**EDIT** I had this posted but the story got even better this morning when I checking in with my Tweets (Twitter buddies)...you can see the whole evolution of FRED if you START HERE on Lydia's blog and follow the links for the creation of this card filled with love. There is some BLOG CANDY along the way too.
Do you have "online" friends? I do, I have an amazing group of blogger ladies with whom I have become great friends with on Twitter. The were so kind when Mum passed away and sent me thoughtful words of support. What I did not know, was, that these wonderful creative women had created a card, and sent it to each other to sign and today, while I was feeling sick and blue, it arrived in the mail. I cannot tell you how I felt. So touched, so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life, so fortunate to be able to call them friends.
Here is the lovely card they sent...from coast to coast, north to south and all over...from Texas (Lydia (probably the smartest sassiest girl i will ever get to meet..and i will meet her & Dana who I think will have the biggest guffah laugh ever when I finally get to hear her), California (Lisa I think maybe the sweetest perosn you will ever meet), Kentucky (Mary Dawn I think quiet...but still waters run deep), Washington DC (Leslie crazy funny and totally dancing to her own drummer, and I WILL meet her in July and dance to that drummer too!!!), Nova Scotia (Chelle new mama, sweetheart, brave, loving and courageous), Alberta (Dreena changing her life and others one hoop at a time..so very proud of you) and BC (Tara this girl is going to be an amazing photographer, she is bravely making her dream come true).
Thank you so much...this is a treasure and my mum would have daintly picked off the pearls and saved them...LOL I will keep it all together and treasure it! Thank you, your friendship means so much to me, you have no idea. OH and girls I am sorry it took me three days to go to my mail box LOL!
