A few days ago, I wrote about a speech given at a high school graduation where the young man thanked all those who had helped him over the years. Around this time, I was wondering whether I should continue with the blog ... or not. It seems so few people read it that I started to think I was wasting my time.
Then a sweet friend left a comment on that blog, thanking me for being "uplifting and inspiring." And I was persuaded that I should keep writing. If I touch only one life, isn't that enough?
How lovely that she should thank me for a post about gratitude. Perhaps gratitude is catching. I wrote her back, thanking her for her comment. And so it went--a blog about thanking others prompted her to thank me, which, in turn, prompted me to thank her.
Joy for today: being grateful.
