Hi Annie,

The icon was made by Lanie, and she made it from one of the pictures that I posted earlier.

Arianwen, thank you so much for your kind words, but I must humbly say that the children are not mine.  Their paretns are Deacon Kevin (our choir director) and his wife, whose name I'm not sure of.  I simply keep an eye on the the two girls (Abby and Miranda) during the Liturgies.  I sing in the choir, and since Abby and Mira are the daughters of the director, they occasionally come over and stand either with me or with another member.  I love children to death, but unfortunately I'm still single and don't have any of my own.  Though I mst say that I hope my little ones will be as beautiful as these four.


*finally manages to remove her foot from her mouth* Perhaps that's what was making me cough so much, and it's not pneumonia at all...;) I really do feel quite daft at the moment, and the fact that this codeine turns me into a bumbling, giggling idiot certainly doesn't help matters, however amusing my husband finds it. ;) Note to self: must read posts MUCH more carefully before replying... *lifts a lock of hair to inspect it* Yes, still blonde. ;)

Also, thank you so much for your compliments regarding my looks.  I don't think I'm at all attractive, but I guess we're our own worst critics.  I will pass your comments regarding the children along to their parents.  Thank you again.


Well, I stand by those comments. You really are lovely, and I'm sure that if/when you DO have children, they'll be beautiful as well. ::)

Regards,
Arianwen

Hello Arianwen,
Please don't feel bad.  I do that kind of thing all the time, and for that reason I'm considered a ditz.  It's not a problem and yes, it is quite amusing.  Don't beat yourself up.  

Thank you again for your kind words.  I have ben feeling kind of down lately, and your comments made me feel a bit better.

Well, on that note, I should get back to the wonderful world of PoliSci and all the wonderful hoopla that is associated with tyrany of the majority and other equally "fascinating" stuff, so that I can do well on tomorrow's final and hopefully ace that class.  Thank you again for your kind words, and I hope that you continue feeling better.

I'm glad to hear that, then! *hug* You really have a lovely smile, and you'll have to post some photos without your sunglasses, so we can see your eyes. You've no reason to feel down, as you're a wonderful person with the looks to match. :) Whenever you need a self-esteem boost, or really, just if you want to say hello, please feel free to PM me. :) I LOVE getting messages. ;D

Thank you for the good wishes! So far, so good...*knocks on wood* Oh, how glad I am to be done with my theses (and yes, I meant the plural) and about to receive my masters' this weekend...lol Then, I have about ten years before I have to start worrying about my doctoral dissertation, and what on earth I'm going to do it on...::)

Regards,
Arianwen

Hello again, Arianwen,
Another "thank you" for your willingness to talk to me, and for your compliments  :).  I don't have any pictures without my glasses, which are a necessity due to my visual impairment.  The lenses are transitional, so they get lighter in the indoor setting and at night.  I will post some pictres of me in a different location so that you can get a clearer view of my eyes and what have you.  Thank you again for your compliments and kindness, and congratulations on your Master's Degree  :)!!!!  That is an achievement indeed, and I wish you all the luck in the world.  If you don't mind me asking, what are you getting your Master's in?  The fact that you had to write more then one thesis makes me think that perhaps you are getting more then one Master's.  In any case, very impressive.  I hope to be done with undergrad in two years time, and then I too will be on my way to Master's degree in either Russian or British history.  

You are more then welcome to PM/IM me as well.  I use AIM, and I'm on-line practically all the time.  I hope you contine feeling better.

*Hugs*

P.S.  Here's a picture of me during the summer during my visit to Pennsylvania.  The girl next to me is Angie, who also posts on this forum, under the name of Vive_HIH_Aleksey.  She lives in PA, and she was kind enough to have me come visit.

'Willingness to talk to you'? Why would I not want to talk to an intelligent, sweet, and delightful person? *hug*

I always have to wear glasses or contacts, too. I remember looking into the little vision machine when I was going for my Virginia dirvers' license, and they asked me to take off my glasses and read off the smallest line I could see. 'What lines?' I asked. I saw only a grey blur. lol Therefore, I can't legally drive without them, but my vision's not really that bad. My poor husband can't see three feet in front of his face without his, and he's legally blind without them.

Thank you so much! ;D Honestly, I'm quite glad to be done so I get that ten-year break before my doctorate, but all the same, I miss going to lectures and learning so much each day...well, I suppose I'll have to compensate by expanding my personal library. ;);D

I did my undergraduate degree in modern history and languages (French and Latin) with honours at Exeter College, Oxford, and my tutors wanted a thesis on a topic of my choice in the history section, and an hour-long interview with my tutors in each of the respective languages. That first thesis was on the Romanov remains and my theory as to which daughter is missing.

For my graduate degrees, I chose to do music education and history, this time doing my thesis on Richard III, a subject I'm quite passionate about. ;) Music required a full recital in my primary and secondary instruments (voice and piano), and a thesis explaining my method of teaching music.

I'm on AIM all the time myself, though often with an away message up. I'm sending you a PM now. :) Thank you again for the good wishes, and I'm continuing to get better, slowly, but surely. *sigh* It's the 'slowly' that gets to me. ;)

Oh, how lovely you both look! I still love how your smile lights up the rest of your face. :)

Dasha - thanks for the links to your lovely pictures!  Arianwen is right - you are beautiful, and I just love the way that your smile lights up your face.  Also love the icon that Lanie made for you :)

Arianwen, Val, and BlueToria,

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORDS!  I'm very touched by all your compliments.  I never thought that my smile did anything of that sort, but then again, I'm not the one to think all that highly of myself.  I love children to most likely no end, and spending time with them is really a treat.  I joke with people at church that they need to keep their children away from me, because I'll just start playing with them.  It's now known that "whereever Dasha is, there will most likely be child either in her arms or held by the hand".  I really hope that I'm not soundint arrogant right now, because that's not at all how I'm trying to come across.  

Thank you so much again for all of your kind words, and I'm really glad that you enjoyed my pictures.

P.S.  Arianwen, I received your PM and sent you a reply.  Your uni experience sounds great.  The work that you must have put into your two thesis must have been absolutely tremendous.  Great job and congratulations once more.

Dasha - You're welcome :)  It's so very easy to see why children are drawn to you.  You sounding arrogant?  You don't ever have to worry about that, trust me :)

Dasha, you are the last person in the world to sound arrogant!!  :)

Here's a lovely quotation from Charles Dickens that you might like:

"I love little children & it is no small thing when they, who are fresh from God, love us."  :)

BlueToria, thank you so much for your reasuring words.  The quote is lovely indeed.  Children are very sensitive and intuitive beings.  They will show unconditional love, regardless of one's looks, race, physical, or emotional health.  They respond readily with a hug and a rather bright and innocent smile, however, if they sense danger or some sort of "wrong" vibe, they will be the first to keep their distance.  Of course there are those who ar just exptermely friendly and talk to anyone, but a lot do show a sense of rather good character judgment.  

Again, thank you so much for your kind words.  :)
