What a nice surprise!

The last week or so has been very tough for me, with a lot of stress and upheaval in my personal life, for reasons I'd rather not go into right now. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I got home yesterday and saw a new thread (discussion) on TheLitForum.com titled "A Salute To Karen, Bumblebee Herder Extraordinaire" (!)

Diana Gabaldon refers to what I do on the forum (where I have been Section Leader, aka moderator, of the DG section since 2008) as "herding bumblebees", an expression that always makes me smile.

So I was reading through the replies to that post this morning, and I saw this:

Wow! Wasn't that sweet of her? I will treasure this comment. It means so much to me that she values and appreciates everything I do on the forum and for the OUTLANDER fan community.

Thank you, Diana!!

The LitForum would not exist as the wonderfully civil place it is without your dedicated supervision and guidance. Thank you a thousand times over!
