Oasis
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:35:31 AM »
Hello everyone ! Long time no see !
I have been thinking about my friends across the pond , with the terrible weather , and also the election .
I hope your person of choice was elected !
I am tuning in today to say a big thankyou to you all , and to reassure any newbies reading this Forum
how welcome you will be made . These ladies do not judge , they listen , and when all around you is falling
down ,this site is a welcome port in the storm .
they saved my life , my sanity , and gave me the strength to carry on when I felt my heart had been
ripped out . Looking back , perhaps that is a bit over dramatic , but at the time I was rock bottom .
This tribute goes to Luise , my cyber Mom , and all her loyal mods and friends who help to make this
forum truly unique .
I thankyou from the bottom of my heart , which I still have thanks to you .
Not always with you in body but always in spirit .
As Luise says ....Sending Love ........<3

Hi LL!
I agree, this is a wonderful home away from home, populated by some very special people.  A treasure to recommend to others in need.

LL - I see your name and I picture scones! Yum! :) Wonderful to hear from you. I think of you often and I deeply appreciate your kudos. The quality of our site and the healing that happens here are about all of us. Our Moderators give it their best and our courageous members are willing to work through what has taken them down and then help others to their feet; an unbeatable combination. Sending love right back to you!

Oh, yes…and clotted cream fudge!  8) Remember when I sent for some from Scottland after a member complained about getting it for Christmas and LL told us how it was made?

Yes, because I got some as a gift and was grossing out.  Made myself try it and it was actually good, just couldn't get past the "how it's made" part....

Although I just realized I'm somewhat of a hypocrite.  I love potted meat and I know "how it's made".  Hmmmm....

Thank you, Pooh. I do my best!  8)

LL - I sent your post on to Kirk. He serves WWU so lovingly for free. I love to let him know that his work matters.  :)

Good to hear from you, LL! I've been wondering how things were going with you. Thanks for your good wishes.
