Allow me to introduce to you my friend, Andi. She has decided to join the ranks with the rest of us in this community of friends known mostly through the Internet. However, she is among those who I am proud to say that I know IRL. as well. We met this year when she became my aide for the last few months of school. Even though she is 'several' years younger than I, we hit it off as soon as we met. At least I think we did...she actually may have thought me a crazy old lady and just humored me until our time was up! :-) Well, even if she DID, I thoroughly enjoyed our time together. She has the most adorable set of boys...3 to be exact...who come next in line to that other adorable set of 3 boys that blessed my home. And, I musn't forget her sweet husband...I hope she'll tell you the story of how they met and fell in love.

Go here to visit with her. Her blog is called Fingerprints On The Glass. It is listed on my sidebar, also. I
think you will enjoy getting to know her. She is a dynamic Christian, serving the Lord, and giving Him the glory for her blessings. There is only one negative that I can think of....well, OK, there's 2. One...she can not be an aide for me next year because she would rather have a classroom all to herself. She accepted a position as a kindergarten teacher in our school. My personal loss..the school's gain. Oh and the other thing...she's like a size 0...which makes me look all the larger next to her. She runs and eats right and all that good stuff...and she wears the highest heels ever. She can actually go places in them, too. Not at all like me. Sure, I can wear them, too.....while I am sitting down, but if you want me to move anywhere, give me a pair of tennis shoes. She and I share a love for purses...except for that white one she got from her friend Shani...

Well, you just go meet her and make her feel welcome! Thanks!

Wow!!!!! I am going to be quite a disappoint after such a gracious welcome! Thanks for the comments you're leaving! I love seeing that you have stopped by to visit! Trying to download a full song is about impossible. If any of your blogging buddies can offer any assistance or feedback, it is welcome. After MUCH work, thanks to caffeine too late, I got a picture on my post THE RIGHT DIRECTION! Thanks for the intro. It means a lot from the Blog Queen! You inspire. You are a dear friend and I knew you were crazy! That's why I love you so much and have a blast with you! You are full of the essence of Life. :)

I used to actually walk in very high heels too - back when I was young and a size 7. I think what we used to call size 7 is now size 0 - right?

I'll head over to Andi's now.
