From Canada's Eastern Shore: Thank you Darlene!

by Scott
(Nova Scotia, Canada)

I'm guessing you're really busy maintaining this site. I see you've worked all through the Xmas holidays to post our stories. I can't really thank you enough for the work you are doing. We can't thank you enough! I would give you a hug. You've done so much for me, I'm in tears writing this. I can't help thinking that you can't do this forever. It must be a full time job. I can't imagine this coming to an end. A place for people to tell their secrets. The most embarrassing things. All in public, private. Thank you Darlene for listening. I don't know if you realize just how useful this site is. A Lot of people realize it's a safe place. It's a warm place. Thank you...thank you. I told some of the most embarrassingly personal things to many strangers. Yet it has helped me. It has given me a voice. I feel empowered with this new voice. I've been taking this new voice with me lately. I think I'll use this new voice into the new year...I don't know what else to say...THANK YOU!!

Feel free to post this, or keep it as a personal thank you. It's yours, you deserve it...YOU'VE EARNED IT!!!
