Oh my gosh, that's beautiful, thank you! Now I know I'm not gonna stop crying for the rest of the day.
My Beloved Toasties – You’ve gotten me through good times and desperate times and for that I will be forever grateful. You’ve made this a safe place and I love you all!
Yup, did this same exact thing. I didn't even read any of the links today, but part of that is because I've been crying. Kind of a lot crying.
My heart stopped for a moment.
Oh crap now I know I'm not going to stop crying today.
This link roundup has been a part of my wake-up with coffee every morning for the past 2 years. I'll miss it terribly. Thank you for the work you put in to make everyday interesting, funny, witty, absorbing, surprising and a learning experience.
For the next few months, I'm going to revisit earlier Link Roundup posts and read everything I didn't get to on the first go-round. Denial? Maybe, but I'm not ready to let go yet. I want to go gently into that good morning.
I was in a psych ward once, and 5 of the 10 women, patients all, had red hair, including me. I asked my psychiatrist about it, and he gave me a really funny look, and said it was all just a big coincidence. Not saying redheads are crazy, but that was quite a gathering. A lot of laughter going on, and it was probably the best psych ward stay ever.
I've been in denial too. Every time I think about the Toast closing, I start welling up. I look ahead -- next week -- to days starting with no open link, no brilliant, insightful, witty comments; no misandry; no delightful people that I relate to. Yup, I'm crying now, so I have to go into denial again. Sheesh.
