Saying Thank You

mitzvahs

Mitzvah for the Day:

Emailed a journalist, Margie Boule who wrote a story about my blog and mitzvah project. I told her that since the story ran in May 2009,  I doubt a week has gone by that someone doesn’t remember me and know my story. She wrote a great piece last week about a new acquaintance and fellow writer, David Michael Slater. I wrote to tell her I enjoyed the article and also to thank her again for writing my story.
