I find this site remarkable, simply because of the women that comprise it, and when I stumbled upon the boards looking for advice on a sticky situation for a friend of mine, I had no idea that I was entering a community that I would literally fall in love with….had I known, I might have chosen a more thought provoking screen name.
In recent months I’ve come to rely on this site for compassion, laughter, entertainment, advice and someone to cheer with me as I muddle through life’s victories, however small and insignificant they may seem.
We are all strangers, and yet we know so many things about each other…things others do not…we know about arguments, mistakes, dreams, nightmares…hell, even people’s aversion to tulle or irrational fear of chickens.
I’m feeling nostalgic today, and as I take an account of the things I count myself lucky for having or knowing….this community, and all of you lovely people are certainly a large part of what’s keeping me from huddling in a corner and crying my eyes out.
So with all sincerety, thank you….

@suburbian: +1. Everyone loves Nona99.
@Nona99: You always give the best advice in a thoughtful, funny, honest, and thought provoking way. You have helped me countless times – even if I don’t agree with you (which rarely happens), you still inspire me to think about things in a different way I never considered. Your way with words makes me want to read that book you are working on. I love this community too, and it never ceases to amaze me how kind strangers can be when they choose to, and how much people are willing to help and advise you when they have never even met you.
You are an inspiration in so many ways and so we are all thanking you back! 🙂

@Nona99: and THANK YOU! for always being unapologetically honest, hilarious, straightforward, and just all around AMAZEBALLS 🙂
I’ve made some great webernet friends here, and I’ve had the privilege of meeting several in real life. These women knew I was pregnant before my husband. I’ve had phone coversations about poop. I’ve gotten amazing support here, and I feel lucky to be a part of this community.
I feel lucky to consider you an interweb pal, my dear. I’m sorry you’re having a tough day, but I’m happy you find solace in this little part of cyberspace 🙂

@Nona99: I normally avoid reading “open letter” type posts because they are generally ranty and annoying, but I just couldn’t help myself when I saw that it was you posting. So glad I didn’t pass it by! I couldn’t agree with you more – this is an awesome group of people and I’m absolutely hooked.
