Kind of ironic that it's also Father's Day because when I began this journal it was in part due to my father's death only a little over a month before. I was looking for an outlet, a place to find my way and the LJ fandom seemed so warm and inviting. Dipping my toe into an existence online was a big step.
So I took the plunge 5 years ago today. There's been a few times I've wanted to leave, but the wonderful friends I've made here have kept me going. THANK YOU MY FRIENDS!!! Thank you for being there for me, for teaching me lessons, for sharing your gifts, for sharing parts of your lives. I'm ever so grateful. *HUGS* :D
