Wow.. the list is a long one!I'm thankful for my family and grandparents. I'm thankful for friends and good teachers and mentors. I appreciate Jland friends, helpers and our Jland teacher. I appreciate those people who have reached out to help people here.

When I mentioned that someone needed help, Joe and Jouell did step up to the plate.Paul Little helped many of us here; weaving a rich tapestry of journals so that we could learn about other Jlanders and mutually support one another. I miss him here so much.John inspires us to learn more about journaling.

GaBoatman (Sam)(( is such a friend to all; he visits many bloggers and encourages us by mentioning all of the good things that we have done to reach out to others in our blogs. Likewise, Ondine Monet has been known to champion new bloggers; encouraging them along and asking them to continue writing!I miss Ondine alot. I have seen her new space and it is beautiful.

Nicole (Sugar1337) is a wonderful friend here. She is a talented writer who always makes time to write of her enthusiasm in her blog;"Disobeying he Rules of Convention, I may be.." Nicole would like some new readers. She is a very imaginative writer so please email me if you are interested so I can tell her.

Unfortunately not everyone on that list is who they say there are. It's a sad time in J-Land. Not all have been honest!!
