Imagine my surprise last week when my email box showed dozens, then hundreds of notices from WordPress announcing an uptick of activity on my last blog post on my scare with breast cancer. I’m grateful to Cheri Lucas at WordPress for featuring that post under Discover, “a daily selection of the best content published on WordPress…”

And, because I will not be able to get back to all of you, I want to thank you for the hundreds of visits, views, likes, and new followers, plus dozens of caring and encouraging comments from around the world (see the world map at the bottom of this post or on the right sidebar). Truly, my little corner of the Internet has been enriched and blessed by your notes and prayers and hugs of concern.

My minister this morning read from Luke 6:31 “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” All of you have done that simply by responding to a blog post, mine. I felt the empathy that I wrote about, and I am thankful! I’m sending warm hugs back to each of you from my seven-degree windy and snowy South Dakota; we are located right in the middle of the United States.

The tea kettle is on if you’d like to drop in. We can talk and laugh and pray, and cry if tears tumble forth from the stories we share.
