Chan's contest for dishcloth swappers



All of us dishcloth swappers have been sorted into three different groups. I was lucky to be placed into Chan's group. (Hi Chan!) Each group has a contest and here is the one for my group:

So, what gives you hope? My family and especially my daughter. She has this sweet quality about her that always leaves me wondering what she will be like when she is a woman. She comes to me sometimes, just out-of-the-blue, and will tell me she loves me. I love this picture of her.


How do you recharge and get energized when you're feeling drained? Well, currently I am being energized artificially by coffee but that is just for the daily grind. Other wise I am recharged by my husband when he gives me a hug and kiss then says how much he loves me, by my daughter when she makes her new brother laugh with a funny face, or by some little thing like a new book or a new pattern and some yarn (these things make me think how lucky am I with this life!). And what is your favorite summer adventure, whether it's a memory or an item on your agenda for this year or both? I will go with a memory....The summer that I flew to Morocco to meet my future husband. We had met online and then talked on the phone. As soon as I heard his voice, I knew he was the one. His voice made me feel peaceful and as if we had always been together. The summer of 2000 I flew to Morocco alone to meet someone that I had only talked to on the phone and chatted with online. Everyone was worried about me, but I wasn't. I knew everything would be fine. And it was. We traveled around Morocco and all the while I felt comfortable and safe. The following year he came to the U.S.,we married, and the rest is my happily ever after.

Lucky me! I get to wander around and read great blogs. What a beautiful young lady, and sweet stories about your wonderful husband. Thanks too for posting on the swap's blog that you had posted!

You've been "tagged" for the "7 Things" meme... details on my blog. :D

Love the story about meeting your husband, too sweet! A friend of mine met her husband online, and they've been together about 6 years and are still wonderful together. Good things do still happen to good people!
