1. The therapist who sent me down this path
3. That well over one thousand members have made and will continue to make GiST one of the happiest and warmest little social networks on the internet
4. That when I began this project, I felt fairly defeated, but that now, a year later, I have 1825 things from my daily lists to prove that I am not
5. That making this final point in my last public, daily GiST list is so difficult
This has been an incredible year in some ways, and I will write more about my year with Grace in Small Things soon. I just wanted to let everyone who participated in any way — be it as a daily/weekly/monthly/one-time participant, a commenter, or a well-wisher — know that you helped make my year and the years of everyone like you who became a part of GiST, and even those who have yet to join. Thank you.
Also, let me assure you that I will continue to be a presence at GiST making my occasional lists, sending out our Monday newsletters, and checking in on all of you. GiST will live long and prosper!
Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things.
