Yesterday I got an e-mail from a good blogging friend who's struggling with things some loved ones are facing. I began to answer her e-mail and thought, why write when I can call? And so, after holding onto her number for months I phoned her for the first time. Needless to say she wasn't expecting my call and took a few seconds to realize who I was. When she did it was like a 1400 mile hug.
We've known each other for almost two years. I first came across her blog when she was completely anonymous, gradually she grew comfortable with me and today we can confide in each other about anything. It was great hearing her voice on the phone, we were able to talk through what she was dealing with a little and have a few laughs along the way. I was even able to let her talk with Sandy. And it got me wondering how many of us have been able to do this.
Have you ever called or mailed a blogging friend?
