The theme this week for 5 Minute Friday is “Community”.
I used to snicker when I hear that people met ‘online’ and wonder how in the world a relationship could really develop with someone that you hadn’t met in person. Wouldn’t it be scary to actually get together? In my mind, it was just people posing as someone they were not, and real relationships were just a joke.
Then I started blogging and some of these online personalities became REAL to me. More than anything I wanted to wrap my arms around some of the sweet ladies that were quickly becoming more than just an online presence to me.
One brave day, I drove into the inner city of Philadelphia to meet one of these ladies who is now one of my DEAREST friends. Since then, I have met numerous others that I am beyond blessed to call friends. Ladies I know that I can pick up a phone and call in a heartbeat. Drop an email or send a text.
No more snickering. I am blessed to be a part of a different type of community.
