Generally I have a title for a post before I write.  Today I don't.  One will emerge. 

A man I used to be friends with has re entered my life via Facebook.  Facebook has connected me with several old friends, but this man immediately reached beyond its pages.  We've exchanged a couple e-mails and his intentions appear sincere and trustworthy.  He wants to get to know the woman behind the photos on Facebook. 

I welcome the connection.  Since he lives hundreds of miles away, it appears we'll be pen pals.  But in some ways we're two peas in a pod.  Both introverts, both presently unmarried, both thoughtful, and both writers.  Well, he's an author of seven nonfiction books, so his league is, well, different.

My hope is that I can find a true friend, one I can relate to and care about.

That's all I wanted to say.  I welcome a new chapter in my life, and love that I can contribute to it by writing.

I think God has good intentions for me.  "Where love is, there is God also."

I just looked up this quote. It is the title of a story by Leo Tolstoy.  I just read the story.  Now I know why this post doesn't have a title.  The 'love' has to be filled in by me.

Where _____ is, there is God also.


  1. Good for you! Hopefully this connection will serve you well. It must be satisfying to share your writing goals as well.

    I read your post on 'widowsspeak' and logged onto your blog. I find it interesting!

    I am a four-year widow and its still challenging to 'come into my own.' Maybe I will eventually make it to post widowhood.

  2. I'm hoping we all get there! We know widowhood is a transformative experience into a scary and bleak place. I want so to come out the other side, with peace and gratitude. To that end I ask Life to transform me yet again, into the light. What is working for you, bringing you new life?

  3. I hope the relationship turns into what you are looking for. But remember it's the journey that's important, not the goal. Enjoy it!

  4. Well, the relationship didn't turn into what I thought it would, but I'm grateful for loving. I did enjoy it, no regrets.
