    Hi Happyray

    Good to see you have enjoyed the Day Centre, and good to see you are getting over 'being under the weather'.

    You are sooooo right, we get so bogged down with the bad times and tears, sometimes we lose sight that there can still be laughter. Thank you for reminding us.

    Love
    Cate

    Dear Happyray,
    So glad you have enjoyed day care.

    I know what you mean about it takes you back to school! I find that groups of adults who are given a chance to do some of the things they once did at school, usually LOVE the experience!! Although we may think we are "too grown up" for some activities sometimes, the truth is we are never too old to have fun and be creative.

    I hope life continues to give you happy days. It is very encouraging to hear from someone as positive as you are. Please post again soon.
