So I did a brief blog walk this morning and I kept finding a familiar theme. Friends.
Mondays with Molly posted an article about the decline in close friendships and throws out the challenge to everyone to:
"Reach out to a friend today. Is there someone who you would like to have as a closer friend? Why not invite them over for coffee/tea? Is it an internet friend? They can be just as close .. write them a note. Share something with them that’s been going on in your life, ask them to share how they are doing .. I would bet they would enjoy an old fashioned closer friendship just as much as you would! Try it .. you have nothing to lose but a close friend to gain."
So here I go:
To a friend who needs to be reminded that she is loved (you know who you are) I wish you many friends that will remind you today how wonderful you are.
To a friend that has recently moved away, I promise to call so you won’t be all alone in your new home.
To the friend that I blabbered on to that finally asked why- It was brain leakage- thanks for listening.
To those that set well wishes and concerns for the puppy, he is fine and back to "normal". He even got a new toy. Thaks for your concerns.
To all the friends I have made in Spaces through the past year- Thank you for being my "community".
To my blogging friend King Tom, thank you for the sneding me the following:
