Kim, Debra, me and Biscuit...the Red, White and Blue Ladies! We didn't plan this either...it just happened...I didn't notice it until Kim pointed it out later in these pictures.
As many of you already know, my family just got back from our vacation to Florida. This was one of the top 5 vacations that we have ever taken...we made memories as a family and friends for life.
I have so much that I want to share so I am going to break it up over the week...don't want to bore you.
Kim from Homesteaders Heart opened her home, family and their hearts to us for 4 days at the beach. You try to imagine what someone would be like, sound like and how things will go but you never really know until you meet them. I am no different...the closer that we got to their home...the more nervous I became. I wasn't worried about liking them but was worried about them liking us.
We immediately felt a kindred spirit with them...we are all believers of Jesus Christ and that made us family before we became friends.
Monday...Debra from Clothed With Scarlet came down with her son, Josh to visit and meet us for the first time too. Kim's friend, Kathy also came over to go to the beach with us.
I couldn't have asked for anything more that what we had...we received the warmest welcome, a beautiful cottage to stay in, hospitality just oozes from Kim and Brad and it was like see old friends after being apart for awhile. They truly have the Spirit of Hospitality! Oh...the food was wonderful too...Kim is an awesome cook.
Proof that Roger dried the dishes after dinner that Kelsey washed. What an amazing young lady that Brad and Kim have...she is adorable, precious, sweet and her smile will light up the room.
4 days earlier...we were strangers and now...we are friends for life...we will be back...I promise!
I can't thank Brad and Kim enough for the enormous gesture of opening their hearts and home to a Sister in Christ that she has only know through blogging. God is so good and I am so thankful to have been given this opportunity.
Thank you for the memories that you help create for my family that will last a lifetime...precious memories, but more so...new friends...in real life...for all eternity!
Next: Meeting Lisa Shaw! What a joy!
