The other day I realized that I've nearly reached 1,000 posts on this blog. Once that realization sunk in I also decided that #1,000 will be the end of this blog. So, here's to my next 54 posts; it's been fun, rewarding, and obviously gratifying. I'm grateful for the past posts, since they are a part of my life. And, I'm certain these last future posts I will be grateful for as well.
