I got this Blogging friends forever award from my friend Ginger. She is a great example of the blessing that blogging can be. Ginger is someone who graduated from high school with me. (Of course, if you saw her now you would think she was much younger than me!) Anyway - imagine my surprise when I was looking at comments on another blog - Short Stop, and I saw a comment from Ginger. How nice to reconnect with an old friend! Since then she has even had the privilege of meeting my two crazy sisters.
I have so enjoyed meeting people through blogging and also reading the blogs of those I already know. I have many family members with blogs and quite a few who are from my church that also have a blog. I've met people from all over the world - Canada, Australia, Japan and Portugal. I have gotten to know bloggers from many different states. I've learned from so many people, prayed for others and been prayed for myself, laughed and cried too. You are all a blessing to me and I can't begin to pick just a few of you. If you consider yourself one of my blogging friends, pick this award up. And - thanks Ginger. You are a great friend, both on and off line!

Congrats to a great blog friend.
We're only across the state from one another, maybe one day we'll meet in the middle and share a hug and laughter!

You are certainly deserving of the award. Congratulations!

I have posted an update on Aunt May at the bottom of today's post. She is in hospital and not doing well at all.

Blessings for a a great weekend.

Yeah, what a blessing to meet the two sisters, LOL. And to think, I always thought you were so quiet, little did I know. What a trio you all are!

I think it's the best to have reconnected and to be able to share and care about one another's lives. It's been more than great, Mari!

i would so LOVE to meet some of my blog friends (a little lady named mari in on the list!) ... and like Pat, give you a real time hug ... you've blessed my heart so many times ...

i loved the previous post too, where you shared some stories from work ... once upon a time i worked at a care facility and some of the cute things that happened there have stayed with me over the years - and made me chuckle all over again!
