Anti-snark of the week

What's an "anti-snark," you may ask? Quite simply it's the opposite of a snark.

I received the nicest email imaginable from a reader. I have so many wonderful and thoughtful readers who take the time to send me nice notes - and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart - but this one touched me deeply. I received permission from the writer to post it here.

Dear Ms. Lewis,

Thank you so much for your blog and for your column on WND. I am a 24 year old graduate student, currently pursuing my Master's in music (vocal performance). My husband is a 28 year old captain in the Air Force, and he is currently earning his Master's in electrical engineering. I listen to Glenn Beck and Rush, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham, but yours is the voice that truly speaks to me. You don't play politics; you don't get stuck in the "he said-she said" games. You do your research and speak your mind--something that is becoming increasingly rare in our world of political correctness. Thank you for the Godly example you set as a wife, mother, and writer. Thank you for unapologetically telling the truth and shedding light on the "Church of Global Warming." Thank you for being willing to live a simple and quiet life when so many are scratching and clawing for the limelight. Thank you for being a good researcher--I can always refer my liberal friends to your columns, knowing that you will have done your homework and that your thoughts will be well-articulated. You are consistent and inspirational, and I am truly thankful.

I pray that 2010 will bring countless blessings to you and to your family. Thank you again for everything you've done for people like me.

- C.C.R.
