What I learned this week...

I can't say I gained any profound wisdom this week, but I did learn a few things that really touch my heart...

1. It truly is possible to make a REAL friendship through blogland, I met Debra here and I can't tell you what a blessing she has been in my life even before I met her face to face!

2. When your best friend decides to celebrate her birthday ALL week, you WILL gain weight!!!

3. The power of inertia will quickly and forcefully remove your body from a tube when the boat decides to take a sharp turn...LOL

4. When you are trying to garden organically, it becomes quite addictive to squish caterpillars!

5. There are few things I enjoy more in life than laughter...

6. It's easy to get all giddy and caught up when someone you are super close to is feeling for the first time the rush of feelings for someone special... :)

Have a beautiful day!


  1. I met my first blog friend IRL last week and it rocked! The blog world is an amazing place. I hope squishing caterpillars burn those extra calories. And yes, there's nothing like laughter. We laugh a lot in our house too.

  2. Laughter is the best thing, Ever. Hope your friend had a great Birthday week and that the caterpillars run from now on!

  3. I can second all that my friend. You know I can!!! LOL
    Love you!

  6. Kathy,

    Oh my stars...the inertia one cracked me up as it took me right back there on the lake again!!! lol

    The picture of all three of us with the windblown look is too cute!

    And I can tell you straight up I love you in real life love...I'm grateful to the Lord for bringing us together. I love your precious spirit!! And your husband is a great Captain...oh my gosh, I am cracking myself up again thinking about us bilging water, almost tipping over, hitting a boat and all we are worried about is catching a good picture while poor Captain Mike is like "how did I get this crew?"...He was such a good sport!!

    Much love to you, my friend...I loved what you learned this week!
