I didn’t think any of my friends read this blog.
For that reason, when I made the decision to share my experiences in the aftermath of The News (my dad losing his job), I thought I would post as I always do, thinking that, in a way, my posts would be anonymous because I’m just one of many millions(?) of bloggers out there on the web.
What I didn’t expect was for one of my friends to come across my postings. Mainly because most of my friends don’t really know that I’m a blogger.
So when I received a text message from my friend who was very concerned about what had happened, I was taken back. A part of me said, “Crap! She knows! She KNOWS!” More than that, I was relieved. “She KNOWS!” And by her knowing, it helps because I know she’s there for me, and I can talk to her.
