    Default A safe place to land-deep thoughts on the BBB community

    I think about this from time to time. Most of us have never met and may never meet...we are basically strangers yet when I come here to look for advice or to say I feel down in the dumps or that I had a great day I feel the love. From strangers. When someone says they will pray for me or my family I truly believe they will. Isn't that rare? Isn't that wonderful? We often go off searching for something (the perfect top to match someones new jeans for example) or photoshop a loved but imperfect picture that will be treasured for years to come...without asking for anything in return. It's beautiful. You guys are beautiful. So glad I found this safe place to land so many years ago.

    This is a lovely post and it does remind me how much this community means to me, too. I'm a relative newbie, but when I'm having a crappy day or just want to feel like I'm connecting with a "girlfriend" (since I so rarely see my IRL girlfriends due to juggling FT WOH and family life), I know I can come here and feel 10 times better.

    Thank you all!

    i totally agree. i wish that your title was different. i thought that you were referring to airline travel or something, and i almost didn't read. i'm sure that's shy you haven't had a million replies yet.

    i value what people say here above and beyond all. it's unbelievable!!! i am so happy to come here almost every night. i get bummed when i can't get to the computer.

    great post.

    I couldn't agree more. So true! I think that's why I keep coming back for so many years, even now that my children are so much older than most.

    What a beautiful post. This is such a valuable place for me. Where can you find so many smart and wonderful people ready to help at a moments notice.

    I completely agree. What's also neat (and weird) is that, when I have a question about medicines, discipline, sleep, food, etc, THIS is the place I come to first for the best advice. I used to find it very strange, that I valued strangers opinions so much, but now I feel like I *know* so many, I look forward to seeing the replies - it's like calling my friend, leaving her a message, and she calls me back with her advice. I've also read some really great debates on here that get me to think beyond my own perspective. I really appreciate and value you smart women!

    I love the BBB, too. It has helped me grow tremendously as a parent, and I have made the best of friends here. It really is a rare and special community.
