Now what in the world would Mickey & I be rendezvousing about at midnight?
I'm sure you are asking this question!
Well, it isn't the "what" but the "who".
The "Who" being my wonderful blog friend, Ginger, her wonderful husband, Dave,
their lovely daughter, Alicia, and new son-in-love, Alfred. Yes....ALL of them!!!
Ginger is one of the earliest blog friends that I made. We were trying to remember last night how we first "met" and I went back this morning and looked. I began my blog on January 21, 2007 and on February 9, 2007 I had this comment from GingerGinger said... Thanks for stopping by my site. Are you Amy's mom? I'm excited to read more about you!! Please stop back to my site any time. I love your profile. We have MUCH in common. It's NO secret....it's ALL God! February 9, 2007 12:22 PM
Now I remember, Ginger: Amy was one of the first to comment on my blog and when I followed her link I found you and read your post and commented and then you visited mine on February 9th and we've been building this wonderful friendship ever since.
Ginger & Dave have made several trips to Texas to visit their daughter during this time. Each time we have tried to put together a meeting and it just never worked out. This time we were both determined and sweet Dave said he was going to do everything possible to make it happen!!! Thank you Dave.....you did:o)
Alicia & Alf. What a sweet young couple and so co-operative and pleasant while their parents met us on this trip. Alf even gave me a big hug when they left. That was so sweet and pleased me so much :o)
Bless their hearts......they had been on the road already for about 10-11 hours and had 3-4 hours left to travel but took time to meet us.
We got to visit for about an hour and it was wonderful. Ginger is the sweet, gentle soul I knew she would be and Dave was a pure delight. We talked and talked and could have talked for hours.
As we departed the 6 of us joined hands in the Mc*D's and Dave prayed a wonderful prayer. He spoke of this meeting being just a taste of what Heaven will be like when we get to meet up with many wonderful friends.
Ginger, commented that I was shorter than she had pictured me. As I looked across the table at Ginger & Dave's beautiful blue eyes I knew for sure where those 3 beautiful daughters of theirs came from.
Thank you guys so much for taking the time and effort to meet us. You have made
this part of a Thanksgiving that we will always remember and cherish!!!!
This is my 7th blog friend to meet. Number 7 - the number of perfection!!! I am believing for the Lord to let me met many more of my blogging friends. What a joy.
Addendum:I "snatched" this picture from Ginger's blog to show that my dear, sweet, precious Mickey was indeed along and present!! Thanks to two wonderful, special husbands, Mickey & Dave, for making this happen. Ginger & I are indeed blessed beyond measure with them. How many men would do all this for their wives? Ours will and DID :o)
