Title: Thank you
Post by: Erica McPhee on May 10, 2018, 10:09:15 PM
It seems impossible that this is my 5,000th post!  :-*

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Flourish over the past four and half years. It is a true delight to have a group of friends available 24/7 to talk to, ask questions of, provide answers to, etc.

I am forever grateful for all of our members who continue to make Flourish a place of sharing and love every single day.

I just saw the post count.   ;D  I have barely crossed a 1000 and that took a LOT of time and effort.  5000 posts is just mind blowing. 

It is all of us 7309 members of this forum that should be thanking you for creating such a Magical platform.  Your dedication, selfless hard-work and pure love that you exude for us, is what makes this forum what it is. 

Eternally grateful for this world that you have created

Gratitude!  Thanks for having us in your world.

The dedication of the founding members made this Forum a joy to be associated with.  Your encouragement and exemplary act of kindness embraced us here on the Forum.

If not for this Forum, I would have long gone given up my penmanship which is a true lost.

Thank you @Erica McPhee

I think it is already clear what we all think:

Thank YOU, Erica!

You have made possible a wonderful community of talented, helpful, sharing and awesome people, in a world where sadly that is not very common. That is a big achievement! And 5000 posts! That's another big achievement!!  ;D
