Here’s to share & care! May 28, 2007Posted by Arun Rajagopal in Conversations.
I wasn’t planning to blog today with the tons of packing I got to do, but I hopped over to CK’s blog and read about the truly magnificent way in which a group of bloggers (Drew McLellan, Lewis Green, Luc Debaisieux (Mindblob), David Reich & Valeria Maltoni) came together at New York during the Memorial Day weekend to honour a great person (CK’s mom) & celebrate their friendship. They were joined by the best wishes and prayers of 20 other bloggers from around the world.
It’s so heart-warming for me, sitting thousands of miles away from CK’s ‘momma tree’, and be so excited about the magical power of relationships. I kind of miss not being in that group, in the company of such great people who care and share. But, at the same time, I can imagine being there, at least in my thoughts.
Suddenly, blogging is not all about sharing knowledge, enhancing your social connections or gaining competitive advantages for your business, it’s about to reaching out to people far and wide, being there for them and never missing out a chance to make them feel special, showing them you care. It’s all about discovering the power of relationships and celebrating friendships.
Someday, I’ll get to New York and visit the ‘Momma Tree’ and I’ll get a silver star on a little chain and put it around the tree. I’ve already got the chain, now it’s just the question of getting there… but then I truly believe that God works on all your desires even before you start wishing for them. 🙂
CK, her mom and their blogger friends all belong to a truly blessed group. My prayers and best wishes are all with you. (Huge Hug). Cheers!
