Unlikely friendships

Today I’m over at (in)courage, talking about community and friendships—specifically, those found online. We need people, and while “real life” friends are essential, friends online can be surprisingly meaningful, too. From the post:

Community online doesn’t replace community in ‘real’ life. But it can enrich your life, both in breadth and in depth. While you love on your kids at home, a few clicks of the mouse can bring you encouragement from another mom, across the world, right in the trenches with you, too. And sometimes, the Internet also introduces you to friends—real friends, friends you’d otherwise never meet.”
