One day, a couple of weeks ago, I was up late sitting in bed and reading my e-mails. I had received one from Debby from Canada. What she wrote and said in that e-mail had me in tears. She is not a blogger but has been following my blog for some time and described how much she had identified with some of my life's path like the loss of a mother, raising a young one in your later years. Anyway, I won't get into details but somehow for her, things I had said in my posts just clicked. We clicked. I was very moved by her words and how much she remembered about my posts from the past. She sent this calendar to me based on the cover and how much it reminded her of the post I did on my husband's old workboots and how I planted flowers in them after he finally got a new pair. Wow! I mean how awesome is that. I get so much more than I could ever give on this blog. You all offer me such encouragement and fellowship.
She was so sweet to go through the trouble to send me this package with a wonderful note and enclosed a recipe I am wanting to try. This is how I feel blogging is similar to dating websites. You see blogs and you find out what a person is like and similarities to you. Things in common, kindred spirits and all that. It weeds out the folks you just have nothing in common with and sometimes you just have a match. Someone has said something you can totally relate with and a bond is formed. Am I off the deep end here? Maybe. But I have corresponded and met with some really terrific women through this journey of blogging. I just want to regularly say thanks. Thank you Debby and thanks to my blogging friends.
