Where I live, April is filled with sunshine and flowers, as well as clouds and rain showers. On the lovely days, I give thanks for the blossoms and light, and on the gloomy days, I give thanks for the rain that is nourishing new life.
April schools me to celebrate what is, what exists now, rather than bemoan the dayís circumstances. I find myself applying this philosophy to my friends, too. Sometimes, we donít see each other or e-mail or talk as often as we would like. Rather than becoming frustrated or resentful of this, I try to remember how lucky I am to have people who care about me, and I look forward to the less hectic times when we can keep in touch.
If you find yourself with less time for your e-Buddy, please let them know. I always helps when we understand the reason for a break in communication.
Thank you for spreading the light of friendship to your e-Buddy.
All the best,
