All Is Well

I just LOVE y’all. Really. I forget that if you tell people you’re going to meet an online blog friend that some of you would worry and then really really really worry if i don’t post right away saying, “I’m fine! She was lovely and of course didn’t kill me!”

And to her family and friends, “I wasn’t really lovely, but I DID giver her a welcome-to-Texas hug with a big stomp on her foot, but then I didn’t kill HER, either.” I’m like that.

“Her” being someone I will only refer to as M. Not because she asked me to. But because I will tell all of you everything about ME, but I am a stickler for guarding other people’s privacy whether they want me to or not. Unless you specifically tell me I can use your name and share details of conversations, I pretty much won’t. So if you want to meet, then let me know! I’ll hug you, stomp on your foot, and then keep your identity secret as well as all your secrets.

Not that M told me secrets. I think. I wouldn’t tell you even if she did. That was kinda my point up there a minute ago.

She and her husband are two of the most genuine, kind, nice people I’ve met in ages. M’s husband adores her, and frequently uses the words “my wife” with open affection as he touches her arm. It’s really something.

M is really something, too. She had sent me a text saying, “I’m wearing a purple shirt and have messy brown hair.” The hair was not messy. The shirt was purple.

The lunch was SO nice and the company was nicer.   We talked food and family and God and geographical backgrounds and kitchen fires. Then we went outside and my inner holy roller came out and I prayed all over them in the parking lot. (I had my reasons. They didn’t mind.)

I just really wish they lived closer.

I understand what you mean about the suspicion regarding blog friends. A lady I know (who I don’t really like) urged me to attend her Bible study. I explained that I attend several studies online and love my friends there. She frowned, oh well.

I look forward to meeting you someday, Kelsey. I’ll be the girl in the red lipstick and steel toe shoes. Hugs… : )

Hey! I just noticed that you and Jan are friends! The blogosphere is a small world.

My favorite friends are the those I’ve met from blogging together. And most recently friends from Twitter.

I think I’ve met 6 friends online. Seriously the best of friends I have. I love the internet for that.

how funny! I totally don’t mind you using my name and you didn’t really “stomp” my toe considering I out-weigh you by about 100 pounds!

secrets may have leaked, but I will never know because I talk non-stop when I’m nervous. I laugh too, like a donkey – or a barking seal. Did I do any of that? It’s all a blur. I am not a social person at all. Yikes.

But hubby is dear and he is sweet. Most of the time. Thanks for your prayers!

WISE you are, to avoid the unlikeable bible study lady. life is too short not to. (said the antisocial one)

I’m so glad you had a good time.

I love that Linda said she would be “the girl in the red lipstick and steel toe shoes.” That is just awesome. :)
