i am a lucky girl

yesterday amidst the stress of our nation's economy
all the talk about John McCain's suspended campaign
the 'into the night' talks at the Capitol
Letterman acting like a jerk
with my almost empty gas tank~

I hooked up with my new found 'thanks to the world of blogging' friends
i giggled & laughed
i was hugged
i played at Pottery Barn Kids for almost 2 hours
i watched two little birdies flutter around our table at The Corner Bakery
i learned about Chinese adoptions
i learned about her surgeries, one of many
i learned about my new friends
i delighted in my day
& i left with a heart full of gratitude for a precious little girl & her warm, loving mommy and how they made me feel like a lucky girl ....just to know them

Ever since I saw pixel fairies blog through three peanuts almost a year ago I thought this has to be the most beautiful little girl in the world. Do you remember my sending you a picture of this little girl saying I wish to adopt a little girl just like her? I am so glad that you have gotten to know these people and that you all are a blessing to one another's lives. God gives us a precious kiss on the forehead sometimes and I think through this meeting you all have gotten one. Have a beautiful weekend my friend.

That made me smile and I really need a smile today - I have been just a wreck! We are starting to get a little bit of clarity on what happened this morning and Thank The LORD - it has nothing to do with my neighbor. There was an officer killed right in front of our house but there is a lot that they are investigating too.

I cannot tell you how wonderful yesterday was and I felt an instant click with you. We are going to have to meet up again really soon :D You are a kindred spirit!
Ladybug hugs,

BTW - I can't wait to show you the LO I did from yesterday! You are such a beautiful person and Li Li was talking about you to EVERYONE! Miss Paige this and Miss Paige that!

Your blog is just beautiful! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments while I have been "away"

Wow, so glad to have found you too! Looks like you are busy this time of year with cheerleading, being sick and just life in general. Plus maybe looking into adoption? I am so blessed to read your real comments and thoughts. Thank you for putting them out there for the world to share with yo! :)
