Do You Make People Feel Loved and Appreciated?
I am a very lucky lady to have learned the value of relationships to others.
These others do not always come in the form of family or face-to-face friendships. With the advent of the Internet, our friendships can be forged through instant pen-pal relationships, chat rooms, social media and various other computer-based communication.
There was a time when I might have felt hurt to spend a milestone birthday by myself. Somehow, we often have expectations of what events are to represent, or how they are to be carried out.
Although it would have been nice to have had a party and more people call or send cards, I know that it is not about quantity in life, but about quality. It is about choosing our special moments and friends, and also about how we view the world around us.
When I started to read the notes left here in Persona Paper on my profile page, the articles that people wrote to honor my day, and the comments all of you have left, I can honestly say that this is the best possible gift that anyone could have ever given to me.
When it all comes down to it, people will remember not the words spoken or written, but how you make them feel. And you all make me feel appreciated, loved, supported, cared for and important to you.
From across the miles and through the time zones, and on this amazing journey of Life (through the Web of communication), thank you from the bottom of my heart for the friendship you share with me.
