Well, 2012 is almost history.
As the year comes to a close, I wonder if 2013 will be just another year... or one filled with adventure, discovery, hope?
For all of you, I'm wishing the latter.
I received a lovely email from a Long Island reader, Jean. With her permission, I'm posting it here. messages like this remind me why I love what I do, and what a privilege it is to be syndicated in nearly 300 newspapers. Thanks to all my amazing readers for making 2012 a great year for Stone Soup, and for the honor of the opportunity to bring some warmth and humor to your day.
From Jean in Long Island—
"As 2012 draws to a close, I wanted to thank you for another great year of Stone Soup. This was a tough year for many of my fellow Long Islanders who suffered through Hurricane Sandy. And, then there were the tragic events across the Sound in CT. The only bright spot in the newspaper was the comics. Stone Soup is my special treat every morning, and I thank you for that. Wishing you all the best in 2013."
