I want to wish each and every one of you the Very Best New Year ever. On this forum are some of the bravest, funniest, and most inspirational people I`ve ever met, and I feel privileged that I`ve been allowed to do so.

Because of my job, I`ve become conditioned to listening to, and helping - well trying to! - others. I seldom talk about my own feelings. I try to deal with things alone. Now, I have dozens of wise, caring friends who allow me to say as much or as little as I want to.

I also want to thank Guy, Jean, and the other mods, who give up their time to create a safe place for us all.

I raise my glass to you all. Thanks for being there..........Ange. n015.gif

    I wish you all the very best too, Ange, for the forthcoming year as I do everyone. Enjoy your time on the cruise! I shall raise a few glasses to you all this evening. :D:D:D

    I will be on the ferry for a short while tonight, on my way to Isle of Wight to celebrate the new year with friends and then back on the ferry in the morning. I love a walk by the sea, early on New Year's day.

    Love and best wishes to you all, each and everyone of you.

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.

    Ange, you have always been there for everyone else and I would hope that we can be here for you if you need us.
    Your wise words have often sorted out what feel like major problems for others - goodness knows, with all the trauma of a house move coming up, I will probably be in line, too!

    I wish you a very Happy New Year and success in looking for a lovely little companion..........it's just what you need.

    Hi Ange

    I'll raise my glass to you this evening and hope the New Year is a good one for you. I really do hope you find a companion this year who can fill a little of the void.

    May I also add my thanks here to everyone who made me welcome on the site and wish you all a very Happy New Year.

    Hi Ange

    What a lovely post :!: :!:

    I would like to thank you for just being you :!: You are so caring and kind, and you helped me a lot when I was dithering about knee surgery. Despite listening to the problems of others in your work, you still have time for us on here.

    I do hope you will have a good year in 2010, and I look forward to a continuing friendship with you.

    Happy New Year

    Love from Joan

    that is a lovely post!!! this site is a god send - i have had a moan today and had some lovely replies given with sencere concern, and that can sometimes be main thing for all of us who have to fight this horrid illness!!!
    I come on this site at least every day, sometimes I laugh - rehab is the best one to make me laugh!!!! Sometimes I cry when I read the pain and horror that some of you have to endure!!! Sometimes I wish I could do more than just read things, but cyber hugs is about it!!!

    Best wishes to you all - where ever you are - and I hope the new year brings better things!!!!!!
