Facebook


Who says Facebook friends aren’t real friends?….. They enjoy seeing you on line everyday….. Miss you when you’re not there….. Send condolences when you lose a loved one….. Send you wishes on your birthday….. Enjoy the photos you post….. Put a smile on your face when you’re down….. Make you laugh when you feel like crying…… Re-post if you are grateful for your Facebook friends. I know I am!

To those of my friends, who are NOT there: I love you too, very much so – of course! But I do have to say: I feel sorry for you, that you do not expirience the love shared there!
