I am thankful for Everquest, lol. Because of that game I met my wonderful Husband, but I have also made some fabulous, lifelong friends. Some of them I have never even met in person, but they still mean the world to me. We had triumphs and defeats together, we worked together and formed a bond that a non-gamer may not understand, but that bond is strong. I love seeing wonderful things happening to them, such as engagements, weddings, and new babies (a lot of these because like me they met someone online in EQ), and I cry with them when they experience a personal loss (just like they were there for me when my Dad died). I love and cherish my EQ family, all the ones I have met, and all the ones I have yet to meet (but know I will someday down the road).
