Our Final Stop...I saved the BEST for last.

I was as crazy about driving to Florida as I was flying, if I could I would have zapped us all there; BUT, on the way I noticed we drove through Chattanooga Tennessee. I immediately thought of Denise a very dear blogger friend I never would have imagined I would be able to meet. I contacted her on facebook and we set up a meeting time for when we were coming home back through Tennessee.
Denise is so special to me because she has prayed me through a lot of difficult and unsure times with my parent's health. She is so faithful, if she tells you she is going to pray, she will and she will check back with you to see what God has done. I appreciate her so much. She has become my "in real life" friend and I hope one day her and Eddie can come and visit us in Michigan. They will be most welcomed to stay at our home.

The kids think she is SUPER and they are amazed I met her on the internet and it seemed like the whole family knew her all of our lives. Pink is Denise's favorite color and my little Emily wanted to give her her Disney shirt, that is how lovable Denise is.
In the picture below I am thanking Denise for her love and faithfulness to pray for all of her friends. She is even more terrific in person, if that can be possible, and I could NO WAY have gone by Chattanooga Tennessee without stopping to meet her. I want to thank my sweet Tito for going home one day later so that we could stop to meet Denise....what a blessing.
Denise gave me a candle one of my favorite things, a notepad and an angel. These gifts I will cherish. Thank you for everything my friend.
