Thank you, Neal, for the invite to the ActiveRain Silver Hall of Fame! This post put me at exactly 100,000 points, just as I departed for Thanksgiving weekend with my family.
A Thanksgiving tradition in my family was inspired by my Dad's two Thanksgivings as a POW in Stalagluft III during World War II. Before dinner, each person at the table names something for which they are grateful - just as the boys did in Stalagluft III.
In anticipation of this, I always begin thinking several days in advance of Thanksgiving about things I might mention when it's my turn. I find myself giving thanks all week, as a result, and not just at dinner on Thursday.
That's probably why I've been thinking a lot about ActiveRain, and how much it enriched my life during the past year.
Thank you to the creators of ActiveRain. I know you have spent many long hours, risked everything you have, and overcome many obstacles along the way to build your business. You can be very proud of what you've created because you made it possible for me and literally thousands of people to develop new friendships, generate new business, and learn answers to questions we didn't even know we had! In return for the value you bring to us, I sincerely hope ActiveRain is profitable for you. And...
Thank you to my ActiveRain friends. You know who you are. You enrich my life every day with your friendship and you teach me more about business than I ever learned from a real estate class or book. I will be thinking about you, this Thanksgiving, as I consider the blessings in my life.
Thank you for helping me achieve 100,000 points with this post. You have read my other posts, encouraged me with your comments, written brilliant posts of your own that inspired my comments, accepted my invitation to join ActiveRain, referred business to me and successfully served people I referred to you. What a gift! It's not really the magic number of "100,000 points" that I celebrate - it's the magic of what they represent. That's YOU. Thanks again!
FYI: I'm going out of town for several days and leaving my computer behind, so please understand if I don't acknowledge or reciprocate your comment 'til next week.
