MERCY

Hello all. I couldn't find a better word for the title.
MERCY:
1. Compassionate treatment, especially of those under one's power; clemency.
2. A disposition to be kind and forgiving: a heart full of mercy.
3. Something for which to be thankful; a blessing: It was a mercy that no one was hurt.
4. Alleviation of distress; relief: Taking in the refugees was an act of mercy.

Well, today is day 4 for me and that word describes best how I feel about this forum and all of the people here! I can't say it enough, but here I go again: THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you doing a lot better? Day 4 for some is good and others not so. Keep hanging in there.

I am so happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!!  : )     I could type that over and over and over.  What a beautiful thing to write as well.  Damn, I'm just so happy for you, and for your friendship.  Please keep in mind my right shoulder still works, as do my ears, so if you do need 'em, let 'er rip.  I'm hoping all will be smooth sailing.  Doesn't a bit of clarity make you feel so good too?  I keep forgetting by the way, I so wanna pet your dog.  Keep up the great work girlfriend!
