Good morning on this first day of 2012.
As I start a new year, my 4th year of blogging, I want to take a moment to thank you.
:: Thank you for your friendship. Because of blogging, my world has expanded. I am so grateful for the many friends I have made. And friends you are.
:: Thank you for your patience. I try to be honest here on this old blog and write from my heart. That means I occasionally step up on my soapbox and let ‘er rip. No one has ever accused me of being passionless and that passion sometimes overflows and I simply have to write. And you, my friends, read what I have to say and agree or disagree and that’s what makes it all worthwhile. (Once a teacher, always a teacher.)
:: Thank you for your kindness and compassion. In the midst of all that’s going on in my life, I know I can write about it and you will listen. Sometimes I just allude to something. Sometimes the enormity of it all cannot be contained and I have to write about it at length. Through it all, you are there, with words of wisdom and love.
:: Thank you for your sense of humor.I have a wicked sense of humor. So do you. Most of the time, I see the world through a humorous prism. Your humor shines through in your comments and I often laugh out loud as I read them.
:: Thank you for your generosity.You are so generous, my friends, with advice, with words that touch my heart, with ideas, with unexpected presents for no reason other than you care, with wisdom.
:: Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to leave a comment. I am busy. You are busy. Sometimes I want to leave a comment on a blog post and I simply don’t have the time or energy. That must happen to you, too. So I deeply appreciate it when you do. I’ve said before how much I love the dialogue that happens here. It makes my day.
:: Thank you for following.If you are a follower, thank you. I appreciate every one of you.
:: Thank you to all my newer readers. I appreciate the wonderful emails and comments you’ve left. If I can find you, I promise to visit each of you in the days ahead.
:: Thank you for enriching my life.
each and every day.
