Ces's Show of Love



Hello Friends,
So, like this morning I wake up at 2:00 am cause I couldn't sleep. I came to check out
the blog and maybe go and check on a few of you when I see this message from my
SisterFriend Ces of Cesandherdishes.
I've been a crying fool ever since. I have known Ces for a little over a year and half now.
I get that it's blogland. I really do. There are so many of you beautiful souls that
I have spoken to on the phone and emailed and I appreciate EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU.
You don't have to leave comments. Your lives are busy with other important things to
do, but you take time come and visit and it means sooooooooo much to me. I appreciate
every single comment and every visit. I am so very grateful to have and call you friends.
Ces, you will never ever know how this has touched me. I am so blown away by your
show of sisterhood and friendship. I will treasure this always. You have made me
feel soooooo very, very special. Again I am blessed to know you and have you in my life.
I look forward to meeting all of you someday. Thanks Ces again and again. You are going
to make me send you a ticket to Jersey he he he he! Hugs
V

Oh Vee, Somehow, I know that when we meet someday soon, it is as if we have known each other for ages because I think we have. This Internet connections are easily dismissed by others and I too tend to do the same. However in blogging, with our art, we share more than vital statistics. We get to know each other's dreams, aspirations and feelings. So many people have known me for years and have worked with me Monday to Friday for 23 years and have not seen any of my paintings or drawings, don't even know that I do. They have never read any of my essays or posts. So who knows who more? Yet here, you and Bella know what makes me sad or happy and what I fear or despise or hate or love! I love you Vee. You are in my very short list.

That's very touching. So much love in the room :{ making me cry. I know what you both mean, I've met some wonderful friends in blog land, and V you are at the top of my list. I'm very fortunate to know you. And hope to meet you one day too. :)

I comment this on Ces blog... But I believe that I must say it here too... because I'm looking to a beautiful sun... even knowing that I can't touch it, because I'm to far away, it shines in my hair...

That poem is a very beautiful poem and every word is so true. You show sooo much kindness and I really appreciate every comment you leave. It's very encouraging especially coming from a wonderful, talented illustrator like your. It put a smile on my face. I never meet you in person but I can tell you have a good heart.

What a sweet, sweet post :) blogland really is an incredible place with so many creative souls. And Ces' work is really amazing.

This is so sweet Vee, you are so loved and cherished that there are now images and words of praise to immortalize you. :) That's what's so great about blogging, we love each other for who we really are, without all the other baggage of the outside world. We can support each other and love each other without the restraints of the "real world". My blog friends see more of the real me than most people in the "real world" ever will. They support me and care enough to check in and see what I am doing and bless their souls make comments about it! Oh my, Ces's sweet gesture has made me gush sentimentally. ;) I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes online at 2:00 am when I can't sleep!

Vanessa Brantley Newton said...

Okay you Ladies have me all messed up once again at 12:48am still can't sleep. You words are like healing balm and they are good for what is ailing me right now. Thank you everyone of you for your kind works. Please know it's heart felt and genuine. Thanks again and again girlfriends. You guys are the best.
Hugs to you all.

Oh, V, my dancing ladybug!! (Yes you are!!) Isn't it amazing how much love you get when you never even realized that you've given it in the first place? Well, that's the kind of honesty I see and I love about you. You are just so spontaneously full of love!

I'm so glad I found you here in this mad, mad blogland! oxoxox

Tamara Henderson said...

Your welcome Vanessa!!! Your encourage me to everytime I look at your art and read your blog I get inspired. Sometimes I come visit your blog and my other favorite blogs while I'm at my 9 to 5 and it really put a smile on my face. All your illustrations have such great personality and character you are truly blessed! You have a wonderful day!!! :)

Tessa said...

Oh Vanessa...how beautiful you are. Inside and out. I've missed you, girlfriend, but life has not been throwing strawberries just now. Soon come, I'm sure. Ces does manage to capture the essence, doesn't she. xx

Shell said...

This is why I love blogging. You make real connections with people and they begin to feel like online family.
Ces captured the essence of you Vanessa.

Bella Sinclair said...

Isn't this something??? You are so loved, sweetheart. And not only because you are one talented and funny lady, but because you are all heart. You give so so SOOO much loving and joy and happiness. I love you, Nester!

Cheryl Lynn said...

This is the most moving tribute. Ces is so brilliant and her work is magnificent. You, Ms. Vee are more than deserving. God has truly blessed you with a heart for the people and it shows with all of the loving comments you receive from your blogger buddies. I for one am more than grateful to have you in my life.

Much love and affection to you, my sweet.
