Hi Everyone:

Can we form a virtual chain of hope to encircle Jeannie and her best friend today?

Someone take my left and and someone take my right hand, and we can form a protective circle that reaches all the way around the world.

And if anyone else needs an extra special boost today, please feel free to step inside.

We are here for you!!

Extra special warm and hopeful hugs,

Janet

You two just brought me up in goosebumps, but warmed my heart and eased the ache. I'm joining the Chain and am on your left Janet. My thoughts are with all those in need.

Let me slip into this chain, too. Now we have two hemispheres covered (and very long arms). Sending lots of warmth to all who can feel it.
Warm wishes,
Jefa

I'm grabbing onto Peggy's hand. We're both wearing double thick wool mittens. Who's going to take my other hand?

Oh, this so very heartwarming and special.

I've got on my pink mohair mittens, Shelley...I've got your hand, if someone else hasn't gotten there, yet!

May we ALL feel warm and fuzzy as we gather together...

What an incredibly wonderful circle of friends we are! Saying thanks just doesn't seem like enough. I'm dancing around the circle handing each one of you a perfect white rose.

Hello everyone!

I'm somewhere in the middle (Midwest) to the right of Susie wearing my extra thick warm mittens. Let's keep the chain of hope going.,

It's working, I can feel the warmth and gentle hugs going around. Great idea Janet!

Virtual hugs,
Razz

You guys are great ....jaxsx

Takes Jaxs' hand and pulls her warmly into the fold... though she could have jumped in any place she wished, because there is no beginning and never ending in this circle of love and friendship.

Warm hugs all around,
Penny
