Friends

Cyber schmyber, a friend is a friend.

I haven't been able to focus long enough to write lately. Even when I want to write down what I'm feeling it just doesn't translate to written word well. It's like a fog or a blur. There is however one thing that's clear...You guys are great!

When I read your comments, I feel better. I really do. The sincere concern that you show cheers me up. No, I'm not a hermit without real life friends. It's just that you don't know me and have nothing to lose or gain...and still, you comment. I just want you all to know that it means a lot to me.

Enough with the mush. Here's what you are in different languages.

Which one do you like?

Albanian -- mik
Afrikaans - vriend
Chinese - péngyou
Dutch - vriend, vriendje
Danish - ven
Estonian - sõber
French - ami
German - freund
Georgian - megobari
Hungarian - barát
Indian - dost
italian - amico
Irish - cara
Japanese -- tomodachi
korean -- jingu
Latin -- amicus
Manx -- carrey
Old English -- freond, wine
Persian -- dust
Russian -- prijátel

((Ruby)) We certainly can understand your lack of posts lately. I'm so glad you have been able to find some comfort in the comments. I feel the same way. It's nice having a place to go to talk about S and R that I know others will understand.

I love the list of different languages. It's remarkable how very different so many of the words are. I have to say I like the Korean word "jingu" even though I've never seen it or heard of it before.

And when I heard the song "Arms of an Angel," I had to swallow hard and blink back tears -- but it hurt in a good way, if you know what I mean. You've given a lot to me -- to all of us -- too.
