    Great idea Dreama *hugs*

    It is amazing-I always try to compliment when I see think someone deserves to be complimented because it feels wonderful! Thank you, and you are certainly a beauty yourself!

    I'm thankful that I am strong enough to make it through absolutely anything that comes my way. I am thankful that I have the self-control to make rational decisions regardless of what my emotions may be telling me. In a bizarre kind of way, I'm thankful that I grew up with a schizophrenic parent because it gave me the "tooling" to protect myself when necessary.
