Sometimes, we have an unexpected encounter which makes a significant impact on our lives.
When I joined this Group, almost a year ago, I started “liking” the posts of a funny, clever Member, who told us stories of her Lockdown life in the UK, brilliantly scripting the words through the “voice” of her cat and dog.
In return, she “liked” my silly stories, too.
Over the course of the last eleven months, we have developed a concrete friendship, and we talk to each other over the Internet at least once a week.
This beautiful soul lives in England, and I admire and respect her.
This weekend has been a difficult one for my friend, and she called me this morning, a bit emotional, and we wept together for a while.
Then, as friends do, we cheered each other up, and when we hung up, I realized that even though we’ve never been in the same country (let alone the same room), we have made a lasting and loving bond.
It’s because of this Community that she is my new friend. It’s because of this Community that I have had a reason to get up in the morning and tackle small daily goals. It’s because of this Community that I have found my voice and held my head up high.
So, my sweet Pip, know that you are not alone. Know that you are special, strong and fabulous. Know that you are loved.
See you all tomorrow!
Love and light from Cyprus
