Thank you Mama Blue & Buddy & Murphy for starting the much valued HUG! And those who cyber hugged me too...well, I felt it!!!
One thing I've learned from everyone here is this: the war we face on a daily basis is won one battle at a time. That may come in the form of encouraging our mate (either way), learning all we can or reaching out to someone here...every day & in every way a battle is won. On the days when it seems we're losing the battle, I log on because I find truth here and it straightens me out!
This board proves that life is a circle. I am honored to be amoung friends here.
If you haven't been to the link Lee mentioned please go there...you'll come away better for it.
