Just wanted to say goodbye! - Page 2

post #31 of 57
Please feel the warmth and love flooding from everyone here. You will be missed.

My deepest apologies if I have ever said anything to upset or anger you.

Bundylee, this is the first I had heard of this...I just now read this thread. I am sorry to hear you are leaving us. I didn't know about the PM's you were getting...I am so sorry to hear about this!!!

If you decide to stay, you are welcome here, always. I certainly hope I have never said or done anything that has offended you.

If you ever want to contact me, just PM me and I will send you my e-mail addy. We will miss you.

Please don't leave!!!!!!! Your an important part of this forum and you shouldn't let a few bad apples spoil your fun. If someone's threating you or being rude you should let someone know so they can kick them off! Opinions are opinions anyway. I know your stressed and you don't feel good. There are a lot of people here who love you and some who really need and value your expirience and advice. It would be such a shame if you leave!

I don't know what to say!

This has overwhelmed me to the point of me sitting here in tears, I just wish I could hug you all and tell you all how much this has touched me! I feel so honoured to be called your friend.
Each and everyone of you have touched me in so many ways since I have joined this site! I have laughed with you, cried with you, hoped and sent my thoughts of healing to you and received so much more in return. I owe you all such a huge debt of gratitude! You have all made me feel special in a time in my life where I felt invisible and small. A time of despair and depression. A time of loss and confusion. You have been there for me more than the friends I have here in my physical surrounds! I have felt closer to you all than I have to any one in a long time.
You are in my thoughts first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I looked forward to hearing your stories, what had happened in your day, your furbabies and their antics. Felt sorrow for your losses and joy at your new arrivals.
I felt so proud when I showed off my babies to you all and you all said such nice things! I was and am still a proud crazy cat woman that took to many photos LOL!
You have all made me think, feel and share things I never dreamed I would! I have wanted to invite you all into my life and my home. I gained such strength from you all. I started to feel that life was worth living! I will stay in touch if that’s okay.
I'll be around from time to time. I don't want to lose something so precious that I never thought I would find in the first place. I am blessed and touched by the angels in you all!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It aches with the pure joy I feel knowing you are all there! I wish you all the happiness, love, health and security in the world because you all deserve the best! I don’t want to lose all this for the few episodes and people that have upset me. I will remain loyal and true as I always have. If I say something that someone may not like then I am sorry, if I do something that someone may not like then for that I am also sorry. But I cannot be false or fake to please everybody. So I will post from time to time and for those of you that know me well you will not take offence or insult, for those of you that do I cannot change just for you!

Thank you again and I am sorry for the long ramble. I found some more poems that explain how I feel so much better than I can write.

With all the love, hugs and kisses in the world to you all.


People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldly fame,
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we're understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
When we "lock up our hearts" and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life's completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with our loved ones
and friends.
-Helen Steiner Rice

It is by chance we met, by choice we became friends... Friendship is a strange thing....we find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives...things we don't even share with our families who raised us...But what is a friend? A confidant? A lover? A fellow email junkie? A shoulder to cry on? An ear to listen? A heart to feel?... A friend is all these things...and more. No matter where we met, .... I call you friend. A word so small...yet so large in feeling...a word filled with emotion.

It is true great things come in small packages. Once the package of friendship has been opened, it can never be closed... it is a constant book always written...waiting to be read... and enjoyed. We may have our disagreements...we may argue... we may concern one another...friendship is a unique bond that lasts through it all....
A part of me is put into my friends...some it is my humour... some it is my listening ear... some it is real life experiences... some it is my romanticism...but with all, it is friendship.

Friendships forged are a construct stronger than steel built as a foundation....necessary for life... and necessary for love. Friends...you and me... you brought another friend….. and then there were 3... we started our group... Our circle of friends... and like that circle... there is no beginning or end...

Leslie, I'm so glad you can feel all of the love pouring out to you on this thread.

So does this mean we can expect another update to Amy's Babies? I'd love seeing the little stinkers some more.

Ah Heidi you are so naughty, you know I have a huge back log of photos, I can just imagine all the trouble I can get into if I start posting them all LOL! I will get around to updating the kitten pics though as it is almost time for them to go. Also Tatyana has been up to all sorts of tricks, I must say it has been very challenging trying to photograph her aerial antics :-)
post #37 of 57
I, for one,am glad that you're sticking around. As for kitty pics: bring 'em on!
post #38 of 57
Leslie, first of all.....your post brought tears to my eyes! Geesh, Thanks! And I have a meeting in less than 1/2 hour.

I look forward to reading your posts and viewing your pics.

Glad you will be around from time to time. I think it'll be more often than you expect. We won't let you stay in hiding too long.

post #39 of 57
Bundy, I'm glad we'll still be seeing some posts from you occasionally. And I agree with Cindy, Ghys and Heidi about the pictures.

I should have said this earlier, but I hope I'm not one of those who said or did something to get you so upset.
post #40 of 57
And now we're DEMANDING things from you! Gheesh - we're so weird!

I want more Piglet.

...you know... all of this set me to thinking. (And feeling all warm and fuzzy and teary inside). Think of all the wonderful people out there that we haven't become friends with - because we'd never share stuff like this with someone we're sitting next to on the bus, or standing next to on the elevator, or standing next to in a department store.... Makes me appreciate the "safe" space here.

I'm sorry it wasn't a "safe" space for you for a while there, Leslie. I hope it becomes so for you again. You bring so much fun into our lives - it just doesn't seem fair, somehow, that we let you down.

