A Friend’s Loss

We bloggers form an odd circle of friendship. I follow a great many blogs by people from all over the world. Some blogs are written by people I actually know personally, while others are penned by people I’ve never met, and most likely will never meet. Miles and miles, and often oceans, separate us.

Many of the people I follow also follow me. We get to know each other and I, at least, look forward to their next photographs or poems or essays on life. I care about my blogging friends

Yesterday, one blogger shared with us that he’d just learned of his adult son’s death. His post was real and raw and I began crying as I read it aloud to my husband. My heart hurt, and I felt so helpless that I just wanted to go to bed and cover my head with the covers.

My prayers are with him and his family. I hope they know just how many people are thinking of them, and sending love their way, and crying tears that they will never see, but are very real and heartfelt.

  1. I agree, even though I only know my blogging community through the power of words, I feel a connection. I currently read a blog where a woman shared about the unexpected death of her adult son. Over this past year she has eloquently and passionately written words reflecting immense pain and suffering about her journey and almost every single one of her entries moves me to tears. I can only imagine the horror and pain of losing a child and my heart hurts for anyone who has been through this. My thoughts and prayers are with your blogging friend during this most difficult time in their life.

  2. Oh this is so sad. My deepest condolences to your blogger friend. It’s true, bloggers do feel a connection with each other. There is something about putting a part of yourself out there and it resonating with people who are so far from you. Much love.
