Passing It On...

How many times have you received a really neat email that allows you to post your likes, your dislikes, your favorite movie of all time....??? I love these little "glimpses" of one's life. And then comes the clincher....send this on to ten of your favorite people...

Ten people.

My mind boggles.

I don't really know ten people.

I have come to the realization that I know ten people ...maybe even thirty or forty or more. But ten people I could send this nifty little email on and ask them to post their preferences..... No, I honestly cannot think of even one person to pass on this really nifty 'tell all' listing.

I don't know if I should find this disturbing or reassuring. Disturbing because I don't have a list of ten people I can automatically pass on these emails to. Reassuring because I am comfortable with not knowing ten people I could pass it on to.

I may be disturbed about my reassurance state.

I like being alone. There. I said it. I love my husband Riley dearly and I miss him while he's away. I like being comfortable in our quietness together - he reading the latest news on his laptop, me sewing away on piecing a quilt. He is comfortable in a crowd of people. I'm comfortable watching him in a crowd of people. Two halves make a whole ... and God knew His stuff when he put us together.

So - when you receive one of these emails that ask you pass it on to ten other people, know that I am happy I'm one of your ten people That makes me smile. But know that I don't have the ability to do the same.....nor do I feel the compulsion to find ten people to pass it on to.

I quilt.

I KNOW (!) you and you know dozens of folks. Dozens.

You can't think of even one person - not one? Not even me.

You have wounded me. Deeply. Very deeply.

At least you miss me (YEA!). Our quietness together .... what about the NON quiet times together?

BTW - I miss you terribly.

Love you - RileyD, nwJ
