Awwww! I'm so excited for you! I know you've wanted to be an old granny for a looooong time!  :grin:
Ten years ago, Pilgrim and I moved away from DC - a move that opened up a whole new world for us.  We were desperately trying to understand how to make our faith come alive - something we had no example of in our own lives.  Somewhere along the way, we found your site and everything changed.  You opened our eyes to a Catholic culture that is still alive and vibrant - something we had only dreamt of.  THANK YOU!

And congratulations on being a grandma!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yippie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Indeed, Vox, you also deserve a measure of thanks; Fisheaters has proven to be a valuable source for me when I discovered what the Traditional Mass was all about and what exactly happened in the post-VII era - and why the pre-VII era was a better thing.

FE has been for me an online place of comfort as I contend with the hammer-blows my marriage has recently received and as I prepare to deal with the teeth-grinding frustration of a religiously-mixed household. The prayers I've received from the good members here I know have helped me immensely in that as well helped me as I struggle to drag myself out of the spiritual ditch I ended up in as a result of those hammer-blows. If a few bucks a month can be helpful to FE, then a few bucks a month I will give - at least until I can give more and make more of a difference.

Our Lord said that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the Church. Every traditional Catholic is a tiny testament to that promise, and such as FE are living proof of our Lord's words. To Vox and to God I am very thankful for the spiritual resource FE has proven to be - and I know will continue to be :)
Thank you for everything you do for this site and forum, Vox. I often wonder where I'd be without FE. When I watch my wife play with our daughter I'm often reminded of how lucky I am to have found this place. Your time and effort (which I'm sure have often felt unrewarded) have literally changed my life. I can't thank you enough for that.

And I hope we're all here, in whatever strange way the Internet exists, in another ten years.

Thanks Vox. If you hadn't created FE... I'd still be lost. I appreciate your work on the site so much. And am glad to have met a few friends I would have never met otherwise. :)
Thanks for all you do, Vox, it's great to log on and have adult conversations through the day!
Great work on the website and forum.

God bless you.

Invite them to a big Chinese dinner. Give the two pre-prepared fortune cookies that read, "The person you will marry is in this room." Make sure to make a game of having guests read all the fortunes aloud :P.

When I had just been dating NOtard a short time we went out for Chinese food and I got a fortune cookie that said "you will marry your current relationship."  Obviously this method works.   :grin:

I've just nixed the donations and decided to go all-out and purchase a proper subscription. My way of thanking the Lord for the raise I recently got at work.

Hoping it helps!

Wow, you guys are making me feel really, REALLY good! Thank you!!!
