I get a lot of really really incredible and moving letters from you guys – I really wish I could respond to more of them and I know that sounds totally cheezy, and I HATE it when people say crap like that, but it’s kind of overwhelming trying to follow up and give everybody the attention they deserve. That said, I do read absolutely everything and I feel really honored and privileged and teary-faced to be let into your lives in that small way.
Last week “News To Me” on CNN Headline News reran the piece they did on me last year and I got a new wave of letters from amazing people.
I forwarded one of them on to an associate producer for the show to say thanks and they put up a blog about it!
In other news, my mother is very glad to see that Jesus has made it into my top friends on MySpace.
Mom: Joy! Your brother told me that Jesus is your friend again!
Me: What? Oh. Yeah, I rearranged my page a little…
Mom: Joy, I am SO GLAD. He IS your friend, you know.
Me: I know, Ma.
Mom: Just CALL on him!!
Although… I just realized I have more myspace friends than Jesus does. What do you think that means?
