"Hi, Tricia? I hope you don't think I'm stalking you... I know you don't know me. I just wanted to say..."
"Excuse me, ma'am, I just need to introduce myself. I recognized you from across the restaurant. I read your blog. I'm an oncology nurse; all the patients on my floor read your blog, too."
"Hi... are you Tricia? Oh, I knew it. I just wanted to say..."
I am truly honored by these conversations. People who are reading, listening, thinking, feeling, and praying for us. People who feel compelled to say so.
It's a humbling honor. Truly.
In case you see me, and in case you'd like to say hello, please do.
I'd love to meet you.
