I feel like I may have touched on this at some point in the past. That is the trouble with blogging - after awhile it can become easy to duplicate topics. However, in this particular case I feel that you can never express too much love or gratitude.
I want to take a moment to give thanks for the friendships I have in my life. Many people I have known since childhood and are very precious to me. Some of you are new - and some I have never even met face-to-face, yet you have been on the journey with me through social media.
Quite simply - a friend does not need to be in the same room with you, to show you love and support.
I know that I am rich in my friendships. Many of whom have been with me through life's ups and downs. Births, deaths, good times, horrible times, raising children, finding love, surviving heartbreak, special occasions, milestones, lending a helping hand when times got rough, lifting me up in prayer when needed, taking moments out of your life to wish me a happy birthday, or other holiday greeting.
We've shared special moments, good-hearted laughter, some over a glass of wine, and some in a fb message. When spirit comes together and unite, is there any other light as bright?
I want to let all of my friends know - whether we've know each other 40 years, or a month, I value you. I appreciate you. And I love you.
