I just want to say a 'thankyou' to the anonymous nice people, who pop in and out of ones life at times.

Thankyou to the people I have never met ( or only once) who offered to pay my membership here.

Thankyou to the person who pmd with caring thoughts and good advice just now :-)

Thankyou to all those who post a cheerful thread which makes me smile.

Thankyou to all those who are grumpy and reassure me that it's 'not just me who is in a bad mood today' ;-)

Thankyou to all who spot my typo's lately and don't pull me up on it, I appreciate that more than you know :-)

Please feel free to post your thanks to 'anonymous', here or offline :-D

Thank you to the small but perfect band of GR members who have supported me in the last two difficult years. And a special thank you to a certain Cheshiretonian who rings up to check on me and then talks about herself for half an hour. You know who you are :-) <3

And, as we are about it, thanks to you Rose for...just being you <3

It is the small acts of kindness shown to us that make us all appreciate each other.

And these come from very surprising places at times.

Thank you Rose for your threads. I look out for them.

All I can say Rose, you get back what you give out. :-D

@ BC You have just made me laugh, I lived near a lady just like that. :-D :-D


AnninGlos Report 21 Feb 2013 13:06

What a lovely thread. Thank you Rose for your cyber friendship and for running the writing thread while you felt able.

And thank you also to BC I value your friendship very much on here.

And thanks to everyone who posts on the craft thread, the bird thread and the Greaders reading thread. Always so good to have people who share the same interests.

Last but not least, thank you to everyone who make me laugh, give me interesting tips and generally share a cyber friendship with me. <3 :-) :-)

I too give thanks for the nice people I have met here over 9 years now. No longer being mobile now I really appreciate the friendship and advice, the laughter etc.

Isn't it nice that we can have cyber friendships?
No one need feel alone when you can share your thoughts with someone who is at a distance.
This was not possible a few years ago,so we can think ourselves lucky that we have the Internet .
There are so many,and I know a few....who can't be bothered to get into this age of technology.Im so glad I did because this site has helped me through a lot of the challenges I have had over the last few years.its far better than sitting feeling sorry for yourself.

So thank you everyone for listening and sometimes advising...and giving tips....the list goes on...I look forward to spending ,hopefully,a few more years on Genes <3 :-) :-)
