My Heartfelt Gratitude...!


There is no way that I could ever tell you all how very much I appreciate the kind words and the prayers sent my way on my mother's behalf!

One of the reasons that I enjoy blogging so much and enjoy reading the blogs of others, is because of the sense of community that is prevalent throughout. In hard times or times of illness in the family, all of the compassion and well wishes that are sent are so much a comfort.

Even though I have not met very many of you face to face, I feel as though I know you all. The reason that I use the term "My friend" a lot on my writing is simply because I truly feel that you are my friends! I cannot tell you how much that warms my heart!

This really is a special media that we all perticipate in. A chance to speak our minds, to interact with others, to enter into open discussions on so many subject, and to both learn from and teach others.

I wanted to play this video as it is one of my favorites, and puts into words many of the feelings that I can't. It is specially for all of you! Once again, from the bottom of my heart...I thank you all!



Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit on the patio for a bit, OK?

Uncle Jim, this news has just caught my attention and I am sorry to be "late to the party" so to speak. I pray that your mother is well my dear friend. After have gone through a few days with my daughter sick I can feel your pain. I am so sorry that I just noticed this and will say a special prayer for you both tonight. Please keep us updated on her condition.

No need for thanks, Uncle Hermit, as I told Bullseye on his blog, that is what family/friends are for. That is how I have come to think of you all as my family/friends. :)

We are here to lend our support and help when and where it is needed.

I will continue to keep you all in my prayers and thoughts.

Hugs~Felinae~

She's still in my thoughts, Mister Hermit, sir...and will continue so until reports of "all clear" are given.

It is a good Web, isn't it, that catches us before we can fall too far?

Keep your chin up, Jim! If you look around at the sense of community / family you and the others who participate in blogging, even just by visiting, have created, you really get an idea of what this country is all about.

HermitJim said...

Hey Catman...
You're right about that! A good slice of life is indicated here in the blogging world, and I'm proud to be a part of it.

So proud to have you drop by today, my friend!

Oh Jim! That is one of my absolute favorites of Josh Groban's Just beautiful. Thanks so much for posting it. I haven't been listening to music lately, and what a way to get back to it.

I am terribly sorry your mom has had to endure all this in the last few days. Am hoping and praying that she will come through perfectly well!

The best wishes for a speedy recovery!
