I have been sitting here for the past while contemplating. My kids, if not asleep are at least up in bed, my husband is away for work and I have the evening before me to do whatever I like. I click on my Bloglines to read all my internet blogs and I start to have a hard time understanding the world. It’s a weird time of year, a sad one. I have several blog friends waiting for the phone call that changes a life (one call very overdue), one who got that call and all the panic that goes along with it. I have a blog friend suffering a terrible loss and several others waiting with happiness. It is also almost a year ago that a wonderful lady died. This particular friend I met on a moms message board. I got to know her over about two years and spent one weekend last February getting into hijinks and laughter with her and many others at a retreat we attended. It is really hard to believe in a few short weeks a year will have passed since she suddenly and without warning died. She left behind family, children, a husband and so many friends that it would be impossible to count them all. Even though our actual ‘face time’ was brief I don’t think I could forget her, she was definitely one of a kind.
So much sadness across the internet tonight. And even though a lot of you I have never met, I take your happiness and joys, and sadness and sorrows very much to heart. I think of you when you have a bad day or a happy one. I just want you to know, there is someone out there and I am listening.
