”The fuel I run on” + A Little Bit Friday

I want to start this glorious summer Friday with something important. Please take the time to read it.

Over the last weeks I have received a few emails from grateful user of my freebies. Although I am very happy for each comment left on my blog or on 4share, these personal emails touched me a little bit more. The senders had not only taken the time to write me but on top of that I got a view into their lives and how/why they used my products. One in particular meant a lot to me. It was from Tiger (Tiger Creations) who wrote me because she couldn’t leave a comment on the blog. Of course I replied to thank her and here is what she wrote me back:

“Good Morning/afternoon Trine,

I wanted to say that if it were not for people like yourself people like me could not create. I am disabled and on SSDI...I do not leave the house so this is all I can do to help me forget pain and also do something constructive vs taking pain pills all the time. My pennies just do not stretch far enough each month and I rely on the generosity and time/efforts people like you share...I really, really appreciate all the people out there that do this for people like myself...I wanted to write that but not knowing who might read it I didn't ...but that is the truth....So you are doing more than just sharing...you are helping a very lonesome gal be able to relax and control some of my pain by getting into PSP and AS and making something and seeing the results...Just wanted you to know that too. Thank you so much for writing. I often wonder if people actually read the remarks and you have proved that they do. You have a wonderful day and weekend to come...

Biggest of hugs, Tiger”

THIS is the fuel that I run on… A mail like that fills me with energy, motivation and the need to continue doing what I do!

I am not writing this message to “show off”. I am writing it to remind you all that SHARING MATTERS. This is exactly the reason why I started this blog in the first place. If you have plenty - share it with others. And that does not only go for scrapping material, it goes for everything in you life!

And also - if you are a blog owner, remember to read all the comments left for you and reply to the ones that deserve it - It matters too!
And finally: Big thanks to all of you who have taken the time to write me personal emails!

Thank you for your patience, you have now deserved A Little Bit Friday!

I will be back no later than Monday - hope you will join me.

Just found your blog thru Digital Scrapbook Freebies and then read the post from Tiger. I'm not as bad off as she is but I also sit here and scrap ... and forget that I can't do like I used to ... walk, clean, garden, even stand, etc. She expressed it truthfully and I'd like to add my thanks.
