for some mystical reason, i tend to cross paths with pretty amazing people on a fairly regular basis. case in point: annie parsons.
when i was living in norway, i ran across a blog, linked from a friend’s blog. i read the blog regularly and was amazed at the courage and wit displayed through the writer’s words. as we often do when people dare to be vulnerable and have a gift of communicating, i found myself resonating with annie. but in the midst of a deluge of transition and changes, reading blogs did not make it on my to-do list.
earlier this year, i was sitting at church and that awkward time of greeting people, asking their names and forgetting their faces came and went. but during that time i recognized a face, and for the life of me could not remember how i knew her. i racked my brain and realized that it was annie from the blog world! we chatted and decided to get together. what little time i have spent with annie has been an encouragement and honestly, a breath of fresh air.
