Sunday I got to meet a woman that I had met "on line". I had heard/read a lot about people meeting "on line" ... some even traveling from across the country. Well this woman was from the Houston area .... (that's quite a haul too!) ... and was coming to the area ... so I asked the Warden if I could meet her ... and she said OK!
So Sunday after church we stopped by a family reunion and I got to meet Katy (OK, her real name is Sarah .... but seems I have a hard time remembering names ... and she is from Katy). Anyway, she and her family were gracious enough to take a few minutes and allow me to introduce myself to her and her immediate family (Ryan, Caleb and Logan).
She has a great blog full of pictures, news of her expanding family and the values they live by. It's worth a read so click here and check her out. I especially like reading her "Thankful Thursdays" ... makes me more aware of my surroundings as I should be.
I hear so much about "young people" these days and how bad the values are. How they don't "take responsibility", how they raise their kids ... yada yada yada. If you ever watch the TV news or read the paper, you have been deluged with how bad the world is becoming. I don't believe it anymore than I believe in man made global warming ..... and this young family is just more PROOF. I agree that there is plenty of bad young people out there (always have been) ... but there is a LOT of good ones too. Come ride with me some day and I'll introduce you to some of them.
Thanks Katy, Ryan, Caleb and Logan for taking a few minutes from your reunion to meet me. (And thanks to Mark and Karen for the invite.)
And another thought just hit me ..... having the Warden's permission to meet women "off the net" might come in REAL handy!!!
