SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR

Look who called me today!!!!!



I keep telling you all that I'm absolutely one of the most blessed people on earth. Well.......I had additional proof of that today. Right after lunch my phone rang and this sweet voice asked to speak to "Susan" and when I said "speaking" the sweet voice said "This is Ginger" WHAT Ginger picked up the phone and called me all the way from West Michigan!!! Can you all see my big smile? It was, and is, from ear to ear and plastered all over my face.


We had a lovely talk. She didn't sound like I expected her to. Don't ask me what I expected. She said I sounded like she expected because of the Southern twang.



Thank you, Ginger. You'll never know how really pleased I am and how very much I appreciate you.


Ha - Ha Leigh Ann & Ginger......neither one of you thought I would know how to get her picture. But I Do!!!!!!!

Awwwww! That's awesome! It's so nice to put a voice with the face. I've met two online friends and spoken to another on the phone. We all have heart children, and believe me...we bonded!! It is such fun to actually speak with an online friend.

Oh how special is that? She really seems to be the sweetie! And God is certainly smiling on you these days, Miss Susan!

What a shock, I come to your blog and find ME! Lady, you are getting way to savvy with your blogging.

We did have a nice chat, didn't we :) So, how do I sound? I know, very nasally. I'm from Michigan and we all sound like we talk through our noses. You have a wonderful southern accent and I enjoyed every word you spoke. Our dear friend LA talks so fast that you need to listen closely, haha. By the way, who is she calling nutty?

I'm glad I made you smile and not cry. You know, some of us cry at the drop of a hat. I'm happy your day was just a little brighter because of a phone call, mine was too.

God bless and we'll talk again soon!

Hi Susan- I'm a little behind in my blog reading... love your new blog design and your new car. And it's so neat that you and Ginger were able to talk!

Momma Roar said...

I do talk fast, don't I? Sorry about that. :)

Saija said...

i've talked to a few blog buds over the years - and that has been so sweet! :o) ... it would be nice to have a blog-get-together, but maybe that won't be until heaven!

blessings!

You are too funny - love the crack about the picture!

I appreciated your sweet words on mine about being a ray of sunshine to you - I needed to hear that today! :)

How exciting Susan!!! It would be really neat to talk to a blogging buddy (and put a voice to the face)(that's backwards to what it normally is-isn't it?!) that you've gotten to know!! great new look!!
