This is a blog post about You!
Writing about loving people enriched Aunt Ruth’s and my life beyond anything we imagined.
Our blog had hits from China, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ireland, Ukraine, Thailand, Israel, Canada, Russia, and Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, France, and the United Kingdom. Virtual love inspired, sustained, and delighted us.
You know who you are. You are the followers who comment, like us on Facebook, and most recently sent an actual mail surprise in Aunt Ruth’s favorite color, orange. As much as I wonder about the difference between “liking” and “loving,” I want you All to be certain that your virtual love has made a big difference to Aunt Ruth and to me.
Thank you for being touched by Aunt Ruth’s lessons and my photography. Thank you for each“share” on Facebook. Thanks to those who asked about attending an Aunt Ruth Seder! Thanks for trying Aunt Ruth’s recipes and for appreciating her ingredients for living well. Thanks for learning from Aunt Ruth’s lessons, enjoying her humor, and being inspired by her courage. Thanks for cooking Aunt Ruth’s recipes and letting us know that you did. Thanks for entering our first contest and making winning Aunt Ruth’s recipes a wonderful prize.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to listen to Aunt Ruth’s story.
"Honey, what I know for sure is that love is the most important thing in your life. It is the greatest gift.
During some of our dark days, YOU inspired US.
I never dreamed that I would open my mailbox and find postcards and presents. Thank you for being OUR greatest gift, virtually.
