What better way to start a week than by thanking those you admire and adore?
I want to be a friend filled with tribute and gratitude.
Not only tell others I appreciate them, but support them in all they do. Words are important, but so are actions.
I don’t know if this will turn into a Monday routine, but I’ll enjoy the process for the moment. I’ll write a bit about why I’m grateful for someone in my life, and give them a backlink in return.
It’s really the least I can do, for how much these individuals give to me always.
She cares about the success of others.
And why has she affected me in such a grand way? I meant the above.
I know Keri really has a passion in giving back to the social media world, whether it be through her active Facebook activity, or the wealth of information she so readily gives to others.
Even the name alone, for me, has become a motivating word.
Last year, when I first “rebooted” Smart Boy Designs after returning from a mission trip, Adrienne was one of the first to jump onto the bandwagon of support.
I don’t go through a single week without stopping by Adrienne’s blog. Why?
I need what she writes. It motivates me. It inspires. It keeps me going.
She’s a human with love enough to fill even the largest of rooms.
Annie simply makes me smile.
And at a deeper level (does one need a deeper level than smiling?), she inspires me through the adventurous way she lives her life.
She takes them on daring adventures.
She writes about the process for others to benefit from, and beyond.
Whatever success I find in my life, she’s one of the first to congratulate and acknowledge. I really appreciate her for that, as it tends to push me further and work for more.
Thank you Annie.
The journey in getting to know her, since, has been nothing but a pleasure.
What has since developed has been a kindred friendship well beyond only a few months old.
Mandy always takes time to thank me for writing blog posts, Tweets me often, and keeps my world online lively and fun. I’m always refreshed and energized when I’m able to spend a few moments chatting with this kindred spirit.
Mandy understands the social aspect of the web, and you’d benefit from getting to know her.
