It's my (big-deal-ends-in-zero) birthday, so I won't linger.
Just thought I'd take the opportunity to say thank you for being a gift to me. So many of you have offered thanks to me over the years, but you need to know that the giving works both ways. This community of writers has given me SO MUCH. There have been times when I've literally clasped my hand over my mouth as I've read certain words of affirmation or encouragement. Times when I've been surprised by heartfelt, personal emails sent for the sole purpose of offering me support, advise, or empathy.
Your words go deep into this gal's heart.
So THANK YOU. I really love my tribe. :)
And now I'm going to kick off my birthday with coffee and a practically perfect muffin from my favorite coffee shop. Because...sugar.
Have a glorious weekend!
