So here we are at the end of 2010.
I could tell you it was the best year of my life, but in truth – it wasn't.
I could tell you it was the worst year of my life, but that wouldn't be accurate either. There were days when it felt pretty awful, but the year in its entirety doesn't deserve that title.
There were also moments of accomplishment and joy. Whether I shared the positives or the negatives, I could feel your overwhelming support. In fact, there were amazing triumphs you made happen for me.
I thank you for that.
Some people, mistakenly, think blogging is a form of one-way communication.
There is a community which has developed around Twenty Four At Heart. It's a community of young and old, male and female. It's a community of intelligent, accepting, individuals who aren't afraid of a good laugh now and then. Some of you I've met in person, some of you I've only met via email or Twitter. Some of you are new here and some of you have been here since the beginning.
I didn't know it would be like this when I began blogging. I really had no idea I would soon care about people all over the world – many of whom I had yet to meet. I didn't know many of those same people would also come to care about me. This simple fact touches me deeply again and again.
I have learned so much from you.
Thank you so much for choosing to spend time here and letting me share my life with you.
Please be safe tonight as you ring in the New Year!
