At The Farm Meets Cow Patty Surprise

Many of you know Nezzy from her wonderful blog.  Today I had the supreme pleasure of meeting Nezzy and her wonderful husband.  Wow, what a delightful surprise!

I am in my office, wishing I was any other place, and in walks a beautiful women.  She says, I'm looking for Gail.  I said, That's me, how can I help you.  Now all kinds of things are running through my mind, is this an inspector, an auditor or just someone who has a complaint...I tremble a little inside.

She tells me her name and says, get around here and give me a hug.  I did just that, and not just once, we kept hugging and smiling and laughing.  Her husband took pictures of us as we said pizza, cheese and I said let's get this over with.  I wonder if hubby had a wide angle lens to fit me in but he managed. I can imagine these shots, me a frumpy, dumpy, pudgy by the cover girl of Cow Patty Surprise.

I remembered later I had my camera in my purse and that's when I kicked myself.

Mr and Mrs Nezzy were returning from a personal trip and the fact that she took the time to look me up is so amazing.  Her trip had not been an easy one.

Her heart shined through as she showed me pictures of Angel, a girl from her church who is fighting cancer.  I saw pictures of her beautiful grand children but we had little time to share. They were exhausted from their return trip, emotionally and physically and still had the long trip home ahead of them.

We sometimes think, we may not truly know the people who we visit in blogdom, but Nezzy was the jewel I had imagined.  Her love of God, and people and farming showed through in our short visit. The truth of Nezzy is she is her sweet, awesome self on and off her blog.

Want to meet a wonderful person and hear some great stories, visit Nezzy.  I can promise you will not be disappointed.

Thank you, Nezzy for the wonderful gift of your visit.

You and your family are in my prayers tonight and always.

I truly believe we can tell who our blog buddies are in "real life".
There are some...not you...who you know are not sincere nor honest but for the most part we get to know the real person behind the blog name. They reveal themselves in a way you don't always get in person when you first meet them.
Every blogger I have met in person is every bit the person they have represented on their blogs. I love that.

That was so sweet of her to look you up... what a pleasant surprise. I've met one of my bloggy friends & it was awesome. You do feel you get to know a person by their blogging... and though most you'll never know in person, it's a nice to know they're out there.

That is awesome Gail. She does sort of look modelish :) I'm glad you posted this because I was wondering why there had been no post by her. :)

I just found this post I guess I was not blogging then. I am certainly glad you showed it. Nezzy sounds like a woman with a heart bigger than Texas. I love her blog she is such a happy person her attitude is infectious. I am do happy you met her. Maybe someday she and you will make it to Canada. Take care my friend. B
