A Message of Thanks

Monday, August 26, 2013

On August 23, 2013, I checked my email as I so often do periodically throughout the day. Call it a bad habit or what you will but you never know when you'll come across that one email that just makes your day. And that's what happened to me on that particular Friday. I received a message from one of my readers who has been following my blog for a few years now. Recently, she was the random winner of a pair of Skechers GOwalk shoes and, as some readers do, she took the time to let me know that she had received her prize. But her message didn't stop there. 

A Message of Thanks

Good day Diana, 
Just a quick note to let you know that I received my Skechers GOwalk shoes. I wanted to let you know that I gave them to my Mom, I did try them on and they were so comfortable and I knew that my Mom would love them so I passed them on to her. I'm a giver, I love giving things to family and friends just like you bloggers love having giveaways and making people happy to win things, it's the same for me. :) 
She tried them on and said wow these are real comfortable, I said that's why I gave them to you, she's always on her feet and I knew that this would be beneficial for her. She's always helping me out and I know that she would never purchase a pair of shoes at that price. I would but she would never, she's very thrifty with her money. 
On behalf of myself and Mom we want to thank you and also send a huge THANK YOU to Skechers!

In the spirit of gratitude, I, too, would like to extend my thanks to Skechers and to all of the wonderful sponsors that I have worked with for making things like this possible. But I would also like to send a most sincere thank you to all of you, my readers, who stop by my blog and who have shown your support over the last seven years. You have played a large roll in my motivation to continue on with my blog and I cannot thank you enough.

To Ginette and Mom, your touching message has reminded me why I love what I do. And Ginette, may your selflessness serve as a reminder to the rest of us that it is better to give than to receive. 

Thank you!

  2. That's such a sweet and thoughtful message. It's such a wonderful reminder how meaningful and touching telling someone 'thank you' can be. And that random act of kindness doesn't take much time at all.

  3. Such a sweet message. It is always nice to do something for others. I have passed a few of my wins on to friends/family that could use it more than I can. (Judy Cowan)
