I'm starting to hate Friendster! I'm starting to receive birthday greetings now from my friends and yes, I'm delighted and despite my glamorous birthday gifts list at my Thursday Thirteen entry yesterday all I need are prayers, well-wishers and people who would remember my special day. Sis kurdapya is right a bunch of flowers and chocolates from the one I love will top my list and Bro.Mel your prayers are more than enough for me. Those are just my wishlist, the ones I'm working for to buy for myself but of course, it would even be great to receive any of those things as a gift.
Okay, back on the reason why I'm starting to hate Friendster... I'm not in the habit of viewing my friends profile, I just don't have the time anymore. But as a courtesy, I thanked those who greeted me and I had a chance to update myself on what's going on with their lives through their profiles and suddenly I realized that everything and everyone has changed. They're moving on and I feel so left out. I was reminded that my life is on hold because of lupus and the uncertainty is suddenly making me sad!
Last night I was watching the first episode of my favorite Grey's Anatomy and these words really hit me...
"Change; we don’t like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming.
We either adapt to change or we get left behind.
And it hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn’t is lying.
But here's the truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same.
And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good.
Oh, sometimes change is everything."
-- Meredith Grey
It's sometimes odd how God answers your prayers and a quote from a TV show really spoke to what I've been asking God...
