Michy!!

I never told you how much I love your humor, both light and dark. You have a way with words that makes me smile. You can tell the cutest darn stories about your kids and then come up with a one-liner that has me in stitches!!!

You are sentimental and warm. You care so much and give us all so much love. I know that I wouldn't have made it through the last couple of weeks without holding on to you. Oh, sure, you thought I was HOLDING you not holding ON to you. See, I'm a sneaky b*tch!!!

I love to watch you get mad. Now, if I could only get you, GG, Need, LL, Friendma, and Army to STOP aplogizing all the fricing time. I like to see you get mad because you have held in so much for so long. I want you to let it out and get rid of it. Of course, it isn't as easy as it sounds and when it first begins to happen we are so frightened.

Oh, wait!!! These are supposed to be positive. Scratch that! 😀

There are three poems that make me think of you and the special bond I share with you and our sisters. I am quoting them here. I love you and treausre you because you are a woman who is a jewel beyond measure. Thank you for making me laugh, giving me hope and showing me that a rainbow can live in my soul. You are special to me, Mandy. I love you dearly.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

You are friendly, kind and caring
Sensitive, loyal and understanding
Humorous, fun, secure and true
Always there... yes that's you.

Special, accepting, exciting and wise
Truthful and helpful, with honest blue eyes
Confiding, forgiving, cheerful and bright
Yes that's you... not one bit of spite.

You're one of a kind, different from others
Generous, charming, but not one that smothers
Optimistic, thoughtful, happy and game
But not just another... in the long chain.

Appreciative, warm and precious like gold
Our friendship won't tarnish or ever grow old
You'll always be there, I know that is true
I'll always be here... always for you.

Standing by,
All the way.
Here to help you through your day.

Holding you up,
When you are weak,
Helping you find what it is you seek.

Catching your tears,
When you cry.
Pulling you through when the tide is high.

Just being there,
Through thick and thin,
All just to say, you are my friend.

Mandy~ My Michigan : )

Gull darn it girl can’t we just hold you and love you enough to make it all better so I don’t have to share my feelings??? You’ve come to know I hate that- sharing what I feel and as the big sis here I need to stay strong - though somehow I think you could kick my *ss : ) couldn’t keep up with you last night while you were kicking some butt!! I went to bed last night just laughing-giggling about the whole ordeal.

Do you realize we first crossed paths on Oct 9th (a month ago exactly) and then on Oct 16th that within in 24 hrs between you, GG & myself we had close to 300 posts?! And ever since then, going strong with the additional of two more beautiful bouncing baby sisters (for me) Need & Cyndra, and our latest addition Friendma. What a beautiful sistership here that has been created because of you Mich, because of you.

There is something very special about you that if I could put into words what I feel I would… not sure why I can’t but its there-this warm spot within my heart for you. My prayer for you, is for you to see yourself the way you make others feel, to see yourself the way I feel about you but can’t express. For you to get to know that special, unique, gifted person who is are under all the hurt & pain you carry. And overall, for your pain to stop.

Now I have to say I haven’t laughed as much or hurt as much for another than I have during these past weeks. And also must say, I have grown just a touch more with you by my side – (or would that be running behind you?!). And with that, I thank you. I’m looking forward to moving onward with you on my journey while you continue yours getting equipped with just a few more outside tools and support.

We’re in this for the long haul. If Jim recommends inpatient care for you, do know that all the sisters will go on vacation until you get back as who the hell will hold us all together?? Wait, now that isn’t going to work….......We'd have to take care of GG for you - and to replace you in GG life’s for even just a short time it’s going to take all of the sisters AND the the ma's, AND the cousins...might even have to round some people up from the libs side and drag them over here to help out... working together, taking shifts… We will be busy, now won’t we?!!! {Love ya, ya lil sh*t : ) who told on me...}

I love you Michigan. I think you and your littlest twin are the most precious gift that I could have been given on my journey. And you brought into my life more gifts of...Cyndra, Need and Friendma - you’re awesome Mandy, you’re absolutely awesome.

Someday you will see this in yourself and when you do it will be freeing. Sometimes I wonder if my Higher Power’s most hurting creatures are the ones with the most beautiful souls. It’s what I have come to know.

Alrighty then, Mich- let’s go for GG’s dream here, together as a family...…and oh at the airport someday I will be the one with the t-shirt that says I'm the BIG sister and will be the one singing!!

Love you,

lovinglife

To OUR Mich:
I am of course the night owl. Also, new to the family. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to express myself.
You was the first to respond to my thread and just like everyone else, you made me feel like I've belong,loved,validated. I still haven't told my hold story, because I want to make sure you are here. I would love for everyone to meet in an airport. The t-shirts are a wonderful idea. All I know, there is an angel straight from GOD. Her name is Mich. Thank you for being you, I love you.
Just know in your heart, no matter what you go through you are and forever will be BLESSED!

Mich, I just want you to know that we are all here and backing you up 100%!! You are such a sweet, caring and loving person. You have SO much to offer others. So now, it's time to learn how to offer all of these wonderful things to yourself, along with the help of your friends. We love you and will be thinking of you during this time. A time of "hope", I'd like to add. This will be a new door to open now, and we are right beside you, to see you thru it! 😉

We love you, Honey, and will anxiously await your return! My heart is with you, Mich!!

I'm sorry, Honey! I'm keeping you in my prayers, and hoping for the answers for you! Just know that you are in our hearts and you will be thought of each minute of the day! If you have to go, you will be so missed! But OH the day for your return!! There will be a party thread like you've NEVER seen before! It'll make my "adventure" threads look like "Mister Roger's Neighborhood"!

So THIS is what I'll look forward to. To your return, with the updates on your recovery, and ALL of the inspiration you will have to offer others! A celebration will be in order, for sure!

((((MICH))))

Chin UP, Sis!!! (Or I'll send my horse with you! LOL!)

Mich -

1. You are not "crazy." There is no shame in being emotionally overwhelmed and needing rest & support while you recover your peace and strength. You are as sane as I am.

2. If Jim recommends that you receive in-patient rest and support, go for it. Think of it as a vacation from all the pressures you have been carrying. And know that God goes with you. Heck, my entire church is praying for you...people you will never meet in this lifetime. God must love you bunches to have a building full of total strangers, lifting you up before Him for protection and His TLC.

3. Yes, we will miss you on these threads while you are away, but we will still be here for you when you are strong enough to come back home. Lots of us have taken brief vacations and then returned. It's OK to go. We will be ok and so will YOU. Go, knowing that all of us here at AAC care about you, support you and are praying for you.

Love,

Ma Strong
