In the dark, it's difficult to find the light.
Starting this blog, the 10 of us were "on line" friends. We were woman who joined together to share our love of photography and our lives.
We didn't know that we would fast become life sisters, as we focused on our lives and shared.
Today, as I am struggling with some of the darkest times of my life, I receive 3 post cards from some of my "life sisters" who had participated in a post card swap. I had not joined that workshop yet I was blessed enough to receive 3 lovely postcards with a hand written note from each of them. Hand written notes are fast becoming a lost art.
Things just don't happen by chance. People don't come into our lives by chance.
I was amazed at the similarity of each of these cards. There was no instruction as to what the post cards were to be, only to print some of their favorite photos onto the cards, yet look how the colors of greens are almost spot on! All gorgeous. All of wonderful flowers.
Each card had a sweet note, each unique. But each signed...FOL life sister! This brought me to tears.
Words can not express how they touched my heart just at the time I needed them. Thank you!
Borrowing Leigh's quote from her post card:
"When words become unclear,
I shall focus with photographs.
When images become inadequate,
I shall be content with silence."
Next Monday we will roll out a new monthly theme, so take your last chance to post to our Flickr pool with your WATER photos! If you don't have any to add stop by and just see the fabulous ones that have been shared! You all ROCK!
