I'm addicted.... to all of you!

I think about your families and your stories. My heart aches for Ella Grace and for Kristen. I think about your families and the mountains you are having to climb. Sheridan is a doll! Love looking at pictures of that little guy!  AB&C's mom Joany is dealing with more than I can imagine. I tune in to find out how Sarah's quilt shop is coming along. Each day I look for more of you to follow.

As I'm walking in the door, my first thought is to turn on the computer and find out what you all have been doing all day! My daughters would talk about their on-line friends like they had grown up with them and I'd think, "You are so young. You don't know what you're talking about."

But they did know. They knew the friendships that grew from typing black letters on a white page; knew what it was like to have these friends on your heart so strongly that by the end of the day, you had butterflys in your stomach waiting to hear their latest news; knew the bonds that formed when you read words that described the very emotions you had been experiencing.

We have never met face to face, but please know you are thought of as friends.

cindy - you are so right! it is unbelievable how well you can "get to know someone" by reading their blog! our hearts and our families are poured out into these blogs and we are able to connect in a way that is very unique. i feel so lucky to have this "online support" and it is such a GREAT resource, too! we definitely are "in this together"!!! :)

I think my husband thinks I'm crazy sometimes, but I really have found such amazing friends in Blogland. It's great to follow you guys, and so funny to know that we all "know" so many of the same people. It's a lovely community.

You are SO right... I cherish the friendships I've developed in the blogging community. I feel connected to the families, and they are fun to follow and learn more about them every day. Some people think it's a bit weird, but that's only because they've never belonged to a community like ours! :) Love following your blog!

P.S. thanks for the shout out for Sheridan :)

I think you summed it up nicely - what this blogging community is for all of us!
