When I was in high school, I had the privilege of being a part of a sorority. I had never understood what sisterhood or friendship really meant until I joined that group. A lot of people laugh when I tell them this, because high school is just soooo high school. Well, what do you call a group of girls who like you just as you are, warts and all; people who stand by you and stand up for you when everyone else hides in the background? They are lifetime friends. You may fall out of touch with them, and not see them for years, but when you find each other, it's as if the moments from then and now didn't even exist. I often miss feeling that kind of comradery as an adult. Once out of high school, you learn to stand on your own and not to rely too much on others. You learn that the world is not always friendly, and more often than not, people laugh when you fall.
I have been blessed twice over when I joined Safeteam on Etsy. I always had fun chatting it up with the ladies (and the two fellas) on the team. I've never actually met any of my team mates, we only talk via the internet and Etsy. We each had our individual highs and lows, but then one of our own ended up being very sick. This particular team mate had to have surgery, and she then developed a post-operative infection. Now another surgery is underway, and we won't know how it went for a while yet.
The group that I am a part of now far surpasses anything I've ever experienced. Most of us have never met, most of us will never meet, and yet we are all pulling for our friend. We've all given what we could, and for some, all we could give were prayers and well wishes. All we want is our friend to be well. There's so much I want to say, but I think our friend would be upset that we are all upset for her....So I'll leave all the warm fuzzy stuff in the bunny ears and out of this blog, and I'll just say this.....keep on fighting, Anhoki, and we'll all talk again when you're feeling better :)
