Every day, hundreds of people come and visit this blog. Maybe you want to see what I have to say. Maybe you just come to look at the pictures. A handful leave comments, but most of you don't. Well, be silent no longer! This is YOUR day--the day we share the love with our silent readers--the third annual LOVE OUR LURKERS day!
It's a chance for bloggers like me to thank the overwhelming majority of people who visit us. This year, something like 135 blogs are participating. For a comprehensive list, check out Bonnie's blog, "My Bottom Smarts".
To participate, all you have to do is the one thing you usually don't--leave me a comment! You can say as much or as little as you like, but say something! You can make up a name, post anonymously, whatever you're comfortable with. This blog, as you may have noticed, is all about having fun--so for one day out of the year, please feel free to join in, even if it's just to say, "Hi", or tell me where your from.
Your presence here is deeply appreciated whether you leave a comment or not. But I'd certainly like to hear from you. Let me know what you're thinking, what other blogs you enjoy reading--how much you say is up to you. I look forward to reading what you all have to say--because like the subject line says--we love our lurkers!
The "And" part of this post--today, of course, has a deeper and more serious meaning. The eleventh day of the eleventh month is the day that America honors it's Veterans--to remember those who have served as well as those currently serving. Please say a prayer of thanks to those doing what, at times, certainly seems like a thankless job.
They leave their home and loved ones behind. They fight battles not of their own choosing. In some cases, they make the ultimate sacrifice. They do it to protect our freedoms, our liberties, and our way of life. And they do it proudly and without hesitation.
These are the modern-day heroes. They deserve our respect and our thanks. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers--today and every day.
