The Best Friends in the Whole World


Today I would like to participate in Thanksgiving Thursday, hosted by Mama's Little Chick.  Every Thursday, Mama Hen counts her many blessings, and today, I would like to count mine as well.  In fact, today, I would like to stop and say thank you to all of my special friends out there who have been so incredibly thoughtful and supportive through this tough time.  (Your comments mean more to me than you can ever imagine.)

In life, I've always felt lucky to have some very sweet friends, but today I feel especially blessed...You see, my blogging friends are different.  You didn't become friends with me because we live in the same neighborhood or we went to the same school together.  You didn't become friends with me because we work together or because we're related through marriage.  You didn't become friends with me because we shared the same dorm room in college or because we both took a shade gardening class at the same local community college.

You became friends with me because you took the time to read my profile and my posts to this blog.  You became friends with me because you felt like we had a common bond, a common philosophy, when it comes to how we view our children, our families, and our lives.  You became friends with me because we enjoyed reading each other's comments and supporting each other through the ups and downs of life.

There really is something magical about blogging and creating new friends from all over the country world.  It's a relationship that begins like no other.  Here I share my daily life happenings, my achievements, my goals, my dreams, my failings, and my struggles, and it's my blog friends (not my long time friends) that read about me almost daily and give me the guidance, strength, encouragement, and/or praise to show me their friendship and support.  My blog friends can choose to read and make comments on anyone's blogs (we all know there are a lot of bloggers out there) and yet, they--you--choose to come back here.

Yes, today, I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for choosing me to be your friend.  You know more about me than most of my long time friends who only find out snippets of my life through quick phone calls or Facebook posts.  I can't describe how we first met or came into each other's world, but one thing is for sure, I'm so glad you did!

Happy Thanksgiving Thursday!
