    Gracui, Believe me when I tell you, that any heartfelt sentiment, such as, the one that you delivered to me, is more than eloquent for anyone's taste! Thank you, bunches, G-man!

    Heavenly Lord, I come to You today to lift up my dear sister, whose health is failing badly and who needs Your touch of healing on her life. Lord we know that You are the Giver of life You know exactly what is the problem from which my sister is suffering - and we pray that in a wonderful way You would touch her and heal her as only You can.

    Father we know that You still have power to heal and sometimes to choose to heal a person and at other times Your will is to be an ever-present Help in the midst of our distresses and we ask Lord that whatever Your reason for my sister’s deteriorating health that You would give her the sufficient grace that You have promised to all Your children – so that you demonstrate not only to them but to those that have to do with them an amazing grace that only You can provide.

    Nevertheless Father I pray that You will see fit to heal my sister and to raise her to full health and strength – but may Your perfect will be done in her life.. and we will give you all the praise and all the glory, for You alone are worthy to recover our worship and praise, in Jesus name I pray,

    Amanda, Thank you, for sending some "Sweet Blessings" my way!
    Because of my multi-cultural exposure and upbringing, Baskin-Robbins has 30 flavors, Heinz has 57 varieties, and I have personally lost count of my earthly influences. But it is much closer to the century-mark than I would really care to admit to, but I have never seen much difference between, "The Great Spirit, The Heavenly Father, The Allfather, or any other "Higher Being, or that of a Supreme Intelligence, or Universal Spark", that entity certainly must have taken the care and time to create all of us, here on this waterfilled-rocky globe that is hurtling through space at such an astounding speed, and in a such a fashion that it belies perception to the most common of our limited senses. Faith, of any type, is appropriately good to have!

    Whatever those sources are, Godly or science-based I am extremely grateful, for whoever is watching out for our world and our humble, and sometimes meager existence. I do know that this "World" is a much better place for everyone, whenever we all take the care and time to watch out, for one another!

    Amanda, Let me assure you the feeling is mutual.
    You have never shown me anything but kindness since I first arrived!
    I have always known your true heart!

    Amanda, Thank you, for all of those kind words and I appreciate your candor, but please be careful, and try your best to follow all of the rules, as they are applicable to all of us.

    There are some folks here, that think I was somebody's pet. I've never been anybody's lap dog. I am a very independent person, that is always trying to choose the right avenue and pursue the kindest options to resolve any conflicts.

    I never arbitrarily used my former position for anything, that wasn't best for IB, and everyone concerned. If there was ever a dilemma or any uncertainty to any
    type of any resolution of a dispute, I always ran it up the chain of command, you should know that very well, as you were contacted quite often by me, while you were an uber staffer/poster here at IB.

    You taught me many useful skills and greatly contributed to my success here at IB. So, I've always held you in an higher esteem and was very thankful when you made room for me on the IB Staff. You have never done anything wrong by me, and have very many great qualities. You subsequently, revealed your "Good Heart" to me, early on. Thank you, again!

    Pssst! Color me an IB girl 4 life!

    Sometime during the last two weeks, I was exposed to and contracted a "Viral Respiratory Infection" it has complicated my recovery in the short term. I am an easy target because my immune system is currently quite low. Fortunately, I'm on the mend from the Virus now and should become stronger due to finally fighting that little viral nastiness off.

    I should probably try to be a bit more careful. Especially so, whenever I frequent places that sell groceries or sundries. I was wearing protection and was gloved and masked when in the public, and yet somehow, that itty-bitty bug found its way through my defenses. I was pretty dang ill for a while, but it just wasn't my piece of kryptonite!:D

    Glad to hear you're on the mend dear lady. It's nice to have you back on here at least part time. You have been missed. I don't want to lose you again so take care of yourself.

    Amanda, Just so you know, I do feel that life "has" given me a break. My doctors caught this leukemia soon enough to eventually break the cycle. Surely, no one enjoys taking pills or being ill, but for me, it is another second chance, and the Lord only knows how many second chances a person is given.

    I count all of my "Blessings" every single day and I will continue to do so until I draw my last breath. I will never cry over, how much or how little, is on my short life's small plate. I've managed to place myself in harm's way too many times, not to recognize a second chance when I see one.

    I receive those "Blessings" every day, from all of the "Good Folks" here at IB! I'm very appreciative of all of the kind words and sentiments that are shared on my behalf. All of those sweet words help me to keep a positive attitude and buoy me up when I struggle through the harder moments. All of you together constitute, "The air beneath my wings!" I am very appreciative and thankful for each and every one of you!

    Damn Anna. you know I never like to hear of you falling ill to anything. You've gone through far too much already in your short life. But at least you know that you have so much love and good wishes from the far corners of this wonderful planet.

    Love you precious little Lady....I say my prayers for you every day. :)

    I was away for a while, my internet server folded and we were without service for about 10 days. We are way back in the sticks, and so, we had to wait until our "new" provider was able to physically access our new receiver/transmitter on site.
