Gratitude

In general I'm a very grateful person. I appreciate things that people do for me and I generally try to reciprocate, but how do I do that when so many people made me feel so incredibly special?

I don't know, but I'll try.

I've been doing this thing I love for awhile now and I have seen generosity abound. I am so warmed by it. From food donations at Christmas to my favorite food bank, to gifts that took my breath away. This, though, this collective show of support has made me see this in a new light. 

Sometimes when you do this, because it can be so hard (rewarding is for another blog) that you lose faith in humanity (fake reviews, ahem, fear of LOTS of things, losing things you love, etc.) it can take a toll on your outlook. But then you all come together and you show me that I am okay, that I am important and that what I do is good then my heart overflows with such joy that words don't do it justice.

Thank you for the support. Thank you for seeing me as beautiful. Thank you for voting when it got tedious (I'm sure it did). Thank you for putting up with my begging. 

Most of all, thank you for all your hard work and effort to make me Ms. TER. The benefits have been incredible for me and I want you to know that I appreciate your involvement, your help, but most of all because you believed that I deserved it. 

Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