But it's like I always remind those who vent - we needn't apologize to each other if we remember that we're just opening up our hearts to each other, and you just never know what's going to come out. The beautiful thing about this site is that it seems that so often our worst fears and feelings are accepted with love.

post #41 of 57
Yay!!!! I'm so happy you're not leaving, Bundy.

Now where are those kitten pictures? :tounge2:
post #42 of 57
So glad to hear you're not leaving altogether!! Now, can we pleeeeeeeease have more kitten pix?
post #43 of 57
I am very glad to hear that we will all be seeing your posts and pictures in the future.
post #44 of 57
Glad to see ya changed your mind! I'd hate to loose such a great person from the site!
post #45 of 57
Majority rules: you HAVE to stay!
post #46 of 57
YEAH - good to see you changed your mind - I also had to get it into my head that you can't please all the people all the time. I guess for some of us it's harder to deal with than for others, BUT - you made the right decision and I am soooooooooooooooooooo glad you decided to hang around!
post #47 of 57

You know we all love you here. Great decision mate! Post often and say exactly what you think. All we can do is disagree with you. After all that's what mature adults do - they discuss and argue. The world would be a very boring place if we all thought the same way.

I think if people take personally the fact that someone's opinion is different to theirs then they need to learn the art of debate, surely that is what a forum is all about, somewhere to discuss and exchange opinions?
post #48 of 57
Bundy, So glad you're staying! And glad that I read your post over my lunch break, it made me a little weepy. As others have said, many of us appreciate you and what you have to say. Those that don't need to lighten up a little.

As Laurie so eloquently put it, the greatness of this forum is the ability to share our thoughts in a way we might not otherwise, without other people making judgments. Hopefully that will continue.
post #49 of 57
Bundy...sorry I am just cathing up with this now! I was SO upset to hear that you would be leaving us...and especially the reason!

If someone doesn't like what you have to say, then they don't have to sit and read your posts do they? I can't believe that certain people here have upset you SO much that you were willing to give up something you obviously love, and means so much to you. That just infuriates me!

I was glad to discover as I read through the thread that you reconsidered and decided to stay. Please don't ever let the mindless drivel of those who have nothing more important to say than hurtful things to someone ever make you feel this way. Someone like you who gives us all so much laughter, joy, and PICTURES! I know that people can be cruel, but there are SO of us here who would miss you terribly if you went away!

I certainly hope that this type of behavior does not continue for your sake. And if it does, please notify the MODS and let them take care of the situation.

Glad you're staying!

Oh Lordy.....

You better stay after all this!!!!
post #51 of 57

I may not know you that well at all, and I haven't even read all of this thread...darned work calls...but all I have to say is

Ok, so then I read on a bit and saw that you'd check in sometimes and now I have to change my previous wail of distress to...
OH MY GOD, THANK GOD YOU ARE STICKING AROUND !!!!!!! How would we all deal with your leaving permanently...life is bad enough already...like it has been said YOU HAVE TO STAY...WE LOVE YOU !!!

Peace, Love, and Happiness, Always

Oh Lordy Lordy!!!!!!!!

You guys are just too much LMAO!!!!

I am flattered and very honoured and just want to walk around saying things like awwww shucks and gee whiz and wowser all the time!!

You have all made me very embarrassed to say the least!!! Just when I though I had managed to sneak away and BAM!!!!!! you guys have dragged me kicking and screaming right back again :tounge2:

Thanks everyone again! I meant what I said in my thank you post! You have all been amazingly kind and I feel very loved! I don't know if you guys will be all that happy as my life is a complete mess at the moment!Yikes!!! :tounge2: But thank you and I will be posting and giving you all pics (thanks Louise for sating them for the moment) from time to time! Just need to sort things out once in a while!

Love you all

post #53 of 57
No problem mate. You rest up and have a break as long as you need to. Get yourself better ok!
I'm glad to help out with giving everyone a cute kitten fix so I don't mind posting pics on your behalf.
You will see in the kitten picture thread that demand has now exceeded supply though...LOL
If you have some more pics then drop them in an email to me and I'll happily share them with everyone for you

Leslie dear heart,
I got your e-mail and have responded to it. I haven't been on the forum for a few days so just got to read your original post and all the responding ones. I think just for the public record here I'm going to say this, I don't know who has been sending you nasty e-mails or whatever but girl you tell'em to shove their opinions, remarks, etc. where the sun don't shine and then ignore'em. We who love your posts, pictures and you are the only ones who count. These other kind of people cannot be animal people. People who LOVE their furchildren do not have narrow minded, spiteful, nasty, selfish natures. (Hey Les, do you think I insulted'em.) No self respecting furchild would have anything to do with someone like that. For you who have hurt Leslie when she's down, get a life. Try some volunteering for the homeless both human and animal. Take a good look at your own life before you judge her and hers. And doesn't it say somewhere "judge not lest you be judged". We need to love each other people! There can never be too much love in the world. There's a saying Leslie that fits this perfectly. "This is a case of mind over matter. You don't mind because THEY don't matter".
Blessed Be sweetling.
Hugs, Dee
Mom to Jessie, Nikkie, Luckie, Lady, Sammy & Sassy Bear

Well I don't know you (yet I hope) but as you can see from my post count I'm not new. I'm not a lurker, I left...and now I'm back. This place is too good to leave. Sorry if some things got heated, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater LOL. Stick around, and walk away from the computer if it ticks you off!
post #56 of 57
Hehe, Bundy told you we'd drag you back

I'm so happy you're staying :afrorainb :angel4: :girly1: :bat :girly2:

Sorry I got carried away with the smilies.
