Gracie Owns Me

On Friday, we had the wonderful pleasure to be able to meet two blog friends who I have never met before! It is always so exciting to meet followers for the first time! Meet Gary and Bobbi, from the blog Gracie Owns Me. They were passing through town, and we met to have lunch at a local restaurant. It was like we were always friends. These two wonderful people are warm, thoughtful, and fun to be with! And both have a great sense of humor!! Bobbi's blog is about her daily life, told first from her point of view, then from her little dog Gracie's point of view. And very often Gracie's viewpoint of things does not agree with her mistress! I will admit that Gracie DID own me from the first time I ever read her Bobbi's blog. If you are so inclined, stop over and say hi to her from Ginny. You will always get a good laugh or learn something interesting.


"Just as lotions and fragrance give sensual delight, a sweet friendship refreshes the soul".

Isn't that the most interesting thing? It's exactly like you've always known each other and not uncomfortable in the least. Funny. Glad you had this happen.

Their smiles that you captured are so pleasant and appealing. What I would say...'contagious' as I'm smiling right back at 'em.

Nice to meet online friends for the first time, and I hope that the friendship was kindled and grows with time.

Loved your post.

Good for you guys! Meeting someone you have developed a friendship with over the Internet is always so exciting...I have had the pleasure of meeting five Internet friends....it was wonderful! I had three blogs at one time, I had made Abby Girl, my mini schnauzer a blog for her point of view of life with humans but it was demanding to much of my time and I would sacrifice prayer time, bible study time to attend the three blogs...I deleted two of them and was going to deleter The Joy of Denim and Lace but the LORD instructed me to keep this one....
Just thought of you and wanted to wish you a most wonderful day.... Hugs from Arkansas

That's so great! One of the ways the internet is making this world smaller.

Chatty Crone said...

That is so wonderful isn't it to meet the people we talk too. Looks like you had a good time Ginny.
I looked at your new header today - gorgeous - and the words you have there- how you view God in every day life.
For a minute I thought that the flower was how you saw God - to tell you the truth - some days I do see Him in flowers.

I was so excited reading about you meeting Gary and Bobbi. I follow her blog also and this was so neat!!! Two of my favorite blogs and the writers got to meet. YAY.... Hugs. LJ

Annie said...

Oh Yay! So exciting to meet blogging friends. We'll get there yet. Don has a 50th high school reunion in 2013 in Missouri. If we are that far, we are going to have to go just a bit farther since my sister is in Clarksville, West Virginia. That's just a hop, skip, and a jump from Virginia.

Lynn said...

I am intrigued and will stop over at Gracie's/Bobbi's blog. Such a lovely picture of the four of you. Blessings.

Ann said...
