    Sherrie,

    youre very welcome. You are and always have been such a beautiful presence here. You are very worthy of the lovely things said but there is no pressure to live up to expectations. There are no expectations, just be the beautiful person you are.

    Hiyaz :)

    My first bunch of JONQUILS the whitish one's because their aroma puts me in such a magic place goes to an absolute ROCK. STARWOLF who I affectionately call ROCKSTAR.
    I'm eternally grateful for her not only being the first one in my survival thread but has been an ongoing amazing support with such clarity in her sound wisdom

    You're an inspiration,support & kind to so many.

    Your strength & intelligence working out how to survive the absolute horrific pits you've endured in your life. Unbelievable.

    You're making my journey and no doubt many others here so much easier, learning untold from you

    True survivor. Kudos lady.

    Thankyou so much, I mean every word I say to you friend. Hope I can be there for you when you need.

    ((( heart hugs )))

    Thank you so much for your kind words. Knowing my many stays in hell can help someone make a bit of sense of their own makes it all worthwhile.

    Daffodils...Yesss ! I too have a fondness for intoxicating scents. I can smell them across cyber space. Great choice.

    hi Starwolf, you know that I don't have to congratulate you, because it's always expected without any doubt, but I thought I might as well add onto this hidden thought, that the words you always say to people who are suffering are just magic, priceless in fact. Geoff.

    My goodness,

    Thank you everyone. My heart is filled to overflowing knowing how much my involvement here means to some of you. We all need to feel like we are welcomed and belong somewhere, that people care and are here for us.

    This forum has helped me immensely over the time I have been connected to it, I'm so blessed to have been a part of it, and part of other people's lives as well.

    We are one heck of a caring community hey!

    Cheers to you all too, from Mrs. D (Dools)

    Thanks for the bouquet of white daisys Nat. Much appreciated.

    Hey Mrs D!

    Sending you a bunch of deep blue roses. (Called 'black' roses) They're extremely rare and difficult to grow. I hope you appreciate the metaphor as it's an honour to be in a team that has you in it.

    I welcome your return with enthusiasm knowing your beautiful character and wisdom is an asset to all concerned. :-)

    Best wishes;

    Sez xo

    Hi Sez,

    Thank you so much. I really appreciate your comments. Even more so as I had a bit of a trying day at one of my volunteer jobs. Snide remarks from staff and my BPD issues do not go together well! Ha. Ha. I had to bite my tongue a few times.

    A bit like those beautiful black roses, patience and acceptance are hard things to grow within myself at times.

    Had a lovely massaged scheduled in the afternoon, so that did the trick to help calm me down again.

    Wishing yourself and all reading, a sense of inner peace.

    Cheers from Mrs. D.
