    I had a wonderful experience today. I met up with TheBestBubby (who I think probably deserves that appellation), whom I have not seen in 38 years! As many of you know, because of chessed that SHE offered here, I came to discover that she was my long-ago close friend, with whom I had lost touch, as friends are sometimes wont to do. So I am especially makiras hatov to the

    YWN CR, for affording me the opportunity to reconnect with her.

    Thank you TBB, for a wonderful visit this afternoon! You are stillas beautiful inside and out as you were the last time I saw you!(Hopefully it will not be another 38 years before we get together to shmooze as we did today).

    The Goq, it was an amazing Hashgocha Protis (perhaps you were not in the CR when this happened). TheBestBubby offered to daven for people in the CR (for shidduchim, refuos, etc) at a Gadol’s Kever when she went. She said that anyone who wanted, could post the Jewish names and she listed a fax number (obviously the Mods allowed the post). There was some confusion in the receipt of the faxes, which was sorted out, but someone received an e-mail (I think) from the faxee(?) that he thought it was an error that he was sent the fax (as I said this was all immediately straightened out), and the person who received that e-mail (another CR poster)forwarded it to me, as she knew I sent a name. If you are not sufficiently muddled by now, I recognized the very unusual last name of the person who sent the e-mail to the CR poster, and I

    e-mailed him back to find out if he was related to the person I once knew. Yes he was. He was my friend’s brother-in-law and she turned out to be the chessed-filled TheBestBubby! She and I were able to reconnect, and finally meet in person again after having been in touch this past year on a very regular basis. I totally credit the CR for being the catalyst for this reunion. And clearly TBB, for being such a special person.

    Thank you Always Here, for your lovely comment.

    Nice story. I would call it seeing RL friends in the CR, though. 🙂

    I though it was also cute that in one of your profiles, you listed your occupation as “Best Bubby EVER”.
