I'm Thankful For... friend, Deb.

I know I've blogged about my friendship with Deb before, but I thought I'd post a very quick recap.

We met through a homeschool project shortly after I began homeschooling B six years ago. It was called Flat Travelers & was based on the book Flat Stanley. You made paper dolls & sent them off to visit with friends. The dolls visits were documented & then sent back to you. A fun project. Deb was one of the first we did an exchange with. She was just starting to get in to scrapbooking and I was just getting in to homeschooling. We began e-mailing each other & a friendship was born. We've even managed to meet IRL a few times - typically yearly. Sometimes I go out to visit her & her family in New York or they come to Maine for a visit.

But Deb & I also chat in Yahoo Messenger a lot. In fact, we used to have a standing chat time - every Wednesday night at 8pm. Then life got busy. Deb & Brian adopted some more kiddos & life got busy here with extra children and activities.

However, through it all, Deb has been a great friend. Even though a five hour drive separates us, I know that she is there for me any time I need her. Thanks, Deb. Be sure to check out her blog over at Following the Narrow Path.


  1. Gotta love friends like that... unfortunately mine are now like 24 hrs away from me. :( So, in regards to that i have to say I am so thankful for the internet. That way we have the opportunity to keep in touch with our loved ones that live so far away!

  2. What a nice tribute to friendship.

  3. Ahhh that's really sweet!

  4. I love that blogging, email, and chatting all make it easy to keep or make long distance friendships.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
