My Old Friends Here In Mylot, How I Miss Them...

It has been quite a long time of exhaustive work at the farm. I have decided to be with my children as already I have been missing them so much. After a week of staying home with the kids, i felt missing something. It was doing mylot. So I got to my computer. I haven't touched it for more than a year already. Nah, it didn't get that much accumulated dust. Thank goodness, my kids did some cleaning of them all periodically. After all, it must not have been difficult to do so as mine is just situated right next to theirs. So I got to the my friends discussion page. Surprise! Most of my friends are no longer posting discussions on mylot. Oh, my! I was thinking, where have they gone to and, how come only so few are left? If this has happened to you, how would you feel and what would you do? At times i feel so empty while doing mylot. How I miss all those reliable friends who are no longer around.

i am hoping to find some warm online new friends, eshaan. although we are only communicating online, i can feel the warmth of those old friends. thank you for the encouragement. i am looking forward to the day when new friends will be added who are as warm as the old ones i have had and still have stayed around. there are so few of you left.

yes, stephcjh. i can still remember that you are one of my old friends who have stayed around. those old friends, they are so reliable. always there for a good hearty discussion. never failing to share their ideas and advices whenever needed. these are the main reasons why i will forever miss those ones whom i can no longer find here.

Good to see you back. A lot of the people I had on my friends list when I started here are gone but I have added new ones and I hope myLot stays strong. I don't have children living with me anymore and with ill health a lot of time I find myLot to be my salvation. Thank You for your post and welcome back. May the New Year be filled with Good Health, Love, Happiness and prosparity.

it is really disheartening to know that some sickness of sorts are now gripping you, grandmaof2. i know of some remedies to those health conditions but since we live in different countries, i have no idea as to whether these herbal concoctions are acceptable in your area. there is also a tried and tested herbal product which we have been taking. it really promotes much, much better health. however, i do not have any idea either as regards its availability in canada. i just hope that the doctors over there can give you the kind of medication that will work for you, my friend. it is very good to know though that you have been mylotting as it makes you feel strong. remember that our friends around the mylot community will always keep us company. have a prosperous new year. may all your hopes and desires be answered positively.

I have a lot of users on my list but only a few of them are real friends and we have exchanged contact information. If for any reason we were no longer here we would not lose contact Welcome back and I can't help wondering if you have noticed any other changes since you were last here?

my, my. that is really making friends out of good mylotters. i have never done this with those friends of mine. however, i have sent a message to one of them, the one who struck me the most around here, and i got a response. i am encouraged to send some more messages to other more 'lost' friends. as for the changes here in mylot, the changes are plentiful. i have to reacquaint myself when i opened the site. it seems that i hardly know the page i was browsing then on the first day that i got back from the farm. in fact, i didn't have the courage to do any post at all. i went through the pages, amazed at the big difference as it was years ago. i can't help comparing how it was then. so cowardly of me. and to think that i was only facing the computer. after having mustered enough courage, i came again after a week has past or, was it something like ten days?

Welcome back to myLot. All forums such as myLot go through the ups and downs of membership. Members come and go faster than a horse in the Kentucky Derby. I also have lost a lot of oldtimer friends from myLot in the past year as well. But I still keep plugging away as it is a great time killer. Plus it feels almost like a family at times here. I do not worry about most the people on my list. But I do have quite a few I worry about and there's a few right now that are AWOL. But I keep on myLotting. Have a great day/night and welcome back. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

it is true that people come and go in all forums, grandpa bob. but, i really feel some kind of sadness or longing for my old friends' presence here in mylot. it is good that you are still around together with my good friend grandmaof2 and eshaan. there are still others around but i just can't get over the feeling yet of looking around, scouting for my old friends here. yes, i am happy that i can still find some familiar names doing mylot, this is one thing that i cannot deny.

I can relate to this Trinidadvelasco. While I love my new friends, they are being fantastic but I miss my old friends. Most of my old friends with whom I had started with here do not come anymore. They are busy with their own priorities and I appreciate it. But still I miss interacting with them, reading through their lovely thoughts, talking on day to day basis. They have been a great support all through my bleak times. Some of them peep in sometimes and do sneak in to my discussions once in a while and do write their thoughts, it feels great! But things aren't the same, I guess.
