New friends_ old friends_ friendship that hasn't even come to be, yet.
They're all so exciting to me and today I got to meet and have coffee with a new friend.
Hold up, not coffee, I got to have my first Pumpkin Spice Latte for the season.
So many of you know SoSoBella and her amazingly beautiful creations.
I don't own one yet, but I hope to real soon.
Well she lives in big ole' California and I live in little ole' S.C.
But Kristy from SoSoBella has a friend named Nina who just moved to S.C. about 2 months ago.
And Kristy decided to refer Nina over to my blog beings we both live in the same state.
Nina then emails and tells me what city she lives in and gives me a little info on herself (which I was thankful for...always leary of the creepers) which turns out to be the same city I live in...isn't this great? We emailed a few times back & forth and decided to meet for coffee this morning.
Isn't God awesome? The fact that he would work through Kristy in Ca, that I've never met, to have me meet Nina, who literally lives 10 minutes from me...is crazy awesome_ crazy love.
He lavishes us with crazy love and I don't ever want to take it for granted.
I choose to believe that He is constantly working on my behalf for my good.
And only He can know what is good for me.
This morning was filled with laughter_ conversation of family_ dreams of the future_ blogging_
reality shows_ & Robert James Ritchie (Nina likes Kid Rock).
It was a great morning spent getting to know a new soul.
Had I never started blogging back in April I would have never gotten to meet you.
This has opened up a whole new world to me and I'm so thankful.
For each one of you, and for every time you write and I'm allowed into your world_
wherever that may be.
Some of you are in small towns_ big cities_ some a new state_ on a farm_ in apartments_ wherever you are makes no difference because we're all brought together when we hit that button to publish our post..
I think of Hannah and her pairing of ladies to start us as pen pals.
Stephanie at Four on the Shore is now the friend I get to write & receive letters from each month.
So thank you for having open hands & open hearts.
My life has been enriched by you.
New friends are good_ old friends are good_ sharing life with other people is good_
and God is good.
