Blogging connections happen sometimes over time and sometimes instantaneously. When it happens instantaneously, it’s that almost audible click between two souls, like when you buckle your seat-belt. Has this ever happened to you ~ you meet someone for the first time and you just know that you can trust each other and that you are friends with a special connection? It’s happened to me a few times in my life and it always makes me wonder what triggers that immediate friendship spark? Is it a soul to soul connection ~ perhaps our spiritual selves recognize a kinship? Or is it more profound, that we’ve perhaps been souls on similar journeys in the past and we’ve met up again suddenly? Or is it just the way life works ~ we are open to friendship and the other person is too so we become friends?
Well, when MoJo and I connected, it was like ‘we was peas and carrots’ (a la Forrest Gump!) and I knew my life had been ignited like a summer sparkler! We connected about a year ago. I can’t explain it any more than I can explain the Big Bang Theory to you. All I can say is that I am honored to be her friend and I am grateful for our connection. Because isn’t that what blogging is all about? Learning about others, connecting, inspiring, sharing, expanding our lives to unite this planet as one!
I awoke this morning to read her latest blog post ~ excited because she’s been away for a bit ~ and I was greeted with a phrase that I had said in response to one of her recent blogs. I hadn’t thought anything of it ~ I had commented as I normally do. But the phrase I used stuck with her ~ We’ll just do our best, right? ~ and I am honored to say that she used it in her blog! As we say in fishing, her blog’s a keeper (and not just because she used my phrase!) Check her out ~ you’ll be hooked like me!
I guess it’s like I was saying in yesterday’s blog post, everyday we get a chance to make a difference and sometimes you don’t even realize the difference that you are making simply by being yourself! I know that for me,
I am truly grateful for the differences you all make in my life and I just want to thank you.
So please hug yourself for me!
Just do your best…and
