Mark:

That's the way I feel about the you guys here at MS.Org as well. It really is strange feeing such close friendship, baring our very souls to people who understand, but we have never met.... I told another friend here that if we were having face to face meetings, it would have taken FOREVER to have reached the point of transparency we enjoy with one another on a daily basis.

I am thankful for this site. I am thankful for the healing that is taking place in all of us as we discover and walk the path set before us.

Mark,

I am sure your friend will recognize the gesture and appreciate it. I'm glad you bumped that up. I missed it last year and it's a great image - exactly appropriate for what we are trying to do here.

Much love,
Larry
