LOL (Lots of Love) for Gaijinwife

Please say a prayer, send a vibe, burn some incense, do your thing, whatever that thing is, for my friend Katy over at Gaijinwife.  Katy literally JUST lost her mom to brain cancer, less than 4 months ago, and has now found out that her dad has lung cancer.

Katy is a bloggy friend, we've never met face-to-face, but that doesn't seem to matter at all, I still consider her as much a friend as any one I've ever clinked margarita glasses with in real life.  The internet makes the huge, wide world seem like a really small place and through our blogs, a lot of us have shared many joys and pains, celebrations and sorrows.  Katy holds nothing back on her blog, she's honest, funny, caring and real, and she, along with many others, offered me support, comfort and encouragement as I weathered my own shit storm two years ago (although that crapfest was nothing compared to the hell Katy and her family are going through).  I hope I've been able to give a little of the same to her in return.

Be strong Katy, know that you've got an army of friends the world over cheering for you and ready to help and support you and your family in any way we can!  LOL

I'm not sure if I have ever commented on your blog before or not but I have been reading for an awfully long time. I feel like I 'know' you though from your comment on the same blogs we read and on FB as well :)

I guess I just wanted to delurk and say your post was well said. Katy is everything you said she is and like you I feel like she a friend although we haven't met in real life.

She gives and gives and gives and it breaks my heart to know that she has to go through this (again) :(

way to choke a girl up. You've been great Bryn. So many people I've never met in real life have been so supportive. The blogosphere is my retreat and it is comforting to know I have so many people on my side. Can't wait to clink glasses. Big glasses. Lots of them :)
