How Cool Is That?

This blogging thing is kind of amazing when you think about it. Who knew that when I started this blog, back at HSB over 4 years ago, that it would become such a neat way to meet people. People I would never get to meet because they live so far from me or our paths would just never cross otherwise. And it's been fun to read every one's stories and keep up with people. It's widened my horizons, challenged me, made me learn new things, and see how other people live.

And then a few years ago I decided to take it a step further and fly across country with my super friend Emily to actually meet some of these online friends in person. Cindy is just about the sweetest person I've ever met. She's so gentle and thoughtful and has the most gorgeous red hair. And Angel is wise and funny and moving in her posts. Such neat people.

Sarah makes me laugh and makes me think deeper. She's honest and not afraid to hang stuff out there for all to see. I like that. And today she'll become a real life friend too. So this little old blogging thing is way more than just having your corner in cyberspace or having a place to put your thoughts. It's a way to touch other peoples lives and actually make new dear friends.

Pretty darn cool if you ask me.

I couldn't agree more. Next month I am going to meet up with 3-4 fellow bloggers, a couple of whom I now consider best friends. During hard times it has been these ladies who have reached out to me with prayers and support. Invaluable!

The blogging world has not only added much joy and support over the years in friendships but the hubby and I find that we'll talk about issues or concerns of our fellow bloggers.

You need to meet more people if I'm one of the sweetest you've ever met. ;)

I've loved EVERY second I've spent with you. (Just hasn't been enough seconds!)
