Being new to Poetry Soup, I feel so welcomed and accepted.  I wish I could send a letter of thanks to each one of you.  Of course, time is a factor for us all.
Being a member of Poetry Soup and writing again is really helping me get through my illness.  I'm so glad I found this site and all of you.
Cannot promise to post everyday, but will when able.  Thank you again.
