this blog world is crazy.

I seriously have the best blog friends. Thank you @cuppakim.

last week, miles was getting a little cray-cray around dinner time, if you know what i mean.
my dad was cooking and he was just whiny, whiny, whiny. 
that hour between 5-6 is always something else, i tell you.
 i decided to pop him in the stroller and just have some time with my little guy...
so we went for a walk to go get the mail.

much to my surprise, when i unlocked the mailbox, 
there was a gigantic box from one of my closest bloggy friends addressed to cammie jane & me.
i was so excited!! 
we had a few more blocks til we were home and the rest of the way, i just reflected on how unusual this blogging world can be.

i know there are people that probably think i'm crazy for meeting real friends like i've met.
even i thought it was a bit strange at first.
but as i walked, i reflected on how i've actually been so blessed - especially over the last year - 
by several different women around these parts.

there are friends on here that i talk to in some sort of fashion almost every day.
we encourage each other, pray for each other, make each other laugh so hard.

there's a friend that i've admired so much for her posts on parenting that i've in fact called crying when i was at the end of my rope with miles - and she's checked in with me numerous times and has prayed for me.

there's a friend that confides in me and i confide in her - and i just would hate to see what life would be like without her in it now.

there is even one friend that i have yet to meet - but we've become such close friends that i just feel like nothing would change if and when we do meet....we'd just keep on going on with life as usual.
*******
so yes, people might think this bloggy world is weird.
and some might think it is border line.....what's the word....fake maybe?
i think i even thought that before.

but i am so thankful for the friends the Lord has blessed me with - they are real friends.
i know this blog will not last forever....but isn't this crazy world fun sometimes?

to those of you who i'm talking about - thank you for loving me and letting me be a part of your life. :) 
i'm so glad we've got each other.

  9. crazy, crazy good.
    the best kind of crazy right?

    i'm still floored that you sent me a biebs valentine.
    i think that is where my newfound love for the biebs began.
    in fact, i know it is.
