Friends. Are they "real" to you? They are to me.

I've stated many times, in many places, that I take my friendships to heart. Both in real life, and on the internet. None of my friends are "fake" to me. When they hurt, I hurt. When they rejoice, I rejoice. When they are angry, I try my best to ease the anger and help them triumph over it.

All that I am asking is the same kindness, love, and respect in return.

Yesterday, myself, Facebook, the internet, People With Disabilities, a Fiance, and five children and a host of friends (both IRL and on the net), and extended family lost a true gem.

Marta Wolf passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. She was a unique soul. She too carried her friendships in to her heart. And she too lent a hand, a word, a smile, and her heart to you when you needed it.

I have lost a good friend. We only got to speak on the phone one time. But we had a wonderful conversation. Laughs were a-plenty that day. That is one memory I will truly treasure. And in turn, it will help me to keep her in my memory.

Also, this goes to show just how powerful a tool that the internet CAN BE. And it shows the POSITIVE side that more often than not, happens. Friendships are not to be taken lightly. Even through the computer screen. THERE ARE REAL PEOPLE on the other side of a website. They have feelings. And they have a heart.

When used correctly, for what a social media site is intended for, the web can be a BEAUTIFUL place to be. But when used in a manner only to hurt and maim another HUMAN BEING, then it is a tool of hurt and violence.

So, Marta, rest in peace, my friend. You were, and always will be a treasured soul to the many lives that you have touched. We love you, and will greatly miss your humor, your love, and your smile.





"Shout To The Lord"

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

My Jesus, My Savior,
Lord, there is none like You;
All of my days
I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength;
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.
Nothing compares to the promise I have
Nothing compares to the promise I have in you
