Who would ever have thought that we'd have books published this year?! Holding mine in my hands was one of my happiest take-aways in 2011.

Thank you for including my poem here and for bringing such a wealth of good writing to everyone's attention. You should be in your own lists more often.

Wishing you all the joys of the season and much continuing writing success. Happy New Year, Glynn!

I was thinking about your Saturday reads and Maureen's sharings this morning and it struck me that both of you have brought amazing wonder and joy to my world through your sharing -- and I am grateful.

Thank you for filling 2011 with so many treasures. I take away gratitude as 2011 slides into a New Year.

Happy New Year Glynn to you and your family.

Laura said...

Happy New Year, Glynn, and may 2012 hold much sweetness for you and your family. And thanks for including me here. All these friendships I've made from The High Calling continue to bless me more each year. Grateful for yours.

Mom always told me never to talk to strangers... thank God I disobeyed. I have never met a better group of strangers than here and through THC (not that you are strange, of course ;)

Thank you for including me today. Without even knowing it, you have helped me navigate through my first year of blogging. I am grateful for your trustworthy guidance and encouragement.

God's continued blessings to you and your family in this new year.

If I should ever be so blessed as to be included on any list that you compile, I think my life might just be complete. For you are a most gifted list-maker, indeed, and this is a wonderful one, Glynn. Thanks for it.
