For the last couple of years I have been "online friends" with some wonderful ladies. Well, this past weekend, at the Teach Them Diligently Homeschool and Parenting Convention, I finally got to meet most of them... in real life! ;)
Certain people have thought I was crazy when I said I have friends from all over the country that I've never even met. From Florida, Georgia, Virginia, West Virginia, Arkansas, and many other states. It's almost hard to believe that we all came together this past weekend.
It's funny when you meet someone you've known for so long but have never really hugged! There is a deep connection, that feels like you've always been in "real life friends." It's like having a long-distance family member that you never get to see. But when you come together... it's like you've never been apart.
Yet, leaving... I felt like I never will see them again. Although, even if I do not... our friendships are so deep and meaningful, and not just because we met in Nashville. No! We truly love each other! These ladies want to see good come to my life, just much as I want to see good come to their lives. We are all happy with each other when one is successful... and pray for each other through life's storms.
I overheard a conversation, at the convention, about how being a blogger is hard work. I'm not going to tell you or anyone else that it's an easy. But the benefits out way the work. These real life relationships, with other bloggers who understand your world... is such a blessing! They are walking with me through this life... as I walk with them... even if we mostly only see each other on social media.
