World pulse: A friendship bridge to cross all borders

My feeling crosses the boundary when I meet them in a person. It’s like not other than a dream! Since I registered my name in World pulse it’s in 2009 to till date I made 180 friend to friend list and some have been requested. Among 180 I met 2 of them in a person in person. I met just 2 of them but I feel that I met whole World pulse family
At very first I met is Tuula Fai, few months ago. She is very honest, sweet and caring. I felt so good after meeting her. She is an author, a journalist, a healer and a good person having so honest friendship feeling. Meeting with Tuula fai meant me a lot. She encourages me write, to do things what makes me happy, she pampers me when I cry. Now we are apart but we both do share a lot about our family concerns and that has further fastened us like as a family.
Yesterday was another day I met other caring sister from World pulse and she is Stella Paul She was so busy almost no time but we both made it to meet each other though it’s short hour. I am still feeling her warm hug on my shoulder; I am still hearing her gratifying voice calling “Oh! Usha” after seeing me in dim light at a Resort. We did not care others watching us we just sharing our sisterhood with giving each other continuous hug. We did not feel like we are meeting first time, we sensed like we are familiar since long. We talked about VOF, World pulse and yes obviously about family and this made us felicitous indeed.
I would like to thank to World Pulse. I could not make my life so happiest without such a loving and caring sisters/ friends from across the oceans. It’s like dream to meet, to share personal feeling with persons from the globe in a manner that we are attached from long before. Hence World Pulse is like a friendship bridge to cross the border across the globe.
I hopefully am waiting to meet others too.

So happy!

Sister Usha

It's almost midnight and I just returned to India. I had a very tough journey as due to technical snag my flight was delayed by several hours. I was so sleepy, I didn't even feel like eating. But then suddenly I thought of checking the world pulse site (strange, huh?) and then I saw your post. And I felt, for an instant, all my tiredness vanished!

I can't believe that we met the first time yesterday. I really feel we have known each other for long,long time. And I know the real reason: in this forum we have shared so much of our pain and happiness and dreams, it has brought us very close.

So, now I have a sister in Kathmandu and here I am sending her one more hug! Love!

Bravo! Hello, Usha!

I am so excitged to get to know you. My name is Anna and I have just stayed up almost all night to finish an effectiveness evaluation for an amazing course I got to take.
And because I am up so early or late I got to see Rachael's email right away -- I hope you will be pleased to learn we have been matched, along with Vision Mentor Katherine Holt.

I certainly look forward to learning more about you....and first I am going to sleep...a little, before a big day.

This is bound to be an exciting adventure.

And most of all congratulations for being a World Pulse finalist. That means that you absolutely rock and that you get to share your light with so many. Congratulations a million fold!

Love is all there is, and we will let it shine, the three of us,

Baba Anna
