    Aw, you included my tiny little post. Aren't you sweet. 🙂

    The others are some of my absolute favorites. And yes, they either made me laugh, cry or sigh. And all of them make me happy to be a part of this amazing internet place, which really is one-of-a-kind.

    Thanks for all YOU do, Dan, to promote a sense of camaraderie among us.

    OH DANG!!! I can't believe that II missed “Driving Lessons”!!! Well then, here's an official addition to the list, because that really was a great post too…

    Thanks for dropping by to share your thoughts on these posts! Just curious… What other posts would you have included? Feel free to share some links here if there is another one or two that you think are worthy…

  5. @bibledude

    I had to include something from you LL! You are such a driving force for what we do in the network, and I was happy to include one of your posts in this list! Besides… the message of that post is one that more people need to hear.

    Thank you!

  6. @bibledude

    Yours was 'nominated' by someone else on the team, but I definitely agree that it is worthy of being selected as a 'must-read'! You rock dude!

  7. @bibledude

    Thanks Dena! I know that we haven't interacted a whole lot on the network yet, so I appreciate the tweet and the comment. I definitely agree that HCB is something that we can all be proud to be a part of!

    Dan! Where is my “Driving Lessons” post? It was, after all, the spark that ignited the freeway competition between you and Sam…

    Kidding. Kidding. These are all wonderful posts. I was too late to give my faves, but you've included several of my top choices here. Thanks for highlighting these amazing folks and great pieces.

    I really liked the posts by Gordon about dealing with depression, as well as the posts about Shelby. They were so real and moving. I liked this one a lot:


    I also enjoyed Ed Cyzewski's Lenten posts. Here's one:


    And I still remember this photoplay by claire…was it the first one? I can't remember, but Susan's photo was perfect:


    And of course I agree with Ann: anything Billy writes is wonderful. And I love all the RAP posts too.

    Okay, I'll just say it: It's all good!!

    Ditto, what LL said. You are piece of work, Dan. We really appreciate you. Thanks for the zombie link. And I have to agree with Laura Boggess, too. When you asked for suggestions, I was overwhelmed by the number of posts that have really touched me over the past 2 years since we first turned on the site Feb. 1, 2008.

    Seems like we should have had a birthday or something this February. We'll have to remember that for 2011.
