Meeting my online friend face to face!

Vicky

It's not that I have to meet my online friends face to face to make them real friends.  You are real to me. In my heart and so often in my prayers.

Words Matter

Words have power. Most everyone over twenty-five has learned this lesson. Me... I've learned it over and over. What you say matters. A couple of months ago I had a ...

Friends are flowers that never fadejpg

My "word" for 2010 is: friendship. I wrote about it HERE, about why I wasn't happy  with that particular "word". I'm not very good at friendships.
