A Tiny Token of Gratitude

I am not good at expressing myself. Maybe that’s the reason I write. I never developed the habit of sharing my thoughts. Maybe I didn’t have true friends or I was/am designed this way. I guess I’ll never know. So when my thought sharing door was completely closed, I embraced two ways,

One-Sobbing Alone-I know God hears these sobs and hell yeah it works-it’s magic!

Two-Writing-I’d be lying if I say it doesn’t soothe me! But I say this with honesty and a heavy heart that my writing only expresses a small percentage of myself. The other portion keeps on burying itself somewhere deep inside of me.

I’ve been writing since I was little. It always comforted my nerves. Had I known sharing my writing would pacify me even more, I would have shared it a long time ago but I never did that. I was too scared. I don’t know what happened last year when suddenly I started sharing on WordPress. I was too numb, miserable and hopeless at that time that I needed this change and honestly it was a huge change and a turning point in my life.

Since then, a part of me has always been happier though at first I started regretting it but I’m glad I accepted this change.

I’ve met the world’s loveliest people and friends here and I would like to thank all of my amazing followers in this post. Thank you wonderful people, you make me happy!

A few of these gorgeous souls are very close to my heart and I’d like to mention these lovely friends by name,

Ivor – (https://ivors20.wordpress.com/) You’ve been by my side since day one. I’d like to say everything by saying that I love you and I do pray for you. You’ve been through hell and I admire how you picked yourself up back again. You’re a wonderful soul. Stay happy always and keep expressing your love through poetry 🙂

Aquib – (https://aquibview.wordpress.com/) You’re a wonderful friend in this blogging world. You taught me the value of trust and you give me confidence that I lack most of the times. Stay blessed bhidu, my prayers are always with you. Parhai pr b focus krliya kro dada ji! 😀

Nico – (https://nicodemasplusthree.wordpress.com/) When I read you were gonna leave, it was difficult for me to compose myself. You make me feel peaceful, always. My prayers are always with you and your lovely wife. Stay happy and blessed! 🙂

Jo – (https://mouthtoo.wordpress.com/) You’re an amazing person and an excellent friend. Whenever I publish a post; I wait for your comment because you uplift me always. You are the ray of hope for your friends. Stay happy always. Loads of blessings and love to you! 🙂

Novus – (https://novuslectio.wordpress.com/) I wish I knew your real name but that doesn’t matter because you really are a sister to me. You’re loyal and you’re always there for your friends. I want you to know that I’ll be there for you too. Love and prayers for you dearest! ❤

Deb – (https://theveiledfacet.wordpress.com/) I love your art. You’re one hell of an artist and the loveliest sister and I love it when you call me didi. Stay happy and blessed little sister ❤

Roy – (https://dfloatingthoughts.com) You’ve been a very nice friend to me. You gave me the confidence to explore other aspects of my writing that I didn’t know before. Stay happy and blessed 🙂

Magarisa – (https://detoutetderien2015.wordpress.com/) Dear Mags, thank you for supporting me always. Love and blessings to you ❤

Chuck – (https://thereluctantpoetweb.wordpress.com/) You’re a savior! I keep on reading your words of wisdom again and again, thank you so much for your love, support and advice! Stay happy and blessed. 🙂

Dronstad – (https://dronstadblog.wordpress.com/) I salute you Commander! I didn’t know we’d become such good friends in just a tiny amount of time. Keep growing your veggies and stay happy my brother in quill! Love to your sister’s little ones 😀

 

I wanted to say a lot more than that but as I mentioned earlier, I suck at expressing myself so pardon me my dear friends. I know I am missing a lot of names here but all of you wonderful people mean a lot to me so kindly accept my deepest gratitude!

Peace and love

  18. Oh, Soiba!!! You are such a Sweetheart!!! Thank you so much for your very, very kind mention in this post!! I always love seeing your alerts in my email! I love your writing and your tender heart! I am so happy to learn that your writing is therapy and soothing your soul. It does the same for me too! It is easier to put thing down in words for me too rather in a face to face – besides just look at your stats and know that you would have never been able to meet and share and make friends with so many people from all over the world! I love the WP community!

    It is an honor for me to be one of your friends and to be here for you at anytime!
    Love and Hugs,
    Chuck
