Dear Item Shop Ladies,
thank you for all of your hard fucking work,
thank you for your bad-ass positivity and love,
thank you for being standing your ground and taking no shit,
thank you for spreading a message of progression,
thank you for being (a) real life magical girl(s).
I wish MissCherry a speedy recovery and better health in the future, and for Glas and Schpog to make it through this time without any additional bumps in your roads, so you’ll all be healthy and reunited as quickly as possible. I’m sure we will meet again soon.
For those not in the know: MissCherry (the petite girl in the photos) is in an induced coma due to a chronic disease she’s suffering from. Glasmond (redhead) owns the store these girls work at, and their mission is to create a home base for nerds and geeks and people who need it. They are some of the warmest, loveliest, open-minded people I’ve ever met, they’ve taught me a lot about myself, my own body, and they’ve inspired a lot of new thought processes and the way I’m using this blog. I consider Glas a mutual confidante and friend, and while I haven’t spent as much time with the other two girls, I can vouch for how special they are.
You can read about MissCherry’s situation here. Glas is asking all of you to pray for her, so that she will make a speedy recovery! This is not a question of money. It’s not a question of what you believe in. If you have a positive thought to spare, they need it. Feel free to make a post, or draw something (these girls are all talented artists who are very drawable themselves). Please tag it with #prayformisscherry. Take a look at their blogs, and if you dig a little deeper, I’m sure each of you will find at least one message worth hanging on to. These girls are extremely positive in the most loving and simultaneously kick-ass manner I’ve witnessed, and they’ve helped many many people (including myself) by spreading this feeling. Now they need yours. Go ahead, #prayformisscherry.
