“You know you have found a soulmate in a friend when no matter how low you get in life, they will be there whispering words of encouragement in your ears. In difficult times these whispers play a big role to lift your spirit up.”
I received these in January, totally unexpected! The package took 6 months to arrive. But there’s so much more to these gifts. I’m grateful for the friendship that stands the test of distance and time. Once a stranger, now a friend, a family, probably a sister from another lifetime.
I have always been fascinated with pen-pals, handwritten letters, and having friends who have totally different backgrounds. I don’t remember when I first met my friend, late 2017 or early 2018? Anyway, we share the same values and I feel we have the same love language as well that’s why we click right from the start.
There are times that we can’t talk as often but when we do, we never felt like there’s a distance between us. She always prays for me, encourages me, and inspires me to be a better person. I’m grateful to have found a loving and kind soul online. Sometimes it even feels like I’m closer to her than the people I’m with physically.
I hope I’ll find more people like her in my life. And that one day, we will be able to meet in person. I can imagine how wonderful that moment will be!
