When I started blogging
I had absolutely no idea
what to expect.
My friend, Mrs. Rabe, introduced
me to the idea by showing me her
blog. As a person who has always
loved to write this seemed like a
great opportunity for a creative
outlet. I had hoped a few people
would read and comment but never
anticipated the real friendships
that our blogs can bring about.
One Friday I posted about a desire
to learn how to bake my own bread.
Next thing I knew Karen, at Blue
Barn Bulletin, had sent me some awesome
recipes. Soon a friendship was born.
Later, Chelsea was going through a
hard time after the loss of a friendship.
Having read Karen's blog for quite a while
I thought that her daughter, Julianne, and Chelsea
might really hit it off as pen pals.
It was a good idea.
Even if I do say so myself...smile.
They have much in common and have
developed a very nice friendship.
Not only that but Chelsea has gotten
to know Allison as well. I keep
suggesting Lancaster County as a wonderful
summer vacation destination....
We were considering a puppy that
is in a rescue in Michigan with
thoughts of possibly getting to
meet our friends in person if we
went to get her...but that didn't
All of that to explain how I came to
have a wonderful little gift called
the Corn Cuddler.
Our families exchanged Christmas boxes
this year. Tucked in the box from Karen
to me was this adorable and most thoughtful
So far, we have only used it heated.
First on Warren's stressed neck...
Sight and Sound is in changeover between
shows right now and things are very busy.
Yesterday, on my neck. I had one of those
headaches that starts in your neck.
This and a couple of Tylenol did the
trick. I am back to "normal"...whatever
that is for me. lol
There are many of you who have become
dear friends to me. I will not attempt
to list you...you know who you are.
Thanks for the bloggy love and encouragement.
Getting to know some of you in real life
has been a huge highlight this past year.
And it is not about the gifts...
It is about knowing that you care enough to
read, comment and pray for our family.
Know that you are loved and appreciated!
