Today was a sad day. The weather was miserable and I got some sad news after lunch. There are people in this world that you meet whether it's in person or over the phone or internet that you come to know very well. In this day and age it isn't uncommon to consider people friends even though you have never met them in person and they live halfway across the world.
I belong to an online community for one of my soap operas and I have come to know many of the ladies there very well and consider them like a second family. They are wonderful people and helped me to keep my sanity when I was home on maternity leave with little adult interaction.
Today I learned that one of those friends passed away today after a battle with cancer. Although I never met Donna, I came to know her as a beautiful person who was very giving and thoughtful. I remember mentioning once in passing that the boys were terrible sleepers. Donna read this and she contacted me letting me know about a great book she recommended I read. But rather than give me the name of the book, she went out and bought it and sent it to me. I couldn't believe it. I didn't know Donna very well and here she was spending her hard earned money on something that she knew I would find useful. She was a wonderful person and I feel very privileged to have known her. Rest in peace, Donna. xo
Here is my only picture of the day. I tried to cheer myself up by baking. Yes - me baking. I have grown to love baking since I had the boys. The thing is I enjoy making stuff but I rarely eat any of it. It's not that it's terrible - I just enjoy the creating much more than the eating. Now if those cookies were a Whopper combo with fries, it would be a different story. I'd be on them like a fat kid on a smartie. :)
That was it for today. Thanks for looking!
