Maybe it was my vivid and scary dreams last night that made me wake up this morning feeling completely hopeless and afraid of I don't know what. I know I am not alone with this experience. That foreboding and despair that seems to come from no-where for no apparent reason. And even if there is a reason for it, the "feeling" is still the same.
I opened my email and there was a message from a friend. She was passing on a prayer of hope, that couldn't have been more timely for me.
- It made me remember that I am not alone, even if there are times I am physically alone.
- I saw that distance is no barrier for friendship, especially in this day and age.
- There will be times when we can't have the benefit of touch, but the appropriate words can many times adequately take it's place.
Thank you to my dear friends back home who have been a fountain of strength and support over the years in so many ways. And thanks to the new friends I am making online who through their blogs have given me another community, another place to belong.
