The same thing can mean different things to different people. Giving a poor person a car can change their life while giving the same vehicle to a rich man might merely make him yawn.
Your visits to my blog affect my life. In a huge way. Your presence and support give me courage to explore new territory, break social taboos and pursue my dreams. If it wasn't for your compassionate embrace of this blog, I wouldn't be half as happy as I am now. I smile now, frequently and deeply, knowing people care and accept me. That wasn't true a decade ago. Or for most of my life.
I don't know what the future holds but I know that my present is immeasurably improved by your friendship. Every person willing to listen to a rare bird like me is doing an act of kindness. And when you let me play in the sandbox with you, wearing and discussing pretty clothes, my heart bursts with joy.
Thank you. From the heart.
