Dec 28, 2012 6:16 AM  The Hub
Good morning! I'm posting this in the hub because it's not exactly Disney related but in a way it is. You guys probably wonder what the heck is our deal… why do we do these RAKs and go overboard the way we do. Well, I don't know how it happened but somehow we've gotten so attached to this MW Florida family through our love of WDW. Here we are, living in SoCal where we go to Disneyland regularly, but it's on this side of MW that we have made a connection with all of you. Probably because on the DL side there are just so many MWers. It's great there too, but there's only a few we've had the same connection with. Believe it or not, we feel we know all of you. When we're out and about at DL and we see all the cute pins and stuff, we buy extras to share. We are not rich and clearly not too good at saving, but we are fortunate to be able to go to DL as much as we do. We know how much all of you love Disney but live so far away or can't visit for various circumstances. This is our way of sharing the magic. We are not trying to buy anyone's friendship, nor do we expect anything in return other than seeing you happy on the other end. And in your comments and photos, we've been paid in spades! Believe it or not, this has been a tough year for us, and it may have been for some of you too. This place with all of you makes us happy. So, we'll be here for a while. I hope that's ok with you. That being said - jacdanfan is working hard to get the rest of the RAKS in the mail, so they're still coming! So with this, I'll sign off for now. I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend!

πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠcounting down to the new yearπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰. Here's to a better one for all of usπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ - mmddgp  949.4 #7 8:55AM

Nancy, I think you and Gary (and everyone else) are true friends and I do appreciate MWFL for this reason. It's a different atmosphere and easier to get to know people. Thank you for such a nice post! - ally  509.0 #17 12:37PM

aww, this entire post made me smile. I can relate to so many of the things you said. I feel a true connection with SO many people here. I originally came to MW to ask a few questions, and ended up finding true friendships that I cannot be thankful enough for! This place has gotten me through many a bad day, and brought me out smiling. That in itself is a blessing. I truly LOVE and CHERISH all of you on MW, and feel so blessed to have found such a place. THANK YOU for all you have done to make this such a special place for SO many of us!! - ncjal  288.4 #28 6:24AM

Thank you so much for this post!! I feel the same way about our little family here. I am so glad you guys are here, and Henry and Angelito, and all the other DL MWers. I have never been to DL, but it feels like I have from everything that is shared here and I wouldn't want it any other way!! I love Disney, east or west, it's all the same to me!! Love you guys and appreciate all the things you do for us here so very much!! - mrsincredible  1190.2 #5 7:11AM
Nancy you and your family are truly wonderful people, in today's world this isn't so easy to find. I know every MWer, even though I've only met 2 of you :) and felt honored and lucky to be able to do that. Every once in a while I think to myself 'I spend too much time on MW, I've got chores to do, etc.' Then it only takes about a second or two for me to say 'Oh MY this is my extended family, what would I do without them?' And for those of you that are wondering, YES I do talk to myself from time to time! LOL! Thanks Nancy again for all you and your family do for all of us your thoughtfulness has touched all our lives! XOXO to all of my MW family!! - DizneyGirl  937.9 #8 7:48AM
It's ok Melissa I talk to myself all the time ;) - Disneymom36  62.4 #96 6:24PM
Thank you so much, you actually brought tears to my eyes. I too feel such a connection and friendship with everyone her on Mousewait. I talk at work about all my friends as if I have spent time and know you all personally. Thank you for sharing your love for Disney and our Mousewait family. - MagicalFamily  65.6 #91 8:13AM
I think the two of you along with the rest of my MW Family are awesome !!! There is so much kindness on here from people I've never meet its just warms my heart !!!! In the world today it's good to know there are some good people out there . I think of ALL of you as family !!!!!! - skcanfield  563.8 #15 8:13AM
Oh my goodness, this is wonderful and so are all of you! Right now I feel like I'm standing in hallmark trying to find the perfect card and your eyes well up with tears and and a smile forms and you feel warm, you know you found the perfect card to relay exactly how you feel, like it was written just for you! That's how I feel right now. This has truely been an amazing experience, I don't have many personal friends really just my husband who is my best friend and my girls who come next. Having all if you is just perfect it gets me through some rough days. Nancy and Gary you made this holiday so much fun along with the rest of my friends here. Have a great day my friends - mmddgp  949.4 #7 8:14AM
