My home is not a place, it is people.
And especially thank you, ForeverSerenity!

I've always known that JoeUser is a blogging community, and when I hear about things happening in other bloggers lives I'm often interested. A baby is born and I'm thrilled for those parents I've never met in the flesh. When someone looses a pet or a loved one I mourn for them. When someone has a good or bad day I genuinely like hearing about it, and I'll leave a comment if I think I can be of any use at all.

My mother has been ill. Your comments and good thoughts have helped me through the rough times. Today the nicest thing happened and it quite literally made me burst into tears (good tears). ForeverSerenity sent me a card for my mother. It's this kind of thoughtfulness that really brings home what a community is, and how helpful and wonderful it can be to be a part of one.

So forgive the sappiness of this post, but I just have to thank you JoeUser, and thank you in particular to ForeverSerenity. You have made my day and my mother and father will be deeply touched when they get your card. Your outstanding kindness moved me to tears and "thank you" hardly covers it.

Best Wishes to all JoeUsers this holiday season.

I also agree that JU is a real community of real people that share almost every aspect of their lives with each other.  Some people will tend to think it's not real, but I would have to disagree.

Best wishes to you, and have a great holiday, and thank you for your help this year.  You don't know how much it meant to me.

Happy Holidays Joeuser!

We help each other, ID.

Me? I feel like I haven't given much at all, actually. I should get more involved!
