Gratitude List as 2011 Flies Toward the Sunset 29

The year was difficult at times, yet looking back I find I am grateful for lessons learned, for people met, for relationships established, for friendships maintained, for faith, questioned at times but never lost, and for you, my dear supporters. I could not have made it this far without you. This is my final post-a-week for 2011 and while I will continue to blog, I am not committing to a post-a-week in 2012.

I have gotten to know many wonderful people during the year, some through Twitter, Linked-In, my blogs, and even a few on Facebook. I hope you will click on their names to learn more about them.

Mahalo to: Michele Borba, Annie Fox, Sara Winter, Laura Nagle, Susan Marks, Leah KelleyElise Stokes, Stephanie Crist, Eric B. Thamasma, Grace Hodgin, Eri Nelson, The Redhead Riter, Lydia, Sharon and Phil Dzialo and their son, Adam, Danette M. Schott, Tiffani Lawton, Lori Lite, Lisa Quinones-Fontanez, Lorna d’Entremont, Bobbi Sheahan, AspieSideChi Yon, Lisa, Fi, Leigh Merryday, Alicia, A. K. Butler, Floortime Lite Mama, Mama Fog, Solodialogue, Spectummy Mummy, Elise Ronan, Mommy Lebron, Heather McCracken, Trish, Sharon da Vanport, and I could go on and on, but I am going to stop here. Others are some of those I tweet about, I post about, I mention on Facebook, or the authors of the blogs I list in Special Peeps. You see there are too many to link.

Please also look at my Helpful Info section. Helpful Info is located at the bottom of my blog if you are viewing the full version instead of the mobile view. There you will find others that I am grateful to have gotten to know including Tony Attwood, whom I actually met in 2010.

Wishing all of you Hauoli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year!)

With Aloha,



  1. Thank you Sue for adding me to your list. I am new to Twitter even so I am very impressed with all the community support I have found there. It is wonderful to see.
    Happy New Year to you and your family
    Heather McCracken

  2. An honor to be noted. Of course, your persistence and strength in the pursuit of both noble causes which you have undertaken embolden us in our causes. Many people taking the oppression of our children and adult/children does make the world a much better place…perhaps not in our lifetime but the effects are carried on and on. Blessings as we approach the new year, strength as we continue to do what is simply right, and courage that we never succumb to indifference.

  3. Mahalo, Sue! Such an impressive list! You are an inspiration and have a special place in my heart. Writing posts has an important role in providing us with unity, strength, education and humor in everyday life, doesn’t it? Thanks for being in mine! Happy New Year! xoxo

  4. Hello Sue,
    I am afraid I haven’t offered much support lately. I have been caught up in some of my own issues, and also (hopefully) offering a bit of support elsewhere. I hope and pray the new year will bring many blessings to you and your family, and progress in stopping bullying. All of humanity’s advances seem to have started small and then grown exponentially. You have gotten the snowball rolling. It will gain momentum and grow!

  5. Wow I don’t know what to say, except thank you. And the people that I know on this list are awesome and I am so honored to be listed with them. I owe you a ton of gratitude for all of your support. I understand how you feel though – there are just so many wonderful people in the “community”. Thank you for listing so many wonderful people because now I have some more wonderful people to go and meet.

    You are really an amazing person and the support and love you have given your daughter is really admirable. The work you have done is really admirable. Don’t EVER give up. Please always remember you are making a huge difference.
