What makes you feel blessed? Is it the people who you cross paths with or being in good health or something else?
I feel blessed for many things but there is something that is making me feel extra blessed today. I feel extra blessed because of two people I have crossed paths with.
Should they read this post they will know who they are. I will not mention names but I do have to tell how they have impacted my life and made me feel blessed to have them in my life.
The first person I met back in early 2011. Before I was blessed with Joshua I use to be a gamer and that is how I crossed paths with him. We played online games together, we talk, he listened, and he was there for me when I was in a very deep depression in 2012 when I lost my son John.
When John passed away I turn to online gaming from the time I woke to the time I went to bed. This was how I escaped the reality of life. When this happen this caused me to shut everyone out and shut down completely but because he was there playing the game with me, he was able to be there for me. He listened to me when I needed to talk.
I am unable to be a gamer because I have a toddler but we are still friends. I miss him because we only talk every few months or less.
He will forever be a friend that I am able to talk to.
Now for the second person that I have been blessed to cross paths with.
I am not really sure how this friendship got started but I am very thankful for it! We have crossed paths because we both blog.
When I first started blogging, I started out with no support and no help. If you are a blogger you know first hand that when starting out and not having any help, it is very stressful and very easy to want to give up.
When I was almost at my wit’s end with blogging that is when our friendship started to grow. This is when she gave me the push to keep moving. How did she do it? She tells me all the time that I am doing good.
As time has gone on, we realized that we have so much in common. We both are able to vent and understand because we have been in each other’s shoes.
She never expects anything from me. She listens to me when I am complaining, or just needing to vent about everyday life. I also am happy to listen to her vent and talk about her everyday living.
I have never felt so comfortable asking a simple question and feel ok to do so like I do when I talk to her. I will always try to figure things out on my own first because that is just how I am.
She understands if she sends me a message and it takes me awhile to get back to her. I also understand that it may take her time to reply to me when I send a message. We understand this because we are both very busy moms.
The crazy thing about all this is that I have never met these two awesome friends and I honestly believe that these will be friendships that last a lifetime.
These are stress-free friends, no drama friendships and I enjoy them very much and feel very blessed to have these two people in my life.
I have trust issues and feel like I am being judged all the time or being compared to others, I can honestly say that these two awesome people I can trust and they don’t judge me or compare me to others they know.
I do hope that you have been blessed with great friends like I have been even if you have never met them in person.
