Dear All --

Each one of you is precious and wonderful and gifted and talented. The most talented ones here are the first to offer encouragement to the rest of us, for which I will be eternally grateful!

I am saddened to see we are still suffering growing pains and stepping on each others toes from time to time. When we get our toes stepped on, we need something to make us feel better. And I came up with this idea that continues to evolve even as I write this, so bear with me:

If you are upset by something that has happened here, or know of someone who is, please send me a private message with that person's name, and I will send them something uplifting, whether it's a photo or a quote or just a hug.

HUGE HUGS to everyone!

Meli

That's a great idea!

I might add that when you read a post and it steps on your toes or in some way offends you, take it with a grain of salt. Many times what a person intends to convey is lost in text because we don't have the body language or intonation in the voice that we do when we actually speak to someone in person. This sometimes leads to miscommunication. Try to always be positive and give the person the benefit of the doubt.

Sew very nice of you to do, Meli!

I agree with Bec also: Try to always be positive and give the person the benefit of the doubt.
