As I'm sitting here sipping tea through my daily-read of the UC forum I was stopped dead in my tracks by a thought I just had. And obviously, I felt so compelled I had to share it!
We are awesome!
All of us collectively and individually - never stop. We never stop looking for what else could help. We're always looking, thinking, researching, trying and tweaking things for a way to make life better. We are our own gineau pigs in the sense that we venture right out there with new and different ideas and are then able to share the results. That takes a lot of guts! (hehe)
We don't just lie down and accept a difficult life with UC (though sometimes, myself included, we have those days!) we tirelessly work to help ourselves and each other - and that is a pretty grand thing if you ask me.
So thanks, all of you, I bet you don't know how much you all mean to me and how kindred I feel having this space we all share.
Yay us! We rock! *pat on our backs*
