I have many “online” friends, yes online friends. You may laugh, but they are very nice women, who are non-judgemental, supportive and kind. Of course there are the other kind too, but we won’t go there. I even had one who I had never met in person come stay with me for a week, which ended up to be a couple of weeks, and a blast! Oh, and a trip to Vegas with a group of them, HOLLA! That was great, but you know, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!
One of my online aquaintances, who has a son born the same month as Zachary, had her husband pass away today. From what I know, he was young, and had some breathing issues, and later died in the ER.
I hate to wish that on anyone. It puts everything in perspective though. Would I rather have a husband leave, but still be around for support with the kids, or completely gone? Of course I wouldn’t wish either on anyone.
It sucks for her and her two young boys. No time is a good time to loose someone, but certainly this time of year makes it hard. I wish her well, and hope she has the support of family, but I know she has the support of her online friends.
