Thanks to the Long-Term
« on: May 02, 2008, 05:42:20 PM »
As you all know today is my birthday and as you might suspect I get a bit introspective and maybe even a bit sad. I know I don't say it enough but I want to thank all the Long-Term Survivors I've come to know and grown to love over the past few years. The humor and understanding you share with me on a daily basis can never be measured and I hope to meet each and every one of you as we continue on our journey.

I noticed in another forum someone asked if you could still be gorgeous and be positive. Kid need not look any further than this forum to find his answer.

Love from me and licks from Sam or vice versa if you prefer.

Hi Hal, I don't class myself Long Term but just wanted to say:

There are days when I have read your posts, opend up your videos, especially your videos,  and thought "OMG I can't believe he said that/posted that..but I have to tell you for the most part they have all made me laugh, brought back some good memories and got my morning off to a good start..so for that I would like to say..thank you for being here, I love your sense of humor and I hope you continue to show it...the cold winter weather is stating to settle in here in my little part of the world and I will be needing something to laugh about on these cold miserable mornigs... ;)

Again, Happy Birthday, I hope you had a great one.

Hugs
Jan :-*

Hope you had a great birthday Hal...Wishing you many more happy and healty ones to follow.....

I believe having a great sense of humor is the best thing to have... ;D

When I look for someone who I want to be with, this person has got to have a sense of humor, if not..Poof there gone..

So many serious people out there who forgot what is is to laugh, and just look at them, they look worse than us...now thats humor.. :P
Live Love Laugh and dance like no ones watching.
Laughter is the best medicine, so try to have a laugh everyday..Even if your not feeling your best, think about something that was funny at one time in your life and work with it..   :o)
