love note...

dear friends,
i often think of you even though we have never met. when you are going through milestones and challenges in life, i carry you close to my heart. this morning, my spirit moved me to call one of my soeurs du jour, KATH, to wish her well in her knee surgery today and to let her know that i love her to da max. i try not to pass up occasions to say "i love you" (even if it really freaks people out). lol.
KATH was my pen pal in the first *gift of jewels* project but she has become so much more than a pen pal to me. she's always ready and willing to lend her love and support without hesitation and i really wanted to take this opportunity to reciprocate.
this would be the first time that we have spoken on the telephone because we are not really phone people. i nervously dialed her telephone number. the weirdest thing happened though. after a few rings, her sister Margie answered. I was a little perplexed because a few moments earlier, I read Margie's post saying that she wouldn't be with KATH today. it took me a minute, or two, to figure out that it was Margie's voice trapped in KATH's body. hey, i know my blonde roots are plentiful but they sound just alike! we had a big laugh and she went off to surgery in good spirits.
won't you please join me in saying a prayer for KATH?
i love you KATH. sending lots of positive vibes your way.

As always, your hearts leads you to where you need to go -- even with trepidation in making a phone call! :) I love that you tell people you love them...even if it freaks them out!!!

And I'm keeping Kath in my prayers and my thoughts -- sending her much love and healing thoughts.

Thankfully, KATH is on the mend. Your prayers work! Soon we can all start harassing her again (or maybe that's just me). whoo-hoo!
