Letters to the Editor

A successful site is made by the interest and the strength of its members. From time to time I receive from our members letters that are worthy of sharing. Today's letter is from Brenda Savage and on this Thanksgiving Day I'd like to share it with you.

Thank you Brenda for so adeptly putting into words what is in my heart. And I believe in the hearts of all of us who have made the transition from DG to Cubits to All Things Plants.
I was a late comer to DG & I never knew Dave & Trish there. I wasn't in on the beginning of it & to this day I'm not even sure when exactly the Big Bad Wolf entered the picture. All I knew was that I had just settled in & become comfortable when suddenly my new friends were quite upset & posts were being deleted by the Big Bad Wolf before hardly anyone could see them & my friends were speaking in code -- none of which I understood, having no background of the roots to go on. Eventually I was wised up by those friends & transitioned to Cubits. And I will always be grateful to those friends for letting me know. How would I have ever found ATP otherwise?
Brenda, you moved me to tears. You expressed everything so perfectly.

And thank you Dave & Trish for tending your garden with such love.

Happy thanksgiving!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Ann, thank you. Who would've guessed how many great friendships would evolve from a gardening website? I'm happy that I'm getting to know you better!

Isn't it the truth? And I'm glad I'm getting to know you better too!

KUDOS on this wonderful tribute on Thanksgiving Day. I second all that you said and could not have done it better. I have made so many friends and they now feel like family and learned so much that I would otherwise never have known. I am sooooo thankful for Cubit and ATP and Dave & Trish and all of you.
