Everyday I visit the blog of my friend, Nita. I first talked about her here.
Her husband had a serious fall and became paralyzed on August 15th of last year. I have followed their story. His struggles with his new life and her struggles being without him at home and fearing for the future. It has been up and down and Nita has shared from her soul her fears and her faith. I feel like she is my friend. I sent John cards.
John died last night from an infection. I was just devastated for her. I didn't see it coming, I thought he would finally be home in a few months. Please say a little prayer for her and their three children.
I feel an awful connect/disconnect because of the nature of the "blog world" friendship. Have any of you experienced those kind of feelings with your online friends? I have before and it's difficult to translate into reality. Who do you share it with? Is there a purpose to become attached to a digital person, even though they are real? It's a conundrum to me.
