Yes, I am back again.
It's a funny thing, friendship and kindness.
I have had RA/Lupus and the chronic pain that goes with 'officially' since 2002.
My Hubby has done some special kindhearted things for me over that time, and my parents have given their whole hearted full out assistance in ways I could never repay.
Kathy left her son and hubby to spend the day with me in an ER when I didn't want to be alone, and she has had to drive up here to me 90% of the time because I just cannot do the travelling to her as easily, all very much appreciated.
I have been blessed when I have had to ask for assistance and I am so grateful.
But, so rare and blessed are acts of pure kindness.
Most of those have come from friends I have never met, never even spoken to on the phone.
Today I was blessed again. I received a beautiful letter and gift to pamper myself with from my friend, Rebecca Anne, of In The Shadow Of The Iris today.
We have never met. Never spoken on the telephone.
Yet, the kindness and understanding in her letter, and the intent with which she sent her gift has touched my heart, so deeply and brought me so much joy, that my mere words cannot express it fully.
Thank you, Rebecca Anne. I am truly blessed for the coincidence of life that brought us to AOL, and then for us to find each other in J-Land.
