I periodically like to thank everyone who comes by the blog. Thank you for visiting. Thank you for your comments, feedback, emails, etc. It means a lot to me and I know I am edified by it. The blog has been getting a lot more traffic lately than usual and has actually set records the last two days with nearly 1000 views each day. I am not really sure why but I am grateful and humbled. I guess I feel the need to share that because I like this to be a place people feel a part of and I like for you to share in my joy that hopefully something good is coming out of all of these words, pictures, and links that somehow get grouped together into something called a blog.
