For Sorrow

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”

C.S. Lewis

My blogging friend, Sorrow Grey, reached out across cyberspace yesterday and touched my heart. How does that happen? That someone I don't actually know knows me well enough to put a comment on my "Refuge" post that made me smile, cry and feel blessed?
Please go back and read her comments and check out the John Denver songs she mentions. I have seriously never heard of these songs and I thought I was the most devoted of Denver devotees. The songs are really, really special. But more than that is the one who 1)took the time to read my post 2) related to what I said 3)remembered what I've written in the past of my connection to John Denver and 4) knew how his songs would take me to a place of peace. How cool is that?
And then, on top of all that, this sweet lady puts yet another song on her post for Merry Me.
I hope that I can someday repay the favor - or pay it forward as Sorrow does with her creations she sells on Etsy.
For now, I say a humble prayer of gratitude for friends, songs and a happy heart.
May each of you be blessed with peace,

Merry, it is a moment of rarity and joy, when we do simple things that make some one else's day brighter, and you have done so for me! ( more than just today! I still carry an image in my heart of fairy wings by the side of the road)
THANK YOU, may your days be blessed.
