A beautiful gem ~ Erin

There is a new gem in my life, and her name is Erin. I met her via 5 Minutes For Mom when they had their Ultimate Blog Party a few weeks ago. I had the amazing opportunity to meet hundreds of fabulous women, and she was one of them. We visited each others blogs during the party and we both felt instantly connected, and as they say, the rest is history!

So today Erin posted a great (of course I call it great!) entry titled "5 Blogs That Make Me Think", and guess what?! I not only made her list, but I made it to # 1! I won a blogger award! Yipppeeee!! She absolutely made my day . . . my night. (Thank you, Erin!) This is what she wrote:

Val...a sweet woman I have never met, but feel privileged to call her "friend". Her sincere heart and lovely personality just pours from her words on her Blog.

To have a chance to grin from cheek to cheek and then think "wow, maybe I am blogging for a reason", is just a great feeling. And to be called a "friend" by a total stranger, by someone who I feel like never really was a stranger but a great long lost friend from the very start, is just, well, the best feeling in the world.

Thank you, Erin. I can't possibly even begin to name a list of 5, but please know that you would definitely be on it.

Congrats Val!

I can understand why Erin thinks those things about you. You have a true, sincere quality about you. Something that is very rare these days. :)

Awww, thanks for the sweet things you said about me. I truly mean what I said. You are so real (as real as a virtual friend can be :D ) and I look forward each day to reading your blog. Thank you for your friendship back. It's funny that out of the 900 and some bloggers in that party I was actually able to find a few real good friends. What a blessing. ((hugs))

it's me, Val said...

Leesha . . . Erin, thank you :)
