Girls Write Out
Thursday, July 13, 2006

The girls were back together again this past weekend!! We didn’t get to spend near the time we wanted to together, but at least we were able to grab a coffee and share a laugh here and there.

While reflecting over the past weekend, talking with friends, meeting some of my cyber friends for the first time face-to-face, I couldn’t help but think how blessed I am to have my writer friends. Writing can be a lonely business, but fortunately, I’ve never had to deal with that—thanks to the Internet and my ACFW buds who stand ready to help.

Thanks to all you encouragers who offer chocolate on my insecure days (by the way, I’m kind of having one now, just so you know). Thanks for making comments on my crazy blogs (please do so now or I’m going to feel pretty stupid). Thanks for reading my books about middle-aged women (you have, haven’t you?) when you haven’t even sprouted your first gray hair. (The least you could do is work up a good frown line.)

I know this isn’t National Friendship Day, but well, I’m having a sappy moment, okay? Just want you to know--I’m thankful for each one of you!

The song "That's What Friends Are For" sang it's way across my brain as I read your post! I love the picture of you all. I for one am looking forward to seeing you all in Dallas!!!!

sniff...we all have those moments, Diann. I wish I could hand you a 1lb. box of See's chocolates right now (only I'd have to remove the toffee first. sorry.)

Here's to friends!

Don't want you to feel stupid. Thank God for friends! I'm having one of those insecure days too, please share that chocolate.

"Friends are friends forever, if the Lord's the lord of them," the old song goes.

What a unique friendship the four of you have. I'm sure you all feel blessed.

Great picture! Enjoyed seeing it.

What a great time, though not nearly enough. I love going to writer' conferences because I know I'm not crazy, just a writer. There is something so powerful about finding your soulmates, huh? I miss you guys already!!

LOL! Okay, Gina, I'll share the chocolate--minus the toffee, Julie. ;-)

Can't wait to see everyone in September!!! Whooohoooo!!!!

Oh, Diane - I've read your books! In fact, I'm afraid you've spied on me a few times - I've read some things that hit pretty close to home! LOL

I know those days, I just broke out of a few. So I'll toss my chocolate your way along with a cyber hug!

Now get back to writing. I'm anxious for your next book. :o)

I sympathize, but in a different way. I'm in the "baby" stage (boys ages 4,2 and 5 months) and today was a pull-your-hair-out kind of day. I was feeling pretty down and fighting one of those headaches that come from holding back the tears. Know what I mean? However, I'm mixing my chocolate with icecream. So I'll throw a few icecream sandwiches and fudge bars your way!! Enjoy. And here's to those calories staying OFF the hips. LOL!

Thank you for your books, your blog and just being you. Being a busy mom of three, I find a reprieve in my other world.

Wow, you guys are great! Your comments were so encouraging, who needs chocolate? Okay, I do, but still I appreciate your comments!!

Colleen and I are off to the Cleveland, Ohio Women of Faith Conference this weekend. If you're planning to be there, PLEASE look us up!!!

Diann, I think you're way cool, I love your writing, and I would just love a day to kick back with the kind of gal pals you hang out with. You are all such amazing women and you thoroughly bless my socks off and back on again! I can't wait til we get to heaven and we all get to hang with Jesus...and yes, there will be books in heaven!
Love you!
