There are these ladies I am friends with on line, well I guess you could call them “virtual sisters”. We have our own little private group on Facebook and we go there when we need to get help on a blog issue, vent about life, ask for prayers, or laugh our heads off. In this group there are six of us, which means six different personalities. Did I mention we are all female too? 🙂 But we always respect each others opinions and know that we can speak frank and roll with the punches.
Anyway, in a week when I have felt much love, much support, and much guidance I found that my “virtual sisters” that have never met me in person were truly just plain old “friends”. Drop the virtual shall we, there’s love and care intertwined between us. Here’s how I know this.
I received this from them at my Dad’s Memorial Service, a peach tree. The other wonderful part is one of the ladies drove over an hour to bring it to the funeral home. God bless her soul!
I also received a visit from one of the friends. I was to be in Austin, Texas this past week with her for a conference for Agriculture and blogging. She was making her way to a town north of where we live and made a stop this morning to see me and drop off a few goodies. There is an Ag swap at the convention, her and one of my other pals decided to gather up some stuff for little ol’ me!
But the best part of this morning was getting to meet my friend Nicole in person. You can find her blog by clicking here. If you are not familiar with the farm life or are and want to see a different perspective, make sure to stop by her blog. She is really incredible about sharing the world of agriculture!
Here’s what I want to say……
If you have the opportunity
Take the opportunity and do something this week to give grace and love to another, offer it to the person that would least expect it from you. Seriously take me up on this challenge, then come back here, comment, and let me know how it went. I plan to pass this on, I plan to show someone that would least expect it how much I care.
Grace is a gift,
