Thankful Thursday

I think we all know how hectic life can get and it is sad when it gets so hectic that you lose touch with people who care about you.  That is how I have been over the past week or so - busy with stuff that couldn't wait or someone else couldn't do.  But in amongst all the chaos that has been my life, there were two amazing women who took the time to contact me to find out if I was OK because they hadn't seen me around the social media for a couple of days.  To say that I was absolutely blown away when I read their messages of care and concern would be an understatement - tears popped into my eyes as I was reading.  These are two ladies whom I have never met but who took the time to find out if I was OK.

This post is not a grouch because other people didn't wonder where I was.  This post is not about looking for people to check on me if I am quiet for a while.  This post is to honour my two friends for caring enough about me, someone they haven't  met, to get in touchto see how things were in my world.  I have family who have never done anything like that !!!!!

I am deeply touched by the support that I have found, not only from them, but from all my social media friends.  While some people may think it strange that others make friends over the internet who they may or may not meet, I love the fact that there are people out there who care enough to take time out of their hectic lives to check up on someone else.  Who think of others and not just themselves.  Who I hope one day to meet and give BIG hugs to because their thoughts mean more than they will ever know.
And, because it is Thursday I am going to link in with Kate Says Stuff for Thankful Thursday because I am truly thankful to have such wonderful friends !


  1. I don't think it's strange at all to make friends over the internet! I think it's so great!

    'meeting'such wonderful caring people has been the best part abut blogging for me!

  2. I think if you called your family every night and then you didn't call for 3 nights they would def be worried. It's just social media has us in each others face all the time, and you really notice when someone you chat with a lot is not around. The scariest part was not knowing how to find out if something had happened! I'm so glad everything was "ok" because I'm not sure what we'd have done next! It is not so strange (to me) to have such close online friends. My hubby and I met online! ;-)

  3. I don't think it's strange to meet friends over the internet. They prove to be some of the very best!
