I wrote a little bit the other day about friends in my ‘Things I’m Grateful For’ post.
Yesterday morning, something happened which was not very nice and a bit upsetting and I posted on Twitter that I wasn’t feeling very happy.
Within 10 minutes, four of my lovely Twitter/blog/internet friends had contacted me and emailed backwards and forwards with me during the day about what had happened, with advice, sympathy, help and empathy. Which was just what I needed and made me feel so very much better.
Two of these ladies I have met ‘in real life’, and the other two I’ve yet to meet. We are all from different places, all at different stages of our lives and our ages range across about 18 years (I’m the oldest!)
But yesterday really brought home to me that friends aren’t just people you’ve known for years since Uni, or people you work with, or even the people you meet up with for lunch/coffee/drinks with on a regular basis.
Friends come in all sorts of different guises, and my internet friends are a really important and valuable part of my circle of friends. Thank you so much for being there, girls – you all ROCK!
