I second that.....having you, luise, and all these WW is the most wonderful thing.  It really does feel like a family even though we have never met. 

Well said, nikncon.

N - Thanks you so much!  :)  Whenever I read something like that I know this Web-forum is working. When we first started, someone said I reminded her of her grandmother and I was deeply touched. It's been almost three years, now, and I think we have become an exceptional cyber-family. We all hive sisters here and adopted DILs and MILS...and those close to my age...well, no one is that close…have a have a passel of kids! :-) It's wonderful! Sending love...

Yes! Sometimes when I talk to someone about WWU, they will ask where the members come from and what they do. It's hard to tell anyone that I don't know…it never came up…or I don't recall. I know the person's heart…and that's enough.

 ;)Since I have no family except  for my AS and my DH I feel that I now am part of a big family with whom I can share my times of sadness as well as my times of joy.Thanks Luise  and all WW.

It's probably a good thing we are all not living closer together, or next we would be borrowing clothes  ;D

Well, I'd be willing to lend my "tents" to anyone, if they promised not to return them!  ;D ;D ;D

It is true, I feel nurtured by you luise and WWU friends.  Just need that to make my heart thrive.  Good thing we can reach out across the distance and not feel so alone.  Thank you,  :-*

Yes, I agree with the ladies here, you do make a difference in people's lives.  I can't talk to my Mother about alot of things because of her health and I always try to imagine what would my GM would say to me.  She was my best friend.  I never thought I would find a place where I can let it all hang out so to speak and really see how everyone else is dealing with the same issues as I am each and every day of their lives too.  Thank you again.

Thank you and there are many times I have been nurtured and carried through some tough spots by all of you! That's what WWU is for and I am so grateful that it's working. Kirk and I designed it but it would just be an empty cyber-space without the contributions everyone makes here. Sending love...
