Everyone, I'm a newbie to PT but Visiting the Purse Forum has been a good experience so far. I really love reading the posts and chatting aboud tbags, light, frothy topics. It's also good that people can come and talk about other things. So thanks. We are all really lucky to be able to connect in this way. But then I thought, "Well, we are really blessed. ? 1. Most of us have the resources to pay for our computer, internet connection., or some kind of access, either through work or school. 2. We have the money to buy really nice handbags, (retail or used, authetnic bags are not cheap!) 3. We still have freedom to have our little posts. (yes, I know, it's relative, but basically, we have more freedom than most. 4. Most of us are not going through some horrible disaster, or we would not be here at the present. There are, of course, those who weathered hurricane, flood, fire, and terrorist attack. So we're blessed. We survived and got up and were able to take an in interest in other things. So, when you're counting your handbags, don't forget to count your blessings. Celebrate life, for it's the greatest blessing of all.
