I was reading my book at lunch when I read the following line.... "It's the trials and tribulations people overcome and how they deal with the ones they can't that define a person." That line caught my attention and made me think of the board. I have met the strongest, most supportive and understanding people right here! Each and every one of you has been a life-line, a counselor, a rock, a shoulder, a cheerleader.... There have been many trials, tribulations, joys and tears on this board over the many years I've been here. And I know I'm a stonger person because you've shared your journey with me. I know the troubles I've gone through have helped me grow and that I wouldn't be where (or who) I am without them. I've gone from being a insecure, shy introvert to being a very confident, not-so-shy introvert. I know that I will survive whatever comes my way. And that, given time, things will change. And I have learned to take comfort and joy in my Non-Norman Rockwell life. So....have your troubles defined who you are?
