comfort & joy.....feeling blessed



my weekend was all about
blessings
stirred with huge amounts of
comfort & joy



blessing....meeting a sweet blogging friend face to face
for the very first time


comfort.....feeling so much love and a familiar closest from
our hugs that we just did not want to let each other go
{she was like hugging the softest warmest blanket on the coldest winter's day}



joy.....realizing that this friend is a sweet kindred spirit...so much so
that I felt like I knew her once before and we had just been reunited


thank you sweet friend.....
you have blessed me in so many ways
please visit my dear friend Pam here...
you will fall in love with her and her beautiful blog

Yes'm...
old friends is always best,
'less you can catch a new one
that's fit to make an old one out of

I know exactly what you mean. When my husband and I met, we felt we had known each other our whole lives. Our first date felt like we were an old married couple, it's a lovely feeling. I'm glad you finally got to meet your old friend.

Good evening dearest Koralee!

Oh I was in such a hurry this morning that I had NO TIME to visit all of you....I came by here so quickly, but here I am again to look at this delicious looking drink! Though it is FREEZING...NO....BEYOND FREEZING OUTSIDE, that drink looks so refreshing and wonderful, just like the love and friendship you bestow on us all. I wish I could talk about everyone of you and what you all mean to me, but there isn't enough space on a post or time!

Yes dearest, we are in our last week of school and I wish you the best and funnest week. WE ARE ALMOST THERE! And how lovely that you spent the weekend with your dear friend Pam! Oh her blog is so delightful.

Wishing you much blessings and love and thank you for visiting! LOVE YOU! Anita

chrissy said...

how wonderful.
i did this recently for the very first time. i met lorraine from "paperbird" at a sweet little cafe in arizona...we laughed and giggled at how it felt like a "blind date"...but we sat and talked for hours (while her darling hubby and lulu pretended to be interested..) there are just some friendships that you KNOW started before we even came to this earth.
blessings to you and pam.
