    Say thanks! - a place to recognise forum support

    Thu Sep 19, 2019 3:21 pm

    Is there someone you'd like to recognise for being a great support?

    This Saturday is World Gratitude Day. What better a time to show our gratitude for one another, for the unique support we have here. Our community is all about friendship - connecting and supporting one another in taking control of gambling. So much amazing support goes on all the time, it's nice to take a moment to say thanks. It may be that someone gave you some great advice, or the encouragement you really needed.

    Who would you like to thank today?

    I hate to sound like a knob but I believe I'm one of those that continually give thanks anyway. Gratitude really does ground us and gives us peace. Amen to all

    By the way, I thank the admin staff for setting this site up and everything that goes with it; the support and tools are pretty damn good for free, and you know what? The best things in life are free!! Think about it, where would we be without our magnificent brains, our bodies, our spirit, the air we breathe, our mobility, our magnificent senses ( all attributed to the brain) water, the association with families and friends ( if we are fortunate to have them). All free!!!

    @pamela it's so great to hear that your son has been able to give you that understanding, how awesome! Happy to hear that for you :)

    @Mona58 what a great post! I might tag those members in hopes they'll see it! @JinxyWolf, @DFP, @Springhope, @Jedi(hoping this is the one? can't find jeddy and I believe that's before my time!)

    Mona & @clearthatmind that's lovely of you both, I'll be sure to circulate to the team about your appreciation - it's our pleasure but we certainly weren't fishing for compliments for us!

    Clearthatmind I absolutely agree - it's great to continually give thanks. Sometimes it's nice to be able to give a big shout out though.

    Lovely forum-er's I'm a little late on this one unfortunately but yesterday was World Kindness Day and I wanted to recognise all the kindness shared in our community here.. people supporting one another each and everyday to bring a little more light into each other's lives. Truely a special thing!

    PS I found this photo on https://www.randomactsofkindness.org/ and found its tips for kindness too beautiful!
