There is one thing in life that you can always rely on and guarantee and that's friendship.
I am very lucky to have an impressive number of friends, these friends are always there day and night, they keep my feet on the ground, they listen to my every moan, they cry with me and laugh with me. They are never too busy to offer advice or "give me a slap with a wet fish". They never cease to amaze me with their thoughtfulness and kindness.
Since Rich was diagnosed with Lymphoma they have been there for me every single day, even before the diagnosis when we were worried about the test results they were there to reassure me.
Now you may think I am very lucky to have all these friends, and that is true, I am blessed with having the most amazing people in my life, but the sad thing is I have never met half of them and probably never will. You see I am a member of a very special online community which I became involved in 2 years ago when a lovely lady I had "met" online needed some help in setting up a forum. I offered to lend a hand and the rest is history. 2 years later and with almost 200 members we are a pretty special and unique friendship group.
These ladies have done so much for me I cant even begin to list them all. Each one of them is special and thoughtful and is always on hand whenever I need them.
I know there are people out there who think that having online "friends" is odd for me its perfect. Whenever I need help, advice, sympathy or just another point of view I just open up my laptop and there they are! What more could you want?
