Into the Depths: Dinner With a Friend

Dinner With a Friend

I met Paulette tonight! We had dinner and a nice, three hour talk. I am SO glad we did it. We were both beside ourselves with nervousness, but all the fear had no basis. It was great. If you have never been to Paulette's blog, I encourage you to go and read her story. She has a bit of her life in her archives, and I promise you that you will be amazed at where this woman has been. She is the picture of 'beauty for ashes' without a doubt. I can not fathom some of the things this woman experienced in her lifetime. Yet, there was no bitterness, just a kind heart and a sweet and gentle spirit. What an example. Thanks Paulette, I am so glad we decided to get together.

ThankYou for those sweet words. I had an awesome visit with you. Thankyou for letting me share my heart and getting a glimpse of yours.
I am proud of us both for reaching out to each other.
I loved sitting out side in the evening air and visiting. Can you believe that was the first time in this Texas heat we could do that???
It was wonderful. Thanks.
