Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for all of my blogging friends that leave me comments.

When we each started our blog, there was a definite excitement as to what to post, will I attract readers, will I get comments. Can anyone deny that? Sure, our blogs are our own masterpiece. We write about what stirs our heart and touches our soul whether it be stories about our most special place - our home, or pieces that we have "fixed", crafts we've made, places we've gone to, family, friends, joys, sorrows, whatever it is that inspires us on any given day. We open ourselves to the world, not knowing whether today will be a day for adoration, commendation or condemnation. Who doesn't get excited to see new comments on your posts? I really don't think anyone is immune, whether you are one that gets two comments to a post or 73, they are all fun to read. I thank each of you for leaving me comments. Your comments bring joy to my heart and soul and I thank you.

Thank you to Rhondi for hosting Thankful Thursday each week. Be sure to stop by to read more Thankful Thursday posts.

Happy Thankful Thursday. I agree with you, blogging has become more than just posting some words, it has become another way to create. Your blog is lovely and your posts are wonderful. Karen

And you, Joyce are truly one of the best commenters in cyberspace. I always smile when I hear from you. Thank you so much for keeping me company on my trip to Japan. Somehow, seeing your comments make me feel like I'm home.

It is always a joy to visit with you.

Yup … comments are fun to read for sure! Methinks in the year I’ve been blogging, I find I enjoy them more all the time … but it’s more important to me to write what I choose than what I think others might want to read ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Hi Joyce!
I couldn't have said it better myself! Yes, it's the acceptance that whatever the photos, whatever the words, that someone out there loved it, appreciated it or even just thought it was ok. I love your blog Joyce and I'm so happy and thankful I have you for a blog friend!!
Hugs, Sherry
Great post!

Its so true what you wrote. Blogging has become a great way to express and exchange information and meet people and I really look forward to reading my favourite blogs each day whenever I can. In turn I like to leave a comment. It would be a very "quiet" blog if we only read and left..
I enjoy reading your blog.
I hope you've had a great day.
