Sometimes when I open my mail and read comments on posts I've done, it just flat out makes me grin and chuckle. But today, when I came home from work and read my mail, I was actually blown away by your outpouring of support and mutual love of an animal that I just happen to miss. I wrote yesterday that I miss horses. And reading your comments brought tears to my eyes.
Last night, when I sat down to write the next day's post, I realized that I had absolutely nothing. I had nothing to say, I had no pictures I felt inclined to be sharing, and I was wondering again why I do this every day. I really don't wonder that very often, but I must admit that I was doing it last night.
Well, I then began looking through my photo files and came across the pictures of the horses I posted yesterday. On a lark, I opened several up in Photoshop and began to play with them, and before I knew it I was putting my feelings down in a post and it was writing itself.
Reading your comments today stressed upon me one of the biggest things I have learned since beginning this little blog in December 2007. And that is That I Am Not Alone. I'm not alone because you are here. And I'd like to thank you for that.
I'd also like to thank those of you who have written me privately with your stories of living with cancer, and specifically those who are or were in the past caring for a spouse who either has cancer or some other form of disease. We are not alone.
I also received a comment today from someone congratulating me on being one of David McMahon's "Post of the Day" contenders for my Hike to the Light post on my photoblog. Well, thank you very much, David. David's Authorblog is not to be missed. He lives in Australia and has led an interesting and adventurous life. He's also committed to encouraging others. Check it out.
Oh, and apparently I'm now famous. (not really). I've been interviewed and you can read it here. Have a great day, all.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
