Of course, I would add Karen, but she already added me so I guess she's already added! ;) Go Karen!!
I want to name just a couple of my blog buddies, that I met online BEFORE we had blogs!
Meet Carri at http://carri-me-away.blogspot.com/ She stays very busy as a momma of 8 beautiful homeschooled children, and 1 more on the way in about 4 months!! I found her on a Yahoo group several years ago & even though we have never met in person, I consider her a GREAT friend that I will meet in Heaven if we don't get to meet on earth!! She loves the Lord, she loves her husband, and she loves her children. She is a very loving and generous woman of God and is absolutely Hero material!!! Please visit her blog and get to know her!
Meet Jennifer at http://momma-of-five.blogspot.com/ She also stays very busy with her 5 children!!! I love going to her blog to see what they are up to because it always seems fun at their house! From making funny faces on a potato, to doing daddy's hair in multiple mini ponytails, to adventures with Hobo Spiders in their yard!! Anyone that can take pictures of those icky things is also Hero material!! Go Jennifer!! Life is an adventure there! Go to her blog and visit this sweet momma! ... And she said my dirty house was CLEAN! LOL Surely she deserves a loyal commenter award for that!!! :)
All right! Go collect your awards & follow the directions!! Hope this brings you more "fans" to your blogs. This has been fun! THANK YOU KAREN!!!!

Your MOST Welcome! :)
Thank you for your other comments, I agree with you about how wonderful it is to have like-minded friends whether their local or online. My place is at the church and I’m learning a lot even through the trials and hardships. Besides I believe God is using me, since I am different & strong in my convictions to be a witness for Him. Isn’t that what we all want anyway?
So my new blogging buddy, enjoy your reward and thanks for the kudos! (((hugs)))

Nope, we usually use Sunset Cottages. A very friendly cabin rental. Beautiful cabins & close to Dollywood. We will have to check that other place out as well. :)
I’m so looking forward to our next vacation! LOL

You are such a blessing to me.
I was astounded to read your post introducing me~
I have always thought of you as a good and dear friend.
I feel just like you that we will meet when the Lord desires that to happen either here on Earth or in heaven!
I think we should do another video of ourselves again!
Thank you Shannon for the uplifted words and encouragement.
It means more than you know..
you really liked the Preserve huh!?
We did too!

I do remember the video!!! It’s on my shelf in the office. :) I need to convert it to a dvd so I can watch it on my computer. :) I would LOVE to do another video!!! :D
Yes, we really liked the Preserve! We talk about it all the time. The mountain views are BREATHTAKING from way up there! I don’t know how Mark found it to take you there, but I am so glad he did and you got to enjoy it and share it with us on the group & Jerry got to take me!! :) Woo Hoo!! We are planning on going back this summer & I can’t wait!
