I know I covered friends once before, but they deserve another mention as I thought of a reason why I love my online friends so much.
Tonight I found out some news that I rather I didnt. Nothing wrong me or my family, just something I would prefer didnt happen. And my online friends knew about it, and were all there for me with kind words, understanding eyes for reading, and encouraging me to have a drink. They understood. Cared. Let me rant and rave. And didn't judge me once.
I love my online friends.
