Thank YOU!

I wanted to say write a thank you to all of you and this week I found this assignment on Home In the Hollow and loved the story so much, I decided to use it to say thank you.

write a short piece - fiction, non-fiction, poetry, whatever - in which each sentence starts with  the next letter of the alphabet. Starting with "A." So, yes, your finished product will consist of 26 sentences.

~~~~~~~~~~ Using the 26 letters Here is my thanks to YOU

A thought popped into my head today. Because I love blogging so much why not tell you how much I appreciate you and say Thank You.

Clear thoughts of what I wanted to say were flooding my mind. Darn, what happened to them when I started to write? 

Every day I rush to my computer and stab the button to boot up. From the time the music plays stating computer is Ready to 

read/write, I am madly reading emails to see who commented on my blog while I was asleep. Grinning and smiling from reading the comments makes my day!

How many wrote inspiring comments today? I feel so good when I see a comment or 10. Nice people writing  nice thoughts to me.

Others ask questions and that lets me know they read it and want to know. People that I have never met tell me they love my humor and look forward to my posts.

Quitting sometimes comes to my mind since I have a super-sized inferiority complex. Really, I sometimes publish my post and then think what were you thinking, no one will want to read this.
Surely, someone will make fun of this or think I am nuts. 

Thank you so much blogger friends for being there. Until I met all of you, I was bored silly. Very quickly now, Thank you all for writing such wonderful comments, and lifting me up and making me feel good about me. Would you believe I wrote this by starting each new sentence with the next letter from the Alphabet?

X –ray her brain is what you may be thinking right now. You could be right. Zealously writing now, here is my closing sentence,  THANK YOU all my blogger friends.

And you did a wonderful job! Being a blogger comes very naturally to you! Can you imagine how bored we would be without your blogs? Don't even think of quiting, or that you will bore someone. Every comment I see on your blog is very complimentary. Face it gal, you are in your element when you are taking photos, writing text and using your creativity in your blogging!
Getting all of the photos, sentiments, etc. together and creating your blog is truly an art. How could you ever think about quitting? I will personally come to Fla. and knock a knot on your head! :-) Just think, Snapper II would go ballistic! Know that he would be sad if he did not have you and your blogs to keep him entertained. Looking at your blog is the first thing he does when he signs on in the morning. Many people follow your blog every day and all seem to enjoy your wit and outlook on life. No blogging for me since I do not have the expertise that you and Snapper II have. Only thing I can do well is cook. People would surely get bored hearing about that...Quit thinking those negative thoughts! Remember that you have been put on this earth for a reason. Some people have many gifts to give. That you encourage others with your posts every day is surely a gift! Use your gift every day. Voicing your belief in God and your love of nature is a blessing to us all. What about all of the beautiful sights we get to see, such as the museum and your nature trips. X-amine this paragraph and know that this is truly how I feel about your blogging. You are the best! Zee
best is yet to come!
Maybe not grammatically correct, and maybe a litle cheating on the x and the z, but I tried!!
AND this is TRUST, not FICTION!

Awwww! This is very cool and sweet. A nifty idea, Sandra. I would never think you are nuts. Because then that would make ME nuts, too! Your blog has sent many rays of sunshine to my days, and I'm sure for others, too. We are always so much harder on ourselves than we would ever be on our friends. I don't think people can be totally objective about their blogs. And I don't know why that is, are we too close to them? Anyway, at least once I wrote a post that I was very disappointed in and almost deleted. And it got tons of comments!! People loved it. You just never know.

Madeline said...

That should be Truth, not Trust! DUH! See why I can't blog???

Mama-Bug said...

Outstanding Sandra, you are a very creative lady. I always love reading your blog.

Catherine said...

Your post today is challenging and you did a great job. You have a special gift that brings joy to many. Keep up the good work!

Hi Sandra, That little task was a big undertaking and I'm sure, not extremely easy to do... I would love to try that sometime--but the way my busy life is going now, I do not have the time. One of these days I am going to have more time in my life.. Hmmmmm--wonder when that will be????

Thank YOU for blogging. I always enjoy your posts --especially the gorgeous photos and your cute jokes.

What a neat idea and a very lovely thank you. I like stuff like this because it forces me to think rather than just staring blankly at a screen.
I often write blog posts that I think no one will want to read but every day there are the loyal friends that stop by to read my blundering attempts. That's why I love blogging so much :)

Hi my are so sweet and I certainly think you speak for a lot of us! This was clever and I know you won't give up cause we enjoy visiting too much! You really threw me with this..not at all what I expected! ha ha..anyway, thank you too Sandra- (big hug)

This is such a creative thank you. If I wasn't so tired I would have tried to comment the same way. But It's not going to happen. What I can say is thanks for blogging a delightful post everyday and sharing your humor with us. No Brain ex-ray necessary. (:0)

Well written Sandra, what a wonderful post. I think you hit on a lot of thoughts that many of us have had at times.

That is a nice little writing excerise and a very interesting one.
