You've come a LONG way...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Hayley, you have certainly evolved. You continue to grow as a person. None of us are perfect. We all have more to learn. We all wish we could handle every situation with grace and integrity, but it is in how we act after we've made a mistake that shows who we really are. Admitting mistakes and then in some way making amends for those mistakes shows your true character. I tip my hat to you, Hayley.

On another unrelated matter, I would just like to point out that a programming glitch that seems to be taking forever to be rectified prevents my regular visitors from being automatically notified of any new contributions, including your post above, when the contributor does not opt in to be notified at the time of submitting. In other words, if you want your posts to get more exposure, you must opt to be notified on the Thank You page that you are taken to immediately after you submit your post. So for future posts, you might want to consider one of the notification options on the Thank You page. No pressure, Hayley, just a suggestion.
