I want to tell all of you what this site meant to me in my life.  No matter what my day was, no matter what happened, good or bad, something I feared or something I was terrified about, confused about or happy about, I could come here and tell you.  Just you.  I knew I'd be understood and heard, my heart heard at last.

That's something I needed more than anything in this world.  I don't believe in all my life, I have been actually heard, really heard.  You did that for me.

I can't repay you....ever. This site was rare, so rare that there isn't another one like it anywhere.  You can search and search and never find another one. 

We were unique in that all were welcomed if they came with an open heart, trying like we were trying to just be heard and understood.

I would love to hear what this site has meant to you.  I know each story is different, maybe meant more to you or less....

I hope you read my post too, Chickie.  The one I wrote tonight, probably while you were writing this one... LOL! 

cocobars

Imagine that!  You were writing this post while I was writing one about how thankful I was for you! 

2chickiebaby

It is amazing....an unbreakable bond we have :)

cocobars

It really is, Chickie! 

You know what?  I think Luise needs to ping us all with her magic wand, so we can all remember getting over something hard and never forget this bond we all have here!

I hope she does.  She is all we are missing here right now!

Well, lets see...what does this site mean to me? Hummmm....

I means that I was able to make an e-friend (Chickie) on my other website and then design this site for her. It means that together we went out into cyberland and put out the call to women who wanted to care and share. It means that one-by-one you all appeared in our lives, mine and Chickie's, and an extended family came to be. 

It means that you have been patient with me, knowing that I didn't have a clue what I was doing...and that together we have created solidarity and loyalty. We have found strength in our differences.

It means that when one of us falls, the others come running and that aloneness is obsolete.

It means the world to me. And so I Ping away...there! Take that! Pings to one and all!!

And we're "PINGING" you back!  All of us...

You are our fairy godmother, in every sense!

I sure hate to hear that about ex-friend, Chickie

2chickiebaby

Well, Luise, you didn't have to buy a shopping cart and deal with ASPdotnetstorefront.  Be thankful, be very thankful.  For sure, they speak language that is foreign even to Hieroglyphics and more expensive than the Washington Monument!

(not really, I exaggerate 8)

Pen

I've said it before, but I'll repeat: This site has saved my life, many times. I love you all so much!

Thanks! And sometimes I trip over my long, Fairy-godmother dress.

you said "my ex-friend, Chickie".....what did that mean?

luise.volta

What? I would never say that. Never. I said e-friend...like e-mail and ether, Magical...
