This Morning I want to say THANK YOU

        This morning I want to take a moment to thank my BEST FRIEND was a little over a year ago in October. My daughter surprised me on my birthday with a trip to see my best friend in California. We had not seen one another in many years, since I live on the East Coast, she on the West. This gift not only gave me time with J but also introduced me to a new world.  J was the first person to ever talk to me about the world of "blogging"  Asking me if I had ever been on line to visit different blogs. I asked "What's a blog" We got on her computer right away so she could show me . It was fascinating.  I  didn't have a computer at this time. I was able to get a little Net Book a few month's later. I let J know about my computer. She encouraged me by phone to begin visiting the blogs she had shown  me during our visit. Every time we talked I was a little more familiar with my net book, J was consistently telling me to think about starting my own blog. Enthusiastically telling me what a good time I would have, how nice it would be to have an outlet like blogging. Every time we talked I was left with a smile, wondering "Could I do it ? could I start my own blog?..

I created "A Loblolly Life" Feb 4th. So J allow me to say your an amazing woman  I am so blessed to have you in my life. Much love and thanks to you friend.....I know the Lord has his hand on this, sometimes as we walk the road the Lord has set before us, our "faces" the voices of our friends and family are the tools God uses to set us on the right path, as we begin a new journey. I am reminded again today how much our heavenly Father loves us. How wonderful life is,  how full of surprises ......I am so blessed.

I hope all of you are blessed today...I want to leave you with this  Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
