Paula, Anne, Sue, Rebecca, Ellen, Rosiland, Carolina, Wendy, Marina, Stephanie, Jen, Barbara, San, and Libby I am thrilled to have the opportunity to grow and learn the wonders of our world from each other. YES, this is a world.
Never have I found such caring, kind, intelligent, and helpful people. I started blogging at the end of last year and I quickly realized what a special community we are all apart of. I have made literally hundreds of friends from across the globe. We have to be the luckiest generation of writers to write. We have the internet and in seconds our messages and comments are whisked across the blogosphere. Not only can we communicate to people from other cultures, we have a rare opportunity to learn about their culture, family, politics, and country. How AWESOME is that?
Yesterday I came across several blogs helping in the relief of our country's tornado and flooding disasters and before that writers have donated their works for anthologies for the relief of Japan and Queensland. In these turbulent and uncertain times, knowing all of you are out there showing your love and support brings peace and joy to my heart. Please understand how special each and every one of you are. You mean the world to me and I just wanted to let you all know that.
SO my friends I leave you with this thought, never give up on your hopes and dreams. Never give up on life .... keep fighting. And, never give up on our community. We all need each other.
Have a pleasant and loving Wednesday.
