Maybe I am weird (okay, I know I'm weird) but I haven't thought about whether this is weird or not. So I'll let you decide. . .
I talk about my blogging friends like I know ya'll personally. I mean Shane and I have been in conversations before about where Fletch went for so long. How Oreo has been since going MIA and how great it is to see her back. About a new friend that Shane and I both have that is a missionary in Tiawan of course there is Sandi –I think she's everybody's friend. I love reading Spunky because she really gets me going sometimes and Di and I are often on the same soapbox at the same time. I have also talked to others about you too, just as if you were friends they might someday run into in the neighborhood someday.
There are the many others that I am friends with. (just because I didn't mention you doesn't mean that I don't appreciate each of you on my friends list). Funny when I first started this blog thing I thought I'd never have a friend then Julie added me to her friends list and off I went. Now I have 50 blogging buddies. Yes 50 — I never would have imagined that!
There are so many of you that I wish I could meet in person and look forward to meeting in heaven if not in this lifetime. Several that have gone through hard times that I wish I could come and put real arms around and give hugs and several that it would be wonderful just to meet and have a wonderful time of fellowship together.
Each of you have encouraged me, uplifted me and been my friend when others around me do not understand why we have made some of the choices we have made for our family.
Okay, so am I weird for treating you like you are truly part of my life (because you are) each of you is special to me in your own way? Do any of you do this? Time to fess up.
