In a few hours, it will be June 7. My good friend Stuart Stirling will be a year older – and a few years wiser. I’m filled with gratitude for our connection. Or as the hubby says, “Your mother instinct strikes at any time! You think everyone younger than you is your kid!” Of course, my concern for Stu goes beyond the tragedy that hit Japan in March. I’m just thankful things are well for him, the lovely wife Keiko and adorable Chino. Happy birthday, Stuart!
Then there’s the nameless angel who got me into all these. No, I don’t mean that meanly, you! I just want to thank you again for believing in me, for starting me up as an online service provider, and for hating me enough to leave me on my own two feet. Just be well and healthy, nameless angel. You know I love you while I look for the other shoe to complete Louisiana.
To my Oh!SomeAngels who patiently learned and finally loved what they do. I appreciate your efforts. More than that, I am so touched by your patience, resilience and support. My ebook wouldn’t have been finished if you kept bugging me for help 🙂 Also, I’m so proud of you, guys! In a matter of six or seven months, you’re earning your keep, with very little to do with me. You make our clients happy, you make me happy.
But most of all, to the Oh!SomeAngels, you helped me gain that feeling of having done something good. Look at you, guys! You’ve become “silent masters” of what you do! It was just last week I discovered, you’re all working and I was just floating amongst waters of the writer’s dream, motherhood, hyperventilation and loving other peoples’ blogs! Still, you independently worked on your own. Often I felt left out. And recently, I discovered it’s me who’s out of work! Because I don’t call a ten-hour online work that. LOL! Guys, I love you all. Pasta Thursday?
While at it, I’d like to thank the people who kept my last three months fun. Or kept me from the opposite pole while I struggled with the ebook writing. For starters, my girl, Theresa of BigFishTopDogs.com who regularly provides thought-provoking insights. More than the break from my routines, her site is my coffee shop and mind spa. When I feel the need to re-energize and not be swayed by trivialities, there’s little bro Derek Potocki. What’s in his site are down-to-earth reminders of how I should go about this journey of life as a whole. Oh, the sibling thing is one-sided still. Derek hasn’t signified interest on an evil stepsister me. LOL! It’s fine, little bro.
Funny. When the past three months were the most tumultuous in my (ehem!) online career – ever! It was also the time I’ve come across people whose wisdom and love for life got to me! Well, the heavens have a play on that, no argument. But still, I’d like to express my thanks for kind King of Ties Jk Allen of the Hustler’s Notebook – man, you rock! Because of that, I give you the ebook for free. LOL!
And to the others who I follow – and then become recipients of my attempts at goofiness (Do I hear a sound of disagreement at the word attempts?) like Daniel Wood; Stuart of the UnlockTheDoor venue where my profoundness is normal -appreciate it, kid! To you, Christian who’s not just a smart boy but a really generous spirit, your act is something that made me believe…
Then there’s Sales Lion Marcus Sheridan who I think doesn’t know me yet. ‘Cuz if he did, he’d know I’m a meerkat in the kingdom he growls at regularly. LOL! But really, Lion… you’ve got loads of stuff in there that’s making my mind obese!
There’s more fun stuff I get from Bloggess. It provokes me every now and then to get something a 100% bad-ass. And for saner stuff that’s closely related to my needs, Erica Allison, everyone at Ms.CareerGirl.com and my good friends from the same merry pond at BlogFrog – thank you guys! Errr, girls…
Yeah, I know I missed a few out. It’s not because I forgot you or have relegated you somewhere you’d take offense. I have something else coming after this so don’t delete me from your friends list. LOL!
Before I end…. scroll down, several paragraphs more, eh? Weren’t you told… ? LOL! Big hugs, a million kisses and a universe of love to my dear husband and our wonderful boys. Thanks for making it much less a struggle for me. Yes, dear ones… if this goes good, we’re going on our dream adventure… all five of us. No, Josef… Bauer and your toys stay at home! Dogs and toys aren’t easy to handle on long trips, honey. And yeah, no TV, too. Poor toddler.
OK, so what’s this about? After three months… the ebook is FINALLY done. It’s not something that would get me a Nobel but it’s definitely something I’m super proud about. The next step is to get it out. Hopefully, it won’t take another three months before that happens.
So again, THANKS to all of you.
Now I’m on to job hunting because I have nothing much to do. 🙂
Yes, the beggar’s button is here again.
Your help would finally get me somewhere… such as getting the ebook out.
All that processes! I didn’t know much, huh? I thought after I write it would just
appear with a dainty cover where my face is plastered all over. Alas, that ain’t so.
But I’ll get there. In the meantime, job hunting takes up like 43.97% of my time. LOL!
Thanks, guys. I don’t wanna end up having the Oh!SomeAngels dole-out some of their pay!
