#InternationalFriendshipDay and although I don’t need an excuse to celebrate friendship, I don’t want to miss an opportunity to celebrate the wonderful bonds of friendship that we have forged here in this community.
Our friendships span many years, many countries, and many, many ups and downs. We come together when there is good news to celebrate, and when we hurt we know there is a community that hurts alongside us. Our bonds of friendship are no less real because they have been forged online. And many of us have taken that online friendship into the real world and met in person – and how joyous that has been.
We share a very special bond and I have never taken this for granted. Your friendship has sustained me over the years through some very dark days. I care deeply about you and am so grateful for your friendship.
So here’s to friendships, old and new. May our friendships continue to sustain us as we journey through life together.
