FRIENDS VS. FRIENDSHIP
Anyhoo, REAL FRIENDS, are even more valuable today than ever. HOWEVER, I must admit I've got to eat some crow. Yes, it's not fun but I was actually WRONG once in my life. Wrong, when I made fun of people who "met" people On-Line and even married people they had never met in person. How on earth, could you get to know someone and develop a true friendship via the Internet??? Why that was not only dangerous but simply not done in polite society...........WELL.......I was WRONG.
ALONG CAME YOU....AND YOU...AND YOU...AND SAMM... AND SANDRA...AND MARLENE....AND TERESA....AND PATRICIA....AND JANE....AND CAROL...AND LESLEY...AND JULIE....AND GENE...AND SHARON...AND JOHNA'LEE...AND DENISE....AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON...........WELL YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!
Last week was a particularly rough week and I was having a particularly bad day...a real pity party if you will.
I got a ticket on my way home from a Dr.'s appointment
I ran out of gas, lost my cell phone, and had to walk to the nearest store to call for rescue
I had not had my morning cuppa
most of all, I was worried over my grandson's latest EEG report
confirming SEIZURES at the rate of 1-2 per 5 SECONDS
LOOK AT THAT SMILE!!
You read that correctly
1-2 seizures per second.
Now, these seizures are not recognizable by the usual seizure activity. His dramatic change in behavior both at home and at school did not bypass the radar of my ever diligent daughter who took him to the Pediatrician, who ordered the EEG to simply RULE OUT Nocturnal Seizures.
It was indeed Seizures causing the behaviors, the symptom free vomiting at night, super sensitivity to loud sounds, Thunderstorms, unexplained BM's after being potty trained for 2 yrs., etc...
A PHONE CALL FROM CANADA?
COULD ONLY BE 1 OF 2 PEOPLE AND...... IT WAS
One of THOSE ON-LINE FRIENDS I met about 3 yrs. ago via this blog. Sandra was just calling to see how I was because she had read on my FB page the news about my grandson's seizure diagnosis and knew I had to be worried and might need a friendly word of encouragement!!
MIGHT need a word of encouragement??? That may be the year's biggest understatement!
THAT, MY DEAR BLOGGING FOLLOWERS/FRIENDS
the REAL kind, the TRUE kind,,,,
And we've never even met!? Maybe not physically met, but we've met via our Hearts!
YEP, you CAN meet people on-line and become more than "Friends" more like
Heart to Heart Friends.
can be found in the most unusual places. My Blog is proof enough for me that the world is still filled with GOOD people despite what we hear on the news. I began blogging on a dare from my daughter and thought I would simply share some family stories, MAYBE show a few quilting pieces and go about my merry way. HA!! Did I ever have to
It only took ONE phone call from a FRIEND to convince me!
THANK YOU SANDRA D. IN CANADA!!!
