Friendship - Who would have guessed?

Saturday I had the lovely opportunity to meet Isabel of Maison Douce
at the Portland Antique Show. Check out Isabel's blog to see
great pictures of her booth.

In June Annie from In My Dreams and Jone from Deo Writer
came by for a cup of tea and cookie in my backyard.
Who would have guessed we would be making friends this way, online no less!
When we are young, we make friends at school, at the swimming pool, out in the neighborhood.
When we are parents, we make friends with other parents.
When we work, we make friends at work.
But finding friends just out in the airwaves is truly amazing.
I have met some very special friends this way and it is always so fun to finally meet face to face.
Each day I meet new friends that leave comments here for me to read, or I visit their blog and say to myself "what a nice person, I like what they are doing and would like to meet them". I look forward to meeting more of you face to face as we travel and embrace life.
Friendships are special.
They come in many forms.
Some for a moment and some for a lifetime.
I treasure each one as life moves along.
Thanks for friendship.
