Robb Speaks

OK

Did you ever see someone stumble, immediately regain their feet and announce, “I’m okay!”?


Well, today, that’s me. The announcement has taken six weeks and I’ve not yet completely regained my feet but -- I’m okay. I’ll be okay.


And here’s why: Lisa, my family, my friends, my colleagues, my neighbors and those of you I’ve never met but hope to. Every letter, every card, every visit, every gift, every email, and message left on this weblog; every time I hear of someone asking about me, keeping me in their thoughts or prayers -- all the support, all the love, and the boundless generosity has lifted me up in ways you cannot imagine.


These past weeks should have been the most difficult of my life but I’ve made it through, my spirits intact, because of your love and kindness. Thank you.


There’s a long road ahead but I know I’ll get there with some good company along the way.


Postscript


My friends EJ and Dave sent me a card a while back with the following quote (I think of this often):


Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

You are in my thoughts everyday.....
And soon...sooner than you know....all of this will be a vague memory...
Time heals all wounds and so does the love around you.
The worst part is already past, and smoother sailing remains ahead. Love to you and Lisa and your kitties!!!
