Could it be Possible?
Do you believe or think it is possible to be friends with someone that you have never met in person? I can honestly say YES! I have met some AMAZING people through Facebook that have found me because I walk in the 3-day. They have friends and they suggest that we become friends. I met my tent mate (Mel) last year through a friend that suggested we chat. Now we talk often, share stories and help each other the best we can through all obstacles. Another wonderful woman I met along the way through one of my High School class mates (Sandi) was Joyce. (Joyce) has been another wonderful source of inspiration and she brought another woman into my life (Tayor) who is fighting cancer every day, fighting for her life at the tender age of 22. Taylor, even though I have never met or spoken to her. Through the blog ( Team 15% ) that Joyce writes people get to learn about Taylor and her amazing ways, never giving up & keeping her faith even when she feels alone. She has inspired so many people that she has never even met. Lastly I have met Cathy from Cathy's Creations & Lisa who is a cancer survivor who I have had many chats with. They are both lovely women that I am honored to be able to call my friends, but yet we have never met. I am so Thankful for all of my wonderful new friends that have enriched my life more than they will ever know. All because cancer somehow touched our lives. So, as much as I HATE CANCER and can't wait for the day that it is no more, I have to sadly say THANK YOU for bringing me closer to so many wonderful people that I may have never met other wise. Each one of you have taught me so much through your courage, strength, determination & never giving up attitude. Walking 60 miles over 3 days really doesn't seem like enough giving back for all that you have given to me. I love each and every one of you for sharing with me & bringing me into a new chapter in my life.
