It Has Mattered

I know that a lot of you have thought that there is nothing you can say to make things better.  And feel that you are saying the same things over and over and the same things that others have already said.  But I want to you to know that isn’t true.  Every single comment, every single email, every single card, every single phone call, every single cookie, every single prayer, every single wish, and every single thought has mattered to me.

I’ve started taking my laptop up to bed with me.  When I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep, I turn it on and there has always been love waiting for me there so I don’t have to sit alone in the darkness.

I’ve read every comment and email and I think I’ve seen every link and reference to me, even if I didn’t say anything.  And it has mattered to me.

Every word has mattered.
