Thank you for those kind words--I really appreciate them.  One book I've recommended in another thread, that I've found VERY helpful in the care and feeding of a polite spine, is How to Say No Without Feeling Guilty by Patti Breitman and Connie Hatch.  The book emphasizes coming from a place of compassion and firm convictions when you have to say no, and making your no as polite and respectful as possible.  I first discovered the book about ten years ago... so I've had that long to polish my spine  :)
