OK... here it is. It's my almost obligatory post on both announcing and congratulating myself that with my last post entitled On Becoming Ourselves... Psychology Meets the Laws of Physics I admit to being "Over The Hill." I have achieved that magical prize, that feat among feats... of reaching 100,000 Active Rain Points. This fact... and about $4.95... will get me a really fancy cup of coffee at Starbucks.
So... who do I thank ? I want to thank my mother... for without her I would not be here. And I want to thank my Dad... for without him I would not be here either Happy Birthday To My Dad ! !
I want to thank my Cat Mollie, Mollie The Guard Cat, who keeps me safe at night by chasing away the goblins. and who keeps me warm at night, by snuggling with me.
I also want to thank, and to send the warmest wishes possible to a woman I met in 1978... during an extremely tragic period in her life... her name was also "Karen Anne". When I First Met Karen Anne... A Tale of Domestic Abuse . It is because of this tragic young woman that I began always including my middle name of "Anne," instead of being know as "Karen" up until that time.
I'd also like to thank my friends up in Plano, Texas... Have You Heard About "Checkpoint Acrylic ?" whom I occasionally tease with some of the silly things I write about.
My daughter Robin was a big part of my journaling (which is really what much of blogging is for me) when I wrote Please keep my daughter Robin in your thoughts and prayers tonight... during the month of November, 2007. Many of you so kindly and graciously shared our sadness with us through Robin losing her longtime pet "Lady."
And then, of course, there is my being thankful for all that I have learned from both my friends, and from those I have yet to meet My First Thought Was... Why Am I Getting All This Hate Mail as I continued to learn the in's and out's of blogging, and how to do all those fancy computer tricks. (I still have much to learn.)
I am very thankful for all the wonderful friends I have met here during my Seven Months on Active Rain. Thank you all so very much. MWA !
