ok, here goes:

Kitt:  you are the voice of reason. i love your kind, thoughtful and sensitive advice. the way you deal with us, and with what life throws at you is nothing short of amazing. You have welcomed me from the start and been a source of support and wisdom. Your gentle hugs have made their way to Sydney and are truly special- kinda like you. yeah

Lyn: you inspire me. you are so honest about your trials and tribulations but you face them head on with a 'never say die' attitude and a healthy mix of humour. your words of comfort have been well timed and well said. you are a whole lotta special, lady- not only the fabulous way you attend to your HW family, but your love and concern for Cait is beautiful too. yeah

Meg: my fellow Aussie, you have provided me with both practical advice and help, as well as laughs. your support is invaluable. you have comforted me when i need and given practical advice as well. i love that i feel i can tell you anything and not be judged or ignored. thankyou for being you- you have genuinely helped me. yeah

All of these 3 ladies provide their own unique spin on support, caring, encouragement etc. 3 individuals who bring their own special flavour of understanding. I am so grateful.

Thank you to the members of Anxiety and Panic for this honor.

By some beautiful twist of fate I was given the opportunity to be part of the moderating team for this fanatastic Forum.

Thanks to all the members who inspire me every day.

Big hugs and cheers for our wonderful mods! You all are not only great at keeping the forum running smoothly, but you're inspiring role models. How you handle your own health problems yet still have time and caring and compassion for the folks who post here really reminds a person how to keep things in perspective.

The environment of this forum is positively wonderful, and I believe much of that is due to all of you.

Love, hugs, and chocolate cupcakes!

Glad to see an appreciation thread for our wonderful moderators.  All of you are the very best and I honestly don't think I'd be where I am today without this site and this site would not be if not for the moderators.  So a humongous thank you to all of you who give your time, compassion, understanding and love to all of us here!

Hi healing,

I have seen that show and I loved it.  Thank you for bringing it up.  I have been spending a lot of time at the U of MN these past 3 months and to see the children being pulled in wagons by there parents makes you feel very humble.

I also had the opportunity to see the Ronald McDonald House.

Amazing.

Special Hugs to  you,

Kitt

Healing pressure

Patch Adams IS one of my most fav movies
It does show that humor can do wonders with disease and the human mind

I watch this movie at least 2 times a year

Many docs out there should watch it as well .IMHO

Take care and be well........LYN

Nikki,

Thank you sweetie.  I sure appreciate your supporting us.  Megs, Lyn, Cowboy and myself love HealingWell and try to support and give the best advise we can. 

The support we gives comes back to us tenfold. We draw our strength from all of you.  We speak up and ask for help too so , in my mind, that is what makes this a great family.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

Im with Nikki- you guys are only human, and yet the work you do here seems SUPER human and its voluntary and i just feel that yes, its important to acknowledge that, but its also more important to ensure that you guys are treated with the respect you deserve.
