Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who wrote in and told me they were still getting blog notifications. Yes, thankfully the notifications sent via are still working. The issue is with MailChimp, affecting over 200 people who signed up to be notified via the form in the sidebar. MailChimp is working on the problem and they asked me to publish another post to aid them in their troubleshooting. That’s all this is, another test post–but it gives me a chance to say thank you for your encouragement and for sticking with me.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

Looks like things are working now. This techie stuff can be very frustrating.

Hi, Kathy,
I got this Thank post, but hadn’t gotten the previous 3. Since this was sent by mailchimp, maybe they’ve solved the problem. Now I’ll go back and read the posts I missed.
