there is nothing quite like it!
Five Minute Friday --WIDE
I'm a North East kind of girl. Grew up in Western New York, moved to Pennsylvania for college... and marriage. Never been farther west than Toledo, Ohio, although I have made it to Canada a few times and Florida occasionally (which is really just a bunch of Northerners that can't take the snow).
My circle of influence is small, a few close friends, a great church. My growing up years are ONE school, ONE home, ONE church. I don't do change well. I like small and intimate.
Then I started blogging and a whole new world opened up. Add twitter to that and I have friends all over the world. I converse with Ireland, Italy, California, the west side of Canada, the mid west, the South... and it's fun... and amazing.
And in just ONE MONTH (and a few days) I'm going to get to meet some of these friends face to face (and I'm a little nervous) ... I originally typed scared to death, but my Allume roomies are going to hold my hand and help me with that.
It's a little bit how I imagine heaven is going to be. All different kinds of people, from different walks of life, cultures, etc., all meeting together and having all things in common.
