It Takes a Village to Raise a Spanko
Janet, my first and most treasured phone buddy and confidant;
Kady, the hand I reach for during hormonal storms, and Christian conviction;
Kay Lynn, the wordsmith who can paint a picture in a paragraph;
PK, who created Cassie, a woman I identify with to the marrow of my bones;
Jenn and RW, a couple of sweet kids I consider my little sisters;
Galway Giirl, a woman who's personal stories inspired my posts more than she knows;
Katia and Emilie, The rebels of the neighborhood who had the courage to break with tradition to find their way;
Ronnie and Daisychain, a couple of adorable Brits with the classic humor I've come to look forward to each week;
Tammy, who sought me out for advice but wound up teaching me a few things;
Ally, My source for Homeopathy and holistic self examination.
Arianna, the poet and visual artist.
The wit, wisdom and invaluable advice of the new girls on the block... Monica, Audra, Surrendering Slowly, Alexandra, Serenity, Stormy, DaisyChristian, Misty, Lynn, and Judy.
And to the person with whom I parted ways over a disagreement, (you know who you are) you were the first person to reach out to me last year, and I will always appreciate that.
All the guys and gals from Joannie and Friends Forum who have come in to lend support and love.
And, of course Bonnie, The Grand Dame of the spanko community and whose posts B'Man would read to me when he considered proposing this relationship.
