Definitely a cold-shiver-down-the-spine moment

For years I have loved the free wallpapers and ecards produced  by It is lovely, clever and whimsical. Imagine my surprise when I clicked over to see if any new images had come out, and found this:

I was even more amazed when I scrolled down and read the artist’s explanation for the piece:

“This wallpaper has a story. I received email from a young man. He wrote (extr.): ‘…I met a person in university – I am sure you are familiar with the feeling – THE person, the one that fits just right. We spent two outstanding years together. Shared a lot, discovered a lot, grew up and built plans for the future together. But fairy tales don’t last long, do they? …there is no way for her to permanently stay here with me. She has only two more weeks after which she is gone back and despite all our feelings for each other we will be thousands of kilometers away…. Both me and she have been admirers of your work, quite often being able to reflect our feelings and emotions through it. I wanted to give her something that will be significant for her and make her remember. I can only hope that you will be able to answer my plead…’ How could I not reply? I created this artwork and named it Love Knows No Boundaries – because it is true! I hope it can help them, as well as, maybe, you? Thanks for viewing!”

Wow. Just- wow. How beautiful. How timely. How completely NOT just a coincidence. I feel like God, or maybe all of my loved ones in Heaven, just reached down and gave me a huge hug. As Linda would say, the Spirit is a-movin’. It’s a perfect reminder that Joey and I aren’t facing down this whole long distance thing alone. We are never alone.
