One of the pure pleasures of blogging is to have opportunities to meet blog friends face to face.
As authors of Mennonite Girls Can Cook. . .
we are being given that privilege more often than ever before.
Each book signing brings with it a new experience and it never fails to bless us.
In some ways ..
it feels a little like a surprise party because we don't know who will come and of course we never really know where blogging friends live.
When they walk in the door and tell us what their blog name is or who they are in their commenting. .
it is as though we have reconnected after a long time rather than meeting for the first time.
The other blessing is that we as book authors have opportunities to sit together and chat in the quieter moments and catch up face to face instead of the quick emails that fly between us each day.
Travelling between one store to the other also provides endless chats and deeper conversations and relationships that are rooted in our common faith and the end goal. .
that truly matters most.
I came home on Saturday evening feeling incredibly blessed.
Our evening ended with dinner out with our husbands.
As always ..
I feel richer for being witness to lovely people.
I wondered again. .
why God has allowed this amazing journey.
For ever thankful. ..
