The highlight of last week was meeting my blogger buddy in person. Myra, Respice Prospice (don’t you love that blog name?) visited my town with her DH. I met them, along with my DH, for breakfast. I was excited. My husband had to tell me twice to catch my breath as we drove to the restaurant. He asked me if I will recognize this couple. I assured him that although I wouldn’t recognize her other half, I would know Myra in a nano second. “You’ll like her!” I told him, because you like me and she’s a lot like me except that she is very tiny. So that is why when I greeted her at the café, the first thing out of my mouth was “Gee, you are tall just like me.” When will I ever get use to being wrong?
The four of us had a wonderful time. It was the biggest blessing to me because they like music just like us and it tickled me to see my dear husband enjoy male camaraderie and share his favorite topic!
Myra is genuine and as interesting in person as her written posts. Blogging has its rewards and meeting up in person is the best part. I love reading other bloggers’ posts about meeting too. It is so much fun to actually see with our eyes the person we think we know so well and, as in my perception, to be surprised (and delighted) to observe our similarities.
A few days ago I read a cute post written by my friend Sharon that targeted our physical appearance here on earth compared to what our bodies will look like when we all get to Heaven. I giggled when I read it, clickhere, because that very day I met Myra and although I was off a few inches in height, I perceived well what I thought she would look like. Unfortunately, I will not get to meet every one of my blogging buddies this side of Heaven, but in the “eternal hereafter” we’ll recognize each other! Talk about a fun blog party!
What do you think it will be like? It is so much fun to imagine!
