May I have your attention, please?

I have a friend who used to read this blog regularly. I loved that she did, because she complimented me on my writing and always gave me an ego boost. Her opinion means a lot to me.

But she moved away -- far away -- just before I moved back to Minnesota.

I know very little about what her life must be now, where she is. I don't know if she has internet access regularly (or ever), I don't know what her days are like, although since she is in a country where women must be veiled in public and where they may not drive, I imagine that her independent spirit feels a little cooped up.

I know she has a strong husband who must be happy to be in his native land, and 3 gorgeous sons who are probably looking and sounding like natives instead of transplants.

I think about her often and I hope she is well. Others ask me if I have heard from her -- apparently she spread the word of this little blog far and wide. And somebody asked if I would put a little note on here, just in case she is reading.

You know who you are if you are reading this. Please send an email to jennifer@"mylastname".com (use my last name without the quotes -- you got that, right?) and tell me how you are. Send an email address, a snail mail address -- anything I can pass along to the many people who think of you often.

I really miss you. Hug all your boys for me, and I will hope to hear from you soon.

    I'm fine!!! I hope this reaches you since I have the SLOWEST internet in the world. we have dial up, with intermittent service, as we are in a newer neighorhood. Saudi has changed a lot, its more relaxed and even greener. Lots to tell, but wait till I see you in person, god-willing it will be soon. Nomads that we have become, it appears we will be coming back to the States. Can't wait to see you! Will contact you when we arrive, hopefully within a few weeks! Love, Kristine
