I am writing this 8th Girl Time post while spending my last day in Louisiana with my “sister” Becky from Buckets of Burlap. What an incredible week this has been. Of course, as usual, the time has flown by and we are not ready for the week to end.
This is the day where we all get a little mopey knowing our time together is coming to an end for awhile. Thankfully, each time we are together we begin planning for our next visit. Her sweet family will be coming to Tennessee in just a couple of months for my birthday! While they are in Tennessee, we will decide what month we will be coming back to Louisiana.
I totally love this family!
I cannot put into adequate words what each and every one of them mean to me. The best way to say it is that they are a true gift from God to me and to my family and we know God’s gift’s are perfect.
I always tell myself at this point that I will not cry when I leave. But I will. No matter how hard I try, the tears will flow.
I will miss the little fella with the huge imagination. Oh how he makes me laugh.
I will miss the two girls who have become like my extra daughters. What dreams these girls have that I am having the honor of experiencing a little with them. Thank you Lord for these special girls with their special gifts from You.
I will miss Mr. Buckets who has become like a brother. He and God are why this friendship became possible in the first place.
And, Becky….it is impossible for me to tell you what she means to me. It’s strange. A little not understandable at times how our friendship formed and has blossomed in two years. It is nothing but a “God Thing”. He made this friendship. We totally understand each other. We are so much alike. I am so thankful for her.
I can’t wait until June for us to all be back together again.
Time is precious, isn’t it?
Becky and I both picked a blogger to share today for our Girl Time.
Becky wanted me to share Cathy from Cobblestone Farms.
I did follow this lady but somehow she got off of my blog roll. Now, I will be getting her email updates so I don’t miss her beautiful farmhouse updates.
Beautiful white kitchen. Glorious blue Ball Jars. Bead board. Farmhouse sink. Oh my…
Check out Cathy’s beautiful farmhouse when you have a chance.
Thanks, Becky, for sharing Cobblestone Farms with my friends today.
The Fancy Shack is a blog that Becky and I both have just found and really enjoyed looking at this week.
One of our favorite things to do when we get together is look at blogs. We are like little girls pouring over pictures, analyzing each one.
The Fancy Shack had some great photos and vignettes to pour over. She also just found an amazing barn door that looks simply beautiful in her home.
I have decided that I NEED an old barn door. Need…well, maybe not need…WANT would be more like it. I know where a great old barn door is that would be just perfect in my house. It is on my grandparents old barn and my grandfather who was a livestock dealer walked in and out of that barn door thousands of times. My treasure hunting uncle has also walked in and out of that same barn door many many times and still continues to. Thus the reason I won’t be getting that door anytime soon. He needs it more than me.
Anyway, I just went on a little detour there about barn doors.
Head over to The Fancy Shack and introduce yourself to Kimberlee when you have a few minutes. I need to go introduce myself to her now as well.
Enjoy the blog visits, my friends.
Let them know I sent you over.
Be blessed beyond measure and then thank Him for it.
