We live in an amazing age. We can now connect with anyone in the world with this device called the computer. We can also form very real connections with people, real or imagined.
I remember a few years back, I found the YouTube channel of a beautiful young wife and mother named Christina Newman. What attracted me to her channel was her passion for eating raw. At the time I was contemplating going raw and was looking at any and everything that has to do with the raw food diet. Christina was a beautiful bubbly young lady who was struggling with her weight and was gaining the victory day by day and I could identify with that struggle.
After a year or two of watching her and following her and following her blog, I was sad to find out that this young mother had an aggressive form of cancer. As a Christian, I immediately began to go into prayer mode and would keep up with her from time to time. Well recently, I thought about her and to my dismay, a quick search online brought up the information about her going into hospice and dying leaving behind a husband, older daughter and very young daughter.
I did not know Christina, but as I said, being online can make you feel very connected to people you have never met. I was devastated and hurt as though she was a member of my own family.
I am so sorry for the loss of this family. A beautiful soul! Rest in Peace Christina Newman and God bless your surviving family!
