This morning I sat down at my computer, with puffy swollen eyes from crying myself to sleep last night, and was drinking in all of the kind comments you all have left over the past couple of days. I am so thankful for each of you and your tender support of me. Your kind words are the salve to my broken heart. Each comment means so much.
But this morning there was one comment that really touched my heart, more so than usual.
It comes from a commentor that I have never met in real life. She lives thousands of miles from me and has absolutely no connection to adoption. She is a mom of two young children and somehow happened upon my blog. She has been a faithful reader ever since. We have even become FB friends and I love being able to watch her life through her blog and her FB page. She is the sweetest, most tender hearted person. I wish she lived closer so we could be IRL friends! I know she prays for me all the time, and there is nothing more touching than to know that someone cares enough to lift my worries up to God. That alone shows such character as far as I'm concerned.
Anyway, here are the sweet words she left this morning...
As I was praying this morning for your family, I thought to myself, as I often do, "Gosh, I really hope that I'm friends with Lisa forever, because I can't wait to be a part of the day that Brit is reunited, forever (not just once a year) with her family!" What a joyous, beautiful day it will be! And although none of us know when it will be, just know that I'm certain it will happen, and she will know how much you all love her!!! :)Melt my heart. Yes, Christina, I hope we are friends forever but I hope that day comes sooner rather than later.
Love and prayers,
