I just got an email that someone, or several someones, have given me a lifetime subscription to Daily Kos.  I am deeply touched.  

The most frustrating thing about it is I don't know who to thank.  So......I am going to thank everyone who has been so supportive, and most especially whoever it was that put their money where their mouth is.  

In keeping with that, I now have some spare karma--the good kind--that I will try to spend wisely on those who need it.  

There are truly angels who walk among us.  

This place has been a beacon for me and for many others in both good and dark times.  Some of us stayed up half the night last night worrying about the safety of one of our most beloved members; on other days we laugh and cry with others.  There are rewards for that kind of caring that no amount of money could buy.  

May blessings flow from our house to your house this holiday season.

I was going to use this piece in a story for the Winter Solstice, but it seems appropriate here at this time.

And thank you one and all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
