My heart was glowing as I wore the bracelet around my wrist, and bike along the country, on my way to pick um middle child with littlest, feeling so very loved.
When the girls and I finally reach home again, after spending a carefree afternoon - so relieved that is finally Friday (!!!), I read aloud to them the note that came with the bracelet.
Perhaps they would not understand completely what it meant to me, but I am very sure they felt the joy I had over the message of love and hope I received this afternoon, like the liberating joy I felt over the message of love and hope four years ago.
Online friendships means as much to me as the friendship I have offline. I never differentiate it as online life versus, real life friendship. The former is as tangible for me as the latter.
It is a long story to tell but my connections in the internet has helped me reach out in my personal life when I could have easily disappeared and sink in the daily existence of unhappiness, just flowing along the ebb of life - lifeless.
Friendship across the ocean, I can say with much conviction could be more powerful than the one in one's close proximity.
