THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Friendship Tree...


When I saw this picture, it brought back thoughts of when I first started this blog. I remember the excitement of getting my first comment (thank you Elizabeth) and wondering how anyone was going to come across my place in blogland.
I was the only heart on my tree.
Now I have met so many incredible people. Every day I know that my girlfriends will be checking on me. I check each of your sites daily and read all of your posts. There are days I am smiling and days I am crying with you. Each day has been a treasure. I do whatever I can to offer you support and guidance through my words, or in person if I can. You have no idea how much I appreciate the fact that you do the same. I appreciate every kind word and prayer. Thanks for sharing your lives with me. I would be lost in this craziness without you.

I feel the same...a great support system has been built through bloggy land. I am so glad to have found your site and have learned so much from you! I love the picture you chose for this post.

I too had no idea what my little blog would 'morph' in to!!

I am certainly glad that I decided to start one!

Stacy said...

I feel the same. I appreciate all of the support you offer me. I enjoy thinking about you on Saturday morning with your cup of coffee surfing while I'm doing the same, with tea of course. :)

I don't know how I would endure this wait without you and so many others. Thank you.

It is a great support ! I have had some of the best advice and support come from fellow bloggers-especially when I was in China.
It is wonderful!

There is a reason we are all here together and we found each other. I believe, no meeting is a chance meeting. I'm glad I got the opportunity to know you!

treasure each of you!

Thanks for helping to make this
long and sometimes difficult
journey more easy!

It's a totally different world in blogland. For instance, if someone had told me a year ago that I'd meet two virtual strangers for dinner one night, I wouldn't have believed them. I'm so glad I did, though!

We bloggy moms gotta stick together!

I feel the same way.. I can't wait until I have 20 comments on each one of my posts... I just love that other people are out there with me in the same situation that I am in.. We are all a big family..
