If you know me you know how much friendship means to me. I am so fortunate to have walked along with so many friends during this time albeit from a distance. No matter, I have been able to connect and feel during those moments that everything was normal (well sort of) . I don’t know where i would be in life with out my friends. They bring me such great joy Friendships make everything in life look better. Even from a distance i have been able to maintain friendships. Thanks to zoom, facetime, email and phone calls. I miss those friends that I cannot physically be with but I would never want to lose those friendships as they make me a better person.
One of my best friends lives away and I miss her every day, but when I see her it makes it even more special . I treasure those moments and I will even treasure them more from now on. I said to one of my friends who I saw just before the pandemic if I knew then what I know now ( that would be the last time we would see each other most likely for a long, long time) I would have stayed longer, hugged longer and just be present longer.
Friendships are so vital to my well being and I need to nurture them whether I can physically see the person or not. It’s been a bit tougher to do during the pandemic as I used to get together weekly with a group of friends I treasure, not so much now. As I move about through this pandemic I need to find ways to reconnect knowing that my life is enhanced when I do.
Friendship lifts me up, I hope it does for you too.

The friendships all of us established through #etmooc have stood me in good stead over the years; we may let weeks or months pass without any formal or informal conrtact, but the friendships always blaze back full flame whenever we reach out to each other…as you’re so effectively doing through this new set of posts you have initiated. Glad to be learning with you on a regular basis again; thoroughly enjoying the posts.
Thanks for reading them. It’s nice to know we have remained connected. Our #etmooc family will always be a part of me.
