Disney and Friendships

Our vacation has come and gone. We had a great time. The weather was hot. The food was plentiful, I gain 4 pounds! The rides were a blast, at least that's what my husband and daughter told me. Going round and round and up and down isn’t my thing. So, I’m that person you pass on the way to your ride whose waiting for her family. Going to Disney was fun and memorable but I had a added bonus to my trip.

I got to meet a special friend who I was introduced to through my blog. During our vacation I made plans with Lisa from Sharing Life with Lisa to have some girl time. It was such a blessing to visit with someone who is like-minded. I love how she’s not afraid to speak the truth or how she declares her love for Jesus without any apologies. Her smile is infectious and her heart is genuine. We shared so much that day, it was like we had been girlfriends for a lifetime. It’s a day I will always remember and cherish.

The minute I saw her in the lobby at the resort where my family was staying, I knew she was a friend for life! Our lives that once were so separate, God has knitted into a beautiful friendship.

Lisa, you have blessed my life!

I love the encouragement of knowing you got to meet Lisa in person. She's quite a woman of God I can tell. What a gift! I'm still waiting to meet a fellow blogger in person. I'm thankful to know I will meet Lisa and many others at the bloggers retreat in Florida. I can't wait.

Thanks for sharing this pic and sweet note about your vacation.

Oh, Tammy...I am glad you guys had such a great time on your vacation trip...making memories for a lifetime.

I am in North Carolina right now until Tyler and Roger finishes football camp at Western Carolina University on Sunday. Then, it is off to Florida to meet, Kim, Debra and finally, Lisa! I can't wait to be in her presence also. I can only image how infectious her smile is and I know her sweet spirit is equally so.

I will be sharing lots of pictures very, very soon.

Love you!
