I want to say a very sincere thank you to all of you that have kept reading my blog the past few months when I have been so sick plus could not read well because of my eyes and the need for the cataract surgery. It has taken all I have in me to write and I was not able to read everyone’s blog or even facebook like I wanted. My prayer is after this next surgery May 2, my eyes after the couple weeks to be easy with them…will be up to reading everyone’s again. But thank you…thank you..thank you…for keeping up with me even though I could not return the favor right now. It has really touched my heart.
Sometimes, when the mojo and fight is waning, someone does something out of the blue that helps you gather your strength once more and get ready to fight again. Today I got a package and in it was a hat with MOJO on it. Thank you so much friend for the gift. I LOVE IT!! Son says he is going to glue glittery red stones on the letters to jazz it even more.
a sweet and generous action that helped me regain my momentum again. I will be resting all week this next week to get ready for the RFA on the 9th and I am thankful for that. Sometimes when you think you do something think it does not mean much, believe me when I say it does. Every kind act, every kind word is like a hand reaching out to lift someone up. And I have been blessed by so many that have sent me prayers, wonderful thoughts, funny emails, gifts and even helped me get to the doctor and I am so blessed. I hope you know how much it means to me. Hugs and love from me.
Good morning from Sunny Colorado. This morning the internet/phone guy comes to hook us up so we may be offline for a little while. So, I will post my post after he leaves as he is due any time. Meanwhile, I hope you all have a wonderful morning and that the sun is shining for you….if not outside…then inside for sure.

I have waited a long time to do this because I wanted to see if those that SHOULD do it would step up to the plate and do it. And they did NOT. Instead they still denigrate us. A small group of women including me helped run a page online. We took a page that was a trash page with such ugliness going on that you could not even know what the page was about. I am sure you have seen pages like this. Just look at fan pages of stars or products. Any where you look, you can find it.
And there was bullying going on, personal drama going on, hate, malice, ugly talk and so much partying you could not tell what the page was about….it was a trash page. And we cleaned up that page. Yes, we made many mad because they did not like their “Party” page gone but we were cleaning up and deleting and removing those that caused trouble. And the people in charge never once backed us, thanked us. They let those on the page believe they didn’t have anything to do with the clean up and they did. They were the ones telling us to clean it up. But, I guess some people just like a scapegoat to give those trouble makers who complained and get them off their backs.
All that is ok. I am proud of the work we did because today that page is still a relatively clean page, small number of people but it is a clean page and the true meaning of the page can be seen. I left the page when I decided one day that I could no longer be a part of something where I was not appreciated. A few more followed me and then a little later…a few more.
And so, I want to do what those in charge did not do and that is to say THANK YOU to those women who worked so hard, put in so many hours working to keep that page nice. I personally worked for over a year and so did most of these women. There were times only three of us were watching that page 24 hours a day to keep off the ugliness that those who were mad because there were now rules to follow would come in and do posts just to cause trouble and go back and brag about it in their other groups. They would deliberately try to sabatage the page.
We took abuse, got called names that were horrific, were attacked by disgruntled fans and no one stood up for us except ME. I stood up for those women and I continue to stand up for them. They are AWESOME women who offered and contributed MUCH to this site and were not appreciated at all. They spent hours working for a cause they believed in, going above and beyond the call of duty to keep the page clean, create things to sell, run fundraisers, contributed and were literally used up.

So, ladies I say to you….THANK YOU from my heart for all you did for I know you did it for me…to help me and for the cause you believed in. YOU ARE AWESOME!! I know you stayed as long as you did because you didn’t want to let me down and that means a lot. You ARE and WERE valuable in making the page a nice place to be and the owners are now reaping the benefit of all our hard work. They are not the ones keeping the page clean now. They are just keeping tidy what we already did. I can not begin to tell you how much I appreciated you then and how much I appreciate you NOW. Just know that what you did was not in vain. The proof is in the page as it is. Yes, they lost a lot of fans when they decided to let all those banned people back in and that was their decision. But, WE cleaned up that page and WE made it an educational, nice, friendly, family oriented page and nothing they say or do now can take that away from us for those that were there…the ones that loved the changes we brought KNOW. So I APPLAUD you ladies and again thank you for a job well done.
