The Holiday Season

No matter what faith , creed, religion, background you have, there is always time to sit back a bit and reflect on what has happened the previous year.

For many of us, our worlds seemed to turn inside out, dreams were shattered, loved ones lost and the list goes on.

I am not a religious man, but I believe in the spirit and faith of mankind. People over the years have proven to rise above disasters and tragedy and come to the aid of one another.

Here on Spine-Health it is really not that different. We come here daily, log on, check for recent posts, see what someone else has to say, make a few posts, etc. But we really dont
know each other. Virtually we do. I've never met Liz or Sandi face to face, but to me they are two of the more compassionate and caring folks. They care about this site, they want to make sure
that everything is right. I have an old friend, tamtam, who hasn't been here in over 9 months. She was one of the first moderators I brought on board and we shared so much. We shared things
about each other that maybe others never knew, but it was special. For whatever reasons she has been absent, I only hope that nothing tragic has happened to her.

Long time members of Spine-Health can really understand this. Many of them have moved on. And that is good. Because that means that the problems they came to Spine-Health for in the first place have
been eliminated or reduced to a very manageable level. I love when I see long term members here move on. Cause that only means good things.

For the new members, it can be a little difficult in the beginning, understanding the navigation of these forums, knowing the rules, getting to know each other. But that all comes in time.

I am so happy to be part of this family. I was fortunate enough back in 2006+ to be asked to become one of the moderators here. Its a task I take very seriously. I can be tough on some, but hopefully
I can also help others with understanding.

This holiday season, no matter what your beliefs are, just try to reach out and help one person, If each of us does this, then in turn more and more people will be helped.

I always thank the owners of this site for having the trust and confidence in me, and I always hope that I have the same from all of you.
