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.
