:-)  this is artpainter...i decided that leaving HW would be the worst thing i could do;you people are the best!! i promise to behave in an appropriate manner at all times & i thank those i offended for their forgiveness....you are so special ..each & every one of you, & i look forward to getting to talk w/my HW friends & to getting to know more of you!! bless your hearts, all of you...esp. you, kitt;you cannot know how much you have helped me just by being there & being so supportive. instead of pushing people away as i tend to do when in pain, i am going to draw closer to my friends & accept help rather than trying to go it alone(a bad , deeply ingrained reaction i have);i like to help others;now i need to earn to accept help from others. thank you all so much....i cherish HW & you folks;thank you for allowing me to stay , learn & grow;i will do my very best to give back more than i take. artpainter44

Dear artpainter,
We all have those good days and the not so good days and no one here is going to judge you so please know you are an important part of the HW family.  You have so much to offer to others and your way of using your artwork and writings to help you get your emotions out is an extremely positive force in your life.

Many people have touched my life in one way or another. You, dear artpainter , however, touched my life in a special way with your sharing...........bless you my friend.

:-)  hey, mmmnavy, thanks!! i am finally coming to understand how my pain can help someone else;understanding, compassion...it gives meaning to the whole thing really. i thought before that i understood that, but when it came to my needing help, i ran like the wind away from it;my perspective on it all has changed;if i can't accept help, i can't truly help;thanks so much!! painter

((((HUGS))))back, kitt;and thanks;i still face the same challenging circumstances, but you have helped me stop the self-destructive, downward spiral i was on by listening & caring at a time when i felt totally alone. you helped me see that isolating myself, alienating others & pushing them away , trying to force them to push me away(not so hard if you keep at it) was not the way to go. you didn't push(bless you);you were supportive without being intrusive;you were there when i got to the point of realizing i had to make a choice..literally between living or dying. it was that bad though i know it makes me sound like drama queen of the week!!it was that serious and i am getting counceling, which i would urge anyone else feeling that hopeless and desperate to do;it isn't a sign of weakness;it's common sense....i was raised to carry everythig alone;i can't..it's too heavy..for anyone. as i get older i realize it more & more, so i thank you kitt & all of you out there for helping;i won't turn it away anymore;i want to give it back;it can save your life, believe me. thanks again, painter; HW people are the very best.
