I'm thankful for CaliforniaPeggy
As I read DU today off and on while i cook a turkey dinner for the family, there are SOOOOOooo many things I am thankful for. But I wanted to say this in particular to DU:

I am thankful for CaliforniaPeggy. She is always one of the first to comment on a good or meaningful or truthful post with encouraging words and sentiment. People like CP are the kind who brighten your day when you least expect it.

Thank you, CaliforniaPeggy. I hope your Thanksgiving is as uplifting as you are yourself.

:yourock:

3. Omigod, my dear kag, you just took my breath away...
Thank you so much!

I'm embarrassed to say I don't recognize you, but I think that will change, like NOW!

I always try to be nice (I don't always succeed, though) because I know how it is to have to deal with unpleasant remarks.

There is already enough unpleasantness in our world...I like to help make things better.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

:hug:

6. No worries!
I don't post a lot. And when I do I'm usually talking about my kids. But I read a lot. And I always notice that you are one of the first to comment with encouragement and kindness on posts that inspire those sentiments. You have done it for me, and I'm sure for many, many other DUers. I truly do appreciate it, and I think everyone else does, too.

Take care.

35. Yes, she is a genuine and deep person.
When my dog died unexpectedly earlier this year, I wrote a GD post about it. Some person started to pick on me for being "mad at God," basically taking over my thread. And before I could even really react, CaliforniaPeggy came charging to the rescue. Not only did she get the poster put in his place by the admins, she pursuaded them to move my post back to GD for more exposure, after the admins had moved it to the Lounge.

She always seems to be there when people need her - I am very glad she is getting the recognition she so deeply deserves.

I, too, am thankful for CaliforniaPeggy.

40. I have always lurked and read more than posted, and I fully agree!
I have always seen CP say nothing but kind words, even to me the few times I have posted. I always read what she has to say because it is so likely to bring a smile to my face. We need more people in the world like her!

California Peggy is the best!

I am a former du "addict."

I say former as I was always online - could not stay away. What cured me was having no internet for a couple of years. But I am back with my smartphone!

But California Peggy is such a fine individual. I love it how she always replies to one personally, like you are
talking with a friend.
C-peg, as I like to call her I would definitel.y call a friend
