Hello my fellow WordPress community,
I’m so sorry for being AWOL for so long! Quick 3 Facts to update you guys:
- I went to London last week so I’m still trying to get rid of my jet lag! It’s been hitting me so horribly and my sleeping schedule is so messed up! Does anyone know how to get rid of this jet lag ASAP?
- The weather is so iffy in Vancouver. What do you do when the sky wants to melt onto us, turning us into a very yucky and hazy puddle?
- STANZAs SUNDAY WILL BE BACK! I will post one shortly today if I can! 🙂
So, if you’ve read this title, you might be wondering what signed book my friend gave me. I think it’s too good of a friendly gesture to ignore or dim. I’m so thankful, especially when this friend, an ex coworker, didn’t have to give me anything or do anything like this for me. It’s so weird because I haven’t talked to her in almost 4 months, and yet she’s thinking of me. It also makes me wonder the value of friendships and comparing that to my other friendships. It’s certainly one of the nicest things anyone has done for me.
A little backstory: my friend is a fellow romance writer and was at a conference (or workshop?) with this author. She was nice enough to think of me, talk to this author about me, AND get the latest book signed just for me. I’ve attached a picture beside, but it isn’t one of those crappy generic signatures. It felt personalized, more than the 3 words that it was. It felt special.
This situation has taught me that true friends exist even if you don’t know everything about each other, communicate 25/7, or live right beside each other. Just because you don’t interact with them everyday doesn’t mean they aren’t thinking about you. We can be loved from a distant. We are so loved all around; we just don’t notice it most of the time.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. This summer is being very eventful for me. I’m excited to see what August brings! The Radiant and Constant Sun I hope.
