On a Saturday, 7 January 2012 Jood started our first chat thread (womens chat ). It has become a safe place and a home away from home for a lot of folks, a place to chat about life and everything. That thread has now reached it's limit of 1000 pages, and therefore we are moving to this new thread. I was asked to start the new thread and also say something about Jood. Those that got to know her, loved her. This thread is for you, my dearly missed friend!

At the beginning of March 2013 a wonderful person passed away. Jood was the heart of Women's Forum, a kind and beautiful soul that is still missed by many. If you wish to read more, please go to Memories Of Jood (1966 - 2013). I miss my conversations with her, both when playing games at Yucata or via e-mails. I miss her positive attitude in the middle of all, she never lost it. I miss her curiousness and innocence about life. I miss growing as a human being with her, through our conversations. I miss her.

was a person who truly appreciated life's little things. She could find joy in the tiniest thing we usually tend to overlook in our busy every day life. She was ill for quite some time yet she managed to always be positive, curious and brought many women together. Many of us had truly lovely conversations with her and formed firm friendship with her. Often times she was like the sun to this forum, which puts a smile on my face when I think about how she put her name down is as Jood Shine. And shine she did, in so many levels.

Well, fiddle, I was mid-reply when the old thread locked. Out with the old, in with the new...

I was about to say re: museum walking that it's all the craning, to see over or around the folks who press their noses to the glass. With apologies to the short-sighted or museo-enthusiastic, of course.

Vive la new thread!

Very good preamble for the new thread, Jonna. It made me cry a bit.
I'm more a lurker than a chatter, but I say welcome to everyone!

To me, the issue with museum walking is that I walk much, much slower and stop and stand still much longer. It's not my normal gait, so different muscles are being used and/or normal muscles are being differently. My legs and feet almost always hurt after a museum trip.

What a beautiful opening and tribute to Jood! What a wonderful person she must have been and to stay so positive and to just shine with personality! I wish I could have met her, but will say a prayer for her and know she is in a beautiful place!

I am happy I saw this thread and look forward to what everybody has to say!

Hello from Texas! May today be the start of a wonderful week!

P.S. I had to add, I feel so naked...I don't have an avatar or anything yet! YIKES! lmbo

Luckily there weren't that many people around this time, as it was Monday, I think it was exactly what Rose described: walking slowly and standing still a lot

Sorry for your loss, Ilse. Pets are family too and their loss is deeply felt as well.
