This post is for my friend Sharon in Western Australia. Sharon and I have become friends through Twitter and it was by chance that we met through another friend, in New Zealand no less.
Sharon and I have talked and emailed frequently and just discovered a few days ago that we share a birthday. Serendipity. Sharon told me once that she reads my words at night when she wants to get away from the everyday things. Her comment made me cry and endeared her to me forever. On paper, our lives are very different, but we have developed a commonality despite the differences. We've connected across miles. I believe we are all set down in the paths of others for good reasons and we should pay attention when it happens.
Since Sharon is thirteen hours ahead of me, she will see our birthday before I will. But no matter, it is still something we will share always. And so, Happy Birthday my dear friend Sharon. Wishing you a day of happiness and peace, along with some fun. I'm blessed to have met you :-)
