I’ve been thinking about friends again. Lost and missing ones. I have several online friends I felt I was close to. I think they know who they are and I don’t want to mention names in case I inadvertently forget one and they think they weren’t important. These friends were all fabulous. I haven’t heard from them in months.

Almost a year ago, my sweet, gorgeous adopted son, Drew, disappeared from the internet because of personal issues. After much pestering by many of us (including some of the now missing friends), Drew came back to us. I think we out-stubborned him and he realized our incessant emails weren’t going away, lol. I’m very grateful, because he is very special to me.

So this post goes out to other missing friends. I know real life gets in the way of the internet. I know it’s certainly more important than a friendship with me. But perhaps if you see that many of us are still concerned about you, still miss you, and still want you in our lives, even just on the internet, once or twice a month, you’ll reappear. We care about you, no matter what has happened in your life that has caused you to step away for a while.


  1. *crosses fingers*

    It's so worrying when that happens, isn't it? You have no way of discovering if your friend is ok...

  2. For sure! You don't know if the email address you have for them is even valid anymore.

  3. Yep, that's the problem with the internet, people can change email addresses. I did lose sight of some people that way..

  4. I'm pretty sure I know who you're talking about, and I worry, too. Hopefully we'll here from them soon. *hugs*

  5. It's definitely distressing when you lose contact with someone and have no clue why. Hopefully your missing friends will find their way to you soon.
