Today I’m thankful for friends. The last couple of days have been very emotional for me, but the support from my friends has been amazing. What’s even more amazing is that I haven’t actually met many of the people I count as friends.
The Internet is an amazing thing. Sure, there are negatives, but for me, the positives far outweigh the negatives. I wouldn’t be who I am as a writer without critique partners. Nor would I have gotten through the last few days without the support of people who have shown me love and support, even though we’ve never met face-to-face.
That said, I can’t forget the friends I do know on a personal level. Without them, my life would not be the same. So, wether or not I’ve ever hugged your neck, know that you are special to me. Know that you’ve enriched my life and helped me through some though times. People freak out about the invasion the Internet has been in their lives. I look at it as a God thing, and thank him for the wonderful people he’s brought into my life.
