Faithful Fridays

I wanted to share a little story with you all. When I was working and work became slow I started reading the Country Sampler forum more often. I noticed that Tammy S. as we know her on the forum had started a blog. I clicked on the link one day and I was addicted! From her blog I clicked on another and so on and so on. I couldn't look at the pictures on CS forum because they were blocked for security reasons but I could see the pictures on the blogs. I was in heaven what a way to help pass times. After a short time I had come to love Tammy and her family. I knew who they all were and what seemed like everything about them. It seemed as if she had the perfect husband and perfect life. I often joked I want a blog husband and a blog life. Donna my boss/friend would laugh at me because I would say it all the time. After many months of reading Tammy's blog I realized it was her faith in God I really admired and her involvement in her church. I wrote Tammy a few months ago and thanked her for inspiring me to get into Church. I am happy to say that my family and I have been attending Church regularly since before Thanksgiving. Tammy has been a great person to get to know and I am proud to call her my friend. I just wished we lived closer to one another. We all share our everyday lives and tips but you never know just what someone is going to take away from your blog. Thank you Joy for starting Faithful Fridays so I could tell everyone how thankful I am to have met you and your Mom.

I'd like to add I am thankful for all the great comments left that touch my heart and lift my spirits. Thank you.

Okay, Donna, this time you made me cry...and I already had my makeup on for the day!

Thank you so much for this touching post that means so much to me. I definitely don't have a perfect life, just a blessed one. If there's one thing I would want someone to take away from my blog, it would be faith in God! Thanks for sharing this! I'm so glad we met too!

Have a great weekend!

What a blessed story. Thank you for sharing. I'm so happy that you and your family are in church. Serving God is the best decision that anyone could ever make. He will be with us always...even to the end.

I agree...Tammy is special.

Hi Donna, I have to totally agree with what you wrote about Tammy!
She is so spiritual and this comes through to all readers and I'm so happy you found what you were 'feeling' through her Blog and friendship.
Bless you and thanks so much for sharing this with us.
