I was given another blessed opportunity on Friday, July 31 when we continued our family vacation in Orlando, Florida for a couple of days.
I had the pleasure of having breakfast with Lisa Shaw of Sharing Life with Lisa and we spent a couple of hour together.
I can't begin to tell you what a breath of fresh air she is...I could have sat there all day and soaked her in like a sponge!!!
She is as dynamic in person as she is on her blog...there is nothing fake about this powerful, godly woman!
I would have loved to be able to spend all day with Lisa but with it being our family vacation and we had tickets to hit 3 parks in 2 days...I had to keep it to a couple of hours.
I wanted to just keep hugging her, listening to her and sharing the similarities of our lives together.
It still amazes me how God is bringing Christian ladies together from all across the country and how much we have in common. Many of our lives are so much alike, our joys, pains, ups, downs, heartaches and victories...from our past to our present.
Only God could put something this amazing together...through blogging. To honestly think in January 2008...I didn't know what blogging was or how it worked.
If you would have told me that one day I would develop true friendships via the Internet, drive 13 hours to meet and stay with some of these ladies...I would have told you that you were crazy.
I am so thankful for being introduced to blogging and the wonderful ladies that I now call friends. I plan to continue to strive to meet more in real life and I know those meetings will be just as memorable as the ones that I had over our vacation this year.
I have met 4 precious ladies so far and they are:
Meeting Lisa was truly a joy for me...next time, I want to meet her husband and daughter plus spend much more time together. I'll be back ladies...I promise.
I love you, Kim, Debra, Lisa and Laurie Ann...you each hold a very special place in my heart!
