I'm not back just saying a quick 'Hello and a couple of 'Thank yous'

Firstly thank you to a lovely lady we’re all fortunate enough to know on here!

I’m still having a break but popped on yesterday briefly and springcross was the voice I ‘heard’.

Immediately I felt happy!!!

I’m having a little chuckle now as I know we have had a few laughs over a few of my more ‘creepy ‘ moments, by this I mean when I may have been ‘sucking up to’ someone by being overly complementary, in a good way! However I’m just being completely honest here, springcross, you are a lovely lady!

I first came across springcross on another forum and straight away thought, this is a GOOD person, and I was right! To spare her blushes I'll say no more, but I could!

Anyways, the point of this waffle is to say, I was quite down yesterday, to say the least, got a pm from 13ga which raised my spirits, THANK YOU, came on to see his post, spoke to you springcross and came away with a smile on my face! Really!!!

You made a difference to my day, and this is not the first time!

So, again, Thank you, I know you'll have made, and will continue to make, big differences to many many peoples’ days all around , and this is GREAT! I’ve said it before and will continue to say it, I applaud and APPRECIATE you!

And to 13ga, Rob, again, thank you for thinking of me! You too made a big difference to my day, honestly! And you too make a BIG difference! So I’m giving you the credit you very much deserve and that I doubt very much you’ll give yourself!

Whilst I’m here, a big ‘HI’ to all you other lovely lot, hope you’re all faring well.

I’ve looked in now and then and laughed and tutted to myself as I saw the same old slightly dysfunctional ‘family’ trundling along, sharing trials and tribulations, squabbling, as families do, laughing, encouraging, caring and, just in general, being there for each other.

Some things never change, and some things you never want to!

I’m now saying a bit THANK YOU EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU, you ALL make a difference, so keep it up!

I said to myself I’d take a break, focus on getting a bit healthier, losing some weight, maybe start to feel a bit better about myself. Well I’ve done none of those, quite the opposite, but I’m still trying!

I’m taking a bit more time but yesterday made me realise I do miss PWB and all of you. Take good care all!

Niao;

i'm flabbergasted... and would be blushing, if i knew how!! :-) i certainly don't deserve all that praise; as there's far too many on this site that do far more than me...

i can't possibly begin to thank you for such kind words, and praise. i don't take compliments easily... but i must admit... it does really feel good!!

thank you for giving me a needed lift today!!

.

i couldn't be more thrilled that you got a smile from my post - i'd heard you were having a tough time; and i'm glad you popped in for a quick visit!!

.

i'm sooo very touched by your post. i wish we were closer - i'd love nothing more than to give you a humungulean uber hug!! you've got my eyes welling up... and i've been numb for some time... thank you.

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

You do! And you're very much welcome! Thank you Rob, for caring and being you!

Hope I've not embarrassed you but it needed to be done! 😊💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

13ga in reply to Niao

it is a bit embarrassing... but i also have to say, i'm thankful you did... not easy to hear that stuff... i feel awkward; not sure how to take it... but i cannot tell you how nice it also was to hear... so heartwarming, touching.... made me feel like i mattered; made a difference; felt appreciated...

i dont know what to do w/ compliments so much... but they are ever so appreciated, and really make me feel good!!! 😳😳😳😊💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Niao in reply to 13ga

😊 That’s because you do! Matter, very much! You do very much make a difference! And you are, very much, appreciated! And don't you ever forget this!!!Take great care and hopefully we'll both get a little further up that hill and back to a semblance of our normal, or should I say un normal selves!😁💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

13ga in reply to Niao

i absolutely love all of that... TYVM...

i especially love the last part.... that we both get further up that hill - and find a new un-normal - or simply, a new better normal!!!

really like that idea... i'd really like to do that and get there!

timing ironic... i just got off the phone w/ a friend who's about to upend their life, and "go for" what they want to do next!! they asked me... what's MY 'next' ?? and what holds me here. it was a great (and disturbing) conv.

mostly disturbing, b/c the only things holding me here... have nothing to do with my current living situation.... sad statement; sad realization - tho not really realization, b/c i've known this for many years now.

heh guess i've blathered on enough...

here's to conqurering our hill!!!! 👍👍👍👍 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

And vice versa Marilyn! You take very good care and hopefully I'll be back baiting before too long!😊💜💕💜💕

Oh my goodness Niao, I don't know what to say, I'm gobsmacked. Thank you very much for those lovely words but you know you're not so bad yourself either and you happen to be one of my favourite people just so you know. Thank you also for that lovely picture of the wren, it really is absolutely gorgeous and you really are very kind. You take care now sweetheart and get well 'cos you're missed a great deal here. 💛xxxx

😊Awwwh, that means an awful lot! I do mean this and am sorry if I cause any embarrassment but I'm a firm believer in giving recognition to those who deserve! It’s difficult to fully get to know people online but, if you pay attention, it’s evident those who are genuine kind, caring people, who have no agenda and actually mean what they say, and you are one! And you make me smile!🤗💜💕💕

Good to hear from you Niao, hope to see you back soon.

I would like to echo everything you have said about springcross who has been a great support to me and a true virtual friend. 🙂🌈

Aww R, thank you very much, you've been a true virtual friend too. xx

Spring blossom for springcross.

Apple blossom.

Oh R, that's absolutely lovely, thank you very much, it's very sweet of you to do that. Are they your trees? If so, you've got some lovely fruit to look forward to if those blossoms are anything to go by. Thank you again. xx

Yes springcross, it’s just a small Laxton Superb apple tree which should really have been grown as an espalier but I preferred it as an upright so it’s a bit misshapen, it’s covered in blossom this year. It just needs a few more days of sun on it, then it will be in full bloom. 🙂🌸🐝

Hello there! Great to 'see' you! Thank you so much. I had been thinking of you and wondering how you were, meaning to get in touch but just always out of energy, so it's lovely to 'hear' your voice! Really hoping all is well and will pm properly soon. Take good care too.😊💜💜💜💜💜💜
