Sometimes in life we are gifted with the right person at precisely the right time. Jacqueline is an example of that person for me. Jacqueline and I met in an online university program, and have not (yet!) met in person. This has not impeded my bond with her, for we are part of the same tribe. She gets me. I get her. I wasn’t cognizant of how much I needed Jacqueline – it’s not that I *felt* that I was struggling in life…it was more that no one else could quite understand the (often lonely) journey I put myself on pursuing a Masters degree online (not only do you never met classmates in person, but they also changed every five weeks).
I have never connected with someone on such a deep level that I have never actually spent physical time with. I look forward to my lengthy Friday phone dates with Jacqueline, and we are never at a loss for conversation. I greatly admire, love, and appreciate this newfound “weirdo” of my tribe. Jacqueline is wise, witty, and kind….and she also introduced me to one of my all-time favorite books: Shantaram. (such a beautiful read ?).
