    A bouquet of beautiful multi coloured orchids for startingnew for being a beautiful person. Starts is so supportive, not just to me but very one else here, as well as struggling with her own problems.

    love you starts! ❤️

    To dear Tony (White Knight),

    I saw your bus badge is yellow today. Champion alumni. And felt gutted. For you. For us.

    The fact that you don't feel able to be a CC anymore was a huge wake up call to me. That we are human. That there is only a certain amount we can give of ourselves until we need to self care. I worry about you.

    Thank you for all that you have given to us. Thank you for your poems when we're down. For starting so many threads to make us think and question.

    I'm not sure if you're reading or if you need space from it all to self care but I wanted to say you are always welcome and wanted here. Please don't isolate yourself.

    No words big enough.

    A thousand thankyou and pink flowers because I know you like the colour.

    Love Nat

    When I created this thread, I never thought that one day I'd be giving thanks to someone for this;

    My dear Karen/Grandy;

    Suicide Watch isn't something I thought you and I would be doing together on this forum. However as you know, we kept vigilant over one of our community brothers early hrs of this morning, even though it was extremely distressing for us.

    Your support was outstanding in the face of adversity and deserves recognition to the highest degree. You're an amazing woman! Coming not only to his aid, but also mine when I was exhausted and worried beyond words. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart; it was a beautiful act of kindness...

    Sending you 24 perfect deep red roses surrounded in pure white Baby's Breath; nothing more would suffice.

    We're both deserve congratulations;

    Warm thoughts;

    Sez xo

    Well done to both Sez and Grandy :)

    You’re both deeply compassionate, caring and generous people.

    You have clearly both blessed this community brother that you speak of with your love and kindness.

    Those roses sound perfect for you, Grandy. Very well deserved. Beautiful choice of flowers for you...

    Love H x H

    Pepper xoxo

    Dearest Sara,

    Awe Sara, thank you very much for your kind words and the beautiful flowers...

    They were extremely distressing hours, with many tears of frustration trying to will him to say something...

    I have never been happier in my life when he started speaking again...

    Sara I really hope that you gave yourself 24 perfect deep red roses surrounded by pure white baby's breath..

    If you haven't, I certainly am giving you the the same right now.. You are so very deserving as well....

    Thank you again Sara...

    Grandy.....Karen. xx

    Sez and Karen,

    I feel honoured to be part of a forum that has your two as members.

    That was an amazing effort by both of you and you both deserve a bouquet.

    I hope you both look after yourselves today after that mammoth effort.

    Kind thoughts to both

    To Ms. Doolhof (I hope I spelt that correctly).

    I present to you, a box o' chocolates. I thank you for commenting on soooo many threads and being a help and supportive to not only myself, but so many others that turn to these forums for answers, advice and support.

    You've earned this one Dools, I truly mean it.

    Sincerely,

    Just Another Guy.

    Hey Just Another Guy,

    I don't usually check this thread much, something made me have a look just now.

    Thank you so very much for your very kind comments!

    You have made my day! Virtual Chocolates, maybe the best kind ever! They can be anything I desire them to be!

    Many people have helped and supported me on this forum. We can all make a difference in a person's life.

    Cheers to you too Just another Guy

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm sending out a great big huge "THANK YOU" to everyone who responds to someone on this forum.

    There are far too many people for me to mention you one by one.

    So to One and All, thank you for the amazing community you have helped to create!

    Hi everyone! I'd like to relay some thoughts from my intro post on here. It explains why I started this thread...

    'Every now and then, members share a beautiful Pearl of Wisdom. How often do you think to yourself; "OMG that's great! I wish everyone could see this."
    Presenting someone with a bunch of flowers is a generous way of acknowledging their insightful words.
    I hope this thread stays active through members giving out praise regularly to people they feel are deserving and therefore keep generosity of spirit alive within the pages of BeyondBlue Forum'

    That was 17 March 2017 and 17 pages of love since! My how 17 has become a power number!

    You're all in my thoughts today because love has no bounds and acknowledgement of that sentiment resonates throughout the pages of our beautiful community.

    Keep up the great work all you wonderful souls!

    Sara xoxo

    For birdy 🌻

    The person that I would like to say a very heartfelt thank you to is birdy. I feel she has written some deeply compassionate and emotionally attuned posts to not just me but to many others as well (newer members and regulars alike).

    Emotionally attuned posts are more difficult to write than at first glance. It’s a subtle quality but when done well, it can be extremely powerful...

    This isn’t the “dictionary definition” but I think of being emotional attuned as an advanced/highly evolved form of empathy an compassion. It really is a rare quality and I frequently see birdy showing it...

    I’m really grateful you’re here and truly value your friendship and presence here. I think you’re a very special person with beautiful qualities. Thank you for sharing those qualities with us...

    As a thank you gesture, i would like to gift you with a field of sunflowers and a grassy area for you to spend some time outdoors with your lovely partner, beautiful doggie friend, chooks and other animal friends :)

    Love,

    Pepper

    Emotional attunement is a rare gift. It’s taking compassion one step further...

    Love,

    Pepper xoxo
