When Deidre asked if I would like to write something for the first anniversary of the MVBClub blog, I admit I was a bit stunned. I thought the honour would go to someone else, someone much more worthy. Nevertheless, I said yes, right away. Not having a clue what I would write.
On top of my head, an anniversary, let alone a first anniversary, should be celebrated by telling others how one loves and appreciates the other. So, here it goes…
A year ago, Man VS Books Club was established. We weren’t made of big things, but of one simple thing – the love of the written word. We also have the heart to encourage men to read and write more and to spread out that “reading is sexy” – because men who read are–indeed–attractive! Well, personally, I think nerdy/geeky guys have always been attractive and interesting…in their own, unique ways.
As we carry on, our friendship grows each and every day. I have to say, I felt comfortable with all of them right away, since the very first time we chat, which is so rare of me. Each has their own “magic”; each never failed to put a smile on my face even when I didn’t feel like it. There are two things that can’t make me smile though…our distances and different time zones. But those things never keep us from being close to one another, thanks to the internet.
The ladies – Deidre, Susan, Annie, Antonia and Jane – are amazing. Seeing them online automatically makes me happy; it’s like seeing pots of gold at the end of a rainbow. They are so caring and supportive, beautiful on the inside as well as outside. I like to think of them as sunshines – just think how bright your day is with all of them in your life!
The men – Rob and Brad – are, well, gentlemen. Once you are close to them, you will definitely know that chivalry is not dead. They’re handsome as well as kind-hearted. But—there is a “but”—on the other hand, they can be really mischievous like little boys and make you laugh so loud, people will stare at you! (–> based on personal experiences)
It is quite rare to meet someone, let alone some people, who have the exact same interest as you do. I’ve never been a believer of coincidence, which is why I am positive God made ways so our paths would cross each other. Though we come from different cultures, backgrounds and beliefs, yet “BLESSED” is the first thing that comes to mind each time I think of having them in my life.
So, cheers to MVBClub and its crew! May our friendship and our love of books never cease! And, of course, three cheers to all the lovely folks who have been with us from day one – your support is priceless, it strengthen us more. In short: it makes us so happy! On behalf of the MVBClub, I’d like to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH from the bottom of our hearts.
