A Moment of Thanks
Wow, I've gotten a couple blog awards this week. The one above was given me by Terri and the Awesome Site Award from Belinda ... thanks to my fellow bloggers for these awards. I've gotten a couple awards over the short time that I've written this blog but I've only recently learned how to put the images up on the blog itself.
I feel like I should give the acceptance speech that I would love to give, but then that might seem like I was mocking the good intentions of those who gave me the award and make me seem ungrateful.
Over time I've come to really love the blog community that has gathered around Chewing the Fat, I'll write something and wonder who will comment ... or think 'I know Susan will like this' or 'MDN will like that' ... then I check back to see if the people I've thought of will comment. I'm usually right. It's cool.
Many of you I've never met, many I'll never meet, but it's been great meeting people of like mind here on 'Fat'. It's nice to realize that you are less alone than you are and that there are people who bother to come and listen to what you have to say.
So, I did want to thank Terri and Belinda for their awards, but I also wanted to take just the briefest of moments to say 'Thanks' to the readers ... lurkers and commenters ... for dropping by. I appreciate the words of encouragement, I appreciate the support and I appreciate that we are all on the journey together.
