Every now and then Facebook helps bring about a moment where you think okay, this site has a lot of faults but this is why I put up with them.

Someone I knew from back in the day casually mentioned a first name of her friend and a moment of their shared history in the context of I don’t even remember what, because I was just sitting there stunned–wait–do you mean..?!  Where do I find…?!  I have wanted for SO long…!

And there she was.  I sent her a note.

Twenty-four years after our younger daughter’s birth I finally got a chance to tell this person my husband and I both so much admired growing up the news that we had named our child after her because we wanted our daughter to be as kind a person as she is.

About time.

Hooray! No coincidences, of course…

Yes, I know exactly what you mean. And sometimes, just knowing that certain person is out there doing fine is all you want. (But my community is still Ravelry!)

That’s why I like Facebook. I could do without most of the games and garbage. . .but I LOVE the connection, even when it’s only through cyber-space!

I always find these connections surprising. And it has happened to me more times than I can count. I believe I’ve mentioned one or two on my blog.

Out of my mind.  Back in five minutes.

Small moments like that make the struggle worthwhile!

One more instance, I’m thinking, where you added sunshine to someone’s day. 🙂
