I am so excited at meeting June my Jamaican Heroine, at long last, that I am starting this post even before I leave for London. Or don’t you find this exciting?
Haha, oh, following series one, I should have met June by now right? Ok, now to :
I had hoped to meet June after I land in London and get to spend the night with her (hoping to get some her strong spirit while we slept) but my flight was not only a late night, but the computers at London Gatwick airport chose that very night to stop working. This caused a five hour wait to go through border control.
I didn’t lose hope and we quickly agreed on having dinner on Sunday, thus guaranteeing my finally getting to eat a real Jamaican dish. Trust me to arrive 30 minutes before time!
is all what she tells us in her blogs and much more! It is hard not to fall in love with her. I believe fervently that I walk by faith and not by sight especially when it comes to human relationships. Yes I am an extrovert too and many a time, I have sensed if that relationship or person will be a + or a – (sure you understand).
She is so far the only friend and heroine of mine to get series in my blog and this should tell you more.
We had such pleasant discussions and if she had never told me, I would have thought she was my elder sister’s age mate.
Oh my, June is a woman of faith. She is such a strong woman who has been through so much too in life and who is leaning in.
We may not share the same religious affiliations and passions but that doesn’t matter to me. Her believing in taking giant steps of faith like leaving a ‘teaching job’ to become a full time copy writer and blogger, is courageous, fascinating, inspirational and motivating!
Yes, I am definitely so proud to have met June online, to have reached out to her, to have kept our friendship going, and to have visited her.
I was honoured above all to offer my dear June an autographed copy of my book. She was duly acknowledged therein and wrote a blurb for the back cover at such short notice and with no hesitation at all. She encouraged and still encourages me, gives me valuable advice and was even willing to proof read my book if I had wanted to bother her with that mindful of her hectic schedule.
Dear gentle readers and followers of mine, as we grow older, we learn a lot of lessons in life and meet all sort of people. Amongst those I have met in my blogging life and even out of it, June stands out. I sincerely wish we all get to have such a friend in life, who even if they don’t necessarily agree with all we do, will not let that mare our friendship.
Do you have a similar experiences you may want to share? What do you think about my series on June my Jamaican Heroine?
