Good to See Friends Return

One of the things that troubles me about the "online world" is that people can come and go so quickly and we never know what happens. I suppose it is not really that dissimilar to what happens in our "real world," when we lose touch with people.

I appreciate reconnecting with people, after periods of being apart. That is, of course, if it is a healthy relationship.

I've noticed over the past few months the absence LoudMan or Ruby3881 and I was pleased to see both today in my notifications. I have missed them both.

We all have situations in our lives where we must choose where to spend our time. We all must remember to take care of ourselves in the best manner for us. Sometimes that means we will disappear for a bit of time and space for reflection or the other things that are important.

I wish that there were some better way to keep in touch than hope that people just show back up. I certainly am delighted that these two are back on the radar! I wanted to make sure I let them know, as I am stepping away for a few hours or a few days.

A good weekend is wished to all!

It really is good to see familiar people popping up. I came here from Bubblews and love it when I come across friends from there.

Some of those people that we ave never met in real life still become very important to us.It is always good to see them again.

CoralLevang Yes, it is definitely very good to see familiar usernames re-appear after a few weeks/months of hiatus.

It is definitely great to see that people of whom we knew nothing for several months are back in action. Even if there are people I might never meet in real life, I feel there is a bond between me and them created in the online world, so it's good to see them return.

One of the fun things about online communities such as this is the way familiar people do pop up all over the place.

It's a bit concerning when people just disappear...would be handy to have a way to find out if they are okay...

Me again - ignore my previous statements in other places, I've had a change of heart emoticon :smile: catch up with you soon.

Enjoy your hiatus! We'll be here to tickle you when you get back.

I am glad to see them return too. Actually I am glad to find old friends from other sites.

I agree. I joined here last summer, but rarely wrote. This is where I decided to come after the Bubblews debacle of December 31st.

We all make our decisions that support what we want/need at any given time. Some who were here for awhile, have moved on, too. I really miss SandraLynn

Yes maybe they are busy with their other online activities if they have. In my case, I am happy that I saw some of my online friends that I have from other site and I met them here too.

I think a lot of people came back to ensure their account stayed in active status so as not to lose coins, so we get to enjoy seeing them here again. I hope they stick around a bit!
