obrigada e um beijo

My horoscope in the Express yesterday read: "It's a good day to let your feelings for someone be known, even if it's someone who already knows how you feel. 'I love you' never gets old". How true. Working in HR, it's always the negative that seems to get reinforced. How rare it is that we stop and say thank you for the positive things. We just don't say thank you as much as we should... even if we make it a conscious effort, I still think so much of the positive goes unsaid throughout the course of the day. We take for granted that people know what they often may not know.

My manager summarized it perfectly yesterday as she recounted a story about a stressful weekend and interaction with her children. The gist of her story was that she was exhausted from the weekend and wished that at some point during the weekend, her children had just said "thank you, mommy" one time. She said it was unfortunate that you had to come to work just to get to hear a "thank you", albeit typically the obligatory polite kind.

I try to let my friends and family know how thankful I am for their support. I just thought I'd take the opportunity to extend the realm to anyone reading this post. I must admit, I was a bit anxious when I made the decision to move this blog off of being just a private one posted to MySpace to being one available to anyone with a computer worldwide. I guess some people get a rush out of taking chances... skydiving... other crazy stuff. I think this blog has been a bit like that for me. It really has been simultaneously liberating and slightly frightening at times to put down my thoughts here and send them off into cyberspace.

Thanks to my friends who you all see as characters of sort in my life here. Behind each name or set of initials you see in every post, there's someone who's very special to me. I'm glad that they understand I'm not aiming to air out dirty secrets here and have continued to be the people I love so dearly uncensored. And, of course, I've done and will continue to do the same in return ;-)

Thanks for all of you who've sent kind comments and thoughts about my writing and those who've passed on supportive comments along the way. I really do appreciate them, whether you're someone I've known for years or an anonymous poster I may never know. It's always nice to see and hear there's someone reading that which I've decided to post through.

Fret not... the road's not ending and, oh yes, I'm sure tomorrow there will be another story to tell. My Google calendar's out of control still for January through March... never a dull moment.

Anyhow, I just had to pause to say thanks for those of you who are along for the ride.
