In the beginning
it was something to do, to keep the children updated with our thoughts
and the events in our lives.
We had one daughter in the UK, one daughter in Sydney and a son in Brisbane
When did it change? how did it change?
I don't know!!
I do know that I never expected it to bring such changes in my life
I never expected that I would make friends!
This blog world is an amazing place
a place where,
when you meet someone, you meet the essence of that person
There is no pre judgement on age, appearance, clothing or accent
(I hate to think I do this but being honest I think we all do a little bit!)
But here we have no idea and so friendships form
Some will remain, like pen friends, words on a screen
some will become more personal, emails separate to the blog,
but for both these types of friendships there is an intimacy that we share that is rare and beautiful
and then there is the third friendship we make
the ones who reaches out in a time of need and says what can I do?
here is my phone number, ring me if you need to!
This is the one that eventually you ring because you think you will be able to carry on a conversation without bursting into tears...you think it will be a quick call just to say thank you.
An hour later this blogging friend has become someone special
So imagine my joy, my exultation, when just prior to Christmas we made arrangements to catch up
On Tuesday I had coffee with the gorgeous Kerry from
a tranquil townhouse
and I can tell you that she is as lovely in person as she is here
she is as generous with her time and her honesty as she is here
Kerry thank you for joining me
thank you for the absolutely beautiful scarf that I did notice with the cherries!
and thank you for being there and enriching my life.
It really is a beautiful world this blogging world!!!
