Our Blogger Friends

As you know yesterday I met my blogger friend, Rhondi for the very first time! She's so sweet and we had a glorious time! It got me thinking about our friendships we have formed through our blogs. I am thankful every day for the friendships I have made! You all have been such an inspiration, there for me when I've had some hard times, nurturing when I need that and just plain wonderful!! All those words just don't seem enough to describe how I feel about all of you! We share so many things with each other and go through what the other person is going through-it is like a huge sisterhood! Our blogs remind me of years ago when everyone met at each others homes for quilting bees, canning vegetables or fruit with each other, sharing recipes and things like that. We are too spread out all over the US and world to get together at each others homes but we do share all the same things-recipes, knitting patterns, what is going on in our lives, our decorating, etc. So I guess this is the modern version of the old-fashioned get togethers!

I am very glad to know everyone I blog with and all the future bloggers out there! I just want to thank all of you for being you :)!!!

Everyone have a wonderful day!

I'm so grateful for all of my blogging friends, too. I've never met any in person... not yet anyway. I've never really thought of the blogging community that way, but it's true... great analogy.
Happy Monday!

Oh my goodness, that is an excellent way of looking at our gatherings here in blogland, Sherri, a quilting bee!! It is so true that you feel close to all the gals in blogland and share so much...never dreamed when I started blogging that sweet friendships would develop!

Hugs, Carolyn ~ Cottage Sunshine

What fun that you got to meet Rhondi. I have made so many wonderful friends through blogging and I can't wait to meet you in person at Penny's brunch this month. Love & blessings from NC!

I haven't had the chance to meet any of my blogging friends maybe because I'm from another country but I know they're there and their comments inspire to go on blogging.

Kay said...

I agree with you 100% Sherri! I sure am glad I met you. :-)

Meeting fellow bloggers is such fun and I'm looking forward to meeting you at Penny's on the 16th.

In June I met three other bloggers from east Tennessee and we had a great get-together with their families. Blogging is such fun!

So glad you got to meet Rhondi in person! Blog friends truly are the best, and what a wonderful analogy about how women used to support one another, and how that translates to the blog world!

Glad your get together went well Sherri. Always fun to meet in person.

Mary said...

Yes, time spent with sweet Rhondi is a blessing, she's a very special blogging friend and I was also fortunate to meet her last year. So glad we'll all get together in the mountains very soon!

See you in Asheville!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
