      Good quote.  Happy Monday!

  2. A little note of encouragement.  Happy Thursday, everybody!  :throb:


  3. A little Friday message to those of you who may need to hear this:



    1. Free2Fly


      I guess I needed to hear that I guess... I don't know.

      safe hugs :hug: if ok?

  4. Came across this gem on my newsfeed on social media and wanted to share with everyone here.  It is imperative to be compassionate to yourself in times of difficulty. Self-care is a great way to do that to help yourself heal. It is giving yourself permission to pause, to love yourself, to be kind to yourself and remember that you are just human and you are doing your best.  :throb:   Sending you all love and safe hugs!!

      Thank you Cap. I forget all the time about self care.

    2. Iheartcupcakes


      This is excellent. Bathing in the ocean is definitely cleansing and spiritual for me. I make time for this every time I go home. 


    3. Hawkgirl


      Thank you Cap for this.  I didn’t realize self care was quite so multifaceted.

  5. For those of you who are also having mixed feelings seeing the Mother's Day posts on social media: I'm with you.  Wishing you a happy day if you're celebrating and holding your hand if you're not.  :throb:

      Thank you.  It is hard for me to see people post about relationships with their mothers on facebook when I have never had a good relationship with my mom.  

    2. heartofamethyst


      Thank you so much for posting this. I have such mixed feelings about this day. One because I do not have a great relationship with my mom and two because due to my abuse I may never have kids. 

    3. Field8


      Thank you Cap

  6. Salem is here to say hello.  He is modeling one of my hand-made SAAM bands - yes, I did take it off after this picture was taken as it's not a 'regulation' collar, but here's our boy's contribution to the observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month!  Teal is a nice color on him, isn't it?

      Will pocket ride

    3. Capulet


      Thank you, everyone.  It was a tough night without having to get up and check on him to make sure he's had some water/food and had gone to the bathroom, etc, something I've been doing relentlessly for the last month.  

      I miss him SO much, already.  

      Thanking you all for your love and support. :throb:

  16. Our boy has stopped eating and has showed that he is unable to continue the fight.  He has been a true warrior and has hung on for a month following losing function of his hind legs - and someone wise did say that extra time he gave us was truly a gift.  But - he's now telling us he is exhausted and we've had to make the most heartbreaking decision we've ever thought possible - our sweet Dexter will be making his way over the Rainbow Bridge tomorrow.  I am absolutely devastated.  Pocket riders appreciated for the next 24 hours as we prepare to say goodbye to the most lovable and faithful fur-baby we've ever had.

      I talked to you elsewhere but wanted to also reply here. You are so loved and supported. I am so sorry, dear friend.

  17. Continued good vibes needed, please, for our cat, who has lost all function of his hind legs and is unable to walk.  Still, he is a fighter and has been surprising us day after day with his strength and will to keep going.  Although his prognosis is not good, he is calling all the shots, and he's not finished, yet.  He is looking especially handsome today, so both he and his Mama are accepting hugs and positivity!  :throb:  


  18. How is everyone doing, today?  Sending out hugs to anyone who needs.  Just because!  :hug:

    1. EmptyInside


      Totally late to the party (as usual!) but I would greatly appreciate a hug. In return I can hug you back :hug:

    2. Free2Fly


      Safe hugs :hug: if ok everyone?

    3. Capulet


      @snmls, @Free2Fly, @EmptyInside -

      I've an unlimited supply of hugs - it's amazing how much of a difference they can make for someone.  So - continuing to dish 'em out upon request - and yes, I'd LOVE some in return.  Thanks, all.  I'm so grateful for my AS family.

  19. Merry Christmas to you all - if this is a time that brings you joy - I wish you all of the blessings possible and hope your holiday was a truly wonderful one.  If this season is one of your struggles, I wish you peace and comfort - hang in there - it is almost behind us. :)  Either way, sending you all lots of love - no holiday required for that.  So grateful for all of you.  :throb:

  20. I wanted to take the time and opportunity to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving! Enjoy yourselves and your loved ones and remember to be thankful for every single one of our blessings no matter how big or small! :throb: 

    While I know some are excited for the upcoming holidays, others may not be feeling it.  For those of you who are struggling right now, please know that my heart and thoughts are with all of you and I am sending an infinite stream of love and support.  If you like, my PMs are open and I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a 'hi.' :)  Don't be shy!

    I, for one, am thankful for all of you and for this amazing community that I am both proud and honored to be a part of.

    Love and light,


    1. Dahliaa


      And a Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow!

      thank you. i hope this is an answer to my status even though i k now you wrote this for everyone. 

      hugs if ok and @free2fly hugs if ok

    3. Free2Fly


      Hugs are ok BLT :hug: thank u I appreciate them, having a crappy time right now.

    4. Capulet


      @LuthienTinuviel - hugs always welcome!  And I hope so, too...  

      It just seems that so many of us are struggling in so many different ways right now - this highly optimistic, yet powerful statement, I believe, is safe to hold onto as we all work at figuring out what's next for each of us.  :throb:  Hang in there, friend.

  24. It's pretty amazing how even after so much elapsed time, things STILL remain ingrained into you.  

    Blog forthcoming, soon as I can figure out how to best explain today's epiphany. :blink:

      I love it!!!! :)  It's amazing and VERY meaningful.  And I've a soft spot for purple.  It's my favorite color.

      Hope of Morning

      Mine too!    Not totally sure about the font. What do you think?

    4. Capulet


      Hmmm.  Personally, I like it.  But if you're not so sure about the font, you can always have the word written in different fonts and see if any of the others 'pop' better.  The butterfly though, you should definitely keep.  It's beautifully drawn!
