    Hello there. :)

    Just a note to mention there is a slight problem with all the images in that they have been enlarged
    in error when uploaded into the thread resulting in some of them looking pretty awful.:rolleyes: :(

    I'm trying to resolve the issue.


    Meantime, thank you for popping in to Inspirations.

    Have a pleasant day.
    willie.


    Hi,
    I'm so grateful for all the help everyone freely offers in the various threads, and, as I'm unable to contibute as you seasoned members do, I'd like to at least, offer something to the forum. So, hopefully, without coming across as being presumptuous, I'd like to offer some inspiration images and text.
    I've made quite a few, here's the first by way of example.
    Please do let me know if you have any objections.

    This was a very large image, so I've had to down-size it.
    I hope you find the text clear enough.

    btw, it's not me in the image. :)

    Re:Inspiration

    Thank you for your comments Carol ; Anna; Neicy0412. you are very kind.

    This isn't the image I intended to upload as I've just noticed the default size for the forum is smaller than my images.
    So I'll make up new slightly smaller images instead of resizing them.

    This was the image I intended to post yesterday, but it was too large.
    I was going to make up a new one, then I thought of splitting my
    original one.
    Here it is, hope it looks ok.

    Re: Inspiration

    Again I've split the image in three section as it's so large.
    Strange thing, the centre section is slightly narrower, yet my
    original image is perfect. Strange indeed. :shock:
    What's even stranger is that I use firefox and as you can see (if you also
    use Firefox) there's a small gap between the three sections of the image,
    but when I checked with Internet Explorer, it doesn't show the gap between
    the three sections at all.
    But it does show the slightly narrower centre section???

    Has Jasper the friendly neighbourhood ghost been floating about in the forum lately???

    Hi weewillie.

    I have changed the title heading as you asked. :thumbup:

    No problemo - it is inkeeping with the contents you have so generously
    and thoughtfully provided for all forum members to enjoy and reflect upon.

    Thank you Anna, it will be my pleasure to contribute as much as I can.
    Diabetes UK is such an excellent forum to be involved in, even to a minor extent, such as I'm doing.

    I've still to get used to the image sizes the forum will allow. The one above, though reduced
    in size, has effected the text and overall clarity, is still a tad too large.
    (you can see the cut-off point, which I didn't do) :D

    Though I've excellent image resizers, they could be better, so I'll probably redo
    the images as I mentioned earlier, or, where acceptable, split them.

    Thank you again
    william

    This is soooo true - spiritually powerful yes - lifes lessons can teach us richly with
    the real value of things ...
    Thanks WeeWillie for giving me a 'tap' to remember these things!

    This is a lovely thread and has cheered me, as I have had some black times lately. Thank you :)

    I would like to leave these:-

    Never look down on anyone, unless you're helping them up.

    I wish you all the colours of the rainbow.........................except blue.

    In life, where we're going doesn't matter, its what happens along the way that counts.

    What lies behind us and what lies before us, are nothing compared to what lies within us,

    With best wishes RRB
