NOTE: I was away, visiting faraway friends and family, when this post was intended to be scheduled. I was unable to post it, and the two following it. Over the course of this week, I’ll be posting my “Missing Four” Love Is In Da Blog posts, as written, and resuming my typical posting schedule. As always, I hope you enjoy!
Today’s #LoIsInDaBl prompt from Bee is “faraway friends”. I have many friends, all over the world. Some I’ve made through unschooling events, or during our travels, or while working at various places around the country –Grand Canyon friends, Oregon friends, Yellowstone friends…the internet is a wonderful way to keep in touch with them, so that we can remain friends in a way that we might not be, without.
I have other faraway friends that I met online. Some are far enough removed from me that I am never likely to meet them in person…and yet, with Internet access, we can connect, help one another, laugh and cry and grow together…
But there are other times when I get the privilege of meeting friends I’ve only known online. This week has that potential; and, by the time it’s over, some people who’ve been only online friends, until now, will be attached to faces, voices, and memories. Yes, within days we’ll be faraway friends again, but the memories and the new knowing will remain.
And, for the friends who are still faraway – there’s always the chance that life will carry us closer together…
And, if not, distance doesn’t define friendship – friends do! =)
Do you have faraway friends? Why not take a step to connect or reconnect today?
