    You are a GREAT bunch of friends.

    As I sit here and read the daily posts I can't help but to tear up at how lucky I am to have found such a wonderful group of friends. Each and every one of you are wonderful. I read the SS group posts and tear up every time. Maybe I'm moody today? Whatever...You all make my heart swell with pride just knowing you are there. Thank you everyone!
    Hugs

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone. . . Not your housework!!

      Hey Rhonda, you are a gem for all of us to have gotten to know! Isn't it amazing how this group feels like family? I've been teary lately also, can't exactly decide why. We've had a lot of dreary days, maybe that's my problem. I cried today after I voted--go figure what brought that on.

      So glad to have you as a friend! Looking forward to Paducah in spring, hope you are able to go again!

          I am addicted to getting on here first thing in the morning and first thing when I get home from work. I may not post everyday but I am here with all of you.

            Bless you all.... it is a very special place... always some one here with a word of encouragement or praise or help!!! This my addiction and way to pass time when i don't feel like doing anything else,,, and yes, to a fault, it does "keep me from doing a lot of things",, but for me, the human spirit and friendships like we have here at M* are more important than most things in life.. it's like family..I think i maybe one of the OLDER ones... funny how most don't mention age... but me,,,, i've earned and am proud of each wrinkle and ripple!!!!!! This part of my life may be a bit more "painful physically"... but it sure is restful most of the time... i remember the 18hr. days and how it never felt like work, with all that energy, but can't imagine doing that now...
            As for the "tearing"... i don't let many see, but hardly a day goes by that i don't tear from feeling so fortunate,,,, or being angry because a lot of younger people "just don't get it",,, or just find something one of my GF's says so funny we laugh til' we cry...
            my quote at the bottom says it all...
            Thank You all for being who you are... and thank you M* for what you have built for us... hugs GrammaBabs

              I used to laugh (not directly at her) whenever my daughter spoke of her friends in far-away places (She's a Ravelry lady - a knitter). And now I find myself doing the same thing. "My friend in Idaho." "My friend in Ohio." "My friend in New England." . . . "My friend Rhonda, in Kentucky."

              You all are the BESTEST of the BEST.

              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                  I feel the same. I bought my SS a gift today and told my mother in law that it was going to ........... She could not wrap her head around that. And where did you meet this friend? Why in my quilt group of course. LOL!!

                    Right back at 'cha, Rhonda. Couldn't agree more with your statement about this forum being made up of such wonderful folksies. (as our Dear Blondie would say!)
                    It is very heartwarming and comfy cozy. I agree with Sandy, too. I often say "you know, she's a friend from the forum" when I am talking about something I read or a project we are all working on.

                      I know exactly how you feel Rhonda. This wonderful place, and amazing people on here, feel more like family some days than my own true family. I feel blessed every day, that God sent me to this wonderful place. I love each and every one of you, and am proud to call you my friends. Ok now you got me crying.

                        That goes for me too.....I appreciate all of you! Can't even count how many times I mention ".......on the forum" when talking to others or how many times you'll have lifted my spirits! Consider yourselves hugged!

                          I haven't posted much lately but I am here several times a day checking up on what is going on. I feel the tug on my heart strings, share a giggle, get upset, laugh out loud and just generally feel warm and fuzzy when I am here. It is a wonderful place full of warm people. And Sandy, I am old too and have earned all the character lines, lumps and bumps and am **** proud of 'em!!!!!!

                            Rhonda, you're absolutely right. This forum is my saving grace for my sanity. lol Every day many of you are mentioned over my lips or by my fingers to my family or other friends or people I run across in life. My Cyber Angels in many ways keep my on my toes.

                            Must be something in the air, 'cause like Jean and you, I too have been teary these last few days. Today I got up at 3 am, too riled up because we needed to go voting! I've always voted but this year it was very, very imported to get our votes in! Not only for President but for Mayor of Honolulu and our Senate/Congress. After that it was like a weight was lifted of my chest. It is what it is, but I had my say, da*n it!

                            My friends here are like family, in the last year we've done special quilts for sick children, husbands, brothers, friends for each other. Shown our work to each other, laughed, cried, shared our "Do you know what my DH did today, can you believe it?!?", you name it. I know that someone will pick up that I'm having a "dark" fibro day or severe pain day and will PM me, lift my spirits up, give the that cyber hug that will get me through the day. Like wise I will reach out to someone when I see a post that I know doesn't sound like their normal self.

                            That's what makes this Forum unique and caring. MSQC is a special company, a family business that cares about their customers and I hope that they keep that unique, small family business model core model in place as they continue to grow. They are great as are all of YOU!

                              I totally agree with everything said above.....I have choked on my coffee, laughed until I cried, and in general say...you know; that forum I belong to...they are the best and I often refer people to the MSQC store website as well! I love this place! And all the people in it! Hugs, Susie
