Thank you for the comment, and thank you for the gorgeous bouquet you shared with us on Twitter today.

I'm glad this posting spoke to you. Family is my center, friends are special bonuses.

To think that even a year ago I had no idea that many of the people I now communicate with daily even existed. What a strange and marvelous time we live in!
