gratitude 2....

today i am grateful for you. for all my bloggy friends who have inspired me so much and have become my virtual friends - there are some of you (you know who you are) who have become good friends to me. lately i've been a little remiss - i've found it hard to keep up with blog reading and commenting and i've definately been a little slack on the posting front but please know that i'm still thinking of you lots! there was a time in my life when i felt a little isolated and at times a little lonely and then i found all of you and life turned around a bit. now i'm lucky to have found a friend (that will be another gratitude post later) who lives nearby and has two boys the same age as mine and we are all good friends - but maintaining friendships takes time and that time has to come from somewhere - hence the lack blogging.

today i was lucky enough to have coffee with leanne at cibos. the weather was warm and sunny and it was so lovely to catch up. she made me the loveliest gift which i promise to photograph and post about very soon - i would have done it today but my batteries ran out and my time ran out :( - stay tuned though!

so to all of you - here in adelaide, australia or overseas - thank you.

I hear ya! I'm becoming the same. It's harder for me to maintain in real life friendships due to being on a farm. Blogging friends are becoming dear to me too and are wonderful supportive friends. :)I'm sure your friends know who they are and feel appreciated. :)

the connections that can happen here in the blogging community are amazing, and I am so happy for you in regards to meeting your new friend who lives near by..and yes, maintaining friendships does take time but is worth the effort :)
i hope you have a lovely weekend,

I loved this post. I think all of us blogging-types know exactly where you're coming from! I have had a crazy-busy week and haven't been near the computer for most of it. It happens to all of us sometimes. That's one of the beauties of blogging friends. Sometimes we don't have much to do with them, but they're still there and they're still our friends. I am grateful for all my blogging friends who make my life more than it would be without them. It's nice to know you Levin!

It's wonderful to feel part of a community - whether local, cyber or cultural. Especially when you can relate to and feel supported by like minded people. I'm also grateful for all the online pals I've met since blogging.
