Okay, I'm going to post this before I over-analyze my feelings and become afraid I'll be judged as an overly sentimental, smarmy, mushy-mouthed old foob. Here goes.
There aren't a lot of people in my sparsely populated area who are interested in the same kinds of things that I am. That's why I totally treasure all of you friends I've made through blogging.
I learn so much from all of you on a daily basis. Each and every one of you is so much more interesting while sharing your knowledge than a book could ever be. You unselfishly take the time to send help and support. You make me smile and laugh (and cause my morning latte to come out my nose) on a daily basis. I regain confidence in humanity when I read of your faith, beliefs, and moral convictions.
You are a bunch of the most caring people I've ever come into contact with. Hand-written notes (who takes the time to do that anymore?), little handmade gifts, recipes and patterns shared and sent with love. I feel I could ask anything of any of you, and if at all possible, you would deliver.
I'm really not a proponent of the runaway pace of technological advances our society is currently experiencing. But I sure am glad blogging on the Internet came about because of this same technology.
I am truly blessed, because blogging has brought all of you into my life.
