I’ve been thinking about how my “family” has grown over the past year. I’ve had online friends and been part of online communities for over a dozen years now but the last year my involvement in the Twitter community and in smaller part the Facebook community has brought a lot of great people into my life that I consider not just friends but family. Even though I’ve not met most of them.
Like any family there are few people that drive you crazy. You have the creepy uncle that makes you feel a little nervous, the aunt that hovers over you and treats you like you’re still twelve, the cousin that never seems to do much but he’s always around, the sister that always borrows your shoes without asking. But you know they’re always here for you when you need them. Gran’s always there with her compassion. Papa’s always there with his wisdom. Sometime there are squabbles and even a family feud on occasion but when it comes down to it you’re always part of the family.
This morning it’s time to groove to Sister Sledge. We are family. Happy Thursday.
