Thank You

I often find myself telling a story about a friend, only to go back and say well its a 'blog friend'.

This then of course, causes people to laugh.

As we have stated on our blogs before, people who don't blog 'just don't get it'.

I am quickly approaching 200 posts and I can't help but think of the friendships that I have made along the way.

I have 'met' so many amazing blog friends, whom I will most likely not meet in this lifetime, but  yet we share our lives with each other.

Everyday I read your stories, and I laugh, cry, feel inspired, relate to you, walk away with a new fashion tip or a great new recipe.

Every so often there will be a prayer request from one of my blog friends, forcing me to come out of my 'box' that I live in and see what goes on outside of my world. Whether it be friends struggling with infertility, babies who need healing, friends who need prayer for a  job interview, or a smooth pregnancy I am praying for these people I have met through the internet.

So I want to say Thank You for sharing your life with me.  I truly enjoy these friendships that I have made and I hope to continue them.

And also, Thank You for letting me share my life with you.  Whether its a story about how my heater is blowing cold air, a post about what God is teaching me right now, or yet another random story from my newlywed life, you are there to listen.

So Thank You to all my blogger friends!! 

Here's to many more posts!

You are very welcome! And thank you too!

Just for the record, sometimes when I am telling Shannon about my "bloggy friends," he will stop me and ask me, "Who are you talking about again?" That's when I have to explain to him that So and So is NOT a character on Desperate Housewives, but she is a real person. LOL!:)

Have a blessed day!

I can relate to this feeling, as well. It's like people that I don't even know come out and want to be apart of what I have going on and offer their prayers and thoughts and concerns, and it's a great feeling. :)

Just last night I was showing my husband Kelly's baby (Harper) with her little eyes open. We've all been praying for her and it has made me so happy to see God bless her little life. Just look at how the blogging community has been there for Kelly & Scott. It's amazing.
I'm always telling my family and friends about my precious blogging friends. I have had such a wonderful experience blogging. I have "met" some very amazing women. Those who don't blog, don't really get it.
We all share a very special bond and I love it too!

Isn't it crazy how we all become so intertwined in each other's lives while most of us will probably never meet in person?

I think it goes to show how absolutely amazing people really are :)

Jenny Lynn said...

I find myself doing the exact same thing! People that don't have blogs really don't get it, you're right.

I love being able to share my life with others and learn about them even if I don't ever meet them.

So thanks, for sharing all your funny stories and creative ideas :)

it has been a pleasure to follow along with you!

Rebecca Jo said...

I catch myself saying the same thing in a story, "I have a friend who...." & then someone will ask who & I have to say, "A blog friend"---- no one gets it unless you truly understand the bonds in the blog world!

Whitney said...

I have loved hearing your stories! The blog world is a crazy place!

Rachel said...

Congrats on all your posts! I have enjoyed meeting you on here!

misty said...

no, thank you! i LOVE reading your blog - your so funny & honest & its great reading your blog.

it is crazy that we write, tell stories, share pictures to people we have never meet but yet we feel like we have. its a wonderful thing!

Alex and Jill said...

I do the exact same thing...I always say, my friend and if whoever I'm talking to says, "who is that?"...I will follow that up with "my blog friend" :) It's amazing how close of friendships that can be made through blogging. I had no idea when I first started, but I'm so thankful for the girls that I've met and am able to support through prayer, emails, etc. I secretly wish that we could have a 'blog reunion' and everyone meet their faves. ha!

I think you are precious and I know I'm always up for a laugh when I make my way to your blog. Thanks for that. :)

((HUGS)) to you, friend!

I totally know what you mean about everything in this post. Blogging has been such a big part of my life since I started last October. Because I'm a "stay at home nanny" I don't have people around me all day and it gets kind of lonely sometimes. But then I'll just hop on my blog, and I've got so many friends to share things with on here. It has been such a blessing to me. People do often look at me weird too when I tell them something about a blog friend. I try to explain it, but they just don't understand!

I love your blog - it always makes me laugh or gives me new insight among other things! Thanks for sharing your life!

SassyEngineer said...

You are too sweet, and I have loved meeting you and other blog friends too. I don't think my husband fully understands it, but I love blogging!

Heather said...

I do the same thing and I know my friends think I am "out there!" I just love you, Megan, and appreciate your prayers and LOVE your posts!!!

Well I am honored to be a pre-blogging, life long friend of yours... but THANK YOU for starting a blog! Now we can stay in touch! You crack me up and it just brings me back to the days of being silly kids. Last night the Montgomery's were over and we watched home videos. Lot's of Megan, "acting and singing"! It was great!!! Can't wait for our dinner date!!

Rach@In His Hands said...
