This week one of my favorite bloggers announced that she and her husband were separating. It was a big shock, not just to me, but to many of her readers as well. But the Internet world rallied and left over 300 comments, all supporting and with thoughts of love and good wishes. Not a bad comment in the bunch. And like her follow up entry, I too am thankful for the Internet. I taught my last yoga class at the studio last night and one of my students mentioned that I don't seem very sad to be leaving. The truth is, I'm not. I can't wait to get there and start our new life. The only time I get a little sad is when I think of moving so far away from this family that Chris and I have built around us. And again, I am thankful for the Internet.
I am thankful for the Internet as a tool to keep friends far away, close. I am thankful that it is there to help us support each other, to remind each other that we are loved. It's true that there are some nasty things put out there and Internet bullying. But I feel so blessed to have put myself in a circle of people who just won't tolerate that crap.
Have a wonderful weekend and a very thankful Friday.
