Maria Shriver says that she is "humbled by love" since she and her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, announced their shocking split. After receiving several words of support, she has thanked her fans.
"Thank you for all the kindness, support and compassion. I am humbled by the love. Thank you," she wrote on her Twitter.
The messages that she is reading must be so heartwarming to her during this difficult time. It is amazing that people whom you've never even met can provide such a great support system when you need them the most. This is something that social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook have achieved with ease.
While Maria and Arnold have not confirmed that they will be getting a divorce, many people suspect that's what will happen next. The couple have to do what is right for the both of them, and just knowing that people care about them might be enough to ease the pain, even for a little while.
