Okay, what's up with you people? I get sick for a week and I have people sending me emails, visiting my spark page, dropping off gifts, and adding comments to all my "woe is me" updates.
My own parents didn't even phone to ask how I was feeling. I will give them a break, they are 86. Not that I expected it but none of my brothers checked in on me, not even my sister. On the other hand, my wife and daughters did take care of me during this ugly bout with the flu.
But it is you people who amaze me. We have never met, but we do share a common goal of a healthy active life. We have never chatted on the phone, had coffee, tea, or even a beer together but again you guys are there. We haven't gone out for a walk, a run, or bike ride together but still you check up on me to make sure I am doing mine. The ongoing sense of community, the caring, the concern, you all demonstrate time and time again, never ceases to impress.
I would like to say thanks to all of you for the support you have given me, not only this last week, but through all the time I have been on Spark people. I would love to name each of you but I am afraid I would miss someone. One of my resolutions is to live healthier and I will blog about that later. But another resolution is to spend time and acknowledge the important people in my life. I may not be able to spend "real" time with you all but please, with this blog, consider yourself acknowledged because "you do make a difference."
Happy New Year and tomorrow, now that this flu is retreating, I will be getting in my first fitness minutes of 2012.
