After writing that last blog I realized, I AM special! How dare I belittle one of God's creations made in the image of God. Whether I have friends or not does not say one little thing about how much I am loved by God...and He's the only one that really matters. Plus, what makes a FaceBook or email friend any less precious. You provide comfort, prayers and encouragement and I love you guys!
Okay, admittedly my last few posts have, well, sucked (I do have an excuse, my sister's cat has been using my hand as a permanent place to rest her frustratingly cute head - I can't say no and push her away).
Recently I commented on one of Lindsey Nobles' great blogs. To my surprise, she replied to my comment. When I found out, it suddenly made me feel "special" and excited; I was important! Somebody had read what I had written and thought it worthy of a reply!
My comment (or confession, if you like) was about my lack of "real true life" friends; the fact that the only friends I had are friends through email or Face Book. It was also a confession about the thought that my "friends" gain or lose notches according to how quickly they respond to any message I send them. I do (well, should) realize that others actually have lives and aren't there to answer at my beck and call (I think that's the way it goes) yet, even in light of that fact, I find myself affected either positively or negatively depending on the amount of time it takes them to get back to me. There it is, the truth. Pretty sad.
