Blogging Friends

If you've been following my blog for very long, you know that Tammy is my BBFF. Tammy lives in Canada and quickly became one of my best friends. It all started with a simple e-mail wherein I didn't know her, but wrote to ask her a few questions. I doubted that she'd even reply. Little did I know the spectacular friendship that would develop! Her kids, although they've never met me, call me Aunt Misty. She and I have sent gifts to each other. We've talked on the phone. Oh my, we've definitely spent hours talking on the instant messenger about everything from Christmas, boxing day sales, Thanksgiving, cooking, fishing, and so much more!

This time of year, when it's time to think about all the things you are blessed with in life, I can't help but be thankful for the internet. Yes, that sounds materialistic, but honestly, it's not. Without the internet, I wouldn't have made some of the very best friendships I've ever experienced. I can't list them all... some of these friends, I talk to on a regular basis and have developed lifelong friendships with, such as Bear, Tammy, and Barb. Others, I respect and admire, such as the photo-bloggers, such as Coy, Willard, and Kerri... and that brings me to all of my wonderful Flickr friends, which are too many to mention! Others, I've developed a special friendship with, which I know will always be there, such as Sandy, Anna, and Bridget. As I said, I can't list everyone, but please know that you ALL hold such a special place in my heart!

Awwwww! I love you Misty. You are awesome!

And I'm thankful for the internet, too.

I agree! The internet can be a wonderful thing. Glad I've found you! (I don't even remember how, is that bad? haha)

linking over from Cabin Fever to say i always enjoy your photos and that i'm glad sharing my true appreciation lifted your spirits (and likely read a bit). this post really speaks to the power of kindness of strangers...and echoes my own appreciation for those friends i've only met virtually. it matters not where we find our support, only that we are surrounded by those who care and understand and propel us forward. many smiles to you today, misty, and every day.

Misty you're not only my BBFF, but you are also my best friend. I don't know what I would do without you. I LOVE YOU!!!!!
