    ~Good thing it’s simple math!! heehee 🙂 ~

    Did you know I have many, many of our email exchanges saved just so I can reread them at a later time and remember all that we’ve shared over the years?!! I totally agree that there is nothing quite like the written word on a piece of tangible paper that you can feel and smell and SAVE! While technology has made many aspects of staying connected much easier, the beauty of a simple letter in your hand seems to be lost – as we are losing the simple joy of holding a book in lieu of a computer tablet or smartphone.

    I treasure too greatly our friendship to ever not want to save our correspondence in whatever form it comes. Looking back shows our history and the growth of our friendship like nothing else could capture. I so look forward to the day when we can meet face-to-face again. Until then, know that you are not only in my heart, I have your words to cherish forever!

      Tamela, you have always been very near and dear to my heart. I love you and consider you as part of my family. Thank you for the gift of your friendship through all of these years. We’ve been through a lot together, sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly. But, through it all, we’ve conquered it all together! I treasure our talks on the phone and emails we’ve exchanged. One day soon I hope to read a book that you’ve written based on those emails as you once talked about doing. I am so incredibly pleased that you’re now writing for Light Love Hope, too!
