It's hard to explain to a non-blogger...the love you get from bloggers. The people you meet in blogland that you've never met face-to-face but yet you know. My husband doesn't understand it when I say "...my friend from the internet.." His standard reply goes something like "Well, they're not reeeaaaally your friend...." My defiant response - with hands placed on hips - "Ummm, YES, THEY ARE! "
Sometimes you bloggers know more about what's going on in my life than the people who are actually physically present in my life. The love and connected-ness (I just made that word up) I feel is extraordinary. You share with me my ups and downs and in turn, open that window for me to see into yours. What a gift.
Whenever I have time, I catch up on my blog reading. I don't always leave a comment but rest assured I am there. I think we are all like that to some degree. Take for instance when a fellow blogger is having a hard time or asks for a prayer....watch the comment section and you will see a sudden mass of them. We swoop in when we are needed - and happy to do so. It is a community filled with people who have the ability to connect without the benefit of a hug, or a familiar voice or sometimes even a face. It is a connection that cannot be defined by physicality. It is much deeper than that.
Thank-you for being a friend!
