A Special Thank You

52 comments

Today I have a special thank you.

I said an intention months ago that came true today. I believed it so readily in my heart, that things would work out, but I wasn’t sure if it was my American sense of entitlement, or my trust in love that made me so sure there would be a happy ending.

My soul sister from across the world left a dangerous situation and came to physical freedom. (Her name is Nikky44 and you see her comment on every one of my posts. Fellow bloggers, you know her since she comments on many of your posts. Facebook friends, you see her on my page Heal Now and Forever. For a short while she wrote NIkky’s Strengths and Weaknesses.)

special thank you

A special thank you

It was months of planning, coordinating, gathering support, hoping, and, for her, enduring heightened abuse.  She and three kiddos are today free from physical abuse, safely in Canada. And will now embark on the journey to be emotionally free. So that she sees what I and her friends see in her: She is wonderful, innocent, exceptionally intelligent, kind, and wholly good.

Join me in being this special thank you. Please send her and her three children some love by  commenting below!

Thanks Louise!

Thank you for putting the chickens away? Are you on a farm or putting away grocery?

Yeah, I think thank yous are important too. Whenever someone cooks in the family, we tell the person thank you. Before the work is even done, we say it too.

And so glad to know Nikky’s finally in Canada. Now, she can especially be a light to other women who are in similar situations. Man, what a weight off. Now, the living really begins!

Nikky44- I admire your courage and strength to move out of a what must have been a nightmarish situation. I am grateful for this triumphant event and that you and your children can live peacefully and freely! Love ~Naila

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

Thanks Naila! Thanks for your empathy! Again and again!

Nikky44

Thank you Naila. It needed a lot of strength and courage that i didn’t have. I took them both from my friends, from Jodi. I trusted and had Faith.

Love you too!

Nikky44

Kim, I was so tempted to tell you whenever we met on Facebook for a “goodnight”, but I was also so scared it wouldn’t work and I didn’t want to worry you.
Love you <3

Jodi- Your daughter sounds super cute and very intelligent too!!! Her deep and mature sense of wonder is really something. What DOES thank you India and frailty mean? Where you able to answer her questions? I love that you and your husband thank each other and the kids for the little things. It’s the little things after all that matter in life. I’m grateful that you wrote about this because it makes me appreciate how my mom always thanks me for favors she asks or doesn’t ask me to do and it does make me feel acknowledged. Your entry has also inspired me to increase doing this for others without feeling that its excessive or unnecessary. On a separate note, I laughed out load upon reading the line about your uncertainty that things would work out, and not being sure if it was your “American sense of entitlement” or your trust in love that made you so sure there would be a happy ending. = ) Your honest and candid writing about your thoughts and experiences strikes me as humorous at times (in a very endearing way of course). Anyway, i’m SO happy that Nikky44’s story had a happy ending!!!! I appreciate your seemingly unending optimism and faith in a positive outcome!!!! Love ~Naila

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

Naila,
You are so sweet for writing all of this. Your kindness is never ending. you always notice the nuances of beauty in everything you do and in everyone you touch. I hope people are appreciating it more than they used to!
Love,
Jodi

Nikky 44 is a beautiful woman with a new story to commence writing. This is the story the world should be buzzing about. We ( and not me) since I am not privy to all the details should write an OP Ed piece to remind the world there is still love and compassion on this planet. Nikky – love from the Bay Area (although you had much from the wonderful, Linda. Jodi – beautifully stated. I hope the universe is listening.

Nadine Feldman

Thank God that you are free now, Nikky44. And thank you for committing to your own healing, which can break the cycle for your children as well. Having once upon a time extricated myself from a violent situation, I know that it’s not easy to break the patterns of low self-esteem, but I am proof that it can be done. All the best in your new journey!

Thanks for sharing this, Jodi. And to Nikky, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU. Many congratulations and so much love, to you and your children. I know how much beautiful strength you have inside, no matter how scary change might be sometimes. I was wondering how things were with you … hoping you were okay. Glad to hear this news. Be well,

I wish I replied as soon as I read it with all the beautiful comments. I wish I typed and expressed all the positive emotions I had with all the love I am getting on this page.

Today I feel speechless. All I can say is THANK YOU!

Without you Jodi, it wouldn’t have come true. Without your help, I would still be there now, or maybe not as it was getting worse day after day.
I remember your first reply to one of my comments, and I directly knew you will be THAT important in my life.

Thank you again, and a big thank you too to everyone who took the time to read and / or comment, to everyone who showed me support, who just prayed, or who believed me.

Love you <3

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

Thanks sweetie, I don’t think I did anything really just believed in someone really pure and smart and strong. That’s all I did from the beginning. But we just get each other and that makes it so fun and easy. Whatever I say usually fits for you! This has been such a pleasure to communicate with someone so like minded! I’ll keep being here!
Love you too,
xoxox
Jodi

I need to say thank you again for this post and all the love. It’s 3am, feeling so lonely and unable to sleep. Coming back here helped a lot. Thank you Jodi <3

You’re are so welcome! Big hug! xoxoxo

Nikky44

Not only you kept your promise by always being here, but you did more, much more than I ever expected from anyone, more than in my dreams. I used to read those comments so often but avoided that post lately because I lost contact with most and i miss them all so much that it hurts, but today I need it <3 <3 Thank you <3

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

You’re welcome! Hey, they are all right there as you can see by your response on Facebook! It doesn’t have to hurt. You can go to any of their blogs and comment still, they will write you right back, this might give you more support!

Nikky44

You’re right, I can do it… I’m stopping myself. Shame, fear, guilt?? I’m not sure which one is stopping me.

Jodi Lobozzo Aman

At their center they are all the same. There is nothing to figure out, just love yourself, have compassion for yourself, stop judging.

Dr Linda Hamilton

Dear Nikky,

Don’t hold back. And don’t look back… you are only moving forward now – well, of course… you can stop by and smell the roses on the way! It takes great strength to move on like you did… many never do.

There is so much that life has to offer you now. I wish you all the happiness in the world, and in Canada.

Sincerely,
Linda

Dear Jodi,

Thank you for sharing your gratitude out loud. This is so important and something we have spoken about before. The rest of the world deserves to hear Nikky’s story. It will empower many others to do the same.

Sincerely,
Linda
