While I certainly appreciate the kind sentiments, I have absolutely no idea why I should be congratulated for this auspicious event. I assure you, I didn't write those 200K posts…

It is you, the Members of Passions, that have written these 200K posts. Just as it is you, the Members, who have transformed these virtual walls into a home filled with warmth and love. Ergo, it is you who deserve the congratulations!

Alright!!!  Ron if it weren't for your ideas and wanting to share, and doing the hard work, we wouldn't be here today!
You've made a place for us that we could become family, a place of security, a feeling of home!

So thank you!

My heart-felt thanks for this place
that has surrounded me with open-arms
of friendship.

To be able to sit in your 'living room'
with such remarkably talented people is
a treasure to me.

From the bottom of my heart,
I thank you.

Way to go Ron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This is just the best, thanks so much for creating it! I wrote a poem about it about a week ago...thought I'd put it here as a little thank you!

Passions in Poetry

Passions, to me, is a great place to be.
When I found it I was alone,
But now it is my family.
A family that shares and is willing to listen,
A collection of poems that, like diamonds, glisten.

When I am here, I feel so warm,
This is the best place to shelter from life’s storms.
No one has laughed at my poor attempts at poetry,
Have you any idea  how much that means to me?
Passions is my second home, I hope that doesn’t sound lame,
It warms me within like a bright, glowing flame.

Ron, you are an angel, how did you create such a wonderful place...
Free from prejudice of colour, size. looks or race.
Every time I visit my heart starts to sing,
This haven truly has given my soul wings.

I have laughed, I have cried,  I have smiled, I have sighed.
About my feelings I have never had to lie.
Passions is a gift that fills me with delight,
From life’s burdens it gives me respite.

Passions, for me, has opened a door,
It has a special place in my heart for evermore.

I love you Passions!!! I love all you wonderful poets who have shared such beautiful poetry, I can never thank you all enough. Love to everybody
