Today I am overwhelmed, but overwhelmed in a good way.  I was all set to write about lonliness, which I still want to do soon, but I’ve had a change of heart.  I cannot ignore the response that I received from the post yesterday.  How could I possibly think about lonliness when so many of you wrote such kind and supportive comments?

We have never met, we don’t know much about each other, have no idea what most of us do all day or where we live, and yet there is a solidarity between us and it is beautiful.  You identified with my need for perfection (hope it’s that and not control, that would be worse, I think), and you offered such kind support, friendship and advice.  I am truly grateful and humbled.  Thank you.

It’s funny, we are able to connect to people in so many different ways.  There are always the ‘old fashioned’ family and friends, those people with whom we work and have that in common, others who we may meet along the way by chance, and now, our friends through blogging.

When I began this a few months ago, I had no idea what it would lead to and what a gift it would be.  Not only have I been able to express some of my own heart ‘whispers’ but I have met so many of you who have truly overwhelmed me with your wisdom and love.  God is good, he seems to know what we need when we need it and he always provides in quiet, loving abundance.

And so I thank you.  We are a funny bunch, we humans.  Who would have ‘thunk’ that a silly ‘missed a day’ post would bring me such joy and comradery?  And now……I’m on my way to read your posts…..
