Actually, I posted the reply in the Greetings / Introduction forum before I read you post in the EC forum. I had no idea that the abuse had been so extensive and mean. If I had read the post in EC first, I would have changed the wording in my post, I could never be glad they treated you the way they did, even if it did play a part in molding you into the truely wonderful person you are now.
When your journey here, in this life, has ended and you have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, you will find a huge gathering waiting for you to arrive. Waiting for you, so that the Party can begin, so that your Party can begin. There is always a huge Party in the Heaven when an angel returns home.
Before you return home, while you are still here in this world, please take care of yourself and your immediate family.
