Dear Sparkfriends,

Yesterday I was feeling blue...winter, the howling wind and my SAD had all piled up on me and I wrote a blog to whine....pout....just get it out of my system.

As always, it felt better to put it out there.

A lot of you responded almost immediately. You encouraged me. You joined me in feeling tired of winter. You reminded me it can always be worse. Some of you pointed out ways to fight the feelings. Some of you just gave me a cyber hug.

None of you gave me permission to sink into a pity party! LOL

This morning, I awakened with resolve to approach March with vigor. Spring would soon be here and I had my plan for the month, I would be strong!

One thing though, I felt as though I needed to step away from the keyboard and take a little breather from so much of my cyber life.

Then I checked my e-mail. Overnight, many more of you checked in to encourage me. I started to try to respond to each and every one of you since I really value your replies.
While doing that my husband pointed out an email from our internet provider that appeared to indicate a billing error. While on the phone trying to straighten that all out I continued to get notifications of comments from the spark community.

Needless to say, I didn't minimize my keyboard time very much! LOL

At this point, I think I responded to most of you. If I have missed saying a personal thank you, I apologize. Please know that you all helped to reframe my mood and I appreciate that so much.

A while back I commented on the value of blogging to me and this particular instance is another reminder of that. When we need a friend, a kick in the butt, a ray of hope.............there is always someone (or more accurately...a lot of someones) out there! emoticon

    New month, springs around the corner. We can do this. I'm working on self improvement in other ways too.
Keep smiling, you'll probably have to kick my butt a few times too.
