It’s time to totally embarrass someone. First let me say that I really appreciate all of my readers because I know there are a billion blogs out there so the fact that you take a moment to visit mine means a great deal to me. Your care and support keeps me going, really it does. I know that many of you who read also leave comments here and I read them all, clicking back to your blogs and exploring the links you may have left in your comment. When you step out from behind the big internet to say hello through a comment it matters. Truly. That is why I am dedicating this post to one very special reader today and her name is Melissa. Her comments mean a lot to me but especially on days when I felt a bit tired or asleep at the wheel, she always seemed to speak up at the precise moment when I needed a good cheering on and I bet she didn’t even realize it… Until now.
I hope she doesn’t freak out when she reads this, and turn all bright red, but I really adore Melissa. Do you know who she is? Honestly, I am not too familiar with her on a personal level though I love reading her guests posts on Creature Comforts which have launched into a special new blog called Melissa Loves. It’s such a fantastic little spot to visit with a cup of tea in the morning… I love that she consistently shows up a few times each week to give us a slice of her inspirations. It’s a very special blog but what is even more interesting is that author Melissa is a genuine and kind person who takes a very personal interest in others.
In addition to her blog, she creates jewelry and owns the Etsy shop Acts of Kindness. Here is a glimpse of some of the lovely things she sells there. Absolute beauties!
So Melissa, I want to thank you so much for your support and for always taking time to visit me here. It makes the internet, and the world in general, a much happier place to have a sincere, warm and encouraging person in it such as you are. Congratulations to you on your new blog, Melissa Loves is a new favorite of mine.
P.S. If you author a blog and have a reader in mind who you’d like to give a virtual hug to, please take a moment to blog about them and post a link to it here below so we can see!!! I know this may be a little too warm and fuzzy for some, but if you are comfortable with giving someone a shout out please do it.
