Saying I like to talk is an understatement. I am a regular Chatty Cathy when it comes to a good friend, comfortable chair, and interesting conversations. A good talk is one of my favorite things on earth, and finding the right words to express an idea is one of the few exercises I enjoy doing.

There were phone calls, emails, letters, texts, cards, meals, hugs (a secret favorite of mine), jokes, gifts, acts of service, prayers, positive vibes, and so many people coming to help my family that I simply do not know how to say thank you.

Oh, and just to show you how funny some people can be, here is one of the best things I got:
