I have a map of the United States on a plastic place mat that I purchased for my granddaughter's so they could become familiar with names of the states. This early morning while eating breakfast I found myself studying the map. The entire time I was thinking "where is the mindfulness". I am trying to do one thing at a time.
It made me more aware of the many different states and world that my journal friends are from. Liza, Hawaii - Beverly, Memphis - Gail, Nashville, - Tabor, Eastern state - Jessi, Thailand - Marian, England, Cate, Canada - Judy, Kentucky - Darlene, Arizona - Nan, Eastern state, Aisling - Northern state, Ronni, Maine.
Comments from Oklahoma, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts. Probably many that are not coming to mind at the moment.
I find this exciting. Especially since my journal is about 5 months old.
Also friends that come about this way are not based on what we see visually or what someone might have, but it is based on what we share from our hearts by writing about our pleasures, our thoughts, dreams and shortcomings. We share images and by doing this we almost feel as though we are visiting one another.
By sharing this way it seems we connect with others in some kind of miraculous way. So since I am new to this online world, I find this exciting.
I can remembering in my prayer time making a request for new friends in my new neighborhood. So this prayer was not answered in exactly the way I expected.
But then I have learned that my prayers are always answered but not in the way I would expect.
If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair
