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 . . .
