Thanksgiving in the Rearview

My goal today was to do some research for an upcoming post.  I got distracted and went through the list of blogs that I am a follower of.  Since that list grows every week, the thought of reading through it sometimes gets overwhelming.  Today that wasn't the case.

Here's what I came away from it:  I am thankful for all of you putting your stories out there.  When I read the blogs today, I saw each one of your individual talents and beauty.  I was so grateful to be able to read each and every story that I read today.  I tried commenting on most of them.  I am a better person and, therefore, am able to bring a better blog because of your stories.

I know that I blog about products that are made in the USA.  On the surface, it seems like I am promoting buying stuff.  What I am promoting is the good life that we all deserve.  My way of doing it is to help create jobs.  I believe when people are working and have income, they feel better about their lives because they are able to provide the necessities and a couple of not-so-necessary necessities for their families.  Who doesn't want that for themselves and/or family?  By getting to know each of you through your stories and beautiful pictures, I feel I can bring you a better story.  Looking back at this weekend, beginning with Thanksgiving, I am grateful for all of you.  Thank you for becoming a member of the community of Mom in the USA.  Thank you for your kind words.  Thank you for being who you are and for letting me see that.  I think you are all fantastic and amazing people.

I love comments!
