YLF turns seventeen today. I can scarcely believe it. Thank you for the tremendous support. You are what makes YLF a special social community by graciously sharing your wisdom in blog comments and forum posts. Your thoughtful, compassionate, amusing and insightful contributions enrich this community and allow me to grow as a person. A special shout-out to Fabbers who have supported YLF since year one. I am humbled by your loyalty.

A big thank you to Inge, who has been part of the YLF team for twelve years, and a Fabber for fifteen. Inge is one of the sweetest and most thoughtful people I know. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and a very dear friend. We chat many times a day, every day. It’s been years since we saw each other in person, and I miss her!

Thanks also to hubs Greg for his ongoing behind-the-scenes work. There would be no YLF without Greg, and I’m forever grateful.

Last but not least, a snuggly and playful thank you to Yorkies Sam and Jo. They are always close by, literally nestled on either side of me on the couch as I type away on my laptop. Their incredible, unconditional companionship is soothing, comforting, and should not be underestimated. Our first Yorkies Jasmine and Rosie, who were with us when we started YLF and fulfilled the same therapeutic role, are always in our hearts.
