Something has happened.
Either I am:(a) the beneficiary of an amazing burst of friendship-love from two dear friends across the sea as a result of a strange twist of luck from the universe and/or lottery
(b) I am finally being rewarded for being mildly to mostly average
(c) need endless amounts of encouragement as I am virtually a vat of need (this answer is right no matter what)
(d) God laid it on the hearts of these two ladies to speak truth, love, loveliness, and wonderful selflessness to me.
I chose all the above.
Thank you God for friends.
