I have spent a great deal of time contemplating this - but I feel it is best if I step down from hosting. It has been wonderful hosting the board again & I very much love this board & it's members. I have not been as active as I feel the board deserves & I am thinking perhaps someone else may be ready to step in & take a turn at hosting. I am not "taking a break" from the board or anything - I will still be here, just not as a host. I really appreciate all of the support & love you all have shown me while hosting & I am certain whoever steps up next will be better able to show the kind of enthusiasm this board needs. Thank you all for the love & support & like I said, I will still be here!

I'm glad to hear you're not completely leaving me. I do understand your reasoning. I loved the short time we were co-hosts together.

Oh Beckie...you have been such an amazing support for me. You were a wonderful host and I know you aren't going anywhere so I won't say I will miss you! I have been a host before and stepped down for the same reasons. You have done so much for this board and all your hard work is very much appreciated.

I, too, am glad that you're not leaving. You are probably the biggest reason that I am on JM. I had lurked and posted a few tims, but you went after me and made sure that I was doing alright. You don't know how much that meant to me during difficult times. Thank you!
((((hugs))))))

I'm sorry to hear that you're stepping down Beckie, but I know how it is when you just dont' feel like you're doing as much as everyone needs.

HUGS

I understand if you need to step down and I too am glad you are not leaving. Thank you so much for all your words of encouragement over the past year. I can't tell you how many times I have found relief from reading your words. One of the things I found so touching about you was all the work you would put into digging up your old posts to make those ladies feel better who were going through something similar. It really shows what a loving and caring person you are. Thank you for being such a wonderful host. You have truly made this rocky road more smooth.

Love,
Nicole

Beckie, you have been a wonderful host and friend to many on this board. And I know you'll continue to be that same person for all of us here and plus we will hunt you down if you go MIA. We love you and I know everyone (myself included) appreciates all the support you've given and continue to give.

You are all too sweet. It has really been such a source of inspiration to be able to host here. There are literally TONS of boards on this site all serving a particular need. Even though I have been a member at other boards and I enjoy them, I have to say (and I am probably biased) that this seems like one of the MOST needed boards on this site - even if it isn't the one with the largest membership nor the one that is the busiest (not by far). It is those moments when you feel the most alone or the weakest - that you turn to what you need instead of what is entertaining or interesting - and for me, that has always been this board, as I know it has for many others. As I said - I am certain that not only is this the right thing for ME right now, I think it is also a positive move for the board, as it opens up that slot for someone else to step in & offer their own style of hosting & perhaps even give a boost to our membership numbers. I also think that because hosting has been such a positive thing for me that it is important for others to also have that opportunity.

I do have to say though that all of your warm thoughts & really great comments have made my day & you all have meant the absolute world to me while we traveled this crappy road together. I just don't know where I would be emotionally today without you! I can promise you it wouldn't where I am - that's for sure. When my load was too heavy - you were there for me, when no one understood - you always did & when I felt judged by everyone for the way I was coping (or not coping) I felt embraced & accepted & for that I will be eternally grateful.

But again - enough mushiness. I am not saying good-bye - just good-bye to hosting. So I also want to encourage anyone who may be interested to apply. This is such a great board to host & it gives you 100 times back what you put into it!
