Thank You to my “online friends!” (30 days to be Thankful, day 22)

Thank you to my “online” friends

Is there a word for people you feel close to over the internet, but have never met?
(Jason’s response of “Friend” is accurate!) This letter is for my friends who I’ve never met in person, but who hold a special place in my heart.

Tiffany & Gord- Thank you for being so open about your lives, for sharing. I love reading about all of your adventures, and your blog posts often make me smile. Your kids are amazing, and getting the future picture of life with boys is also awesome.

Nicole A- Your children are adorable. I love how sweet your posts are, and I the love you feel for your kids is evident with every post you make. I love your pictures, and the pics your husband posts as well. I feel like if we could sit down and let our kids have a playdate it would be epic. Thank you for all your posts!

Jason- I love the links you share, and I love your notes about customers. I really enjoy your point of view and your general love of fandom. Thank you!!!!

Jake- I feel like I know you in person sometimes because of our mutual friends. Thank you for making my friends happy, and for being a stalwart friend to them. I’m thankful for your posts, and wish you could come for a visit someday!

Brianna- Sometimes I think that you and I, if we lived close together, would be the best friends. I love reading about your family, and your husband. I wish I could give you a hug

Nicole T- I am thankful for your staunch defense of vaccines. You and your family are a comfort to me, and I thank you.

And so many more. I love you guys. I love how the internet has brought us all together and I love the peek into your lives. To know that people living all over the globe care about me, and that I care about them, it’s an amazing feeling. I’m so sorry that I don’t have time to thank each and every one of you. Thank you for every post, for every picture, for every article shared and website linked. I am grateful to you all.

And thank you to everyone still on LJ, who still posts, who comments. You all rock!
