We are family
My first post after being off AR for so long...I hardly know where to start...I have so many to thank! I'll be doing another one some to name so of the most loyal friends I have here on the Rain, but wanted to just say how much ALL of you mean to me. This would be the perfect place to put the song, "We Are Family", however my main computer is in the shop. Plus I'm still getting used to all the changes on AR, WOW! Just when I was getting to where everything was, I'm gone for a couple of months and they changed everything without consulting me!!! That's just wrong :).
I wish I could just wave a majic wand and take us all here for a few weeks of group hugs & thanks!
One thing that has not changed is the beautiful people here on active rain! When I started reading all the notes, comments, card, and encouragement everyone left me on Judis' post, and on my post (Money Doesn't Grow On Trees...Does It?), that Marchel wrote a post to direct everyone too. Well I'm glad no one was here seeing me laugh and cry to my computer, they might have locked me up for good! It was so wonderful to know after all the time I was gone you did not forget me. There were many prayers said for me as well, and they worked. My friends in the Rain you are the best second family in the world to me.
Thank you is not the right thing to say but will have to do for now...Thank you all it meant the world to me. Marchel was tireless in her efforts to update everyone, keep our group up to speed, call me at the hospitals, she even went in and answered some of the comments to my posts. Judi also wrote a post that messages were left on also and called to check on me several times. There literally were hundreds of messages, I think Dale left one everyday :). After 29 days in the hospital it sure was nice to read them all. You guys are INCREDIBLE, and kind beyond words!
My Texas Real Estate group was in very capable hands...another thanks to Marchel for that too. We are now over 500 members and rank # 21 out th thouslands of groups now on AR. Time for another contest? Let me know what you would like to base our contest on and I'll get started right away! Maybe "Best Hospital in your town"? ...I have a great entry for that as well as the "Worst Hospital", but we want to stay positive, right?
The Friendship Ball was rolled to me so I need to get busy on that one, it will be a long list. Thanks again for everything and I'll be by to visit everyone soon. Love Liz
