A Big Texas Thank You!

I have found that people want to please others; at least most people! Not all, but most. With that in mind, I have also observed that the best things in life are the little things that sometimes go un-noticed. When someone smiles at me at the grocery store for no reason except we just notice each other, it's really nice. It makes you feel good that someone takes the time to actually smile at you! Another thing is when you drive down the street. In my community which is a small town in east Texas, an old farmer driving an equally old truck lifting a few fingers from the top of the steering wheel to say 'howdy' is a usual thing. It used to be more frequent, but it still happens. That makes me feel good too. It may be a small thing, but to me it's big. And the day is better, because someone took the effort to make it so. That's how I feel about the comments on my blog. When I got my very first comment, I didn't know what to do!! How do I 'Smile' or 'Wave' back?? Well, commenting on your blogs is one way, but I want to do more. I want to thank you. I know I can't write a personal thank you note to each of you as the time goes by, but please know, I read every comment and I appreciate every one of them. I've been so excited to see you new ladies actually sign up to 'follow' my blog!!! It's so cool!

Now as I go to your blogs and enjoy your posts, I'm going to smile at you as I comment. Picture a big cheesy grin on my face, and a wave and a hope that you have a great day. I've loved getting to know you all better by going to your older posts and catching up with you. Wow! What awesome and talented people you are! I've had so much fun and gotten so much inspiration from each of you. It's kind of like I am getting a new magazine in the mail EVERY DAY and it's one of my favorites!! I'm really looking forward to the future too, because I know that y'all are going to have some of the most beautiful blogs for me to look at!!!

Hi Doni:
What a sweet sentiment you share today. I know that comments always mean so much to all of us. It's a way to let another know that you stopped by and said "hello".

Thank you so much for the cup of tea and comfy chair you had waiting for me when I got home from my trip last night. It was a truly friendly gesture, and I hope some day to return the favor for you. I've also joined your followers and will look forward to getting to know you better in 2010...and beyond.

Blessings, my sweet new friend.

My gosh Doni, after reading this wonderful post of yours, I lowered my head in shame. I'll be the first to admit that I for one have a bad habit of stopping in, reading and catching up with what friends are up to and sometimes not leaving a comment. I am so guilty of doing that even though I am THRILLED to read my many comments from everyone when I post.

I wish there was a smile button that I could press to let everyone know that I did stop by and think of them today.

You have just reminded me of the importance of taking the time to stop and say hello. Thank you!!!!

With a family and a full time job, I have no idea how everyone can visit and leave comments to every friend on their list...everyday! I really admire them for having the time to do so. Unfortunately, I don't have that time so I find myself "sectioning" my side list and catching up with multiple posts by the week or when I have time on the weekends. I'm too nosey to miss anything! ;)

Thanks again Doni...I'm so glad I met you. You are a bright spot in this blogging world and I just love your fresh and sincere outlook. Thank you for reminding me what I love about blogging the most...the FRIENDS!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
