A while back, one of my sweet online buddies mailed me this potholder out of the blue. That is definitely a perk of being a blog friend to someone. Sweet notes and gifts in the mail – just because you were on someone’s mind. Not to mention the links and freebies they send your way. The email support system they provide. The laughter and tears. All from the comfort of your own home.
Lisa said she saw this potholder and couldn’t resist getting it for me because it had bees on it. Here’s the conversation that ensued after I opened the package:
Morgan: “Who is that from? Miss Dawn? Miss Bunny Trails? WHO???”
Me: “It’s from Sislisa.”
Morgan: “Oooohhh! She’s the one at Growing in Grace!”
Husband: “You mean the kids know all these imaginary online people, too?”
I had to laugh. So how many of you blogging addicts out there have children who are up to date on all your imaginary friends? I don’t know about you, but I love blog buddies. They aren’t imaginary – even if you never get to meet them. I guess that is one blogger pitfall that isn’t such a pitfall after all. Even if the husbands sometimes think that it is.
