5 Minute Friday/Reflect

Writing for 5 minutes on a topic.

Start . . . 
Reflect hmmm.  This week I'm reflecting 'thinking about' alot of things.  I started a new job on Wed.  Last week I left old friends. 
I'm reflecting 'thinking about' them.  I miss my old friends.  
I'm reflecting about my week.  I'm thinking wondering how long it will take my new co-workers to 'cozy up' to me an consider me 
'friend'.  Amazingly it was only a few months ago that I really began to feel I had 'friends' at work.  I sincerely hope it doesn't take almost 3 years to feel that way.  
I'm such a people person.  That's why I blog.  I want the company of friends.  
I'm reflecting today about blog friends.  I've had a few through the years.  A few have disappeared.  I'm sad when people just disappear.  Blogs/Bloggers that I frequent become friends.  At least to me.  It truly does make me sad when the just disappear. 
I've had two close blogger friends.  We commented on each others post and I joined their linky parties.  And then one day they were gone. 
Reflecting 'Remembering them' is bittersweet.  But I wish them well. I wish and I pray that they are doing well and have just moved on to other interests.  
I have to admit that there are days that I just want to 'give up' blogging.  The day or days when there is no traffic.  No visitors. 
No comments.  But then I remember how I've felt when my friends 'disappear'.  And.  I don't want to be that friend.  The one that just disappears.
Days/years from now I want to Relfect on all the good times and fun we've had together.  
We are all blessed to have this medium of blogging and FaceBook.
Today I was able to communicate with a friend on FaceBook just to check in to make sure she was ok.  She had not posted in a week. I was worried.  
I do Reflect on the many hours we've shared through our blogs. 
A friendship begins and it is a treasure . . . 
Linking with Five Minute Friday

I wonder if they are just trying to find a balance?
I know that is the case for me.
I have over 2,000 emails I have yet to look at.
I spent most of the day, yesterday, going through some of those emails.
I am still swamped. However, I spent most of today reading so I can post another review.
I have also started `FlyLady` so I can get my house in order.
There is no telling what your bloggy friends may be up to.
I do hope you keep blogging. It's a great outlet. xoxo
