    Just read the article – you make me laugh out loud – such great medicine you are! I have a friend just like you – and I treasure her SO much, for bringing out the “sistahood” (that’s what I call it) in me.
    God bless that beautiful soul of yours. XO! And thanks to you, I have a fantastic new website to enjoy.

    CONGRATULATIONS, Terese!!! Now other people are going to join your/our BB family :-) That’s because of you and your amazing, insightful and most importantly, relevant articles. You understand, you’ve been there and you can put in down in words! I’m not judging other sites, but they aren’t all run and written by people who have lived in the depths – or the clouds (although that’s far more enjoyable!). You’re just one of us… not pretentious, but real! That’s why your blog entry made it to another site. I’m so glad to have YOU back – that’s what you do best and why this site is so special
