Appreciation Days - An IWSG Post

Appreciation Days

     At work we have Appreciation Days. It’s my company’s way of saying thank you to the many people who make a difference in our communities. We offer free (first-time) tax preparation for teachers, firefighters, hospital workers, military members, and many other well deserving, hard-working people. 

     It made me reflect upon how much I appreciate all of you. Each month, people share their experiences, their doubts, their strength, and their successes with each other. This blogging community comes together to lift each other up and offers words of wisdom to those who are struggling. It reminds people they aren’t alone on those days we feel like things just won’t fall into place for us.

     But, what really makes me appreciate everyone in this blogging community of ours is that the support doesn’t stop at writing. We help people who are dealing with health issues, family struggles, and the loss of a loved one. Everyone rallies together to offer their help in so many ways.

     How awesome is that? (Cue the Lego Movie song Everything is Awesome!)

      It also made me realize, yet again, just how lucky I am to have a kick ass mentor in Bryan. He’s been working with me for close to two years! Teaching me to write, edit, and fine-tune my work. And, he has the patience of a saint.

     We really are blessed to have each other and be in this great community we call home. Let’s give ourselves a round of applause and a big cyber hug!

     We Rock!

     This is an Insecure Writer Support Group post, come hang out with us!  It’s a time to talk about our fears and doubts, or inspire others by sharing our success and happiness.  We’ve got a great bunch of people in this group and we’d love to have you join in on the fun too.  A big thank you to it's creator, Alex J. Cavanaugh.

     Don’t forget to stop by and say hello to our fantastic co-hosts: Chemist Ken,Suzanne Sapseed, and Shannon Lawrence!
