Over the years since we acquired our first computer I have been a member of several e-mail loops and now I love blogging and the blogging community. I have been blessed with meeting and getting to know women I otherwise would never have known. I often feel unworthy of the love they have shown me. Yesterday was one of those days I felt unworthy. I received a package from a dear dear blogging lady who I have come to think of as a close friend. I have never met her, but she went out of her way to send me a package. Not just any package, but one she filled with things she chose with me in mind. How wonderful is that. It really lifted my spirit. Thank you Linda. If you want to get to know her and see for your self how wonderful she is you can visit her blog here.
While I was in the hospital I got a visit from another lady and her step-daughter. A lady who I had never met in real life, whom I only knew from this blogging community. How special is that to find someone who lives in your own city and find your have so much in common through blogging. Then for that person to take time out of their life and come and see you just when you needed a lift of spirit. She also made me something keeping in mind what she knew of me from my blog and brought it to me. I will post a picture of it tomorrow. Thank you so much Lisa and Emily for coming to see me. If you want to get to know Lisa and see what a great person she is you can visit her here.
There is another groups of ladies whom I have been blessed to get to know over the years. We have been on the same e-mail loop for five or six years. We came together with an interest in similar teaching styles for our children and have blossomed into a community of sisters. We have welcomed new children into each others families. We have watched over each other in times of trouble and rejoiced with each other in times of happiness. Words will never express what I feel towards this group of ladies I have never met in real life, but with whom I have shared so much of my life. Thank you Ann, Linda B, Heather, Pattie, Jamie, Linda, Denise, and Laura.
Sew Long for Now!
