On November 15,2005, I received an email from a stranger with a one-word message “probando”. I am not one who will answer mails from a complete stranger but I don’t know why I replied to her with “ probando, porque? “. On the same day, I found myself reading another email from her — it turned out that she had sent herself a test message intended for her new address at ono.com but had mistakenly sent it to hotmail.com. we had exactly the same address except the extension ” .com” . we have the same first names and the same first letter of our family names. Since then, we have been corresponding with each other.
One day, something very unusual happened. She sent me a photo of her and her son on her son’s wedding day. What do I see? Her long skirt was of the same material/same color as the dress I used for my son’s wedding day !!
She is in Spain and I am in the Philippines but distance and personal responsibilities are never an excuse not to get in touch. Different kinds of friends enter and exit in our lives, this is one friend I would want to keep. Someday I would want to personally meet her, too 🙂
Una copa mi amiga, brindemos por nuestra Amistad !! un abrazo para ti!
