The rain poured down this morning, but it soon gave way to the smiling sun. It often does. If we are lucky, we see a rainbow after a downpour. And we smile, seeing heaven’s reward. It’s amazing that a simple experience like this can make us feel better, lighter.
Three years ago, I didn’t know too many people in this virtual world. Now I have made incredible and trustworthy blog friends.
Three years ago, CSS and html were all Greek to me. I dreaded them. Now I think I’m brave enough to do some tweaks.
Three years ago, I was so trusting in the blogging world. Now I have learned to exercise some caution.
Three years ago, Pens of Hope was just a dream. Now it’s making many children smile.
My blogging life in the past three years has been that way: simple yet rewarding, simple yet full of magic. And it’s because of all of you. You are all a constant surprise and your comments are a constant delight.
It becomes all the more meaningful for me to say “Thank you” because recently this space fell silent many times, either I found myself at a loss for words in writing or work got in the way. But still there were some souls tiptoeing here, cutting through the silence—leaving comments or just saying “hi.” I feel there’s this invisible thread that strings us together. So I thank you, all of you, for your love and friendship.
Here’s looking forward to another year of more chances of online interaction with you, to more opportunities of learning from you. Because with you I am all the more inspired to love, to be happy, to share, and to see the beauty of every day by embracing its simplicity.
