Comments: When You Find Your Heart in Your Throat

How wonderful!
I can understand - we do what we do because we want to and it needs to be done. But the occasional recognition, particularly if it is heartfelt and unexpected, just means so much.

Well, you made me cry. Which is about par for this place... I'm either laughing or crying. ;)

Heartfelt thanks and simple thoughtfulness are so powerful... it's the little things. If they'd given you a check for any amount I doubt it would mean as much.

Hey, you're appreciated! Deal with it! LOL! :-D

You are one unique and amazing person.
Perhaps that mom will follow in your huge footsteps.
THAT would be a very cool thing, too.
Good people inspire. You do that.

You may not "look" to get recognized for your free work, but it sure is nice when it happens, eh? Makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, doesn't it? I don't expect it where I volunteer, but I gotta admit I really like it when it happens, especially from strangers.

I can't do that kind of thing. I'm always in awe of people who can. If anyone deserves it you do. She recognized it immediately - that is one amazing woman - in her own way she's like you.

Bou - You are one of the nicest people I know. I always look forward to Eric's so I can spend a weekend around you (and Mo and Sissy). I'll prolly be out of town this summer when you come up just like I was last year. I've met a lot of really great people from this internet thingy. I'm so glad that Al Gore invented it.
