Man, I reached a milestone that never in a hundred years I would’ve thought possible. For those who really know me, you know why I say this. Don’t laugh!
You see, I have never been a “phone” person. I have owned only three cell phones in my life. Don’t walk around with my phone attached to my body. Up until recently I wasn’t into social media like that. I think I joined Facebook in 2013. From 2013 until 2020 I had about 60 Facebook friends. I was good because I usually have a handful of close friends in reality.
2020 brought a change for me. I had some friend requests that I did not confirm and those friends let me know about it too. All in good fun, but they made it known that I should reach out, contact people and stay in touch. Ok, I agreed. So, I sent out quite a few friend requests of my own. Most responded, some didn’t. And you know what, that’s cool. Not everyone wants or needs to be “friends”. I truly get it. Been there.
Well, after my friends accepted my requests, I now have 101 Facebook friends. 101! Who knew? Never thought that many people would be that interested in my life at this point. You know what though, I’m glad. I like keeping in touch with everybody. Love the positive energy created by communicating. Love the “good news” coming from the respective families. Love the sense of community.
So I wanna give a sincere thanks to my FB family. Thanks for sharing your stories, your time, you interests, your inspiration. And thanks for letting me share mine. Now, I wonder if I have 100 more friends out there……
