Thank you for Being a Friend :)

Thankful-Thursday1

Today, I am thankful for my Internet Friends.

Years ago I discovered the world of internet forums (forae? Fori?) and over time have made some great friends. Most of them I’ve actually met in person and some that I still hope to meet.

Running opened a whole new world of friends to meet. Running at Disney even more. Love to bake? Yep! Crafty? I’m not but love reading about your stuff!

When I need advice, I tend to turn to you, my invisible friends, for a first cut at it. When I have good news to share, who hears it first? Well..usually my dad… THEN my internet friends 🙂 Bad news? Eh…I tend to keep that to myself!!

I love that I can run into you at Walt Disney World and you immediately know who I am! And, that I know who you are. Though, I feel a little like a stalker at some times…but don’t we all!! (At the Wine and Dine weekend my friends (also, actually, internet friends!) were surprised that there were people outside of our group who knew who I was!! And that I knew people well enough to hug them in public!!)

I love that the internet makes the world a little smaller and opens so many doors. And I am thankful for that. I am thankful that I am able to hear different viewpoints and understand why you think that way. I am also thankful to hear people who share my viewpoint and know that I’m not alone.

Thanks to the interwebs, I’m not the only one who thinks that, or feels that, or wants that. I’m thankful for the people the internet has brought into my life, for whatever reason they’re there.

And, the internet has let me get back together with people from my past – family and friends. I am thankful that the internet keeps me up to date on what goes on in their lives. So, while technically they aren’t “Internet Friends” they are still friends I keep in touch with, or have gotten back in touch with, because of the internet.

So if you ever hear me talk about my invisible friends, or my friends in the computer now you know! They’re all my wonderful internet friends!!

November is a big month for giving thanks, but we should stop and think every day what we are thankful for. It makes life a lot nicer!
