Hey Gang, thanks so ever much. I am excited and it makes me feel like I can give a little something back to HW. I been around here about 6 yrs and the support and help I have received is ubelievable. When I found this place I was at the lowest time of my life with chronic illness' and this place turned my life and thoughts around. So, yes, I have a very heavy debt to repay somehow, can't think of a better way to start.

This place has the best extended family around. So, we will all just keep chugging along and helping Chutzie & LindaLoo the best can. This week has been catch up week for getting my hugs and I love you granny in, grandbaby went on vacation for 10 days, it was awful for me, terrific now,lol. Hugs to all. Susie

You have been repaying for a very long time already! At least ever since I joined the forum you've been a source of help and knowledge, and I bet it's gone back the entire 6 years you've been here!
