    Post Helping Hands List

    This thread is where anyone can select an individual to talk to at their will. Each name will be linked and beside each name we will eventually have a symbol for gender. The names of the members available will eventually be in blue to make them easier to see if they are online. To sign up, please copy and paste the below list and then post it onto this thread. It will then (eventually) be linked. You must refresh this at the start of each month or send me a PM to show that you are still able to help, and I'll keep your name and info refreshed. Also, the availability point is not needed to be altered whenever you are on or off line but rather is a means of letting people know if you can currently help when you are online. If you are too busy are away, or cannot help for another reason, please change your availability status. Thanks

    Any other relevant comments: After going through that list I see I have either delt with most of it personally or have talked with others who have. I am ok with discussing any of it. I do not sign into MW every 15 minutes but I am online for large chunks of the day. I do not sleep really well and I am up for about 10 minutes every two hours at night. I may not be much but I am always willing to try and if I don't have the answers I have enough brains to help find someone who does. If you get one of my away messages and you most likely will give me a few minutes to respond I check whenever I hear one of them chirp. I might be downstairs or doing something else but the odds are that I will be happy to stop what I am doing to help you.
    Yes people are talking about you behind your back. That is where all the laughter is coming from.
    Dear Lord, I pray for:
    Wisdom, To understand a man Love, To forgive him and Patience, For his moods Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength
    I'll just beat him to death. Amen!

    THANKS MENOLLY

    Watch your thoughts, they become WORDS.
    Watch your words, they become ACTIONS
    Watch your actions, they become HABITS
    Watch your habits, they become CHARACTER
    Watch your character, for it becomes YOUR DESTINY
    Don't follow the crowd. They may get you lost.
