Well...the Dallas trip is over, I met some AMAZING women in person for the first time since "knowing" them online for several years now, my stomach is still sore from all the laughter, I will never view shopping carts in the same way, I have TONS of new scrapbooking supplies, everyone made it home safely, and we are all back to our normal daily routines now.
To say this was a fun trip would be an understatement! I never, ever expected to love these online friends as much as this trip has proved to me that I do. What started out as a common interest in scrapbooking has become so much more. We have laughed together, cried together, prayed together, and shared our lives with one another. Each scrapbook page we have created and shared with our online community has been sort of like a "diary" into each one of our lives. To finally meet these ladies face-to-face....hug their necks....and spend nearly 3 days together....well, it was just amazing. I am so thankful that I got to be a part of this.
Hubby helped me make a little slideshow to a very sweet song. Make sure your sound is on, and really listen to the words of the song while you look at the pictures. My favorite part of the song is when it says:
If you weep, I will weep with you
If you sing for joy the rest of us will lift our voices too
But no matter what you feel inside there's no need to pretend
That's the way it is in this circle of friends
In this circle of friends we have one Father
In a circle of friends we share this prayer
That we'll gather together no matter how the highway bends
I will not lose this circle of friends
Paula, Roe, Lisa, Jenn, Krissy, and Trisha.....thank you from the bottom of my heart.
