So I can get a little sentimental at this time of year – long dark nights & mulled wine might do that to a person.
At the risk of getting a bit Oscar Ceremony, I want to pause and take a moment. In August, I wrote the Kindness List post and I want to do something similar now – A thank you list….
So to family, friends, clients, colleagues, peers, classmates, tutors, teachers, collaborators, contributors, commentators….
The Thank-You List 2012
I am thankful for the people who have made me stop, think, reconsider.For those who make me realise how clumsy and careless I can sometimes be. For those who see the opposite. For those who have taken the time to walk with me, talk with me, hear me, see me. For those who have allowed me to do the same back. For those who recommend me on or come back to work with me. For those who don’t understand what fuchsia blue is about. For those who have made me belly laugh with my head thrown back. For those who have made me cry. For the people who have put up with that scary frowny thing I do when I’m REALLY concentrating. For those who have had no time for me at all. For the folk who took time to read and comment on this blog. For the people who refuse to read the blog because they’d rather not go virtual.
For the people I love and who allow me to love them…..
And if you are reading this, I’ll take the opportunity to wish you & yours all the very best over the holidays & into 2013… and if you’re not, I’ll catch you somehow.
ps: I won’t just be doing the thanking via the blog – there will be more specific thanks offered via phone calls and emails and meet-ups and letters….Few Christmas cards, though this year, it’s a donation to Alzheimers Scotland.
