I was just talking with a friend of mine online about buying gifts for people that you only know via the internet and have never met in person. It brought up a memory that I hadn't thought about in a very long time and it brought tears to me eyes. I thought I'd share it with you all since I don't think I ever have. I'm not going to name names because I'm not sure how he'd feel about it. I will send him a PM and find out whether he's okay with me mentioning him, though. But, I think any person that has come across this man loves and adores him. He exudes beauty and love in ways I've never seen before. He and I were close for a long time, and I considered him a best friend at one point. I was able to open up to him and talk to him about things that I'd never been able to do with anyone else in my real or online life. I was going through a rough patch a few years ago, serious financial troubles. I was coming to the realization that I wasn't going to be able to afford to buy my son a single Christmas present. That's a very desperate feeling as a parent. I was discussing this situation with my dear LPSG friend and he did something that I completely didn't expect. But as much as I didn't expect it, I should have known that it was something he would have done because he's one of the few people I know with a heart big enough to do so. He gave me the log-in information to his Amazon.com account where he had uploaded some gift cards that he had received for his birthday or something. He told me to pick out whatever I wanted for my son and to charge it to those gift cards. I was completely speechless. It brought tears to my eyes then and it still does now. I was able to find used versions of some of the video games my son wanted and tried to keep my order on the cheap. I still don't think the thank-you's I gave him are enough to make him understand how much that meant to me. Seeing my sons sparkling blue eyes and cheesy grin that Christmas morning as he opened his presents made everything right in the world. To my friend: I know we don't speak much anymore as neither of us spend much time on this forum and we live in different countries, but I still love you like a best friend and a brother. I hope you are doing well. I keep you in my thoughts.
