Tina…you are like me, in that you don't want to leave anyone out, and you are correct…we are indebted a great deal to so many that made a comfortable place for us here on the forum. We were quickly drawn into the family….and we would certainly return the favor if we could. We do that by practicing the same,... as was selflessly given to us, by supporting new and existing members.
It was a joy and quite a surprise at the timing of our post last night. I'm never surprised by your giving, because your heart shines through in your post.
There are a couple of members who quickly come to my mind…in that, I don't know how in the world you do it each and every day with all the health problems you have. Laura, is the other one that comes to mind, and I'm awe struck at the perseverance with which you two show.
I think Chutz was the very first moderator here, and she set the tone and stage early on for a very successful forum. Then of course, others followed, and were well chosen…all of them having their own unique blend of talents to offer to the mix as a team. We also have seen many of the veteran members step forward and offer their talents as well. The forums remind me of a hedge row, one may plant around their property. It serves more than one purpose, and does that well….but it takes someone to keep it trimmed and groomed. In our case here on the CP forum, we have several who willingly and cheerfully take part in that.
Whether they are moderators, or veteran members…it is appreciated! It truly is a debt that does not exists because of the free will of the giver! Again, I'm like you, and understand what was given to us.
