    Default Wishing Each of You a Happy Thanksgiving

    I just wanted to wish all my American forum friends a Happy Thanksgiving and to let all my international forum friends know how thankful I am to have you as part of my life. I have learned so much from each of you about growing orchids and about how connected each of us are in spite of governments and religions. Because of you and this forum I am not only a better orchid grower but a better person and I am so thankful for that. There is much to be Thankful for this year at our house. George has recovered rapidly from his emergency open heart surgery. He looks and feels better than he has for a long time. He is looking forward to next week when he can resume driving and can go back to work. Again I am thankful to this forum for the support and comfort you gave during those first difficult days one month ago. Your concern and encouragement helped me more than you will ever know. May the Powers of the Universe bless you all.

    Among the many things for which I am thankful, you, the members of this lovely forum, come to mind close to the top of the list. You have become very dear to me this year. Thank you for being so warm and welcoming.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all. This was the first forum I found and it feels like home.

    Bill, so very glad to hear that George is recovering well. What a gift that you will have each other longer and healthier.

    To the rest of you, thank you for coming into my life and bringing me the smiles and tears of interacting with you. Thank you for the knowledge that you share. Thank you for being willing to help with flower problems or personal problems. Thank you for being a shoulder to lean on in times of trouble. I truly am glad to have you all in my life.
