FedCon was AMAZING! I haven't had such a good time in a VERY long time. I got the opportunity to travel without overbearing parents & needy children (although I missed them a bit). The nonstop parties reminded me of the days of my youth ☺️.
I actually enjoyed traveling 19 hours & 3 flights each way just to see my feisty heroine, and I'd GLADLY do it all over again because you certainly didn't disappoint! You're an awesome, AWESOME lady & in my days of better health, long before all the steroids I'm filled with, I would have jumped right on stage with you! (Yep, queue security 😂😂)
Thank you for the memories--my Nana told me that memories can never be remade, but can last a lifetime. No matter how much time I have left, the memories of FedCon 2023 will remain among the best I'll ever have. And that is because of you!
Thank you for introducing me to some of the nicest and most wonderful people I'll ever meet: Astrid is such a sweetheart ☺️. A gentile soul is she. Jess is soooo cool! They embraced me like family, and that is the best thing I could ask for. Josef...a wild one, but he's a sweet and loving person. Most of all, THANK YOU for introducing me to MaLinda. I'll always have family in Germany because of her. She was a wonderful translator, tour guide, and showed me beautiful vistas and places I'd never imagined I could go. She even took me to the airport. I'll miss her but it's good to have friends in all corners of the world. Life is made up of a series of moments and experiences, and these moments I'll never forget.
Most of all, when you said you'd pray for me, I wept. There's no greater love in the world than the love of someone who will petition to God for you. The irony is that I've prayed for you too--and when I see you happy and full of energy, I know God has heard both of us 😊.
It's been a rough few years for me too--from surviving a spine fracture in 2010, to the Lupus diagnosis at 20 weeks of pregnancy that same year, and the cardiomyopathy at 37 weeks, to a paralyzing accident and a heart attack in 2020, to advanced heart failure in 2021. All I wanted to do was to meet you...and I did. Finally. But not just you, I got to meet some amazing people who are just as great. It was all a dream come true. And I know that you're accustomed to people admiring you, but I did that before I met you. You're truly royalty to me now--one of a kind. And again, I thank you for the memories. I can't wait to see you in Raleigh! I'm bringing my little twin with me this time because she can't wait to meet you too!
All my love, 𝓜𝓲𝓶𝓲💙
P.S.: my mom says you can really have me 😂. And I told her again that you're not Madonna 🤣
