Happy New Year, Mr. President. This is for you.

Hi Guys,

I’ve been doing this – whatever it is that IĀ do šŸ˜‰ –Ā for two years now. Never ever,Ā IĀ wasĀ more proud, happy and moved by any post, Ā like the very long one you’re about to enter – And I didn’t even had to do anything but copy and paste.

Right under the cut you’llĀ find what is – despite itsĀ length – really just a sampleĀ fromĀ literally hundreds of comments that somehow were gathered on every corner of I’m Grateful post. Some comments were edited because they were too long, but overall IĀ left them exactly as they were posted, typos, caps lockĀ and what not.Ā The order is random, except for the choice of the last post.Ā Visual breaks provided by theĀ marvelous Pete SouzaĀ and the rest of the WH official photographers (mouse-over for Pete’sĀ description of every photo).Ā 

UsuallyĀ IĀ would not dream to hope that President Obama will even hear about this collection – let alone read some of these commentsĀ – but after all that happened with “I’m Grateful” in just one month – I may justĀ start believe in miracles. Make yourself a nice cup of coffee (or two), and just enjoy. We are not alone. And neither is theĀ president.

Happy New Year, everybody.
