Only $332 to go!!!! {And an apology and an amendment}

First of all I can't believe there's only $332 to go and we still have 3 days left!  Thank you ALL for all your generosity, support and encouragement!  

Second, I am very sorry to say that of course I forgot several very important people on my thank you list that I sent out the other day.  I was so tired and I knew it was dangerous operating my computer in that state but I went ahead and did it anyway.  Now I fear the people who I left off that list may feel as though they don't mean as much to me as the others -- but they would be very wrong and I am very, very sorry.  

I keep thinking of this scene from Moonstruck (one of my favorite movies of all time).  Ronny Cammareri (Nicolas Cage) says: "Love don't make things nice.  It ruins everything.  It breaks your heart.  It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect.  The stars are perfect. Not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and break our hearts and love the wrong people and die."  

I am most definitely not perfect and I feel as though I have been doing a better job of making a mess this week than keeping things as perfect as they were on Sunday.  The only way it would have been more perfect is if the following people were there: Rich (my mom's partner and someone who has brought great joy into my family), Rosa + Joyce (my husband's beautiful aunts who also bring great joy and happiness to our family), my dear, dear friends, Lilach + Rod + Ella + Sahar + Shai + Eden, Johanna, Lisa, Jenna + Shane + Cooper + Sawyer, Sandy, Jonas, Keren + Sean + Max + Lily, Joanna + The Snead, Jeff + Steph, Ezra + Audrey + Asa + Ida, Pete + Roseanne, Larry + Pam, Bill + Pat, Gina + Dave + Nicole, Micha, and all of my amazing community in Portland and many, many more!!!!  I've probably still left off more people because I am one of the luckiest people in the world who has many, many amazing people in her life.  So please forgive me in advance :).  And thank you again for all your great support!!!!

OK -- off to enjoy Friday and hope that $332 will find its way here by the end of today or this weekend!!!!

Much love,

Andrea
