Recently, I've been blessed in real life by two women I met through blogging.
I remember my surprise and excitement when I first came across Leah's blog, because we quickly discovered that we live about an hour away from each other. We've been able to get together on several occasions, but last month she did a gracious favor for me. I have a great-aunt who lives in the same town as Leah, and this relative was undergoing rehabilitation following an injury. I knew taking Nathan with me to the care facility would not allow for much visiting, and I decided to e-mail Leah to see if she and her daughters would be open to hosting Nathan at their farm for a couple hours. The girls willingly agreed, and Nathan had a blast. Thank you, Leah, Brittany and Suzanne for your hospitality!
I mentioned to you that we recently met up with my parents for my dad's marathon. We started making plans months ago, and my mom was struggling to find affordable lodging that fit our needs. One night when I couldn't sleep, I suddenly remembered that a couple years ago, I'd learned of a blogger named Kathleen whose family directs a Christian camp in the Black Hills. I looked up the site the next morning and sent my mom the link. She called immediately, and Kathleen set us up in this fabulous cabin:
I'm often grateful for the many wonderful people I've met and "met" through blogging, but wanted to specifically highlight these two ladies and the ways they recently blessed my family. How have you been blessed by the blogging community?
