Earlier, (on Friday actually) I was writing a post about how 2011 was going for me and how I was doing instead of trying and the things I have actually done to met my goals. Then some news was blogged about a Australian Mummy Blogger’s husband was in ICU. Many bloggers I read rallied around. Prayers are being sent and money is being raised Australia wide and even overseas. Then I read that a different Blogger’s sister had died suddenly. I’m so very sorry for these families and I think of them often, just as I think of those who lost family members and friends recently as well.
I’ve been happily surprised at the out pouring of support for these two families. Happily surprised, I guess because I have a low opinion of human nature, of expecting people to talk the walk but not actually walk the walk. This outpouring of support has shown that people do care about others. That people can be friends without having ever met, after having just emailed or chatted on line.
So I’m opening up my life to you bloggy peeps. Will you be my friend? Are you already my friend and I have just had you in the wrong box (one labelled acquaintance or blogger instead of friend) and how do you tell the difference? How on earth does friendship work when you never actually met?
Right. Now I have once again shown how
warped interesting my thoughts on friendship are back to the subjects at hand. If you have never read Lori or Lulu, maybe you could drop by. I’m sure they would both appreciate the support.
It is probably too early for this but sometimes I think we all need this sentiment:
