A tribute to little green circles!
Oh little green circle with numbers entwined, how happy you make me feel! You feed my addiction here. It's been a few hours since I was last on, let me check again and see if you are there. You are so small, but you light up the page with good news that brings me a smile. Anticipation sneaks into me every time I visit. Has someone stopped by and left me a note? These small notes make all the writing worth while. Some comments are long and some comments are short. Some comments deliver a small part of my guests lives. Some are of praises, some are suggestions. Sometimes comments give me new resources, more knowledge, or suggestions. So every single time I see that small, green light shimmer excitement builds up in my core. I wonder who it will be this time and what wonderful words they have left. Will it be the dear friends that I have met through my time here or will it be a new name to explore? I visit the pages of new comers who left words just to get to know a bit about them. The tiny green circle at the far right brought a new potential cyber friend again!
There is a small colony that the green circle brings who comment on most of what I do. When I see them hiding behind the green circle, I can't help smiling from ear to ear. How lucky I feel. They are like faithful family. No matter if the topic of the hub was happy or sad, frustrated or mad, I always greet them with a huge smile. They are my cyber friends. They make me feel fortunate and blessed. I am grateful for them and all the little green circular gifts they have given me. Commenting is such a great gesture to me that I often read hubs that my favorite commenters grace with their comments. They are my friends after all, and what they like I may like.
In gratitude, I give each comment my undivided attention. I respond to them just like I would in any conversation.
Yes green circle, you take me back to the 80's when the thrill of the day was coming home to a flashing red light in the dark. At the push of a button a robotic voice would say, three new messages. What a thrill. People cared. People called. Telemarketing was not a gross epidemic yet. We still didn't hide from phones or screen our calls.
Thank you to all who have left me green circles!
