Dear friend who discovered my blog

I suppose I couldn’t keep it a secret forever….this little cyber world of mine. Somebody was bound to find it, innocently reading a letter and realising that the story is kind of similar to someone they know and getting the shock of your life when you realise the letters you’ve been reading, all correspond with what’s been happening in one of your best friends’ lives. So you did the decent thing and asked me if the letters were mine. And as we all know I’m a really, really bad liar…….so voila! One of my best friends has discovered my blog. Congratulations friendster!

I’m not going to ask you to keep the blog and the substance of my letters a secret. It might sound crazy, but by now I know you well enough to realise that you respect and love me too much to divulge this delicious bit of information to the rest of the world. I realise that there is no need to ask you, because you would never expose my private thoughts to anybody else, unless I told you to.

Initially the letter was only going to be a little note of welcome. A short little letter to invite you even further into the little world of Ruby and the people I’ve come to know during my time on blogger. But as I’m writing this I realise that I have so much that I would like to say to you that I might as well list some of them here:)

I’d like to thank you for being a good friend, a confidant, a shoulder to cry on, a soundboard to rant and rave at and a good hug giver:) Not only this, but you’ve given me the opportunity to help you, be there for you, give you advice, give positive criticism when necessary, be your shoulder to cry on and most of all become a close friend in the spiritual realm. The power of which should never be underestimated;)

Over the past year you and your husband have become really good friends of mine. You were one of the firsts to know about the whole Jack situation. And yes, your squeals of delight were much appreciated. You’ve had to keep more than one secret on my behalf, and I applaud you on doing so without fail.

I realise that as a friend I can sometimes be very harsh in giving advice and criticism. But you’ve always accepted it with a smile and tried to implement it in your life. Realising that it isn’t given in a hurtful manner, but simply because I love you and I want the best for you.

If I had all day to write this letter I still wouldn’t have enough time to tell you just how special you are. I do however realise that not all my blogger friends would appreciate a letter as long as that, so I’ll end it simply by saying that you are an awesome friend. I pray that we will be friends for many years to come and that we’ll still have plenty of adventures to share.

  7. Sweet Rubz!!I must be honest… my blog is no secret, but there is only friend that actually reads it…Blondie 2 :-)I would find it weird if my mates had to read it, even though they know everything. Weird huh? I would feel shy! hahahah!!!

  8. hello ruby’s friend!!!i’m so glad she told you she found you, i have friends and family who read me- though mine was never really totally anonymous and i told my mom and sister about it quicklike coz i wanted someone to read me dammit!!!ahem…sorry.i believe you have a bone you’d like to pick?

  9. Now the ripple effect begins…your friends will find out…you’ll see! And they’ll comment…sometimes in absolutel shock…sometimes because you’ve overshared…or they may just roar with laughter & compliment you on your lovely writing skills!Sweet though :)On a completely different note…where the hell have you been & what’s happening with that hijacker dude…we want info & we want comments/ your opinions sweet cheeks…no fair!

  10. blondie – lol….well, only one of my mates have found it as yet……and she’s safe as a vault:)Angel – Thanx for the sweet welcome:) that is on my friend’s behalf anyway:) oh never mind, the bone aint very important:)KaB – I do believe I have now officially been admonished for absence….will try to do better promise. As mentioned before, my absence is not entirley jack’s fault…it’s also as a result of the fact that we cannot access blogger at work anymore…so i have to remember to bring my little modem to work….and somehow i always manage to forget…but i’m busy making a comeback, don’t you worry hun!
