I’m feeling so overwhelmed with gratitude right now that I’m not even sure where to begin.Before I do begin, let me say that I have the BEST fans, friends, and admirers.

I asked that you open up and review sessions and you did! I am so pleased to see the influx on my store and Inraptured.net. I know not everyone feels comfortable posting publicly and I want you to know that I really loved the private testimonials!

I asked you to join me on Inraptured and so many of you did. You have been such a welcome addition to the site. I also love having yet another venue to communicate with you and get to know you better.

I posted about a rescue dog needing surgery and you stepped up! The advocacy group told me that my boys practically paid for the surgery with their donations alone. I was awed seeing so many of you give without any promised reward.

I wanted new equipment. You stepped up! I’ve been learning to use it and hope to have new sessions recorded on it by July.

My doorstep and inbox has been full of surprises from my Amazon wishlist gifts and tributes. Do you know how truly amazing it feels to be thought of without provocation? I suppose the argument could be made that you are all helplessly hypnotized, but I suppose I like to think of it my way. When I open a box from Amazon, my first thought is not “Yay! I got that new book I wanted.” My first reaction is “I wonder why he felt compelled to gift me something so kind.” Of course, I love the gifts. I’m not going to pretend I don’t. My wishlist is limited to 25 items because these are what I want or need the most. The thought that you want to brighten my day with something I want so much is truly amazing.

Sometimes, when I give things away and don’t receive so much as a thank you, it can be pretty disappointing. I would like to think that the efforts of my favorite fellas makes up for that….karma I guess? I can think of 6 particular boys that are going to receive something special from me next week. Are you secretly hoping right now that you are one of them?

I’ve got to wrap this up, but before I do, I have a question. What is on your mind when you get the idea to send me a gift?
