welcome, mary

this is my friend mary.
i've written about her before.
she is my oldest friend.
she sometimes snorts when she laughs.
in my eyes, she is the epitome of the confidence
i spoke of yesterday.
she holds her head high.
she celebrates herself.
she celebrates me.
she makes me want to hold my head high, too.
she loves God and tells people why.
she is a wonderful cook—
i've never had anything she made
that wasn't delicious!
she is a very good mom.
she is a model of forgiveness in my life.
she was next to me when i flubbed up royally.
she did not judge me.
she helped me through my very darkest time.
she is a photographer—a good one
and she decided to make it a living.
she LOVES nature.
she loves to laugh and make others laugh.

and

SHE JUST STARTED A BLOG!!!
it's called beauty 2 behold—
which is also the name of her business.

you'll want to visit if you like honest writing
that is quiet, soft and thoughtful.
i appreciate her gift to write this way.
she is just saying it like it is.
no need to be fancy.
it's just mary.

welcome, mary.

Oh Georgia...I literally have tears in my eyes. Your friends are right when they say "beautiful introduction" of what you wrote about me. (Thank you, to your dear friends.) I don't deserve these words. But I will receive them...gladly. You just filled my little tank up. My heart has been heavy...and you brought it joy. I wonder about life's purpose...and you reminded me. I am undeserved of your love and friendship...yet God placed you in my life. I look forward to writing about this in my blog soon. Watch for it, my friend. Now, will you please tell your bloggers the TRUTH about me?? :) I love you dear, Georgia!

And dear bloggers, thank you for your kind words - a couple of you brought tears to my eyes...I didn't know that was possible with people I have never met. Love to you all.
