...I have just been informed that I am the recipient of the prestigious 2008 "best blog tyler ever read" award!
Of course, this award really goes to all of you. Posting things to this blog has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life, quite frankly, and I couldn't have done it without you. Really. You and God. Mainly God, though, since He's the one who created the Internet and the wireless mouse. But you all too. You guys are simply awesome. SO supportive. SO affectionate. SO...well, kind of demanding, actually, some of you. On occasion.
You know who you are.
