    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to give a cottage garden full of flowers to flitter about in and enjoy to Dragonflies.

    Why? For proving it doesn't matter if you have 1 post or 1000 posts to your username your words can be exactly right.

    I love this...

    I don't disregard your pain, I can see and understand exactly how you are feeling. I would try a new GP... each will be different. And don't hold back.

    I would never have thought to say that. But this reply to a new member is just beautiful and absolutely spot on perfect. I read that and thought YES. You understand.

    So thank you Dragonflies

    🌸🌺🌸🌺🌸🌺

    Nat

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks. I accept your compliment and kind words. There are many times when I doubt my sense of self worth and purpose.

    I humbly appreciate all the kind words people have said and will take4 them to heart, realising, that yes, even in the thick darkness of depression, we all still have a purpose in this world, we all belong, and we are all very precious.

    Cheers from Dools.

    Id like to give Peppermintbach (Pepper) a beautiful garden full of pretty blooming flowers of all sorts with lots of butterflies flying around-esp the white ones.

    she had really stuck by me during some of my worst hours of recent and i really appreciate it. I alway look forward to wonder msgs you leave not only to me but to other members also.

    Thank you Pepper and i hope you enjoy strolling through the gardens with butterflies flying around and landing on you ❤❤

    Thank you Butterfly Wings 🦋

    I’m making myself a floral gown!

    Might not be very practical but it will look and smell pretty 🌸🌼

    Taking a leisurely stroll in the garden with the butterflies fluttering by my side now.

    I'd like to give praise to Dory today. I see her posts to newbies now and then with a meet and greet of welcoming words. Even though they're short, they represent a valuable part of our forum community.

    Well done oh great and powerful one!!! :-) I thank you with a song...'Amazing Grace'. It tells the story of freedom, what life can throw at us, then to rise with strength and grace in the midst of these trials.

    Always a fan...

    Sez xo

    Oh far out dudes, you know I can't do this well,

    Haven't look in here since last time, then picked my grandma, I started swimming backwards,you guys are talking about ME.

    Thankyou so much, but without you all, I wouldn't of come this far. Thankyou for your patience, for some trying to understand me.

    I'm feeling funny,

    Amazing Grace is one of my prayers. You have made me cry. To date My favourite is Karise Eden.

    Sorry I can't do this right. Thankyou

    Dory; I saw what you wrote to a newbie on the 'Three things to be thankful for' thread. Sometimes people turn up in the most unexpected places. I'm glad there's folks like you to give them a hand.

    You deserve the kudos hun. Learning to accept praise is part of recovery. You're doing splendidly!

    Have a wonderful day!

    Sez x

    Pepper; you're welcome! You're doing the doing. :-) Hearts..

    Congratulations Starwolf :)

    As I once said, I have often admired your words from afar. There’s a calm and humble wisdom about you that is very rare...

    Maybe it’s my overactive imagination but I keep thinking of you as being omnipresent on the forums...even when you say very little, i still think you’re watching over us. I mean that in a good way.

    Wishing you much rest and a calm state of mind...

    Awe...thanks Paul!

    I love tulips!

    It's nice to be acknowledged for my new thread topic re Anger. It's a touchy issue for some, but that's ok. We all experience it as humans. It's more about how we express it that's coming across on the thread though.

    Thanks again Paul;
