Dear Luise...
« on: April 15, 2011, 01:26:23 PM »
You've done nothing but support those of us who've needed supporting.  I hope you don't shut the site down, now that I've just gotten back up on my feet.  It's not about who's right or wrong; it's about wanting to improve ourselves so that our families come out the winners.  Can we all agree that Luise deserves better?

I agree. I for one, do not want to see this site close down OR become a pit of vipers.  :-\ Luise deserves better. You all have done wonders for me. You have no idea how much the MIL perspective has changed me. (yes, my MIL still annoys me lol, but I'm not "cranky" all the time with her like I was). I would hate to see it go.  :'(

I don't know how I would survive without you ladies to cheer me up.  ;D

I agree with Anonymous and Rose.  Luise  you did not failed...probably we failed you.  I have learned a lot from all of you ladies....mils and dils as well.  Shutting this site really hurts me.  Please Luise, could we all find a solution?

Thank you. Shutting WWU down, if it can be done, will not be a permanent thing. It will give me time to review on a deeper level what went wrong and who is behind what went wrong. I can't do that when the posts and peresonal messages keep flying and people I value highly are leaving in what feels to me like droves.

It's housecleaning time. I have no training in this and just have to give it my best. Sending love...

Luise, this site has been a godsend to many people, myself included, who have nowhere else to turn to pour out their feelings.  You have done a wonderful job, and I thank you so much for what you have done.   Honestly, when I have a problem with my dds, I immediately come to WWU, and then I will get the comfort and reassurance and caring that I need.   Please do not shut the site down......Jill

Luise,

Since I am the one that brought this all to a head, I am going to say that I think shutting WWU down isn't necessary. My steping back allows the site to continue to run for women who come here for solace and help. We just need to weather the storm. In two years, I don't think it's anything that hasn't been done before. Look at all the time you've invest and the lives you've touched. That isn't all for naught. Much more good has come out of this site than anything else.

We are always encouraged to take a step back when we need it. At one time or another, all of us need to do that, and we all have different reasons. Personally, I'm stepping back so this site can run at its optimum.

I took this to mean you are one of those valued people, Holli.   You'd better be careful though, else Pooh will be typing !!!!! behind your name next...  : )   We need you here, Holli, you help keep us grounded~
