  3. This is a HUGE honor coming from you: the Highest Level of Survivors and supporters of all levels of humanity I’ve ever known!!

    I can’t tell you how much this means to me! I love you with all my heart! I want to thank you for your courage and your ABSOLUTE SURVIVOR spirit. You talk to me in truth, and only truth. No one is that strong! You light MY candle! You are my good, strong, warrior friend. I am so excited we are building our new relationship.

    You saved me, literally tonight! You are awesome, and i hope you get a PhD in psych so you can counsel others.

    I told you we were going to dinner, remember? YES, i took you. We had chicken and lime-butter, with mashed sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli 😉 It was delicious. We enjoyed it … and we said, “HAHA … we are OK, and you guys are really lucky to know us!? 😉

    Thanks for coming to dinner with me. I may still be sleeping in the basement tonight!!!! So be it. All will be well. You have taught me to be honest and stand my ground. And i will, for that reason: Because Jen said so!

    Power, strength and beauty: That is you!

    Love, mel


    • YOU have always been an inspiration to me my friend. One day I will find that Darn mirror that will show you the you I have always seen!

      Your blog is very important. You have so much to share with everyone who is bulimic or suffers from an eating disorder. Your ideas and your story are very important. You are a Light Mel; you just are.

      Thank you for ‘taking me with you’! YES! That was fun!

      Back at ya, Sister!

      Love jen


  4. OH, and btw, you deserve this honor and SO much more. You are smart and you are also human. Ayn Rand would love you, and so would (and does) the Dalai Lama! 😉 love mel


  5. Jen, I wanted to award you this, but someone beat me to it. 😉 I am so glad you have received it, though! You do light a candle in the darkness of w-k. You keep on shinin’, y’hear!


  6. This recognition coming from you, Jen, means more than I can adequately express in words. Your honest writing is truly a guiding light for us to follow as we attempt to describe ourselves and our journey.

    I hope to pass the Candle Lighter to others before the end of this day set aside to remember Martin Luther King, Jr. Thank you again for your voice of clarity and compassion!


  7. Congratulations to you Jen. I honor you for your courage, and perseverance, and selflessness in reaching out by sharing your story with others, and in doing so, helping.
