Blog Friends

Friends I Visit Often 2
It’s no secret that I treasure the friendships I’ve made in this wonderful world of blog!  You have been there through thick and thin – you have laughed with me, cried with me, prayed for me, given me special gifts and sent me many messages of love and encouragement and friendship.  And that, my friends, means more than words can tell.
 
I want you to meet a very special friend of mine who just started her new blog.  Shirley and I attend the same church.  We have been on a mission trip to Mexico together, shared special things from our hearts with each other, laughed and cried together.  My sweetheart and I walked through some difficult times with Shirley and her dear hubby, Reuben, who is now with Jesus.  If you ever meet Shirley it won’t be long before you’ll be drawn to her by her sweet smile and kind words.  She is a writer and a poet and now she’s sharing that with us.  Please stop by Shirley’s new blog, The Early Morning Poet.  When you do, be sure to say hi and welcome her.

And there’s another special lady in my bloggy-world.  I’m meeting Marilyn, from Delights Of The Heart, today for tea!  She and I have come to know each other a bit over the past few months and I can’t wait to meet her ‘for real’ today and have time to chat over tea.  We’re meeting at a new tea room in a nearby community.  Tomorrow I’ll share bits and pieces of our time together and the wonderful tea room and gift shop.  But now. . .I’m excited.  Oh, I’ve got to go – I have to do my hair, change my clothes, powder my nose,  brush my teeth, put my shoes on . . . . .

  1. Hi Adrienne! Oh, how exciting to get to meet a blogging friend. I've yet to do that! I will go and check out your friend's new blog. I agree, we've made some sweet friends here, haven't we?
    Thanks for the visit and I know you'll love Alaska. We've been there a couple of times. In fact we cruised there last September! It's really so beautiful. I know just hopping off at spots would not be like actually staying there.
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. Oh My Gosh ... I forgot to say that Marilyn is Marmalady .... and she has a marmalade cat ... who's name is JOEY! I was going to do a post on the name being the same when she first got him .... but got busy. It just makes so much sense .... and I just LOVE it when we discover how small the world is!!! HUGS!

  8. Well, I'm glad I came back over here, because the comment I made did not take! I am doing that more and more lately, up too late I guess. Anyway, I'm glad you had an exciting day out with a blogger friend. I have an award for you at my blog.
