One step in the door and it was like being home. Had I not known these people all my life???? Sure seemed like I have.
This comes as no surprise to many of you I am sure. You have traveled distances to meet your on line friends to find with the first smile, the first great hug, this was not a new friend but a friend whom you had already given a large part of your heart. It seems like this continues to happen with each friend I meet in person. They are special on line. When you meet you find they are even more special. I find myself so comfortable... it seems as though we have been together for years and it is very easy to talk with them (a few might wish I weren't as comfortable and wouldn't talk quite as much) It is great to listen too... to hear their voice and to learn even more about them.
It has been noticed, I am sure.... these people are here for you in times of stress and sorrow as well as happy and fun times. Here.... ready to love and let you know you are not alone. They can bring a smile to your heart and laughter to your lips when you think you have neither left in you.
If you had told me some years back I would have a family spread all over the world... I might have thought you were somewhat delusional. What little I knew!
How I pray I can be the kind of friend to each of you others have been to me here.
We have a great Multiply Family... My Family here is starting to see the love and wonder of my Multiply Family. (There was a time when they thought anyone you met from the internet only had mugging or murder on their mind in person).
Could anyone ask for more??? I don't think so.... I think you all are the greatest... It makes me happy to see you interact lovingly with each other.... to laugh freely... to bring out the best in each other. The feeling which the love and friendship brings is indescribable.
Each of you have been so kind to me even when I hid out... thank you and after spending the last weekend with several of our Multiply Family.... I came away feeling more sure of how blessed we all are to have each other. How I love you and pray for much love and happiness for each of you... Thank you for being there and thanks for being you!!!
