  1. Linda, you are so sweet; thanks for the link love. The video made me tear up… sniff, sniff. I bought you a coffee! Enjoy.

  2. Linda,

    Thanks so much for the link. I like the words in photos that you have in the video. So true. Especially like the thought about having people emulate your actions. I feel that Barbara did that the other day with highlighting your blog. And I have to share that I just got my hospice volunteer application in the mail! I’m looking forward to it. Ellen

  3. Thank you so much for the link. That video is beautiful. I have to admit that when I get really cynical, I sometimes think that nothing will matter at the end – not even the things that the video says will matter. But generally, I do agree that what matters is the legacy that we leave after us – and not in the material sense.

    Elle, you’re brave. I don’t know if I could handle that.

  4. I found your blog through Barbara’s NBOTW. I was an instant subscriber.

    The video you shared is exactly what has been on my mind these last few days, and it is exactly right. In the end, it doesn’t matter how we got there, it only matters that we made a difference.

    What started as a simple personal journal to help me keep a grip on my sanity is rapidly turning into a tool to support the rights of the physically disabled and those suffering depression. I couldn’t be happier. If it makes a difference to even one person, even to let them know they are not alone, I will happily keep right on blogging until it is my turn to reach the end.

    Keep learning and sharing. You are making a difference.

  5. Thank you Linda. That is very kind of you. I like to think that what I say matters (would you mind emailing my daughter and telling her you think so?).

    Seriously, thank you.

  6. Linda: you deserve every single compliment that you were given! And the recommendation by Barbara was very much deserved! Your story is unique…your style is unique… So thank you for sharing a part of you with all of us! 😛

  7. Hi Linda,

    Get me a Kleenex. The video is beautiful. It’s a video I will come back and view again and again as the message is so important.

    Thank your for your very kind words. Although I showcased your blog, it’s YOU that makes it what it is. It’s YOU that is sharing what you’ve learned on a very important subject. YOU matter, too.

    Keep doing what you’re doing, keep sharing what you learn, and keep writing from the heart. You’re well on your way to success.

    I’m so happy our paths crossed.

    Thank you for the link love. It’s truly appreciated.

  8. Hi Linda thanx for the link love
    your blog is really great and your writing style is so simple and straight from heart which is so rare these days where every one is talking about every thing that can earn them some bucks 😳

  9. Hey Linda, thanks for the link. You’ve got a great site, with such an important message to share too.

    I watched the video as well….sniff sniff…

  10. @ Davina — Thanks for the coffee! What a treat! It will be a cafe mocha for sure. Maybe we can have a cuppa together in person some day!

    @ Ellen – I’m honored if my blog played even a teeny part in motivating you to volunteer. Yes, please keep me posted on your progress as you go through this experience! Best of luck with it.

    @ Vered — You very cynical? I find that hard to believe. Your blog doesn’t reflect that to me at all!! Now don’t ruin your image please, Vered! 😛 Yes, I think hospice work has to be one of the most difficult jobs ever!

    @ Genlisae — What a beautiful name, and welcome to the TLeC community! I will be over to visit your blog soon. I agree with you that even if we just help one person with our words one day, then it makes blogging all worthwhile!

    @ Writer Dad — You’re welcome. I know what you mean re your daughter, too. LOL

    @ Ribeezie — I’m blushing from your gushing. 😳 And thanks for it all! Hope you have a fabulous weekend away.

    @ Barbara Swafford — OK, enough of the thank you’s to each other. 🙂 The worst part about blogging is not getting to meet our new friends in person!! I’ve heard about the Blog World Expo in Vegas in September — maybe some BWAB’ers can meet up there? Just throwing the thought out — I don’t know if I can even attend.

    @ Sunil Pathak — Thank you very much!

    @ Evelyn Lim — Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you cry! Thanks.

  11. Linda, you are very sweet to include me in your list of blogs above. I don’t know that my subject is as important as yours! Barbara has created such a nice community on her blog; it’s wonderful to be a part of it and “meet” bloggers like you!

  12. @ Ann at One Bag Nation — Your subject is definitely important, especially since I’m married to a man who hates to throw anything out! I agree, BWAB rocks! 🙂

  13. Linda,

    Thanks so much for the link! Very nice of you to list all of us. I haven’t watched the video yet – I’m the biggest waterfall you’ll ever meet. 😉 But I will when I’ve got a quiet moment to myself. LOL, like that’s going to happen in *this* house.

    Anyway, it’s so nice of you to include me in your post. I appreciate the thoughtfulness.

    ~ Annie

  14. Thanks Linda, you are really a wonderful person, and have created a very meaningful blog.

    The video is really beautiful, and makes you really think about what really matters.

  15. Hi Linda – that was a great video, and thank you for the compliment 🙂

  16. Thank you for the link love. May your site continue to grow with the warmth and love you display here.

  17. @ Annie — Love the choice of words with “waterworks.” Hope you don’t cry too much!

    @ Lance — Thanks for the compliments. Glad you enjoyed the video.

    @ Al at 7P — You’re welcome!

    @ Linda — Thanks for the lovely wishes.
