A short diary to say thanks ... but since my gift elf is "An anonymous benefactor," my only option is to say thanks to all.
Last year when al the gift subscription push was going on, I held back because I had been taught that I should not put myself forward and that accepting charity was wrong. I can still hear my father's voice saying "I would rather let my family go hungry than accept charity." So I have made do ... and clearly seeing a few ads was not a big price for the pleasure of being here, reading and learning and being a part (insignificant) of this wonderful community.
Then this morning, I found the email in my mail box. A gift from someone who is both generous and thoughtful. I opened DKos to get my morning jolt ... and no ads! I did not know what I was missing. Thank you for thinking of me.
