Six Work Saturday

I am worried about a friend


I was going to write "worried about a blogger friend" but it was too many words and the "blogger" part just didn't seem to make sense - even though that is the connection. Renee has had her own troubles and now 3 family members are ill. I know that people who know her are worried about her and her family - so it seemed appropriate for a six word Saturday to send as many healing wishes and love and prayers her way as possible. Renee has a great talent for writing (which I do not - unless under the influence of music) and for loving.

I think this is the worst part of having friends far away. You can't go over to the house and help out. You can't visit. You have minimal ways of contacting the person and may not find out for days what has happened, if ever. But the friendships are so real in so many other ways - and I worry as if they were living down the street.

Much love to Renee and her family. Many thoughts and prayers for the health of them all.

I will keep Renee and her family in my thoughts. I know that supposedly we aren't given more than we can bear but sometimes it seems people get more than their share.

Thank you for participating.

I am sending healing energy thoughts to Renee who I do not know at all, but because she is connected to me through my knowing you it makes sense...we are all so connected.
Which brings me to say that I so understand the feelings you get from our "blogging" friendships, as I agree that for me they are ever as much and sometimes more so than real life/in the flesh, close to home friendships. Well, I have more blog than close to home friends. Not that my close to home friends are less dear in compairson, it just has widened my life in ways I'd never have imagined before making these on line friendships. So all that to say, yes, I understand.
And I wish her well. And her family too.

Dear Mim: you are so dear and I am so lucky to have you as my friend.

I am glad you took out the word blogger, because to me it doesn't apply.

I want to thank you not only for this post, but for the love you have sent to me.

I feel it and I am grateful.

Love Renee xoxo
