Letter #8 — Internet Friend

“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Dear Internet Friend, 
 
     Several years ago, we “met” online and soon found that we had a lot in common. It started with a message about history notes for the telling of, I believe, Nancy Hart. From there, our friendship grew until we were emailing about things that really, truly matter. We would guide each other as best as we could. We did our best to answer each other’s questions.
     In September of 2010 we finally met in person. It was a wonderful weekend, though we weren’t able to be together as much as I would have liked. During that weekend, you became a full RWVA Instructor for Project Appleseed. I was so happy to be able to see that large milestone in your life!
     The summer of 2011 (almost exactly a year ago), my folks decided to send me to visit you for about a month and a half. We had many adventures, learned many things together, and had long talks (sometimes late into the night and always good). You and your family welcomed me into your lives as if I was already one of you. That is a summer that is printed in my mind very strongly. I really enjoyed the time that I had with you in person. I am thankful for all that you and your family did for me. I am so thankful for the opportunity of getting to know you, not only as a friend on the internet, but as a sister. Thank you for your true friendship. 
 
With much love, 
Your Sister in Christ 
 
P.S. You are truly beautiful, not only in appearance, but on the inside where it really matters for eternity.
