An Expression of Gratitude

When I began blogging, only a few short weeks ago, Dan was one of my first acquaintances. Daily I contribute three of my blessings to his ongoing Gratitude blog. Reflecting on my abundant blessings is a good way to end the day and I thank Dan for providing the venue for that to happen.

But Dan offers much more than that. Dan likes to sow spiritual seeds and they encourage me to think and act with mindfulness. In addition he has generously given unstinting encouragement through daily responses and genuine interest. I am grateful for Dan.

To my 'ancient of friends', Alden, I would like to give thanks for the adventures on the high seas that you so colourfully relate and the ability that you have to throw a philosophical slant on daily activities. Thank you for your ongoing support and your ribald sense of humour.

Meri has opened her heart to her readers in sharing her wonderful gift of poetry. I feel privileged to read your work and view the unique way that you express yourself though your art.
Thank you for the soulful beauty of your words.

I feel lucky to have found Reya. Her topics of discourse are varied and eruditely written. She wholeheartedly responds to the many comments on her postings and displays an authentic interest in fellow bloggers' pages. Reya posts words and pictures that make you think. Thanks Reya.

Violet has provided me with much joy through her variety of photographs allowing me to live vicariously in a stunningly different part of the world. She is warm and generous in her ongoing comments. I am glad I have met Violet.

Mary is the 'm' lady ~ mesmerizing, moving, moody, mellow photographs which are often perfectly matched with a succinct quote.
I'm grateful for Mary's magical take on the world.

My fellow bloggers in order of mention are:

Dan ~
Alden ~
Meri ~
Reya ~
Violet ~
Mary ~

I am grateful for you all. Thank you.


  1. Oh, my, thank you. The feeling is mutual.

  2. I'm thrilled to be counted among this amazing group of writers, and more thrilled that you're blogging now.

    Gratitude is one of the most healing conditions in the whole world, I agree completely! Thanks for the honor.

    This is beautiful!

  3. Ah, thank you, Delwyn! I am so glad we found each other.

    Now, I'm off to meet the others.

  4. Thankyou Delwyn - we had our fortnightly 'Certificates' assembly on Friday at school where we recognise the hard work and achievements of children - so it is fitting and nice to get my own certificate this week. :-)

  5. Thank you, thank you! What a nice surprise. Now to go through your found poetry one by one. . .
