It's A Big, Big, Small, Small World After All!

It’s Saturday morning and I am feeling particularly grateful today.

When I started this blog I had no idea what I was doing or if anyone would even read it, but my daughter Angela was insistent about it, so here I am!

She’s pretty smart, that lovely daughter of mine! 

Back in the fall I was so excited when I figured out that I could actually see how many people were viewing my posts and which countries my viewers represented.

At the end of each day I would take a look and see that a dozen or more people were actually reading what I posted.  This was incredibly exciting to me . . . and it still is!

It’s a Big, Big, Small, Small World After All!

It seemed that each week there were a few more page views and I cannot tell you how happy I was when the number of page views grew to 40, then 50, and then 60 per day!  It began to feel like I was contributing something meaningful to the lives of a few people in the world.

And then something rather magical happened!  The page views kind of exploded all at once!  I went from 70 page views a day to several hundred a day over the course of a week . . .

While this growth is a bit of a mystery to me, I wanted to stop and take a moment to thank you and acknowledge how meaningful your presence is to me . . .

I am honored that you take the time to visit me so often . . . thank you!

And because this is a rather small world in so many ways, I thought you might be interested in where your fellow blog readers live . . . and to tell the truth I can barely believe it myself!

It started with the US, Canada and the UK, but soon there were regular visitors from the Ukraine, Ireland, Poland, Germany, Russia and China.  And as if by magic, you the viewers started streaming in daily from far away and wonderful places like . . .

. . . Venezuela, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Switzerland, India, South Africa, Iran, Malaysia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Norway, Lithuania, Sweden, Philippines, Bosnia, Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, Israel, Macau, Taiwan, Portugal, Norway, Cyprus, Indonesia, Taiwan, Argentina, Bolivia, Pakistan, and the newest viewers are from Ecuador and Namibia!  

And to my surprise and delight, new countries and more views are added daily!

Thank you again . . . I can not express the level of my gratitude or just how very honored I am to have you as fellow travelers on this journey to better health!  If I could, I would travel around the world to meet you in person and say thanks for brightening my world every day!
