That's What Friends Are For...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketSometimes people say things to you that are just so great, you're sorry that more people weren't around to hear it. Thankfully, through the wonder that is Blogging, sometimes you get to share those things because they're in writing.

I've had my share of nonsense and issues of late. I have my "support team" in many different forms, thanks to the Web. And I get a lot of support and inspiration from people in so many different ways. Sometimes, though, someone just takes that extra step to make you feel so much better.

This was a comment a friend left me recently. Days later, it honestly still chokes me up in a good way, and I don't think I'll ever forget it. So if I may, please indulge me for sharing these words, ok?

I don't know if this is the right time or place but I'm going to get a little spiritual. Some stuff kept running through my mind as I read your post--esp about the disability part. I don't know what you believe regarding the next life, but each of us will be resurrected one day--which means our spirits will be reunited with our perfect form. Our bodies are mortal here on earth and thus subject to illness and wear and tear. Whatever ailment, physical deformity, etc. we have in this life will be gone in the next. Thus, all your knee problems, back problems, down to the smallest scar will be gone and your body will be restored to its most perfect form.

Sorry if I got a little carried away; you don't have to publish this, but for some reason I felt impressed to share that.

I hope you appreciate it as much as I did.


  1. jimmy--oh my gosh.....I felt kinda dorky the next day thinking about that comment I left. I was like "ok, that was a little too much." But, uh, glad you liked it. ;-)

    There's more where that came from....I've got all kinds of gems up my sleeve.

    (I tried publishing this comment anonymously but I don't think it let me, dang it!! I'm a little embarrassed)

  2. I think I missed that blog posting? :(

    Beautiful and spiritual. Kristen you have no cuase to be embarrassed about that comment. It shows spirit and love.
    Jimmy, You are fortunate to have friends like her!


  4. She's pretty great isn't she, Jimmy? She's also telling the truth. When it comes to spiritual things, Kristen knows what she's talking about. That's why you get that warm, choked up feeling when she talks (or types as the case may be).

  5. You may absolutely link to me, I'd be honored!!!

    I will also do the same!

    Have a great day, Jimmy!
