I have had quite a strange two weeks. First, as I mentioned before, my laptop decided not to work anymore, so I had to fire up my old one. It is fine, but it is far too slow. Also, after a hectic storm here, lightning stuck one of the cables just outside my house. I got such a fright I nearly jumped out of my skin, and that caused the whole area to be out of power for a few days. I do have back up procedures, but it does not make for wonderful internet connections.
Let me get to the point though. When I started up my old laptop I happened upon some of the history on my old laptop, and I saw so many familiar names from bloggers who I now consider good internet friends. It struck me then how long I have know some of you and how much you mean to me. Being cut off for a while made me lonely, and I missed you.
So, this is a post of gratitude for you, for reading about my ups and downs and sharing of yourselves and your experiences with me. Thank you for that, and thank you for giving me some of your precious time to read what I have written when I am down…the kindness in you comments is always appreciated by me. I cannot tell you how many times I have had to reach for a tissue, because of the kind words left here for me on the worst days.
Thank you, you all mean so much to me.
