However, there are a whole slew of "virtual" friends that I felt I needed to thank. Instead of tracking down snail mail addresses, I felt it was pretty appropriate to just publicly thank them here on my blog.
Many years ago, when I first figured out there was a whole virtual world out there, I discovered Yahoo groups. I joined one & found many others there with similar interests to mine. Many were scrapbooking
fiends hobbyists like myself. I grew to know them over the years of doing swaps & chatting. Our group expanded & grew. I was even able to meet some of them IRL when I traveled to Pennsylvania for a weekend crop a few times (an 8 hour drive!). A couple years ago Deb & I started a smaller group of those who wanted a smaller group to connect with & wanted to discuss every day aspects of our lives. I include those favorite ladies as well.
So I want to thank Steph, Holly, Monica, Jodi, Deb, Sheri, Christa, Joanne, Linda Mac, Krysandra, Jen, Sharlene, & everyone else at the CSF & CWOLF groups I may have forgotten to mention by name (hmm, this is starting to sound like the Oscars or something! LOL)
Then about two years ago Deb told me about SHS - what a wonderful group that has turned out to be. There are so many great ladies on there. There is knowledge abounding about healthy eating/living, homeschooling, curriculum choices, Christ-like living, and so much more.
I hesitate to "name names" so I'm just going to thank everyone over at SHS. So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, thanks for being a blessing.
I thank my God every time I remember you. ~Philippians 1:3 (NIV)
