I’ve been popping letters of gratitude in the mail and hand-delivering some all Fall. I can think of nothing more delicious than sitting by the fire in my cozy slippers writing notes that say thank you—it’s been ingrained in my soul since I was young.
But, there are also some people I feel deep gratitude toward whose snail mail addresses I don’t have. Because I don’t even know their names and we’ve never met, and I want to make sure that the year doesn’t come to a close without the chance for me to say thank you to them as well.
Chances are good you’re one of them.
You open the emails I send you.
You read them.
You pass them along to friends.
You like my posts on Facebook and share them when moved to do so.
You tag me on Instagram when you’re reading my book in an airplane or while sick in bed.
You tweet me your aha moments.
You send emails sharing how you’re doing with the stuff in the book or in the blogs or videos.
You stop me at Whole Foods to say hi.
You buy and then read my book and tell friends about it.
You show up for live events and give me hugs afterward.
You stand in line to have your book signed and to take pictures.
I want you to know that I don’t take any of it (or you) for granted.
I wish I could send you a handwritten note to express my gratitude. But in this case, digital will have to do.
I know we may not ever meet (though I hope we do), but I’m grateful for you. I think of you often. I love reading your emails, comments, Tweets, Facebook, and Instagram posts. I love knowing you’re there.
From the bottom of my heart and the deepest part of my soul, where we all truly know each other anyway, thank you.
