“Friends Day” on Facebook

Over on Facebook they are celebrating “Friends Day” as a part of their 12th birthday observance. It got me to thinking about the friends I have had in my life and how much they were a part of getting me through different parts of my life.

I don’t have a “best friend” my wife is a friend but we think you can have a spouse and then have a “best friend” who are two different people. I am not sad about not having a “bestie” just because it might be good to have a wide variety of people in ones life.

For some reason in my life friendships have been temporal. I admit there are times when I think people don’t like me very well just because I am a bit on the odd side at times. Perhaps I need to like me more so others will. That is another discussion altogether.

Life-long friendships are inspiring and cool and to have them is a gift. Of course there are friendships that are based on situations of a moment and are there for a season. Also there are friendships that have ended because of reasons.

As we who are on Facebook celebrate this “Friends Day” I consider each of you who follows me a friend because we share blogging and the desire to connect with the world at large. We indeed are strangers only once as someone once said.

Thank you for being a friend…From The Golden Girls

  1. I think all my friends are my best friends, but that’s probably because I don’t have many friends :p I treasure the ones I do have, though, and it’s always nice to make new ones. Lovely post, Tony 🙂


  2. I have a bff and we are blessed to have each other. I am so happy I did not grow up in this age of technology. When I see my kids have thousands of friends, I say really. I think anyone born after 1979 their best friend is their cell phone. Just say’n ❤ Blessings


  3. I consider all my followers my friends as well, even though most people are older than me but age is but a number. So thanks guys for being my friend and such. This post is truly a great one. :))
