If I had to name any of our contributors as the most deserving of a gift I’d name valady1. To most writers she’s known as the welcome wagon when you dare to hit publish for the first time, she’ll be there right at your side. Her carefully chosen words will offer you just the support you need to carry on and she has been giving to this community from its very early days. You’ll never hear an unkind word from this very sweet lady no matter how hard or demanding her day has been. In a word, she’s just lovely and we’re so glad to have her as part of this blog!
