Whispered Words (In Gratitude)--By Karen O'Leary--Your Editor

Dear Writing Friends,

Yesterday, we had 632-page views at Whispers.  For some sites, this is just an everyday occurrence but a day of gratitude for this North Dakota editor as I cherish each voice part of making these days happen.  I know that this is a time investment for many of you, encouraging and giving a voice to our community that I love.

Each thread in the fabric of Whispers is a gift.  Readers cherish your words—readers tell me about the quality of our journal.  That’s not something any one can accomplish alone but a community as a whole.

Whispered Words

gentle
gifted voices
of wisdom on life’s wings
rustle with enchanting treasures
so loved

It took me a bit to share the right words that speak of my appreciation for all of you.  Yet, these words can’t totally express my gratitude.

Best wishes and blessings,
Karen
