To the anonymous benefactor that gave a gift subscription last night – thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I am humbled by the generosity we always see here and I wasn’t expecting this at all. There are many more deserving people (at least better writers that publish wonderful diaries), so this is completely unexpected but wonderful in ways I that I can barely express.
When I checked my e-mail this morning at 7 AM and discovered I have been given a gift subscription to Daily KOS I got alert and a big smile came onto my face. You see I am doing pretty well in general, but the daily grind has been dragging me down lately and keeping up with my work has been very hard – last night I was not well in the mind department and couldn’t sleep.
The fact that people here are so generous doesn't surprise me at all and I am always happy to see the heartfelt thanks expressed by others that have recieved a gift subscription, but I never ever expected to be the recipient of such a kind and generous gift.
This site is not always easy and the occasional pie fight can certainly be unpleasant, but make no mistake – the generosity of our members is real and sincere. Thank you, Kossacks, for being the online community where I belong. My first thoughts were “who, how can it be so, why me?” but very quickly I realized that I am just very, very grateful. I mean, someone that I respect on this community values me and my comments (it certainly is not my diaries, I know that!) - how amazing is that? It surely boosts my self esteem.
As I dragged myself to my 9 AM meeting I was still tired, but happy and smiling.
Thank you, whoever you are. Thank you for the gift.
