Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL post, Laurie!!!!! I guarantee you touched many today; I sure felt it!

Congratulations on 30 years, and thank you for your insight and honesty.

And, yes, thanks to CarolD too - I feel like she's reading my mind when she posts the meditations.....always just what the Doctor ordered.

If you are talking about my signature, you are partly correct. That was my Kita, a Wolf Dog, 75% wolf and 25% domesticated dog.

If you are talking about my Avatar, that is Shania, My 100% Belgian Sheepdog, of the Groendahl variety, lol

Again, thank you all for your warm wishes.

Love and hugs,
