This is my love letter to my friend Margaret.
I was all set in writing down a bitter sounding blog post. Mostly about how my life is pain blah blah blah. And then a blog post, with a header that says Big News!! comes up on my screen, from my blog mom’s blog and I knew that this post is going to be different.
Margaret is a light. I don’t know her in person but you get the feeling (from her posts and comments) that she is a girl down to listen to anything. Having a bad day at work? She’ll pour you a glass of wine as you rant on. Boyfriend/Girlfriend not treating you right? She’ll hate him/her out of principle. Bike messenger ran over your new flats without apologizing? She’ll loudly call him a “jerk!” even if she’s in the middle of a very serious conversation over the phone. Maybe I’m exaggerating. But to me, that’s Margaret.
It’s weird sometimes how you feel so (brace yourself for this melodramatic BS) connected with someone that you haven’t even had a real conversation with. How you feel so attached to a person you’ve never met before. How one can make you feel better just by the osmosis of their (I’m sorry for using this) good vibes. But thank you Margaret for sharing your miracle to the world, because now, I feel so much better. The world is not as crappy as it seemed a few minutes ago.
Today is Valentines Day. And I will be spending it alone. Again. But by just being here (in WordPress) and seeing all of your posts about your loved one makes me feel better. Or jealous. I can’t really decide. But there is love. And that’s the point I’m trying to make.
Congratulations Margaret. Dare I say I’m a big sister now?
P.S. I can start calling you MILF now right??
