Everyday in May: A Letter to Fallen Heroes and My Readers

Today's prompt is: "A letter to your readers." This post was for Memorial Day, so I felt a little weird only writing to my readers when it's a day to remember fallen heroes. So I decided to do both:

A letter to fallen heroes:

I just want to say thank you for all you have done for us. Sacrificing yourself to protect us and our way of life is so far beyond anything that can be thanked with a mere "thank you," yet that is all I have within the confines of this blog post.

Outside of blogging, we honor your sacrifice by listening to your story and allowing the tears to fall. We donate to causes to help your family, and those heroes who suffer with injuries. But it somehow still does not seem like enough. All of these things come after the hurt and loss has already taken place, and there is no way to take it away. All we can do is remember and say thank you, again.

A letter to my readers:

Thank you so much for visiting, reading, commenting and giving me awards. When I started this blog, I thought I may have maybe three readers at most, if any.

I just feel so lucky to have cyber-met so many awesome people through this experience. And it's not just the comments and awards that I appreciate. It's the fact that those of you who are both readers and bloggers (whom I believe constitute most or all of my readership), give me so many hours of entertainment through your own awesome blogs.

In many ways, I enjoy the content you have given me to read more than knowing you have read my blog. So thank you, above all, for letting me find you.

And if you are not a blogger, then thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read my blog. I so appreciate it.
