Title: I got nothing...
Post by: Melinda on October 10, 2008, 04:54:41 am
So the title may be a bit deceptive, but after trying for 3 days to come up with a new way to say thank you with all my heart...I got nothing!

You guys are the most amazing group of people I have ever met in my entire life. Thank you so much for making this the best non-birthday ever! You might be wondering why I call it my non-birthday...well, I spent the entire day flying back into Nashville from Lakisha's beautiful wedding and then I landed that evening, got in my car and drove straight to a rehearsal. So, I had decided to postpone my birthday until I could fully enjoy it...hence, October is my birthday month and it might seep into November.  :-)
Anyway, when I finally crawled into my house that night, I had some of the most wonderful gifts ever! So...thank you so very much for the amazing well wishes in some of the coolest online cards I have ever seen...thank you for the massage (you have NO idea!)...AND quadruple thank you for donating money to the Belmont scholarship fund. You guys are the most creative and thoughtful bunch in the entire world. Thanks for making me smile even when my teeth felt tired. I love you more than I can ever tell you so...I got nothing!

Love,
Me

Melinda, if you got nothing, I want what you have, cause its plenty!!!  You are so welcome. Hugs, I Love You ( I feel like a record stuck on the same statement).  You deserve the best of everything and I know for me if I could give you it ALL I surely would.

Thanks for being a Blessing to me and all of us.   :bighug

Less of me Lord and More of YOU!  That is sort of what "I've got nothing means" 

Melinda, we are a manifestation of you, our inspiration.  We all do love and support you.

HAVE A HAPPY BIRTH MONTH!

Melinda you make me tired just reading about everything you do. Even the purple stars in your title are tired!  You've worn them out. They're just little asterisks now!!!  :yikes

Stay well. Rest when you can. Remember we love you and will always be here for you!

Dearest Melinda--

You possess a bountiful supply of SOMETHING!! And, we are blessed because you share it with us. You need to get some rest, young lady. It makes me dizzy just thinking about all that you are doing.  Then, why not celebrate your birthday for a whole year. It seems that the year is going to be an awesome one for you (and for us)!! We love you. :wub :wub :wub

Looks like I lost a file on the last upgrade.  Unfortunately, at the moment, I can't find another copy of it, so I'll have to re-create it.

Melinda,

This may be the first time I can say I'm truly glad you've got nothing . . if it means you were so happy with the gifts you had no words to express it.  As backups, it's the least we can do, and it's our honor to do anything that will bring you happiness.  Enjoy your birthday month. :rose :rose :)

Did YOU SPEED to that rehearsal???!!!   :freakout

YOU have EVERYTHING!

"l'amor che muove il sole e le'altre stelle"

Within a single volume, bounded by love
I saw the scattered leaves of all the universe—
Substance and accidents, and their relations,
As though together fused in such a way
That what I speak of is a single light.
The universal form of this commingling
I think I saw, for when I tell of it
My heart rejoice so much the more...
How powerless is speech— how weak, compared
To my conception, which itself is trifling
Beside the mighty vision that I saw!
O Light Eternal, in Thyself contained!
Thou only know Thyself, and in Thyself
Both known and knowing, smile on Thyself!
That very circle which appeared in Thee,
Conceived as but reflection of a light,
When I had gazed on it awhile, now seemed
To bear the image of a human face
Within itself, of its own coloring—
Wherefore my sight was wholly fixed on it.
Like a geometer, who will attempt
With all his power and mind to square the circle
Yet cannot find the principle he needs:
Just so was I, at that phenomenon.
I wished to see how image joined to ring,
And how the one found place within the other.
Too feeble for such flights were my own wings;
But by a lightning flash my mind was struck—
And thus came the fulfilment of my wish.
My power now failed that phantasy sublime;
My will and my desire were both revolved,
As in a wheel in even motion driven,
By Love, which moves the sun and the other stars.

— Dante Alighieri (1265-1321)
Paradiso, XXXIII(1321)

We love you. Please take care of yourself and try to get some rest as well as have some fun!!!
Maybe after the massage you could take the rest of the day off and do the things that bring you joy.

You are a gift to us, and we are so grateful for the joy you bring to our lives.

Love you
