Happy New Year, everyone!
As you may have guessed, one of my many resolutions for 2013 involves the continuation (and improvement) of the Thank You Project. But first, I have to take a moment to thank you.
If your upbringing was anything like mine, you have been conditioned to understand the weight that a handwritten thank you note carries. Perhaps now more so than ever, the laborious task of etching out your thoughts (as opposed to recording them through the ever-impersonal computer) is deeply meaningful and symbolic.
So, as a result, I’ve written a thank you note for each and every one of you. The hard copy is a little bit crooked thanks to my scanner (and, regrettably, my penmanship). To make things a bit easier, I’ve typed it out below, as well. I hope it helps you understand not only by handwriting, but also how deeply I appreciate your support, your readership and your feedback.
Each of you is hugely integral to the success of this project, and I am forever grateful for you.
To my dear Friends,
Thank you so, so much for your support and encouragement in 2012. Without your continued readership and feedback, the Thank You Project would have been abandoned long ago.
After only eleven posts and more than 2,130 views, I couldn’t be more excited for a New Year filled with gratitude.
In the New Year, I am resolving to shed my fears surrounding the Thank You Project and work to deliver new, engaging content for you to read (and maybe even share!) Thanks to your loyal readership, I am now prepared to stop worrying and start doing.
So, in an effort to recognize each of you, I have some “thank yous” to run through. To my behind-the-scenes editors who support me non-stop — thank you. To all of the people who have called, e-mailed, texted or commented with kind words of encouragement — thank you. To those of you who submitted or inspired content — thank you. And to all of my silent readers out there — thank you. I am so deeply grateful for each and every one of you.
With love and gratitude,
