Somewhere Out there

The delightful, artistic
Sherrie over at happy tiler created this playful, glamourous, Whimsical portrayal! We look like two peas in a colorful pod because, we've been lucky enough to discover.. We ARE!
When I saw the Sunday Scribblings Prompt was Somewhere, I immediately thought of my treasured friend Sherrie. Geographically she is somewhere else. Somewhere far from me. Somewhere I desire to visit, but I know is currently not possible. Her location may be elsewhere, but her genuine love, caring friendship and sincere sisterhood are right here with me. I thought to myself "hmmm, HOW I can I effectively express our magical,special kindred bond for Sunday Scribblings?" Then! Happy Synchronistical fate, I discovered my cyber soul sister had had the SAME idea and expressed it SO beautifully well for the two of us!! (two peas you see!) Her Perfectly expressed thoughts Are echoed from my heart and are to follow Here on my blog... and Somewhere out there- Her blog!
(Your poem is just beautiful Sher)...

Sister Friends

Somewhere across the miles

Lives a woman I’ve never met in person

Yet I know her, she knows me

Together we can share life and giggles

We are mothers of the highest form

We love deeply, worry and care

At the same resonance, about our children

We are bonded cyber soul sisters

We love teddy bears, laughing

Cookies, blogging, reading and scrabble

We like a glass of wine and a good chat

Bright clothes, shoes, and the color purple

We’re interested and care about people

Animals, music, and our families

We love celebrations, our homes

A nice dinner out and the beach

We’re passionate with liberal minds

Our memories are waning

And we giggle about aging

Children, sex and silly things

We’re partial to nice ambience

Joy, respect and flexibility

Kindness, generosity

And thoughtful hearts!

We’re current thinkers

With a youthful essence

We’ve experienced love

In all aspects

Finally after months of

Commenting and long emails

Our voices connected

It feels like we’ve been friends forever!

Oh this made me cry! You two have that sisterhood that is so rare :)
I'm glad you two found each other and that both of you know how rare this is and don't take it for granted.

Lucy this lovely acknowledgment gave me shrills of goosebumps! To see my poem about us on your blog! You're definately proof of the truly amazing people to be found in cyber space! So many connections to be cherished! Thanks for the friendship I do feel blessed to have found you, I highly respect the incredible wife and mother that you are!! I feel honored that you share my same thoughts! Can't wait until our next chat!!

Love and hugs Sherrie

Oh and I awoke to the kids giggling about this illustration of us!! They thought it was hilarious...our short legs and disproportionate bodies!! I can't say I hadn't hoped it would garner a few laughs!

What a wonderful tribute to both sisterhood and the joy of blogging! That's what I mean on the heading of my blog when I say "Blogging friends are not virtual. They are real!" Somewhere I have a host of friends. I count you as a very dear one HERE!

Yes! we need friends and sisters to share joy and success as well as support each other in sorrow and loss. we change and grow, we fail (body and mind)together, and we experience the love and acceptance that we need to thrive.
