I recently had a really good friend ask if she was here too much, where upon I burst out laughing.  Most of you know, I just about live here, complete with a sleeping bag in the back.  

     I love walking the halls, reading a great discussion, writing a few and saying hello to my friends.  

    I've been here four years now(WOW)at a low point in my life.  I had just left christianity and had decided to become a witch.  I needed information and support, and well, help.  

     My father had also just died and my sister decided to take 'everything, because she deserved it.  Now, I'm not greedy at all.  But, I've spent my married life(25 years now)being poor, and that extra woulod have been, just everything.  Not only that, if the situation was reversed, I would have never done that, I would have split everything down the middle.  At a certain point, we washed our hands of her, let her have everything and changed our phone number.  I sent any letters back, return to sender.

     Anyway, this is where I was, a mess.  Ands the fellowship and friendship I received here is and was, everything.  The love and friendship here, and support has raised me up to new heights.

     to my closest friends:

Terry, now gone, my first friend here



Red Wolf


Evening Star



Nyz, now gone

Mystic Rose


Rosey, who I am strangely in sync with these days.  I don't have to tell her anything anymore because she already knows.

To everyone else, thank you for always being there for me.

Sunkat, my husband thinks I'm crazy, but we are indeed a family.  We are there for each other,always.  As to the long story of my father and my sister, I'll work on that next.  There is no love loss there, only hurt.

To everyone who has commented...I love you all

I am so sorry to read about what happened to you with your own sister and after suffering through the loss of your father.  I can understand a low point in one's life as well which is what brought me to the internet and eventually Ning.  Some people roll their eyes when you mention you have internet friends/family but they don't get it.  If I hadn't met some of the people I have I wouldn't have made it.  I felt alone and I have horrible depression so I felt often times in the past as if I was drowning and I was so isolated.  Fast forward a few years and I have my own community and so many wonderful people - truly sincere and fascinating people. I am so glad that you and I became friends Linda and I look forward to getting to know you.

Shout out to Kyst > Love ya Sis!  Really all of the ladies who commented on this post - I admire each of you!

Linda,first of all a  big (((((hugg))))  to you for what you had to go through with your sister.....especially  following the loss of your father.....that alone can be sometimes   too much to bare  let alone  having a sibling like this......that's one thing i been blessed with mine and i are very close...i cant imagine it being any other way..though many people including in my own family my two cousins..... have somewhat the same issue.....Its  terrible....and im sorry shes hurt you like this......sometimes  blood really isn't thicker then water.....as they say...

do know though...you have some people here who  love and adore you....including me ( :  your family...truly ........its amazing how  so many people , we become close too,which we other  wise  ( without the internet) would not have met.....i have a few i met even  from before coming to the ning.....which ive been friends with  for now over 10 yrs....omgash  10 yrs online! whoa!  lol

people whom i met after a  while in person......4 of them....others  i was close to and still keep in touch via  facebook or email.....each has  really  inspired me in many ways........ each I've learned from    about many  things  different paths and about myself ....ive grown through each and everyone of you...

Mystic rose, Linda ,Bryan,Fuzzynails,Rosey,
