There are times when things just get to you, KWIM?  You know they shouldn’t – logically speaking – but they do anyway.  Last night was one of those times for me.  My feelings were hurt and it was just a really rough evening.  But it is in those times that friendships really have a chance to shine.  I got several supportive phone calls as well as  private messages over at SplitCoastStampers.  And this morning I woke up to even more support from my “computer friends”.   I know it’s hard for some people to understand how I could have “real friends” through the internet, but wow…I could go on and on about the friendships I have been blessed with.

What can you do today…even some very small thing…to make someone smile, make someone feel loved, make someone feel a little better about something…what unexpected thing can you do today to let someone know you are so glad to be their friend?
