I have different kinds of friends. Friends that are acquaintances, like my book club friends. Friends that are work related, like my artist friends. Hinda is a friend that I've had forever, who would do anything for me. We're so close we don't even remember how we met. Now I have a new category, "cyber" friend. Last week I was looking at my Etsy shop and I popped in on a discussion thread of a promotional team that I'm on. I was shocked to see everyone was talking about a team member whose husband had just died. I don't know any of these people but it was very sad. One lady proposed we collect money to send her a food gift. She created a gift account in PayPal and after a couple of days there was almost $200! The woman whose husband died was so appreciative. Janice has become my cyber friend. We've actually been friends for 48 years! I got her name when I was 12 as a pen pal in elementary school and we've been corresponding ever since. She lives in England. We just started emailing and she checks my FaceBook page to see what's new. I sent her a photo of my latest work-in-progress:
This one is fun! I love to do glass. I set up the props and took the photo (a lot of photos). Hopefully I'll finish it in a week or so. I plan to enter this one in a competition. To all my friends, cyber or not, have a very happy healthy New Year!
