Thanks, Everyone

Thanks to all of you who posted comments in response to my resignation. I had given it careful thought, and had decided that it was the best thing alll round, but your responses (especially yours, Bulldyke), convinced me that I AM doing worthwhile work here. So after I take a couple of days to rest and recouperate (it's been a pretty emotional time for me...just ask Jon), I will be back again.

I love all of you, and I now realize that, although you can't hope to help every single person that comes through here, each of us is capable of doing a great deal of good just by sharing our own experience and support.

See you again in a few days.
