I so agree.
I found this forum back on (if you can believe it, it says it under my picture) September 11th, 2011. I was not even a year out of high school (edit:
wow, I can't math. I was over a year out of highschool), drowning in depression, pressure, trying to be an adult, work and go to school and came close to running away from it all several times. I had just gone through the worst experience of my life involving sexual harassment and I don't really think I can express my gratitude well enough. I picked up my stitching again, as slow as I am, and found this amazingly wonderful forum full of all you lovely people who are so uplifting. I never see a single snarky, negative or bad word said about any members towards each other, and it was so impressive to me, to see a group of people of all ages on common ground being so supportive.
I was in such a hostile environment that my life only really started turning around not too much later in the following January when I started dating my now husband of 6 months. I married him 5 years to the day I moved in and while it's been a tough road, I can always count on seeing some amazing beauty, artistry and kind words from anyone here.
So everyone should be nominated!
