Reviewing the Situation

Today marks the two-week anniversary of Miracle on 32nd Street’s premiere on  It certainly has been a whirlwind trip so far, beginning with just a hunch and an epiphany…a hypothesis that maybe, just maybe, random acts of kindness could still foster and encourage a true Christmas spirit within myself and in the lives of those I come into contact with.

Two weeks ago, I made a promise to myself to attempt one “random act of Christmas” each day…an idea that turned into an acronym (RACs)…an acronym that that led to a blog…and a blog that has seemingly meant something, no matter how small, to my faithful readers throughout the past two weeks.  I’ve gone through the thrills of peaking at 94 views on Friday, having a fellow blogger mention me in her own authored post, and developing a rapport between the devoted commenters who have posted/viewed here almost every day.  I’ve also struggled through lows as well…wondering if my words reach anyone, if this will all be for naught, if my actions mean anything, and if I can keep this up despite the ordinary, day-to-day personal issues that consume our time and energy.

When in doubt, The Mom always used to say “Make a chart of pros and cons…write it out…and see for yourself.”  Tonight, I made a mental “T-Chart” of the supposed pros and cons I’ve fumbled through, and I’m glad to report that the cons don’t stand a chance amidst such a strong bevy of pros.

A Note of Thanks

I am so grateful to all of the wonderful bloggers and web-surfers out there who have viewed, commented or helped me with my site.  What an outpouring of ideas, encouragements, and general thumbs-up…my blog had its most hits today, and I know it reached its peak with help from certain individuals:

Nazia, who has offered such inspirational comments on many of my posts.  I almost feel like I’m hosting another blog:  her words are quite moving, and if you feel so inclined, take a look at some of the things she has had to say.

Jamie, from The New Hampshire Writers’ Network, who was kind enough to drop me a note with suggestions on my blog, even though I was a complete stranger to her at the time.  I will be incorporating many of her ideas into the site over the weekend.

Ferabeth, over at A Happy One: Hooks, Books & Saving the World.  Without ever making contact with me, she blogged about my blog…perhaps I’m still green at this art of online writing, but I got TONS of “warm fuzzies” (as she likes to call them) when I saw this.  You can read the post here, and check out her other postings, too.  I have a feeling we share similar views on enjoying the small things in life and finding our own “warm fuzzies” for the day!

Nghiand04, ragrobyn, dyosefina, miluko, Teri, ancaparema, Justin Toussant, and Heidi for being amongst my first commenters (and therefore, Support Team) and my first blogging friends.  A little note of a appreciation, from me to you…


Thank you for continuing to read!
