Merry Christmas

A Time For Thanks...


                                                                                  Calvin And Hobbs - Bill Watterson


I am using this space today to extend my very heart-felt thanks to all who have made the imaginary garden with real toads the creative success it has become.  I am thrilled daily by the unqualified support and generous interaction of all who visit the site and participate here on a regular basis.


To the Members, a special word of appreciation for your continued contribution to this project.  I knew that if I could harness the creative input of the amazing people I met through poetry blogs, a site like this would not only be possible - it would be a melting pot of the imagination.  We all thank you for your hard work behind the scenes, which makes every day a new adventure. 


I have not provided a Mr Linky for today, but would love to read your messages of friendship, thanks or seasons greetings in the comment box.


Compliments of the Season to All

I consider this site a gift. For a literary geek like me, it's so nice to have a place to share work and to get inspiration from others. So thanks, y'all, and a very bountifully blessed and blessedly bountiful Christmas!

I'm almost disappointed there isn't a challenge of some sort for Christmas Day. (I love the Calvin & Hobbes poem.)
Real Toads has made a real difference in my life this year, and I was delighted to be invited to be a member. When I am not well enough to go out, or to work around the house, and am pulling out my hair trying to write a new Unfittie chapter, I know I can happily bury myself in a New Toads challenge and feel I have accomplished something that day. Gone, now, are the days when I felt I could accomplish nothing.
