I am totally laughing right now. I was thinking that my post for today wasn't very good. So I came over to look at it and see what I could do to make it better and it isn't even here. All the garbage I wrote yesterday isn't here! I think the universe is on your side dear readers! I might have gone ahead with that crappy post, Do you ever just hit "post" even when you aren't thrilled with your work? Certainly not regularly because how would that make us feel but maybe just once in a while?
Ack, I really find it amusing that I am having so much trouble with this virtue. As I shared with you on Monday, Community as a virtue has been with me a VERY long time.

Generally speaking I will do EVERYTHING possible to insure that I don't let YOU down. Left completely on my own it would have been easy to quit.
All of a sudden, following my participation in the One World One Heart blog event I got introduced to the bigger blog world and it occurred to me that more then just a few close friends might actually be interested in what I am doing. Now I sit here with more then 250 followers wondering how/if what I am doing could actually be considered a community. I am thrilled that so many of you find what I am doing interesting enough to return on a daily or weekly basis. According to my blog stats about 100 of you stop by very regularly but most of you never even say hello.
I know how it is when you walk into a new
