Carrying Love Half Way Around The World
--by wayfarer, posted Jun 14, 2009
The postie has just delivered a letter. It's from a friend in a far away land. Inside is a note, a list of "I Believes" and a beautiful bookmark.
I've been sitting here for the past five minutes at a loss for words. Not because of the gift, although it is sweet, not because of the thought, although that is also appreciated, but because my friend took that thought and that gift and put them into action, in a way that carried love half way around the world.
That's an awesome thing, and, well, it's a lot to take in.
So, I'll digress a little and mention one of the "I Believes." My friend says, "I Believe ... that your life can be changed by people who don't even know you." In a very real way, that's what you all out there in HelpOthersland are doing. You change the lives of the people you help, but you also change the lives of the people you share with on this site. We're becoming a family, for the best of all possible reasons. Thank you all for that.
And to my friend, I Believe ... you have changed my life!
You have touched more lives than you can imagine. And i am glad you shared this special gift with all of us.
Love and hugs,
