I have heard story after story of heartache. I have witnessed pain, sorrow and intense love. I have seen peoples hearts printed out for the world to see, in hopes it will touch someone.
One of the most important things I have seen though, I'm not sure I could put into words. It's a CONNECTION. It's hard to imagine unless you've been there. When people get together, over the miles... state to state and country to country, and they connect. REALLY CONNECT!! It is amazing. Absolutely amazing.
I'm not talking about the "man to woman" connection. I'm talking about the "friend to friend." I'm talking about some people you have met, that instantly you KNEW were going to be important in your life.
The ones you laugh with, kid with, cry with, hurt for when they are hurting. They make you worry. They make you crazy! The ones who touch you deep inside when they are not there anymore, and make you wish they were.
If you have ever experienced that type of connection with someone you have never met... face to face... you have indeed been blessed. I know, without a doubt, that I have!
I am a man, very smarth, and good
