Reflections on Blogging and Friends


However, as I began to write more and more for print publication, I somewhat ignored my blog, but I kept track socially with many of my blogging friends through Facebook and the occasional blog.

My friend Annie Jefferies, whom I met in that first year of blogging, and her husband, Don, let us know last fall that they would be traveling from northern California to Missouri on a mission trip this winter, and, fortunately for us, they decided to swing through Texas on their way. What a treat!

As they are both interested in history, we were able to take them on a special guided tour of the Old Jail Museum complex in Palo Pinto. We also went up to Fort Richardson in Jacksboro. Then we were able to show them around Mineral Wells, stopping at the Famous Water Company, and taking photos of many of our old homes, churches, and businesses, including both the Crazy Water and Baker Hotels.

Now they have landed in Missouri and are beginning their mission through the Catholic Church there.

We were very proud that they were able to visit with us and see this remarkable part of the United States, and we pray God's blessings on them as they assist in serving the people of Southern Missouri.

If you have never read blogs before, I encourage you to do so. Blogspot.com, livejournal.com, and WordPress.com will open to you a world of fascinating writing. I encourage you to give blogging a chance - read it and then write your own!
