Just noticed that I've received 999 comments on my blog as of right this minute (22:23 December 17 2008.) Which means...the very next comment left on my blog will be my one thousandth!
Ok, so that's probably not very exciting to anyone else, but...hey, I think it's pretty cool. Especially considering that most of the comments were left by the same people. I am grateful to everyone who reads my ramblings but offer special thanks to the following wonderful blog friends:
Who all leave comments on a very regular basis, which lets me know that I am not just writing words into a void! Because it's such a lift to know people are reading my entries, and that they find my thoughts interesting enough to comment on.
And the above friends have gone beyond merely commenting on the blog. Some privately emailed me words of comfort and caring during my triple whammy of crises earlier in the year, others have emailed to ask if I'm ok when I've been absent from blog-land for a while, and Maria even generously invited me to come stay with her in Venice for a few days this past October. I really appreciate their support and feedback!
