A heartfelf tribute to Katie_au_lait!


A response I don't want her to miss!

Aw, Katie … thank you for your wisdom AND your friendship. I can remember a time when I was having financial difficulty and you OFFERED to send me money. I'll NEVER forget that heartfelt generosity! EVER! I was happy to graciously decline that offer, never, ever wishing to take advantage of you.... or anyone else. I could foresee it clear … and all worked out well in the final analysis. I tapped my minimal reserve and eventually repaid myself, conscious of spending! HERE, I want the SFF world to know what you're made of!

My face, indeed, wears the roadmaps of my life … which has been anything but easy. In my latter years, I'm probably more comfortable with myself than I've ever been …. no pretense … no need.

Hats off to YOU, my friend. YOU have heart!

Some people never get the credit they deserve! I want to make damned sure they DO!

I furthermore owe a debt of gratitude to MySeek who endowed me with a wonderful gift for which I am eternally grateful. SHE would NOT have me mention it … but I must out of utmost appreciation.

There are wonderful people who reside here on the site, Katie and MySeek among them … even though they seek no attention for their good deeds. THIS is the depth of character I can humbly admire.

Jan, my dear friend, I don't know what to say, your words have left me (almost!) speechless!
One thing I most definitely can say is that I greatly value your friendship too, especially in this pretty hostile environment of SFF. Where, if you don't vote or believe in a certain way, you are fair game for the sharks and their little cleaner fish!!! (And, believe me, they ARE sharks!) The ones who attack just because you exist. Fortunately...in this environment they can do you no damage, unless you allow them to do so.
Basically, they just make it all up, because they don't, know you, and just hope they hit a vulnerable point in your self-esteem. They have no idea that we can see through their tiny minds. That's why I just laugh so much!
They think everyone here hates me because they do, that's why I have no friends, don't you know! . How wrong they are!!!

I HAVE FEW FRIENDS SIMPLY BECAUSE MY "POINTS" HAVE STAYED AT 232 FOR THE LAST EIGHT OR NINE YEARS. SO I CAN'T INVITE OR E-MAIL ANYONE.



Fortunately, I know that I have at least one wonderful friend in you.

Hi Hobs …. sometimes things need be said, right? Katie's good people. So are you, but you don't hang around much anymore, and I haven't gotten a nice gift from you, either! ROFLMAO!!!
