Today is a special day for a dear friend, Edie. Many of you know her from her marvelous blog, Life in Grace. She is a very special, southern lady who immediately fills you with her warmth, charm and gracious manner.
She is a beautiful person inside and out. I stumbled upon her blog about a little over a year ago and can't stop reading ever since. Her writing is heartfelt and sincere. You immediately feel like you have been friends for years. She wears her heart on her sleeve and shares all her domestic goddess tips with those of us who are a little more lowly in the domestic realm. A special person like Edie inspires and encourages you, draws you in with her southern charm, and touches your heart.
I have learned so much from Edie. You can visit here, here and here for just a taste of how wonderful she is. It was with a very heavy heart that I visited her blog on December 26 to read of the sad loss her family had suffered. You can read about it here. As a blog friend I felt helpless. I wanted more than anything to reach out and lend a hand. I wished I lived closer to her and could give her a warm hug. Today is her birthday and her blog friends are joining together to send her lots of love and cyber hugs. I hope she is feeling the love and knows that she has touched many hearts and lives.
Thank you, Edie for being real~for opening your heart and home to us here in blogland. I pray that your day is as special as you are. May the Lord fill you with His peace. Hugs to you dear friend.
Please join us at Edie's blog to wish her a very Happy Birthday!!
