yes, this is much more thoughtful, much less mindless.
what happens to me is for my benefit. and i have benefited greatly from that spider bite. and the heart attack. and all that has come my way.
i am truly sorry you thought i was denigrating your story. not at all. i was passing over it as irrelevant to what i was talking about but i do appreciate your efforts and actually perceive love coming from you. not that im here to make note of that but so you know that i know kind of thing.
thanks for a wonderful post.
now, i am gonna start a new thread about something wil wheaton said. this issue still could use some addressing.
