I want you all to know that I love being a part of this community and each and everyone of you have made my life richer in so many ways. Thank you for that.

Can you tell us about a particular time when someone from here or something changed you somehow? How where you influenced? Tell us a story!

I will share mine later after I get the girls from school.

Aww, thanks Viv! And right back at'cha

So many day to day encouragements that I can't even count! You've (gals here) have kept me entertained when bored at night, and lifted my spirits when I was down.

Most specifically though, was through my cancer journey. The # of cards I received from SJ gals was amazing! Seems like so many of you were with me every step of the way

I joined when I was staying home with Helen - and this community made me feel a PART of something, when I was feeling so alone and isolated.

There are so many ways! I love the genuine caring and support here through the good times and the bad.

I also want to add that I wish I could meet everyone in person. That would be so much fun for all of us to be in the same place.

Aw you too Vivi!

I am constantly amazed and gratified by the generosity of spirit, as well as pocket, of everyone here. So many random acts of kindness and moral support in a crisis. So many real friends made. So many meetings in real life that wouldn't otherwise have happened.

It's hard to choose just one. Each and every handmade card I've received from you, past and present, every amazingly generous package, every kind word means so much to me.

I suppose the most important part was the very beginning. This was only the second message board I had ever posted in. I lurked for a while, and then my first post was in a thread where people had got heated. I defended the underdog and got well flamed. It was Tamara (FirehairedWAPA) who PMed me and told me to stick around. I'm so thankful she did!

I too always dream of meeting all of you, I actually have it planned in my head. I do believe it's only a matter of time until I do!

There were several several times that truly made grateful to be a part of this community. I was touched and so very humbled though when I had Lucia. First, you all worried and took action when you didn't hear from me right away. Then, I was amazed at all the cards, packages and good wishes when I came home. I never knew people could care about me like that, I really did not. I was so wonderstruck. Then there were those who I believed ignored me or plain disliked me here and proved me wrong. I don't want to say names but I'm delighted to know them! I warms my heart that our small little place in the internet is so wonderful because of the contribution of every individual who interacts withing these cyber walls.

It seems so silly, but the cookies from Marty.

I know you all haven't known me for that long, but I have known you all for a very long time, lol. The genuine care shown from you wonderful ladies kept bringing me back, even though I'd been too shy to introduce myself. And now that I am actually a part of this amazing community I feel truly blessed.

I was actually in Texas during one of the scrapfest get togethers. I soooo regret being too shy to just march over and introduce myself. Should you have another one, I will be on the first available plane!!

You all where here when I was happy and when I was sad, helpful words for everything, homemade cards, that mean a lot to me.
I even got to meet Rosey in real life this year and she is as nice as she is here. I am sure everyone else is too and I would love to meet everyone someday. I am pretty sure, that won't happen tough , but a girl can dream.
I love this place!

I am going to jump in with my comment. I love each and everyone of you. Since I don't get out much I so look forward to reading your comments on here. I don't write on here often but I really enjoy each of you. I miss some of the ones who only come on once in awhile. I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.

We are our own little group, and if things aren't sunny for whatever reason, you can think something like "I'll see what's going on at SJ" and someone will be here.

I like the advice and support, the way you make me laugh when I need a good laugh and I also like that we can agree to disagree sometimes. I think that is important in any type of "friendship."

I also like listening to different perspectives on things that we all have. It is amazing that some of us who live in the same country are so diverse.

And I love getting to know everyone from out of the US too. I want to visit everyone!!
