Family vs Like-Family

Awkward Family
People who come into our lives always leave marks. Some are good, some are bad, but they all affect us in one way or another. And we give all these people in our lives labels. It’s quite natural: This one is a friend, that one is a neighbor, that one is an acquaintance, this one is a co-worker, that one is family, and this one is like-family. It’s these last two that was brought to my attention recently: the Family vs Like-Family. More

[This is a recycled post. Not a re-post. There’s a difference. They’re spelled differently. But this one was so old, I doubt anyone even remembers it in the first place. So it’s almost like its new, isn’t it? Oh! And the picture above has absolutely nothing to do with the post. But it sure is nice to look at, isn’t it?]

I recently visited with some friends out of town. Whenever we get together, we always have a great time, even if it’s just sitting around and catching up. Normally, we don’t have much in the line of excitement happening when we visit.

Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day, and I will – as will the majority of Americans – be sitting and stuffing my face with Turkey, dressing, appetizers, cranberry sauce, desserts, and more food than anyone could possibly swallow in one sitting (actually, it would most likely be more food than would feed a third-world country for a month). After all, that’s exactly what Thanksgiving Day is all about, right?

It’s also about friends and family – and arguments, and bickering, and throwing things at each other because you haven’t seen each other since last Thanksgiving’s brawl which you lost.

I Believe Facebook May Be A Necessary Evil

Facebook

Facebook came on the scene worldwide in 2005 (at least according to Wikipedia). I was late in coming to the table and didn’t start my personal Facebook page until … gosh, I guess it was 2008 when I logged on for the first time! I never had a MySpace account, so I totally skipped that losing phase – so at least there’s that positive note…

The importance of friends

Leave a comment

FriendshipHow do you spend your days? If you are like most people, there is at least a small part of your day spent communicating with or spending time with a friend. They’re there when times are difficult; they’re there when times are good. When you have wonderful news to share, they’re right there with you, or on the other end of the phone or email sharing that news with you. But just how important are they? And what benefit are they to our lives?
